Switch light goes on when pressed but goes off if... OR iron does not heat at all even pressing the button to turn it on continually.
Don't understand which one question you are asking
But if there is no heat at all after switching it on, it needs to go to iron heaven but be sure to cut the plug of the end, Saftey reasons at the dump. BUT if lights are coming on the iron is working. the large dial on the water filler is temperature control. Turn this around to cotton or linen.
The light will come on and off while in use, it allows you to know that the iron has cooled and is going back to your select temperature( on the large dial)

Make sure that you use water in the iron as it will aid your ironing and make it quicker. Make sure that the iron temperature dial on the water filler is at the correct temperature for the item that you are ironing.
Hope this helps

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure 1) power is on to the outlet, 2) check the electrical cord and 3) check the thermostat and replace if necessary. Use the VOM.

The iron heats up, but when the steam generator button is pressed no steam gets through at all.


Chemicals and minerals in the water have probably clogged the vents. Empty the water. Pour 1/2 cup WHITE vinegar into the reservoir. Turn on your iron and let it heat. Then press the steam generator button several times until the vinegar is gone. Unplug the iron. As it is cooling, take acotton swab and gently wipe the surface of the vents. You can probe GENTLY with the swab, but don't push it into the vent or the cotton head may get stuck.
As you're pressing the steam button, keep the iron in the ironing position, not standing. If the vinegar just will not come out of the vents, use a wooden toothpick to loosen the build up.
This always works well for me and I hope it does for you.
If so, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

I have a Light N Easy iron that I got with points at a Save-On grocery store in September 2010. Today the iron failed to heat when I turned it on.


Check the plug and wire connected inside the iron wiring terminal. You need a multi-tester to do the continuity test of the wire. An open wire indicate a no connection, hence the iron will failed to heat.
So if you can do it, do it. But if you can't ask someone who has knowledge in appliance repair and has continuity tester.
Good luck.

When I plug in my iron the light comes on but when I go to push the button to turn it on it does nothing, not even heat up. The iron is only 3 months old


Good Day!

Please open the cover of your iron and look for the thermal fuse inside.That is the only problem of your iron replaced it on the same ampere and temperature.

Thank you and don't forget to rate my answer.

My singer magic press 4 iron comes on but the plate will not heat up. I turn it on one day and it just would not heat up.


Not sure how tech savvy you are, but the service manual can be downloaded at http://www.parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/Presses/MP4.pdf
UNPLUG THE IRON. Figure 7 shows the wiring. Note that the lamp inside the switch is shown incorrectly. It should be on the other side of the switch. Also the 2 wires running down to the fuse are the red wires. The red wires are interchangeable. Use a continuity tester between wire 2 and wire 3 to test the thermostat. Should be open when dial is turned to the left. Closed when dial turned to the right. Also check continuity on the heaters. If everything looks good but it still doesn't work, replace the circuit board.

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.

Most likely it is the fuse that regulates the heating element on your press that has burned out.
All you have to do is open the top, remove the heating plate. The fuse will be on the left, button shaped.
Replace the fuse and put everything back together and the unit should work.
You can buy a fuse from the company you bought your press at or contact the manufacturer.
