GHD SS 4.0

This model is based upon the MK4 GHD straighteners, but it has a wider heater plate. I've only seen them in black. "SS" stands for "Salon Stylers". As they are based on the Mk4 GHDs, then they will suffer from the same possible problems. Therefore please see the Mk4 repair guide for repair information.

Replacement cables for the type 1 version and type 2 version (see details below) are available in the spares shop and the replacement method is described here.

Some random facts about this model:

There are two types of SS4.0 which do not have interchangable parts, despite them having the same model number. To work out which version you have, see the type 1 vs type 2 comparison page.

Note: this pair was sold to me as the hinge was broken, and hence the crack near the hinge on the Non Switch Side arm!

The brown wires going to the heater plate are the NTC Thermistor leads:

Here are some videos we've put together on how to get the ceramic plates apart.
