Why are my Ghds beeping?

There are several reasons that you may get a bleeping noise from your Ghds.

  1. Shiver mode – When the ghds are are below about 10 deg C ( in a cold room or may have been in your bag while you have been outside during cold weather). This is a built in feature and is normal. Ghd introduced this feature to protect the heater plates from cracking. If you think your Ghds may be in shiver mode warm up gently with a hair dryer or place on a warm radiator for a few minutes to warm up. If they are still bleeping when warm then they are faulty
  2. Intermittent bleeping – If it is intermittent bleeping it will usually be the power lead connection and will usually come and go as you move the lead
  3. Regular loud bleeping – this is usually the component that detects and controls the ghd temperature. Usually when it makes this noise the Ghds do not heat up and require repairing.
  4. Irregular quiet bleeping – this is usually caused by faulty resistors on the circuit board. Some pcb faults can be repaired and some require the circuit board to be replaced. Usually the ghd fault has been caused by a power surge either because of a faulty power lead or a faulty power lead connector. These components need checking properly otherwise the fault on your straighteners will return.

FixMyGhds.com offer a fixed price for all of the above faults and regardless of the number of faults we would never ask you for anymore than £24.95 for the repairs. We fully test every pair of ghds before returning them and we guarantee the GHDs. Because we keep all the parts in stock 95% of our repairs are carried out the day that we receive them.

Are my GHD straighteners under lifetime warranty?

There is a common misconception that ghd have a lifetime warranty but unfortunately this is not true. No ghds have ever carried a lifetime warranty. The warranty on certain GHD products has been increased over time and the length of the warranty indicated below is correct at the time of writing this (February 2021)

GHD Platinum +                   GHD warranty period 3 years

GHD Platinum                      GHD warranty period 2 years

GHD Eclipse                          GHD warranty has now expired on all these models as they haven’t been produced for a                                                      number of years

GHD Ghd 5.0                         GHD warranty has now expired on all these models as they haven’t been produced for a                                                      number of years

GHD Curling tongs               GHD warranty 2 years

GHD Hair Dryers                  GHD warranty 12 months (except Helios 2 years)

GHD SS5 wide plate             GHD warranty 2 year

GHD 4.2 b (classic)              GHD warranty 2 years

 

GHD are very strict with regard to the warranty start date. There is a sticker attached to all GHD products containing the Model number and a Date Code. If your date code indicates that the product is still in warranty then GHD will honor the warranty

If The date code indicates that the product is out of warranty you will need to prove the date that you bought the straighteners. (The difference in date is because the product will have been in stock for sometime before you bought it)

Because you have to prove the date that you bought your ghds in most cases, it is important to keep your proof of purchase. It is a good idea to register your product as soon as possible with GHD in case there is a warranty claim later.

You will find that GHD are very strict with the warranty start date. It is unlikely, in our experience, that GHD will give you any grace on the warranty period. Telling them that the ghd product was a present and you didn’t receive them for 2 months after they were purchased or you have only used them a few times will make no difference – they will only warrant them for the period above, taken from the purchase date.

The next problem that you will have is the time that it takes for GHD to acknowledge a claim and send you a new ghd. You will probably find that it will take about 2 weeks.

It is worth noting that GHD don’t repair any straighteners and if you have a genuine warranty claim within the warranty period ghd will simply replace the product with new although the warranty on the new pair that they send  will expire on the date that the old pair would have expired on.

However if your ghd Straighteners have broken and they are out of warranty all is not lost. We are an independent GHD hair straightener repairer and have been carrying out ghd repair since 2010. In that time we have repaired approximately 13,000 pairs of ghds and so have probably the best knowledge of GHD and their problems of anyone in the country.

Unfortunately we cant repair the Platinum Models (no one can as no compatible parts are not available) However we can repair all models with a slide on/ off switch and because we keep all the parts for these models in stock the repair will be carried out the same day that we receive them.

Can my ghds be repaired?

Ghd repair service – fixmyghds.com

Generally speaking most models of straighteners are repairable no matter how old. However some of the very latest ghd straighteners as well as all hair hairdryers and curling tongs are not repairable as no parts are available.

If you have ghd straighteners that are broken there is a really easy way to tell if they are repairable – look at the on/off button

  1. All the models that have an on/ off button that slides from side  or up and down can be repaired (see model list below), no matter how old they are.
  2. If the button is a round button and you press it in to switch the straighteners on and off then 2 models of ghd cannot be repaired these are Ghd Platinum and Ghd Elclipse,  as no parts are available. See the images at the bottom of this blog to identify Platinum and Eclipse.
  3. However we can now repair the the new model Ghd Gold model number S7N261 (model number shown in top left of identification sticker)
