    Amazon in the states has them for about $21. I don't have any idea how much it would cost you to repair it in Europe. You'd have to check.

    I was hoping they fixed it themselves and it was something simple. It's a real bummer, as I have only used it exactly once so far.

    original poster hasn't been here since 2018, so probably won't answer.

    Contact the company to see if they have a guarantee policy. They want our business and will often replace a product that does not last as long as expected.

    She hasn't but Calico Cat picked it up and was asking questions. That's who I was responding to.

    I have the Clover mini Wedge iron. They are not made anymore. It's a great little iron if you can find one still out there somewhere.

    I'm curious. I have one that I don't use. Why do you like it so well?

    The Clover Wedge iron? It reminds me of the play iron I had when I was a little girl with child size metal ironing board. It gets hot enough to press seams and easy to hold. Perfect for pressing at machine. No auto shut off. About 6 inches long.



    Amazon had a flash sale on them before they were discontinued for $1l.99 each. I bought them for Christmas gifts for my sewing group (and a spare for me) and we use them at our retreats by our machines. So far all the irons are working great and it's been a few years.

    Treat yourself to a new one. You must have used the burned out one a lot, you deserve a new one.
