If the wand is turned on and the power button works correctly. However, if the plus button is pressed and still the wand is not heating up, there will be an issue with the plus heating button. It might be disconnected from the main power circuit. 

You have to check the disconnected wiring and set it up. You can fix it by reading the disassembly guide.  

Minus (-) Button Fault 

As for the plus button, you have pressed the minus button, but the wand is not heating up. The minus button also has a power fault; it might be disconnected from the wand’s primary circuit. The device has to be taken apart to figure out the wiring faults. 

You can get help from the disassembly guide to do this. 

Broken Power Cable 

The power cord is faulty if there is nothing with the power and plus or minus buttons. And that is why the Remington straightener is not turning on and heating up. If the cord is not providing electricity to the iron, it will not heat up.
