Question DetailsAsked on 12/28/2015

I have a severed power cord to a flat iron for my hair; where can I get it repaired?

My dog chewed through the power cord on my flat iron about 2-3 inches from the plug end. I called Ace Hardware and they said they couldn't help me. Anyone else know who/where could fix this? It would likely be cheaper than buying a new flat iron.

If a low end one, probably cheaper to replace. Higher end one (I see on web they get into the $150 range, and as low as about $15), then yes cord replacement or new plug is the answer. Figure out in advance if the cord will be long enough to be functional if the cord is just cut off at the uppermost (towards iron) chewed portion of the cord and a new plug end put on - will be cheaper than having a totally new cord put on, if the shorter cord will work for you. If chewing damage only goes a few inches from the plug end, this will probably work fine for you.


Appliance Repair - Small is your Search the List category for a vendor to do this - I would guess probably about $25 for a new cord end, more like $40-60 I would think for a new cord because the device has to be taken apart to put a new cord in it. Be sure to get a firm quote for the repair when you take it in so you know if it is worth it to repair rather than replace. The age of the unit would also factor into this, as well as checking CURRENT prices for a new one - may well be cheaper now than you remember.
