Correct operation is as follows:

Faults found on the GHD Gold S7N261 & S7N421 Max

These models incorporate comprehensive protection circuitry. Most faults will trigger the error detailed below.

"Squeal" error sound after plugging in

About 10 seconds after plugging the irons in to the mains socket the on/off switch flashes red and a sound like a squeal will be heard. This will repeat every 15 seconds or so.

Faults found to cause this error are;

"Squeal" error sound during use

The irons turn on and heat up normally. Shortly after reaching the correct temperature, possibly whilst you are actually using the irons, the on/off switch flashes red and you hear a squeal like sound. This will repeat every 15 seconds or so.

Faults found to cause this error are;

Switch off during use

The irons turn on and heat up normally. During use they switch off. Pressing the on/off button may bring them back on again. This repeats as the irons are moved around.

Mains cable is damaged causing intermittant loss of the mains supply to the irons. See the video below for details of how to replace the cable.

Dead. No sounds or on/off button illumination.

PCB fault. Faulty ARM Cortex Microprocessor.

Short circuit on any part of the ARM Cortex peripheral circuitry.

Please note that software at the factory is used to adjust values stored in the ARM Cortex Flash memory to cater for variations in the values of each element and thermistor.

Fitting a replacement element or PCB may introduce a mismatch and cause the irons to operate at a lower temperature than expected.
