1) The irons are too cold
This is not exactly a problem with the irons, but if the irons are too cold when you switch them on, a continuous beep and flashing light and the iron will sound does not heat up. GHD calls this a feature and says it is designed to protect against damage that occurs.
If your GHDs are constantly beeping and not heating up, allow the flat irons to heat above 11 degrees before booking a repair and they should then be working properly. If you are in a hurry to use them, you can put them on a heater for a short time or gently heat them with a hair dryer.
It is normal for the straightener to keep flashing red once you turn on the switch. It will then beep and flash once it’s hot that tells you it’s ready to use.
The sound you can hear is electric arcing in your GHDs. This is bad! You should stop using them and have them repaired as they can fail completely and sometimes cause a loud bang and/or small fire.
