20 Most Recent Black & Decker Steam Xpress AS250 Iron with Auto Shut-off Questions & Answers

As a suggestion, I would put some white vinegar 1 part to 5 parts water through the iron to clean away the mineral deposits. Let it soak cold for an hour or so. If it has just stopped steaming action  from the steamer button, heat the iron up and put plenty of action through the button also. It will have mineral deposits there also. As for any instructions on service, there will be none in print. I suggest running around the edges of the plastic cover parts with a guitar pic(if you have one) or something of a flexible springy nature. The clips at the edges can generally be released in the manner. Good luck

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;

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

You need to check the following for circuit contintinuity:-
The plug and wall socket
The leads, both the live and the neutral
The temperature selector (Thermostat)
The thermal fuses
The element

To do this testing you will have to strip the iron and get to the wire ends, the thermal fuses and the element terminals. (My guess is that it is the thermal fuses. They are little metal tubes wires attached and are usually insulated in white fibre glass tubing and attached to the element plate).
