Iron won't heat up . took an ohm meeter and ohmed out the outer two prongs on iron and got no reading. So I think the heating element in iron is bad. If so how do I get another one?

Iron won't come on or heat

The problem could be the power cord or the element.
Try replacing the power cord first and see what happens.

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.

Iron will not heat up when plugged into outlet

My wife has used these since they were made by Sunbeam. The majority of the times they failed it was the cord broken inside the black insulation right behind the plug. If you can get access to a continuity tester or an ohm meter (part of all multimeters) just set the meter on ohms or continuity, connect the red lead to one prong on the plug and the black lead to the other prong. If the meter doesn't read any resistance, hold the plug still and move the wire around behind it. If that results in intermittent continuity readings there is where the break is. If there is a reading on the first try, move the temperature selector to the OFF position and the reading should disappear. As you move across the range of temperatures, the resistance reading should climb. If it does not, the thermostat is bad.

Iron has stopped heating

Check the power connection, the power cord to the heating coil. If there is no suppy then check the bimetal contact of the temperature setting switch, if voltage comes to coil without heating, the coil can be open .
You will have to use a multimeter in Ohms range to check the continuity of the coil.
Have to decide is coil is open about the cost of coil to that of a new iron.

Not heating up

The connection to your iron is perfectly alright and also to the cut offf circuit but unfortunately there is either a failure of the heating coild of the iron or a link failure to the iron heating element. The last option to check will be take a continuity test with a multimeter, you must get a low range below100- 250 ohms reading. If not you will have to open and test the coil for continuity failing which the coild is open. Replacing the coil to the cost of a new irron must be checked out. Hope you work this out. Good day

Euro Pro Irons: Less than a year old stop heating up.


some time no part of our property go bad but what will need is to service them from there dysfunction

the problem of your iron could be from the element and the wire ,the element is the heat provider while the wire is the power supply from the electric

But the fact is that ,the problem of your iron is disconnection of element from the wire what you need to do fix it to unscrew your iron and trace the wire down to the element and see the disconnection am toking about and fix it back

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

The iron does not heat up


Either wiring is broken or the heating element is broken.

The heating element is tested taking apart the iron, disconnecting element contact, and reading impedance on element contact with a multimeter set at Rx1. If the element has no continuity (circuit open), then the element must be replaced.

Iron has light on so power is there however iron


You will need to dismantle your iron. Follow the instructions below to locate the fault:

a. Make sure the power cord is not damaged.

b. Then, check the temperature selector. If it is in the correct position, something else is wrong.

c. Check the thermostat. As you disassemble the iron, clean the lint from the thermostat. Then test it with your ohmmeter. Set your ohmmeter on RX1 and clip the probes onto the terminal. Take a piece of wood or plastic and move the contacts open, then closed. When it closes you should see the ohmmeter just from high to zero. It so, it is working well.

d. Test the heating element. Do this by removing the base of the iron. There you should see the probes. Take you ohmmeter, set on RX1, and touch the probes. If it reads between 10 to 25 ohms, it is working correctly.

e. If you have an electronic iron, the only other possibility is the circuit board. If you have exhausted your options, take the iron to a professional.

Thank you.

Rowenta DX-8800 will not heat. Location of heating element?

The heating element is incorporated in the base. Rarely is the heating element bad. Its usually a connection or control problem. You cannot just replace the heating element.
