Electric Iron not Heating Up or not Working Right


If you go to use your Electric Iron and it does not work you may be wondering what could have gone wrong. Actually there are only a few things that can go wrong with this handy little appliance.

The first thing to check is to make sure that you actually have electric power getting to the steam iron. Many times the problem is simply caused by a tripped circuit breaker, a faulty outlet, a worn or broken plug on the end of the cord, or in some cases, a fuse that is in the plug. Another common problem is for the cord of the clothing iron to break at the point where it enters the handle of the iron. By checking that you have power actually getting to the internal parts of the electric iron, you eliminate one set of common problems.

Next you need to check that the power is getting to the heating element. For the power to get to the heating elements of the iron it needs to go through the power switch and the thermostat. On some irons the power switch will be included in the iron thermostat and on others the on/off switch will be a separate switch. In either case you will need to make sure that there is continuity, or the ability for the power to flow through the switch and thermostat to get to the heating part of the iron. The thermostat is just an on/off switch that works on the temperature of the base of the iron. So whenever the iron is cold the thermostat should be closed, allowing the power to flow through it.

If the power can get to the heating element of the iron, then it should get hot. If it is not, then the heating part has failed. Sometimes, when this happens it will short out and cause the fuse to blow or the circuit breaker to trip. Many times though, the element will just simply burn out or break so that the circuit is open and the electricity cannot flow through to make the element produce heat.

If your iron is getting too hot or not hot enough then the problem will almost always be in the thermostat. Sometimes it may be a simple thermostat calibration problem, but it also can be that the thermostat simply will not work properly anymore.

This should give you a basic troubleshooting guide for home electric irons and steam irons. As you can see, there are not many parts that can fail and troubleshooting the few parts that can fail, is relatively simple with a basic electric meter.

When I switch on the electric cuts out


There is a problem in the iron. It needs to be fixed.
There are two possibilities: short circuit or leakage. It needs to be fixed in both cases.

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 Bosch b52l iron, when i turn on the steam button, it cuts off the power, what could it be


It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.

Option 1)
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.

Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).

Try the solutions in that order.

Is no workig i needcramic heat control


1. you need a multi tester.
2. check the power supply of your outlet, or check the fuse or circuit breaker.
if has power go to 3.
3.open the back of your electric iron, the end of the cord or plug. then try to check the continuity of two wires if any is open. if its open or no continuity replace the cord or plug, either cut the only open wires and reconnect it again.
4. Or check the heating element of your electric iron if no resistance replace the heating element or you buy a new one.

Our philips iron keeps tripping our fuse box - this is the second model (but different model) that has done it - is there any advice you have as to why this keeps happening?


Your circuit is bring overloaded by the iron.Irons use lots of energy They usually use more than half the capacity of most electric circuits.Try it on another circuit or unplug some other heavy energy user on the circuit.Better yet have an electrician have a look on the circuit.

Sunbeam Electric Blanket Model 972 A5 Type 692 (or 592) with temperature control 1 to 9 with 75 mins and 12 hrs and off control positions. The light blinks red and the blanket won't heat up. Please...


Did you get helped last year? If so please ignore. Otherwise....

Hi. You can locate a Sunbeam Service Centre via http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Support/Repairers.aspx

You're looking at $69,95 recommended retail.

BTW have you checked that it's not the blanket? Swap the controls over, if the problem follows the control it's the control. If the problem stays on the same side of the blanket, it's the blanket.

Also note Sunbeam has a 3 year warranty on electric blankets. If Date Of Purchase is less than 3 years ago call 1800025059 option 1 to speak to their Customer Service,
