So, I was preparing to make a bow tucks bag. Getting all of my ironing done at once. Then I noticed that my fusible pellon wasn't fusing at all. O.K. tomorrow I will go get a new iron. I have had an Oreck that just quit working and now a Black & Decker that seems to have done the same thing. Then as I was trying desperately to squeeze that last little bit of heat from my broken iron, I noticed the button was OFF. Works much better in the ON position.
