My Oreck cord-free steam iron JP8100C Series quit heating. I think it could be the Power Unit. Is it possible to replace that part of the iron?

SOURCE: Iron not heating up...

I had the same problem. There is a thermal cut-off switch mounted to the top-side of the base-plate. Unfortunately, you have to completely disassemble the iron to get to it. It is an easy replace, just make sure you take good notes on how it's all wired and put together. To disassemble the iron, I did this:

- Mount it in the cord base and move the switch to the "wireless" setting to remove the cord assembly from the iron.
- There are 2 small while nubs on the bottom of the blue plate in back. These are plugs. Pull them out to expose 2 screws.
- Remove these two screws plus the one in the center of the back blue plate.
- Pull the blue plate from the back of the iron and MARK all wires so you know where they go, then remove them.
- You will see 2 screws into the blue plastic base-plate at the back. Remove these.
- Open the door at the front of the iron where you pour the water in.
- Pry the spray nozzle at the bottom out (pry it forward). This will expose a third screw into the blue part of the base-pate. Remove this screw.
- Pull the white plastic and blue reservior away from the blue plastic base-plate. This will expose three screws into the metal bottom plate. Remove these three screws (on in front, 2 in back).
- Pull the blue plate away from the bottom metal plate. This will expose the thermal cut-off. There is a screw with a small metal clip holding it down. This is the part you will need to replace.

I bought my replacement part from a local electronics store. On mine, it was a 240 degree C cut-off. The part I used was from NTE. Part number is NTE8242. It cost me $1.40.

I suspect the reason this blew on my iron is because Oreck engineers didn't expect it to be plugged in all the time (my wife did not like the 'wireless' mode as it did not stay hot long enough so she uses it in 'corded' mode). If you use the iron on it's hottest setting in this mode, it appears that perhaps the plate gets hotter than 204C. That, or Oreck just got a lot of bad thermal cut-off parts and they are cutting off at a temperature lower than 240C.

Try an Oreck store or customer service.

If not I would suggest Ebay or something of the sort that would have odd and end parts

Looked at several solutions, I think your best bet is to copy and paste this link below into your browser. It is a manual for your oreck iron. There is a number for support for your product.

SOURCE: I have described my problem repeatedly. Again -

Ok whenever an iron stops heating it is either the Thermal Fuse,or the Element or the actual temperature control. One would have to use a meter to check the Voltage at the element of the iron. & Test the Thermal Fuse.
Also though with Cordless irons it may simply be that your batteries aren't working as they should. They can quickly be ruined if not charged correctly.
I do NOT think, that this is a job for a home repair due to the added complexity that the batteries add.
You need to take it to a professional repair center and ask for a "Quote" before allowing any repairs to proceed. As the cost of repair may exceed the cost of a new one.

follow this test and fix it. God bless you
As with many small appliances, regular maintenance makes a dramatic difference in how trouble free your electric iron will be. Even so, things can happen.
If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the power cord and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.
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 power cord Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

My Oreck Cordless iron stopped heating. The "Heating" light on the iron lights, but there is no heat.


Check and test this possible fault:
- Blown fuse
- Faulty or broken thermostat
- Broken power cords
- Broken heating elements

Hope helps.

My iron is filled with water but won't steam - why?


No heat ! It's probably an electrical problem. If the electrical cord is connected to the iron properly, then it's probably one of the swithes to the iron.
