I HAVE AN OLD BLACK AND DECKER 300 QUICK AND EASY IRON. DOES IT CONTAIN MERCURY?


I just looked up the manual. Unfortunately the best way to find out is to contact B&D.

This is from a recycling website.
Purpose of the Mercury: The reason that mercury tilt switches were widely used in irons and other appliances was because of the conductive and liquid-like properties of mercury. In a mercury tilt switch, as the switch is "tilted" the mercury flows with the switch to complete the circuit by conducting electricity and turning the appliance on or off. In irons the mercury switch controls an electronic shut-off timer, constantly resetting the timer when the iron is in motion. If a person leaves the iron turned on and motionless, the automatic shut-off timer turns the iron off after a certain amount of time, reducing the risk of a fire. If an iron falls, this feature will also prevent it from continuing to release heat potentially causing a burn or fire.
Potential Hazards: As long as the iron remains intact, there is a low probability that there would be a mercury release.
Recycling/Disposal: There is no easy way to identify whether or not an iron contains a mercury tilt switch. However, if the iron is more than 10 years old and it contains an automatic shut-off, consumers should assume that it contains a mercury switch and dispose of it properly.

Unfortunately, they keep referring to 10 years old, but it doesn't say when this information was written up. If it was written in say 2006, then it would be referring to 20 year old irons.

Burning smell


thermal switch is not working...upon reaching a certain temperature limit it should switch off then switch on again after a moment to maintain the set temperature..what happened here is that your thermal switch didn't switch off so the temperature continue to rise to the extent that the heating element burnt and smell like that..adjust the setting in such a way that it switches off after reaching the desired temperature..

On and off petal switch not working


When I took mine apart I noticed the switch had melted near the contacts. This makes me not want to fix it, but instead, look for a better model. Hope this helps.

Euro-Pro Steam Generator EP8015 - Rocker switch


The screws holding the unit together are T-20 TORX screws; the center post makes them anti-tamper TORX screws. These screws are used in applications in which the manufacturer does not want the average consumer to attempt repairs. Please don't take this wrong, but if you have to ask about the "unusual 6-sided screw", then you shouldn't be opening the unit.

Unfortunately, when the heating element rocker switch gives out (3-4 years), it is usually about time to overhaul the entire iron (both the tank portion as well as the iron portion). Other things that can cause problems are the thermostat and the pressure actuator.

Contact A2A Consulting at 1-888-830-3563; they can probably fix the unit for you.

B&D steam xpress 660 faulty switch to replace


I'm not familiar with your particular model , or Irons themselves.
So forgive me if im wrong ,
I think it could be a safety feature , to prevent accidents, so replacing the switch will most likely make no difference.

But if you still find yourself needing to Iron sideways , possibly whilst extreme bungee-jumping or entering the earth's outer atmosphere !! LoL sorry couldn't help myself there , you could try phyically bypassing the switch itself.

There would be two main ways to approach such a task, depending on the cut-out system utilized by the iron.

[u]Electrical diversion[/u]

Usually safety cut-out switches will interrupt the power of one polarity only, either positive or negative. especially where water is involved. This is easily bypassed by simply joining the matching 2 wires together either side of the switch to complete the circuit making the safety switch obsolete. There may be other wires for indicator lights ect which are better left alone for now.

[u]Mechanical diversion[/u]

The iron may utilize the water or other moving component to interrupt the power supply .Such as a water level indicator in a kettle, which is positioned to activate only when in sideways position. Again you could bypass the wires as above or bind the mechanism to prevent the movement being possible.

If it does use the water method , running the iron with no or low water in it may work...But there's probably a safety feature for that too....LoL

Anyways hope it helps you out a little
