What fuse do I need for ghd straighteners?

All models of GHD can have a 3 amp fuse fitted. Fuse failure is uncommon on all models. Under no circumstances should a 13 amp fuse be fitted.

Where is the fuse in ghd straighteners?

The thermal fuse is the two brown wires coming out of the ceramic plate assembly on the switch side arm of the GHD’s.

Why are my GHDS not as hot?

There are a couple of reasons for this. 1 is a fault in the circuit boards in side the GHD arms and the other is ‘Shiver Mode’. If your GHDs are constantly beeping and wont heat up, before you book a repair let the straighteners warm up to above 11 degrees and they should then work properly.

Why have my GHDS just stopped working?

No power to your ghds could also mean the thermal fuse has blown inside. If your ghds won’t turn on it may also be a resistor on the circuit board that has blown. A very common fault on this model and again can be diagnosed and repaired by using our service. These are the most common causes of ghds dying.

Why do ghd straighteners stopped working?

No power to your ghds could also mean the thermal fuse has blown inside. This is designed to blow when ghds overheat. If your ghds won’t turn on it may also be a resistor on the circuit board that has blown. A very common fault on this model and again can be diagnosed and repaired by using our service.

How do you fix a beeping ghd?

If your GHDs are constantly beeping and wont heat up, before you book a repair let the straighteners warm up to above 11 degrees and they should then work properly. If you are in a rush to use them then they can be placed on a radiator for a short period of time or gently heated with a hairdryer.

How do you fix a ghd straightener that won’t heat up?

Why have my GHD straighteners stopped working?

How do you fix a straightener that won’t heat up?

  1. Make sure that your appliance is plugged into a working outlet.
  2. Check the power cable and make sure that it’s not damaged.
  3. Make sure the temperature adjustment knob is set above the MIN position.
  4. Once you plug in your iron and adjust the temperature, the thermostat indicator should light up.

Why do GHD straighteners flash red?

Also known as the ghd red light of death, a permanent or red flashing light on a ghd platinum hair straightener is a common fault with the ghd platinum hair straightener model S8T261. If your ghd has this problem and will not heat up then there is an error with the PCB which will need upgrading.

Why is the thermal fuse on my GHD not working?

Don’t get caught out by “OL” which means the thermal fuse is open circuit. If you’ve got an intermittent pair of GHD’s, then you may want to try pulling / pushing on the wires slightly whilst measuring the resistance to see if it’s the thermal fuse that is causing this.

What’s the problem with my Girls GHD straighteners?

Fixed the girls crackling GHD…burnt contacts on switch…took apart and scraped them with a small screwdriver…electronics repair could do it also. my GHDs were beeping and wouldn’t heat up but sometimes would after awhile> I looked on this site and thought it was the fuse.

What happens when the fuse on a straightener fails?

This means that gradually the internals of the fuse shrink and once they’ve shrunk below a threshold, the fuse fails prematurely. This causes the straighteners to completely die – no light, no heat, nothing.

What causes a GHD 3.1B AC unit to fail?

The thermal fuse is the most common cause of failure on the 3.1b model as GHD fitted a badly rated part. GHD used a thermal fuse that is rated to trip at 216 degrees celcius (part number SF214K).
