Question about Sunbeam Safety Glide 3891 Iron

1 Answer

I ironed about 2 hours last night before bed. Tried to iron some more (about 16 hours later) and it won't power up. No warning at all. What could be the problem? I didn't drop it.

Is my steam iron broke?


Get a new one. If it drew enough power to trip off your electricity then there is a problem that is not worth taking a chance on.

My iron's MODEL: 14977Z The iron's red light is on but won't heat to iron. was working a couple of hours ago


This is typical of a iron, it is cheaper to replace than to repair. The heating element is broken.

Boiler on the iron was empty,used by someone that didn't know this type iron.Turned iron on and later heard this awful noise and husband tried to release pressure and cap blew off but no water was in...


I do not use this model, but it would appear the iron is not affected, just the boiler - like setting an empty tea pot on a hot burner.

Is there any warning that the tank is empty before turning the iron on?

I would refer to the manual for cleaning before using the iron and would not loan anything more valuable than a cup of sugar to anyone.

Iron stopped working suddenly


perhaps the thermostat is sticking.as irons are cheap to replace i would try cleaning /soaking the tank to remove lime scale. or strip the iron down checking thermostat and conections.

Sunbeam 4267-000 not turning on just blinking red


"FF" or a blinking light will display meaning “Fault Found”. The “fault” is in the amount of power available to the blanket, mattress pad or throw.
There are several causes to this problem:
1. Bedding product is plugged into an extension cord, surge protector, power strip, or not plugged into a direct wall outlet.
2. Bedding product wasn't plugged in properly.

To FIX this problem, do the following to reset your bedding product:
1. Unplug the power cord from the electrical connection.
2. Unplug the cord from the actual bedding product itself.
3. Re-plug the cord into the bedding product. Make sure the connection is secure and complete.
4. Re-insert power cord back into a wall outlet.

If the 4 steps above are not followed in order, the bedding product will not properly reset.

CALCIUM BUILDUP COMING OUT OF THE STEAM HOLES...


Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.

Light comes on, but iron will not heat up


Like what was posted before, the cause of the iron lights is on but the heaters are not hot is because either your heater connection is melted or rusted due to water seepage(steam irons). The lights power supply are tapped parallel to the heater supply thus lights is on. Solution is to dismantle the iron to replace the connectors or cables. Though not all iron is easy to dismantle
