    Hi, it means there is a broken circuit towards the heating element, these could be due to failure at the control knob to complete the circuit , secondly the thermoresistor fuse inbuilt could have failed or thirdly the heating element could have burnt. If you have an analogue or digital multi-meter you could open the iron and measure the circuit continuity to detect the exact failure for repair.

SOURCE: My iron doesn't steam up anymore

Time for a new iron. I last one went to the iron graveyard and I then spent $150.00 on the top of the range Phillips with the gold plate. Has cut my ironing down to a 1/4 of the time. Well worth it

I have a power strip that keeps tripping its safety switch even though only one electric oven is plugged into it. What do I need to do?


did you try to plug directly in to a plug ?
maby your strip is defective or has a 10 amp overload protector this will trip with heating devices of your nature.

The black and decker iron wont heat up


It probably has a high temp overload opened up inside or the thermostat control has gone bad.You can only tell for sure by taking the unit apart and testing the circuit for continuity.The steam feature on the iron is heated by the same element that heats the iron so it wont work.the element itself could also be bad,but I have never seen one go bad.You will have to check each component seperately to find the damaged part.or you can test the whole circuit at the plugs end,and use a jumper across each part until you have continuity through the unit.Make sure the thermostat is turned all the way up.the part that you are bypassing when you get continuity is the bad part.
You can buy a cheap continuity checker at any lowes,or even wallmart for that matter.

NI-A57SR steam Iron suddenly not functioning


I had the same problem, when I took it apart, I noticed the theromstat points needed sanding. Just a reminder, make sure to write down the order of wire leads before disconnecting. By the way to test if the heating element is working connect white lead to the second connection from the left and black lead to the far right. Place your iron flat down on a wet cloth ( so that you won't burn your surface). You can also use an electrical tester. If heating element does not work though, it is time to buy a new iron.

Rowenta DZ9080 Iron with Auto... Problem


Hello, All High grade silicones are inherently heat resistant. Look for the best silicone you can find in a tube. The higher the cost of the silicone the higher the quality. You might even try automotive gasket sealer if you want to be absolutely sure of heat resistance. This will be off an orange or blue color though.
If You need mare help feel free to contact me.
