The thermal cutoff device blew and must be replaced. It acts like a fuse when the iron gets too hot. Thay are very
cheap and it would be well worth replacing. Hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: Iron heating sporadically and sensor lights working sporadically

sounds like a loose connection in the power transfer, some piece of metal may be broken or the cord itself may be damaged in some place, you could try replacing the cord. I would just go and buy a new iron. They aren't all that expensive anymore. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I hope you solve your problem. If you want any further help or have any other questions, please let me know, otherwise have a Good Day.

SOURCE: Iron will not heat. Iron worked last week, went

the heating element has failed....probably

You would need to open your iron to test the thermostat:
Open the Iron up. Use a volt meter to test the thermostat and heating element. With the thermostat turned to a high heat setting. It won't matter which electrical connection at the thermostat you place the probes on, just put one on one side and the other on the other terminal at the thermostat. If you find continuity(Meter needle jumps, or digital read out show little or no resistance found) your thermostat is ok. Then place your probes across the two leads on the heating element. You should read little or no resistance. Any parts found showing an open open circuit(Zero on your meter) will need replacing.Contact small appliance.com and they should be able to order one for you. If there is anything else I can do for you please don't hesitate to ask.

Why light blinks then goes off when switch is still in the on position


The thermostat in the iron controls the temperature of the iron. The red light indicates when the power applied to heat the iron which is set by the temperature dial on the iron. When it reaches the correct temperature the thermostat turn off the power and that is when the red light switches off.

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
