简介

Here we have a used Steam Generator Iron been in use for several years with no problems at all. Like any electrical product that moves a lot the mains cable suffers constant to and fro movement, in this case, during ironing. This action work hardens the multi core individual wires in the cable. You will notice the mains plug and the steam generator mainly sits still in use, only the heated iron moves during use causing the fractures in the leads and failure.

PLEASE NOTE

The iron sole plate must be Grounded at all times by the Earth Conductor wire running through the cable from the three pin wall plug to the iron sole plate. Test regularly. Very prone to fail and possible shock hazard.

  1. Check ALL your irons electrical earth protection to the Earth pin on the mains plug.

  6. Carefully grip each wire to see if it has already been broken with a tug, in my case several wires had failed, and stretched when pulled. Note the strain relief mark on the mains cable as you need this distance when reassembled (so as not to be too short or too long.

  7. Cut back 180mm  (seven inches) of the outer cotton covering, along with the factory fitted heat shrink, to find new undamaged fresh wires.   As you cut back you will need to reapply new heat shrink tube to make a smart job. (Black insulation tape if available)
