The component that will most likely turn off the iron will be a thermister- usually a round, coin-shaped device that opens up when the iron gets to a certain temperature. This is the part you should jumper if you want to disable this function.
If you can't locate it easily, we can only take an educated guess at the wiring, without the schematic diagram to identify them. We can assume red to be the hot wire, black to be the ground, and blue could be the output of the thermister. Without seeing it, I can't be sure.
If you're going to jumper any of the wires, you can try to jumper red to blue, or blue to black, but NOT red to black Any of these combinations coud result in the breaker tripping, so use caution and don't contact the device while powering it up.
Very few people work on irons, since they're generally considered to be "throwaway" items, but someone may be able to give you a more definitive answer.
Good luck, though, and hope this helps.

If you can take a sharp picture of the circuit board and send it [email protected] I might be able to help you.
P.S. Make sure all wires and circuit board are clear.

If you are having problems, you must first figure out if it is bad water causing the steam iron to leak the water .But if you have a leak internally then internal leaks are not repairable. They are often caused by a combination of poor water quality and not drying the iron properly before storage. Either of these can cause internal corrosion and lead to leakage.However it is suggested to contact the dealer or the customer support,as it is dangerous to handle electric equipment that is leakin water,which may cause fire hazards.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Usually the cord at the base breaks off, because of tension from too much moving and pulling!

If thats problem u could cut the appropriate length and screw again the end of the cord!

Sounds like your flex is damaged. You need to get it professionally changed.

You likely have a short in the power circuit or the insulation has failed, or both. It is not safe to continue using.
Sadly, an iron will nearly always cost a great deal more to repair than to replace, but if you are lucky enough to live near an old time small appliance repair shop it is worth investigating.
