Why A Lot Of Flat Irons Stop Working
I keep reading reviews about how particular irons stop working after a prescribed amount of time. This is such an disappointing thing, as I know many are dependent on their iron as I am, and this exact situation has happened to me. At first, I, as many others, blamed the iron. I had my father, an electrical engineer, look at to see if he could fix it. He told me he couldnt and that the damage done was my fault! He said wrapping the cord around the appliance (as when youre putting it away) causes two things happen in these irons: 1. The act of wrapping breaks the delicate electrical connections that supply power to the iron. These cant be replaced. 2. Even though the cord is insulated from heat, it cant take being wrapped around something thats 200 degrees for a minute or two until it cools down. So though a few of these irons that "stop working" might be faulty, many will be damaged by what we do to them innocently putting them under the counter or, like when I did it, packing them for business trips and vacations. I now bundle my cord loosely when putting it away or packing it. Another good idea is to put a small nail inside your bathroom cabinet where the appliance can hang. Many hair stylists do this, and its one reason why even after repeated uses, their irons work for a very long time. I hope this was helpful!
