The heating element is incorporated in the base. Rarely is the heating element bad. Its usually a connection or control problem. You cannot just replace the heating element.

It is a Rowenta Professional. It won't heat, the light will come on but the iron does not get hot. When I put water in it the water pours out the holes due to it not heating. I have had it for about 5...

Possible that the heating element is open. You will need to check the continuity of the element, make sure that the thermostat is contacting if not remove and reset if the element is good. The power cord is good as the light comes on.

Yellow light comes on but iron does not warm up

You will have to check the continutiy of the heating element . Use a multimeter and open the connection port. Look at the terminals and take the test. it must shown full continutity, if not the element has failed.. remove cover and get full access to confirm. Good day

Rowenta dm860 stop heating and nno power

If the input led is not glowing it means the connection to the mains inside your iron has got disconnected. Just open the iron. Check the input on the mains and check all the three wires are connected properly. It will heat again. You might have been changing to other type of clothes which requires more heat. Hence, you asked more voltage to the heating element and possibly due to more voltage the connection got broke and now the circuit is incomplete hence no led and no heatup.

My iron will not consistently get HOT.


The clicking sound is given by the solenoid that turns on and off the iron element. Heating cannot be turned on, and the iron keeps clicking without making any heat.

The cause of the problem can be a defective solenoid, a broken contact, or an open thermistor (it will turn the solenoid back on). The oven must be taken apart and tested to find the fault.

I have a DX 6700 that does not come on when plugged into the outlet.


Either the wiring to AC power line is broken or the heating element is broken.

The heating element is tested taking apart the iron, disconnecting element contact, and reading impedance on element contact with a multimeter set at Rx1. If the element has no continuity (circuit open), then the element must be replaced.

If the power cord is fused (like for example in UK), check also the fuse in the power cord, try replacing it.

Rowenta precision iron DM 561 will not heat up

Most irons for which you pay more than $10 (like this nice Rowenta) will have a replaceable heating element. The problem seems to be to try to find where you can get the heating element. My best bet would be for you to contact a Rowenta service center (see listing at They should be able to tell you where you can get the heating element.

Before you go that route, I am assuming you already plugged the iron directly into the outlet in the wall (not in the surge strip)? Wouldn't be the first time a single outlet of a power strip goes bad.

Good Luck,
