It is betterr to get a sealed power plug with the nylon insulation for the iron with a 15 amps rating wire and plug.
open the unit and disconnect the wire of the damaged plug, remove and replace with the new one taking care to connect each of the wires to the correct position. The lead , neutral and the ground must be double checked before you switch on.

My panasonic NI22AWTXJ iron is not powering

Get a multimeter. Check that the fuse is OK. If it is ok, open the cover at the back of the iron. Plug in the iron. Be careful not to get electrocuted. Check that the cables from the socket on the wall have power. place the leads of the multimeter on the live and neutral and check for 240V or 110v depending on your country. If no power here cable could have a problem.
If there is power here, turn of power and unplug socket. open top cover, you will see the heating element. Check for continuity between the ends of the element, If no continuity the element is dead and you need to buy a new iron. If it has continuity then check continuity of other components connected in series with the element. Some models a limit thermostat to prevent the iron from over heating. This looks like a small resistor about one centimeter long, if it has no continuity, cut it off and bypass it. It is a safety device that fails when it senses high temperatures in case the main control thermostat fails. If you can find a replacement replace it, if you cant find a replacement, you can use it and hope the main thermostat does not fail.

How do I find out why my singer magic press 4 won't work? no light comes on, no heat

Assuming you have tried different power points in the house, it is likely the mains cable plug of the iron is faulty. Worst the cutoff fuse or control inside has tripped. Would suggest if mains cable or plug is ok then buy a new iron as these can be risky to repair without knowing what one is doing.

My iron will not turn on....what's wrong?

Welcome to Fixya. If the iron wont turn on it can be caused by a faulty cable, a busted Fuse, transistor, capacitor, switch problem or the main board of system. If you have warranty then you can have it checked an repair for free or if you have knowledge with electronics then you can open the iron and check hte part that is bad

Blinks and doesn't heat.

Could be a loose connection or a damaged cable. Try gently moving the cable and see if it starts to blink etc?

How old is it? Is it still in warranty Guarantee? If it is, take it back to where you bought it from and they should repair it or replace it.

Failing that you may have to buy a new one. Wallmart or similar have cheap electrical appliances

Red light keeps blinking and iron shuts off

Sounds as if the cable may be damaged or a loose connection. May be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.
