We believe this is the only thermal fuse currently being sold in the UK that meets all the safety standards of the original thermal fuse GHD fitted.
Thermal fuse suitable for all GHD's, except some variants of the MS4.0 irons (see HERE for the smaller MS4 thermal fuse). This thermal fuse is rated at 229 degs C.
Most replacement thermal fuses for GHDs sold by other suppliers are rated at 240 degrees C, however we don't believe this is safe for a few reasons:
- Genuine Mk4 and newer GHDs have a 229 degrees C thermal fuse inside.
Therefore the CE mark is invalid if a 240 degrees C fuse is fitted.
The CE mark shows the manufacturer has determined the item meets EU safety, Health and Environmental standards.
- A 240 degrees C thermal fuse will take a lot longer to trip resulting in more melted plastic. This is because of the thermal conductivity between the heater and the fuse and the fact a lot of the heat is conducted elsewhere, away from the fuse.
This fuse has been custom manufactured to our exact specification.
It has an extra layer of insulation over the wires which maintains the product's double insulation which is required for safety as it does not have an earth. The original GHD fuses use special double insulated wire (two independent layers of insulation over the same conductive core). This is a bit specialist, so we've added a separate insulation layer instead around the area of the wires that may come into contact with the metal heater plate.
Kapton tape is also used around the body of the thermal fuse with one side removed to provide the best thermal contact with the element, exactly the same as the original thermal fuse.
Please make sure that any over heating fault is repaired before fitting a new thermal fuse!
There will usually be a reason the thermal fuse has failed, except on MK3.1 irons, where failure can occur due to ageing.

All thermal fuses are individually checked for good continuity before being sent out.
This thermal fuse is slightly larger than the fuse used in older models of GHD.
Therefore modification of the plastic plate mounting part may be required. For more information please see our support page about thermal fuses and watch the video below.
