Depends on where the sparks came from. If it was from the cord then yes, fix the cord. If it came from inside the iron then, maybe. You would have to open iron and see what caused it. If you are and electrician or technician then you could measure resistance and find problem.

MY IRON POWER SON BUT DOES NOT HEAT UP THE LIGHTS JUST BLINK. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS IRON?


The thermostat is broken, the heating coil is short-circuited, or a fuse or other type of circuit breaker has otherwise opened.

If you are mechanically and electronically adept, then by all means try to identify the mechanical fault and fix it.

Otherwise, just replace it. Replacement parts for such a small appliance are not easy to find.

Iron not working no power nolights


check the circuit breaker in the main fuse box in case a breaker has tripped.
check the fuse in the power plug, if it is no good replace it.
Try the iron in another socket /outlet in case the one you are using is faulty.

I have a Bosch b52l iron, when i turn on the steam button, it cuts off the power, what could it be


It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.

Option 1)
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.

Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).

Try the solutions in that order.

Trips circuit breaker after 10 minutes of use


This iron is 1500 watts. On a 120 volt breaker, that's about 12.5 amps. Check to see what else is on this breaker. A 1500 watt space heater or a washing machine combined with this iron will pop a 15 or 20 amp breaker.

Steam iron trips the main fuse


It could be your iron drawing too much current but it sounds more likely that you have a weak circuit breaker on that circuit. You might try the iron on a different house circuit to confirm if its actually the iron or the house breaker giving you problems.
