I have been using NI-A57SR for couple of months but few days back it showed no sign of "turn on" its not getting heating up nor the indicator is showing any light.i guess the thermal fuse could have been burnt.
I literally have no idea how to open this press nor i know where to source the fuse or alternatively if it has some other problem.
I had the same problem, when I took it apart, I noticed the theromstat points needed sanding. Just a reminder, make sure to write down the order of wire leads before disconnecting. By the way to test if the heating element is working connect white lead to the second connection from the left and black lead to the far right. Place your iron flat down on a wet cloth ( so that you won't burn your surface). You can also use an electrical tester. If heating element does not work though, it is time to buy a new iron.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

please see the cause and fix it: a) tank or ports clogged. Dissasembly and inspect replace tank and seal if badly clogged. Emptying iron after each use allow heats to evaporate remaining water and helps prevent clooging. Inspect valve and linkage: clean or replace as necessary GOD BLESS YOU
A. Check the wire connections. If so, tighteing or chaning the cord with do . B. Thermostat migh got suck, if so, inspection of it will show and you need to gently sand the contact point. Or worst case senario, the heating element (coil) inside the heating plate might have been burnt, is this is the case, the iron is toast.
1: Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam.
the tank up . 2:Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some
of the settings are
dry and won't create steam. 3:Set the temperature dial to the shaded
setting which represents steam.
You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a
white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture
(steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no
steam. 4:Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a
minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That
should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if
the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent. 5:Iron
horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal. 6:Use
the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum
temperature setting. 7:Let the iron get to a high temperature before
expecting steam. If the
soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in
fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an
anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low
temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.
first test your heating element to see if it is working.
You can by pass the control module by removing it from the line. Just disconnect all wires that goes to the module and put aside, then, connect back lead to the far right connection and white wire to the third connection from the left. Be careful playing with electricity is hazardous to yout health if you don't know what you are doing.
Same issue i believe
with metal part laying flat (ironing position) and looking at bottom side, from the left to the right - white & blue leads, lamp(resistor lead), red then both black leads and other end of lamp.
im guessing the themal fuse is the lamp? what is the PN where can i get it.
i had a small shere fall out of the unit, besides the positioning switch where else would this be located?
If you are using tap water then the hardness of the water could cause the problem. You can usually fix this buy running vinegar water through the iron once or twice like you would a coffee pot.
If you have been using distilled water then you probably need to replace the iron.
I have a temporary solution that is working: Use WD-40 around the switch. Spray with the straw that comes with the WD-40. Let stand for a couple days, then turn the whole unit upside down and spray again, and let it stand that way for a couple days. If we could get inside, it could be more of a sure thing, but I had given up on mine and when I accidently hit the switch after siting for the last few days, , it came on!
Now for Sears to try to locate the tool that will open the case.
