The electric iron is an electric appliance that uses electric heat to iron fabrics, leather paper, plastic film, etc. It is widely used in garment factories and homes, and is generally used for ironing flat pants and fabrics in general households. Because the electric iron is economical, practical, easy to use, and easy to manufacture, it has developed rapidly. In recent years, with the continuous expansion of the production scale of electric irons and the gradual reduction of manufacturing costs and sales prices, the social ownership is also growing. There are very few families in towns who do not have electric irons. Because electric irons often work in high-pressure, high-temperature, high-humidity environments, some failures often occur, and some failures may affect household property and personal safety, and must be repaired in time. In this article, we will give a detailed analysis of various common faults and maintenance methods and techniques of electric irons, hoping to bring inspiration and help to everyone.
Types and Features of Electric Irons The electric irons on the market today are a dazzling array of products. Generally, the electric iron can be divided into four types according to the functional structure: ordinary type, automatic temperature regulation type, temperature regulation steam injection type, temperature regulation steam injection type. According to the power supply, there are various types: 100, 150, 200, 300, 500, 800, 900, 1000, 1200W, etc. Most of the households use 500-1000w specifications. The following types of electric irons are mostly portable or special. Products for travel and other special purposes. Corresponding functions and power, the specifications of China's electric iron are as follows:
Ordinary type 200, 300, 500, 700, 1000W, automatic temperature regulation type 300, 500, 750, 1000W, temperature control steam type 500, 750, 1000W. According to the base material or process, mainly: cast iron type, aluminum alloy Plate type, steel plate type and other three. The characteristics of the electric iron are briefly described below.
Ordinary electric iron. This kind of electric iron has simple structure, low price, convenient manufacture and maintenance, but the temperature can not be controlled automatically. The ironing temperature can only be mastered by experience. If the temperature is too high, the power supply can be cut off. Due to the lack of temperature control function, such electric irons have gradually been eliminated.
Self-regulating electric iron. This kind of electric iron can usually be automatically adjusted in the range of 60-250 °C, which can automatically cut off the power supply and save power than the ordinary type. It is equipped with a bimetal temperature control element. When used, the temperature control knob can be aligned with the same fabric name as the ironed fabric, and the temperature is controlled within the range allowed by the woven fabric.
In addition, in the process of self-control, there is an indicator light to indicate the continuity of the circuit, which is convenient to use.
Thermostatic steam-type electric iron. This kind of product has both temperature regulation function and steam generation, which not only avoids the trouble of artificial water spray when ironing, but also makes the fabric more evenly wetted and has better ironing effect. There are generally 8 to 50 small holes in the bottom plate of the electric iron. When used, the steam can be ejected from the small holes by the button, and the steam is about 10 g/min.
Thermostatic steam spray type electric iron. In addition to the full function of the steam-operated electric iron, this type of electric iron is also provided with a spray hole for spraying the atomized cold water in front of the handle, which is suitable for increasing the humidity when ironing thick clothes. The last two types of electric irons are more comprehensive and easy to use, but the price is relatively high. The spray mechanism can be generally divided into two types: steam can and drip, wherein the latter structure is more complicated.
