Why are my GHD's flashing red?
Depending on the model you have this can be perfectly normal behaviour or it may indicate a fault.
For example, on the older 3.1b model the LED will flicker on and off at a varying speed when the irons are at the correct temperature.
On the 4.2b model the LED will flash on and off at a consistent speed when the irons are at the correct temperature.
However, on the GHD S7N421 Gold and S7N421 Max irons a flashing red LED will indicate a failure of some sort and the irons will generally not heat up. In this situation they will need repairing. Please consider using our Repair Service or reading our Repair Guides.
If a Platinum model is working correctly, you'll see a white ring light like this when you turn them on:
