    I turn it on, the light comes on but its not heating

  • Anonymous Oct 29, 2008

    I had a slightly different Conair Hair Straightner before, one day I went to turn it on, the light flashed saying it was heating up as usual but it kept flashing and the straightner never heated. So I bought a new, different, Conair straightner.

    It did the same thing.

It sounds to me like the thermal cutoff switch has blown. Straighteners have these as a safety device similar to a fuse to protect against fire in the event it gets too hot. These are not very costly to replace. Here is a link to where you can buy them and what they look like:

http://www.welco.com.cn/?gclid=CJiWv7TN2ZQCFQpzHgodl1LXQQ

Make sure you get one of the exact same cutoff point as the one designed for yours. If you put in a higher temp device it will be harder to blow but will make it dangerous as it may cause a fire if it over heats. Some shady repair men will just bypass this and it will work again fine but this is a dangerous practice as it directly puts you of danger. If you do have it repaired at a shop demand for the old thermal cutoff from your unit when you drop it off so the tech will know you know what is wrong with it and that you will check to make sure that it has really been changed. This will also not give him the chance to over charge you when he knows you know it is only a 1 dollar part and easy to change.
This device is very easy to change, If you can open your unit you could easily do this yourself. The part, as you will see on the site where you buy them, only has 2 wires one coming out of each end. You simply cut out the old 1 and replace it with the new one. You do not even have to worry which end goes where. It is like a fuse, it works the same either direction. You have to buy some wire crimp connector to connect it, you can not just solder it in due to the heat in the iron. In a pinch you could just securely twist the ends of the leads with the leads from the old cutoff if you clip the leads from the old cutoff real close to the device. This will leave you with plenty of wire to get a good twist. I always use the crimp connectors so it looks more professional.
Anyway, I hope you found this to be helpful and if you need more help feel free to ask me. I will stay with you on this until we have it fixed.

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.

I just got my Infinity by conair model cs32 straightener and it will not turn on or heat up. Please help.


If you just purchased it today or up to 30 days after purchase, TAKE IT BACK!!. If you start having problems from the beginning you will possibly always have them.

My conair infinityhair straightener just stopped heating up.it turns on but it dosent heat up.


This is a job for one with a multimeter and soldering iron. Remove the temperature knob and the plate below that. It will expose the inside of the top half of the Straightener. You will see two set of red and black wires soldered to a green circuit board. See if the soldering are intact and no wire has come loose . Now unsolder the red wires ( please note which wire goes where ). With the multimeter in the Ohms range ( X100 ) touch the probes on the red and black wires each and check for continuity. The red and black wires are two ends of the ceramic heaters. If they have failed , replace .

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

My hair straightener stops working when i increase the level of intensity to dry hair, what can be the problem?


Sounds like a short in the unit. It can be taken apart and make certain all of the wires are tight. Not sure what what you mean by increase intensity but if it means you oull harder it may just be too much for the unit. Try not putting so much pressure on it. Good luck.
