Use these magic words on GOOGLE!

WOW ~ quite impressive! "Hard Water" contains lots of additional elements and chemicals. These tend to corrode and calcify parts.

I suspect a sensor has become contaminated/encrusted and now fails to reset BUT YOU DID NOT include a model number so I can'l help you any further.

You asked if there was "some way" and here it is... PROVIDING that your remaining parts DO NOT have any loose wires in the parts left over...

Below see this tubular stuff called "heat shrink"... The more it's heated the more it shrinks down in size... Of course there are 'limits' as to how far it will shrink down so picking the right size is very important.

A common hair dryer will aid you in getting a proper 'shrink' and fit.Because it does shrink, do cut it slightly longer than you actually need... it's easy to trim to size later.

Sooo... as the Heat Shrink heats, it molds itself in place and keeps the iron innards in place too (within the handle and under the shrink)!

No worries about electrical shorts or a bad fit ~ unless you pick on a original heat shrink size that is too large thus causing a loose fit? If you find your heat shrink slipping around "AT ALL"... start over with a slightly smaller size.

Also, as it shrinks it gets slightly thicker around "the shrink cylinder outer walls" thus assuring a lasting snug fit! This also provides a slight measure of protection if the iron is dropped on the shrink protected area.

Of course your iron will continue to transfer heat beyond it's "new-formed body" and your flat iron remains quite useful without worries of rubber or particles imparted to your hair!

Here is what the Heat Shrink looks like... Home Depot may have just the size you need... I suspect it may be a $3 fix!
