Hi,

If you've had this iron for a while it sounds like the cord may be frayed.
switch it off at the wall and unplug it, check the cord for wear, if the insulation is frayed, torn or broken and there are black burn marks on the cord where you saw sparks then the cord needs to be replaced.
DONT plug the iron back in until the cord is replaced.

Otherwise If there are no breaks or black burn marks on the cord, then your power point may be faulty and needs to be replaced!

I hope this was helpful

Love the euro pro but iron started to spark and cant seem to ooen it.


Ok, there is a short inside but the cord at the iron may be the problem. You need a CSA cord replacement if that is the case. Best idea is to scrap it in the blue box. If you are short of funds, try opening from the top and look at it as a learning experience. Oh with the plug not in the wall.

My straightener was plugged in i pulled it out before pressing the off button and the outlet sparked. when i plugged it back in it wouldn't work. How would i fix this ?


test the c.breaker reset from the wall if use c.breaker wall, or from the service panel c.breaker.
Some times the power cord has c.breaker to reset the button red too.

Cord has a short in it


You'll have to remedy or better replace the cord. Just buy similar to hardware store and put it to your iron. It's simple to replace and you have to have a analog tester to be able to test the cord without plug-in to AC wall voltage.
Thanks for asking.

I have a B&D 2030 steam iron which I really like, but recently it isn't always turning on when plugged in. I think there may be a short in the cord somewhere, possibly the plug?? It seems to work...


Likely the wire inside the cord is broken from lots of use. You can usually tell where by turning the iron on while plugged in and bending the cord. You will hear a spark when you bend the spot with the break. It isn't very difficult to replace the cord with a new one.

My iron will not heat when plugged into to the wall socket. Tried different places. Light comes on but won't heat. press to reset light stays on.


try opening the iron and see if the wires are connected to the thermostat/heating element, if not you can easily tie them again, it sometimes happens when the thermostat fails to open the circuit and the heating elements over heat and causes a break in the line or heating element.

Sunbeam 4267-000 not turning on just blinking red


"FF" or a blinking light will display meaning “Fault Found”. The “fault” is in the amount of power available to the blanket, mattress pad or throw.
There are several causes to this problem:
1. Bedding product is plugged into an extension cord, surge protector, power strip, or not plugged into a direct wall outlet.
2. Bedding product wasn't plugged in properly.

To FIX this problem, do the following to reset your bedding product:
1. Unplug the power cord from the electrical connection.
2. Unplug the cord from the actual bedding product itself.
3. Re-plug the cord into the bedding product. Make sure the connection is secure and complete.
4. Re-insert power cord back into a wall outlet.

If the 4 steps above are not followed in order, the bedding product will not properly reset.
