My wife says her ironing machine doesn't get hot enough. This is the type with a 6" roller that you feed the clothes into. There are three elements. I have posted on here before about a part that was broken.

So where do I start to trouble shoot this machine? How can I check each element to see if they are working correctly? They all get too hot to touch!

What pictures would you need to help diagnose the problem?

Hi Black Forest
Use one of those clamp on Amp meters to measure the current and compare the reading to what's written on the specifications tag on the iron.
