My styler is constantly beeping and won't heat up, what should I do?

The symptoms described above are usually associated with a feature of the ghd IV stylers called "Shiver Mode". The purpose of this feature is to stop any kind of electrical failure due to a build up of condensation which can occur if a styler is left in a cold climate.  Specifically, if the internal temperature of the styler is below 8 degrees, it will not switch on and heat up normally. Typically, this feature is mistaken as a fault with styler. If you experience this you should complete the following steps:

• Make sure the styler is switched off and unplugged.
• Wrap your styler in a dry towel and place in a warm room. An airing cupboard is ideal if you have one, alternatively, you can place the wrapped styler close by a radiator (at least 6 inches away). *
• Leave the styler to warm back up to room temperature gradually - this make take anywhere from 20 - 90 minutes depending on start temperature.
• Remove towel and use styler as normal.

To prevent your styler going into Shiver Mode you should:
• Keep your styler in a warm room.
• Not leave your styler on cold surfaces. i.e. hardwood/tiled flooring, windowsills or in the boot of your car.
• Always aim to keep your styler well insulated, especially during the Winter months. A ghd carry bag should be sufficient.

* Note
NEVER apply direct heat to a styler i.e. holding it over a fire or cooker
NEVER place a styler directly onto a heated surface i.e. radiator or cooker
