Mcdevito75 here, You may have a problem with the heating element in your iron, Check to see if you have a Warrantee if so, return the iron to Black & Decker. In the meantime look for an appliance repair shop in your area and have the iron checked out.

Most probably the cord has a bad contact within the iron. Iron consumes a lot of current, this may cause overheating problem if contact is not good enough (the area of contact is what is important).
Good luck!

Why does cord on steam iron always twist any help suggestions ? What is the little thing for on the cord ?


The cord twists constantly because it is the wrong type for the intended use.

The little thing on the iron end of the cord prevents twisting at the point where it enters the iron.

Electric Iron not Heating Up or not Working Right


If you go to use your Electric Iron and it does not work you may be wondering what could have gone wrong. Actually there are only a few things that can go wrong with this handy little appliance.

The first thing to check is to make sure that you actually have electric power getting to the steam iron. Many times the problem is simply caused by a tripped circuit breaker, a faulty outlet, a worn or broken plug on the end of the cord, or in some cases, a fuse that is in the plug. Another common problem is for the cord of the clothing iron to break at the point where it enters the handle of the iron. By checking that you have power actually getting to the internal parts of the electric iron, you eliminate one set of common problems.

Next you need to check that the power is getting to the heating element. For the power to get to the heating elements of the iron it needs to go through the power switch and the thermostat. On some irons the power switch will be included in the iron thermostat and on others the on/off switch will be a separate switch. In either case you will need to make sure that there is continuity, or the ability for the power to flow through the switch and thermostat to get to the heating part of the iron. The thermostat is just an on/off switch that works on the temperature of the base of the iron. So whenever the iron is cold the thermostat should be closed, allowing the power to flow through it.

If the power can get to the heating element of the iron, then it should get hot. If it is not, then the heating part has failed. Sometimes, when this happens it will short out and cause the fuse to blow or the circuit breaker to trip. Many times though, the element will just simply burn out or break so that the circuit is open and the electricity cannot flow through to make the element produce heat.

If your iron is getting too hot or not hot enough then the problem will almost always be in the thermostat. Sometimes it may be a simple thermostat calibration problem, but it also can be that the thermostat simply will not work properly anymore.

This should give you a basic troubleshooting guide for home electric irons and steam irons. As you can see, there are not many parts that can fail and troubleshooting the few parts that can fail, is relatively simple with a basic electric meter.

The iron will not stay hot and is very disappointing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat

I have a Tefal Pro Express Turbo iron (purchased in 2005). In the past 2 days the steam is constantly on - the button does not appear to be stuck. I can't get the steam to stop... unless I take out...


Yes, if your electric cord was extremely hot to touch is not common. It's posing danger to your unit and to your entire electrical system that may cause fire. Please let a qualified electrician inspect and repair your unit. The unit thermal fuse may not functioning that automatically switch off or cut the electric power of your unit when it gets too hot. Thank you for asking.

Sounds like either power isn't getting to the heating element, or the element is bad.

Good Luck

MY Rowenta Superpress 050 iron is not getting hot. Thank you.


The first thing to check is the electric socket outlet the iron is plugged in to.
Plug something in that you know is working o/k ,this will prove whether it is the socket or the iron.
If the socket is o/k then the next thing to check is the plug on the iron.
Undo the plug if it has a removeable cover, and check that the connections are good, and check the fuse if it has one, if you are not sure about the fuse, then change it for one that you know is o/k.
If it is a sealed plug then check the electric cord is not chafed or broken near the plug.

Check the cord at the point where it goes into the iron also.

If you are satisfied that all is o/k then the fault is in the iron.
I do recommend that you proceed no furher, unless you are fully competent with electrics, and know what you are doing.
If you are satisfied that it is faulty.It is usually cheaper to buy a new iron, rather than trying to repair it.
Hope my comments are of help to you.
Cheers.
Barkencoa.
