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.

Can my ghds be repaired?

It depends what model of Ghd you need repairing. 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. If the button is a slide button that slides from side to side or up and down then the ghd can be repaired (see model list below)
  2. If the button is a round button and you press it in to switch the straighteners on and off then the ghds cannot be repaired as no parts are available (see model list below)

FixMyGhds.com can repair any model of ghds if they have a button that slides.

Below is a list of GHD straightener Model Numbers that Can be Repaired:

GHD 3   GHD 3.1b   GHD 4.0   GHD 4.1   GHD 4.2   GHD 4.3   GHD 4.2b

GHD 5.0   MS  MS2   MS4   MS5   SS   SS2   SS4   SS5.0
