This usually happens for one of a few reasons, Check, Thermal Fuse, Check Element, Check, on/off switch. Check power cable, for continuity.Check Thermostat, Thats all there is inside an iron, Power comes in the Phase, the Black, or Brown wire, then, through the on/off switch, through a Thermal fuse, through the thermostats contacts, to the element, and the other side of the element goes to the Neutral return. usually White or Blue.of course the Earth is Green or Green/Yellow, stripe.and is connected to the metal case..

Try putting in some LimeAway (Home Depot carries it) and let it sit overnight. Then turn it on to steam and press the steam button to get the steam through the bottom holes etc. Do this on top of some old rags. Then do it again with just water to clear out the LimeAway, should get most of the calcium out. One tip use distilled water in it instead of tap water, you'll get much less buildup. Get distilled water at any retailer about $1 per gallon.

  • While these irons are a great name (Kenmore) this one has a crack somewhere in the reservoir and this is not repairable as the reservoir does not detach from the iron itself. If you want to be able to have steam while ironing then you will need to get a new iron.

hello If you have an multimeter you can measure the continuity of the heating element of the iron.Set the multimeter to the resistance reading put the test probe black and red to the plug of the iron line 1 and line 2 switch the iron to its full temperature control the meter should read 0000 it means that the heating element is good if the meter reads 0.L it means that heating element is open and needs replacement...the common failure in an iron is the switch(temperature control switch) there is two screws at the back of the iron near the cord open it and check the switch clean the contacts there is also an adjustment in it use a flat screw to adjust the sensitivity of the switch.In some Iron it they use a thermal fuse for safety.here's the picture of thermal fuses..this thermal fuse.is connected in series at the AC power input of the iron locate for it and replace it.use replacement of the same rating...good luck and let me hear if you have further question.. alpug_60.jpg

Generally, it means that the bobbin is too tight in the cavity.

1. Remove the bobbin
2. Try a drop of oil in the bobbin cavity in the machine, using a Q-TIP
3. After applying the oil, use a clean Q-TIP to remove excess oil in the cavity (may need more than one clean Q-TIP).
4. Replace bobbin.

(I'm sure you already tried differenty thread)

Hope this helps!
