SOURCE: Just bought it online and

Sorry Jason but they are not machine pressed. Remove the round "Chi" Logo covers at the hinge , underneath you will see 2 large phillip type screw heads.Take 2 large phillips screwdrivers, grip firmly and twist (lefty loosey) and with a bit of effort you will loosen them. NOTE: Put a rubberband or something at the open end BEFORE this to prevent the spring for doing what springs do when you remove the pin at the hinge. The pin is male/female type with one long side with a machined exterior and internal threads and a shorter bolt or screw side with traditional external circumferential threads. Once this is out and you take off your rubber band safety you can carefully remove the hinge spring. Note that one side of the spring is longer and that side goes on the longer half of the iron which should be the half with the switch. All the main business is on the swith half, so remove the four screws on cover plate (2) at top just below ceramic and (2) just above the hinge area. You may have to pry this apart but it shoud remove hinge end first then top. Remember to install it in reverse as it was removed. You will see a circuit board and (4) wires at the top. The inner 2 are for the heating element and the outer 2 for the thermal fuse. Get a multimeter and put it on the Continuity Check mode or Ohm mode. Touch one lead to one outer wire and one lead to the other outer wire. If the meter reads 0, the thermal fuse is open or burned up and it needs replaced before it will heat again. I posted my repair and replacement of a thermal fuse today on here. I did it for about 10 bucks! Hope this helps.

Try resetting it. Sometimes that can fix the problem. Make sure it's not a damaged cord. If it is, let me know and I can help you out with it. If it's not that, depending on how long you've had it, you can probably return it for another one.

Units such as these are heated by "heating element". The elements can only stand so much abuse (electricty) and go bad. If you can find someone who deals in electronics, and is willing to replace it - however, you may end up spending more doing that than if you just replace the entire unit. Research some repair shops (try tv, vcr, dvd repair services) as they may be able to do this, or refer you to someone who does. Thank you for choosing

When the flat iron does not heat up, it is usually the ceramic fuse that is located under one of the heating elements. I fixed my daughter;s CHI flat iron for $1.97 with a ceramic fuse I bought at Radio Shack.

Chi Flatiron Repair Fix it Yourself User Photos

Most appliances come with manuals that give you company contact information. My guess is the iron is out of warranty. As irons have high voltage components, do it yourself is not advised. Staying alive is better than fixing an iron. That said, the above link even tells you how to take it apart. I have a hunch that good parts would have to come from another broken Chi iron. And where would you get that! Maybe someone on the above link can be contacted. Alas, you simply wanted a reliable business that might check this out. I doubt you want to pay a technician for his time in taking this apart. I wish you well.
