Question about Black & Decker Classic Metal APP F63D Iron
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.

No electricity is getting to the heating coil inside the iron. It has to be disassembled to find out if the heating coils are broken, or just not connected properly.

SOURCE: Why isn't my Iron heating up?
I do believe the thermostat is defective.All the iron have a small thermastat top control the temperature and is working like a switch.If the switch don`t work get stuck on the same position.Unfortunatly sometimes is better get a new one themn fix an old one but this is The Market and nothing i can do personally.Also make sure the thermostat knob is working properly.If you hear a click when you turn is ok.
