IF you take off about a inch of wire from the plug and re-wire it [somtimes with new plug also] make sure to remember the fuse and this should do the trick.

I need to repair a damaged fabric cover on my euro pro steam iron. the fabric cord cover is frayed and the rubber steam cord gets extremely hot where the fabric is frayed.


You will need to obtain a completely new power cord kit from the manufacturer. If you are not familiar with doing electrical repairs, you may want to have a technician do it. Insulation on the power cord is important for several reasons; especially a method to keep you safe from a fire, electrical burn, shock, etc.

How to get Braun curling iron to heat?


Delilah, if it is a new curling iron and you plug it into a known good working outlet and does not heat up, it is defective. Return it to store for replacement or refund. If it is older and out of warranty, it is probably burnt out limit switch or may need rewired with new plug and cord(probably not cost effective, unless you can test and change)
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Electric cord is working sometimes


You have a short in electric cord. If you choose to replace cord be sure to replace the entire cord. Do not attempt to repair a damaged cord as this may present a fire hazard.

How can i fix the cord from my conair


Small Appliance Repair shop may be able to help, but probably best and more economical to just replace. If money is a factor to replace, check local thrift stores for a used one.

My Conair Proshine Straightner won't warm up, although the light is on. How do I fix this? ... hot plates not heating and the light says its warming up but the hot plates won't heat up


Most heated hair appliances are protected by a thermistor that will fail if overheated. These are small, about 1/2" long, cylindrical in shape with a pointy end and a wire coming from each end. When they go bad, they do not conduct electricity (zero ohms on a meter). There is a three digit number on the side that is the shutoff temperature. You can get these at Radio Shack.

Don't bypass this safety device.

Dryer cord is burned up where it connects to the dryer can i still repair it


Hi shooby, Yes you can repair it,just open it the dryer then trace the line of burnt wire,then you find there a fuse. Check that fuse if not open,if open replace it with a new one with same amperage and voltage. Then you can put the new replacement wire there in the terminal connection.

I've a ghd hair straighner and only heats up sometimes, what could be the problem? thanks


The power cord may be bad. When it does work, if the plug end or the wire at the straightener end gets hot, the cord needs replacing.

My conair straightener won't heat up


that same thing is happening to me! but iv had mine for almost 2 years...exact same hair straightener, its happening to many people! i dont know if this is the problem but alot of people wrap their cords around their straighteners (i did too) and it twists the cord that conects to the hair straightener and makes it loose. i still have not found a way to solve this problem.

i would just go out and buy a new one, and if your looking for good but inexpensive i suggest vidal sassoon. they get really hot and have many settings and many different types. mine has worked greats

just remember not to wrap the cord

Power chord frayed and I need a new one for a conair hair iron CS36. The chord pivots in the handle 360 degrees.


go to (www.fixit.com/small apliance)
what I found out with my hair dryer (conair infinity model) was that there was a short at the plug and when I bent the wire a little to left or right the dryer would work. The plug is GFI protected that means there is a test and reset switch built in to the plug. There for for me to fix my hair dryer I would have to replace purchase order the whole cord. The cord assembly cost almost half the price it would cost to replace the dryer with a new dryer. I purchased a new dryer.
