Question about Black & Decker Classic Metal APP F63D Iron
My Black and Decker Classic Metal iron is about two and half years old. The cord has become badly twisted due to wear, so the connection isn't being made, and the iron won't heat up. Otherwise the iron is in fine shape, and since it was fairly expensive, I'd like to repair it. I think all it needs is a new cord. Is this a possibility, and will it be very expensive to replace?
Just open your flat iron and locate the face plate contactor that has a soot burn causing the filament not to heat,use a sand paper to clean the contact from soot burnt,this the common problem of a flat iron...
Hope this may help;

It probably has a high temp overload opened up inside or the thermostat control has gone bad.You can only tell for sure by taking the unit apart and testing the circuit for continuity.The steam feature on the iron is heated by the same element that heats the iron so it wont work.the element itself could also be bad,but I have never seen one go bad.You will have to check each component seperately to find the damaged part.or you can test the whole circuit at the plugs end,and use a jumper across each part until you have continuity through the unit.Make sure the thermostat is turned all the way up.the part that you are bypassing when you get continuity is the bad part.
You can buy a cheap continuity checker at any lowes,or even wallmart for that matter.
