Problems with shutting off too fast

Aug 16, 2010

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:OK: it irons stuff nicely.

Cons:Auto-shut-off makes it a pain to use.

The Bottom Line: If you only iron once in a while, this iron is ok. But for continuous use, skip it.


The manual says that “When the iron is idle for 10 minutes…..[it] will turn off.” I can tell that there is a motion sensor in the iron that regulates this feature. However, it does not work as advertised. It will often turn off within seconds or a minute or two of when I use it. Indeed, there have been times when it has turned off as I am ironing the fabric!  So a) the sensor is not “sensitive” enough to normal ironing motions and/or b) it is defective.  This results in me having to constantly pick up the iron and shake it to make sure it stays hot. Also: the “Self-Cleaning System”.  I do not and have never used water in the iron. Yet, as the manual indicates, from time to time, “A “CLEAN” indicator will appear in the digital display to notify you when the iron needs cleaning.” This feature obviously also works on an internal clock (as opposed to actually sensing when the iron is dirty), so the advertising on the box and in the manual is misleading. To make things even worse, the “CLEAN” light goes off after a while whether I do any cleaning (per the manual) or not. Voila! It has magically cleaned itself!
