Hello,

First thing you have to do is to check the power cable if it is okay, the power cable normally have fuse which you have to check, if otherwise you have to open the Iron to check for the faulty part, The Iron consists of three parts namely the element, the thermostat and the fuse, so check the one after the other with the use of a multimeter to which is bad or not in which it will be replaced...

Hope this will helpout in solving the problem....

How do I fix my iron because it is not turning on


1. If there is sign of power (e.g. light is on), the heating element may be broken.
2. If there is no sign of power, check the power point (socket), iron power plug, cable and the power on switch. If everything is fine, you need to get it repaired.

Iron doesnot get hot onlyplatform


Try to open the electric iron and locate the thermostat . Secure the electric iron against any metal object that may cause electric shock or short circuit and plug it to a power source. Slowly adjust the temperature and using an electric tester check the power before the thermostat and after the thermostat. If there is a power before the thermostat and has no power after the thermostat then your problem is the thermostat replace it with a new one.

I HAVE A BLACK AND DECKER IRON-DIGITAL ADVANTAGE, POWER IN THE IRON GOES ON AND OFF NEED TO KEEP ON HOLDING THE POWER WIRE INTO THE IRON, SO I TRIED TO OPEN THE WIRE SECTION,BUT IT NEED A SPECIAL TOOL TO...


Bring the iron to a Hardware store, ask for a set of tools right for the type of screws (maybe Torx, Security Torx, tri-wing, bristol and others).

Once you can open the iron and access to the cord you may change the power cord. it is easy.

Power goes on & off because the power cord is broken. This failure is very common on irons.

Good luck

If using with a power strip or extension cord, how many amps does the iron pull -- it is 1700 watt the kind I have


Power = Current x Emf
Current = Power / Emf

Current - Amps
Emf - Volts
Power - Watts

Current = 1700 watts / 120 Volts = 14 Amps

If you live in Europe then -

Current = 1700 watts / 240 Volts = 7 Amps

Be sure your breaker and extension cord are rated for the amperage.

The iron seems like it is on but no steams come out I will mess with the wire and then too much steams comes out and I have water stains


Power Cord is bad and power cuts on and off not allowing the proper heat. When power cuts off you lose heat and the iron fills up with water and not steam then when power returns you have to much steam.
