A common failure on the GHD Gold S7N261 and S7N421 Max is failure of the thermal fuse.
The irons will flash red and sound the alarm tone.
The original PEPI H1 240 Degs C thermal fuse is not available.
With the correct parts and equipment the thermal fuse can be successfully replaced with an alternative that is similar to those used on other GHD irons.
The kit contains;
240 Degs C Microtemp axial thermal fuse.
Silicon outer sleeve, cut to size after you have determined the correct position for the thermal fuse and trimmed the leadouts to size. 300 Degs C. 2mm Internal diameter. .5mm wall thickness.
A two foot piece of 300 Degs C solder.
Kapton tape. Wrap a small piece around the body of the thermal fuse.
Thoroughly clean all parts that are to be soldered.
Tin the thermal fuse ends with the 300 Deg C solder.
Tin the pads on the ceramic element with 300 Degs C solder. A pre-heater will be required! Set to 200 Degs C.
Offer up the tinned wire to the element and melt the solder with an iron at 450 Degs C. A Pre-heater will be required. Repeat with the other end.
The thermal fuse must be in firm contact with the ceramic plate! Bend the wires before soldering to achieve that.
High temperature soldering equipment is required.
Do not over heat the thermal fuse during the soldering process.
A pre-heater is likely to be required, set to around 200 Degs C
You may wish to cover the soldered ends with high temperature silicon.
We advise you to solder all PCB wire push fit terminals during any repair.
You must use 300 Degs C solder.
Most end users will not have the required skills or access to such equipment and I would recommend our GHD Gold & Max Repair Service instead.
