Introdução

Over time and repeated use the temperature control feature may become defective on most curling irons. This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to replace the temperature control switch. Temperature controllers consist of input-output systems. A type of input sensor and signal is needed depending on the controlled process. Outputs are used to control the process of heating and cooling. This guide does not offer instructions on how to replace individual components of the temperature control system. Replacement of the temperature control switch only is described here.
