Question about Rowenta Professional Luxe DM880 Iron

Rowenta DM880 Auto shutoff - Shuts off too frequently

The auto shutoff works in "over-drive" It goes to Auto-shutoff during ironing and almost immediately. It clicks on and off intermittently during ironing. It's almost impossible to iron one garment completely with out it cutting on and off.

    This is my second purchase and its the Rowenta 1600W Master. My first iron I took back to BJ's because it leaked heavy and ruined my garments and the cord had a short. I successfully returned it to BJ's and purchased another the Rowenta1600W only to experience the same problem and this time BJ's said they won't take it back it's a manufacturing problem and there's nothing they can do. I need another iron and can't afford to have any further garments ruined. How can I have this iron replace immediately because I only owned one iron and that was a the Rowenta 1600W.

    my rowenta iron works great except for the cord retract reel. there is NO leakage and there is not a problem with the auto shut-off. My cord retract reel will not retract the cord

This is a problem with a lot of Rowenta irons. It is the auto shut off that is not working properly and the only way to fix it is to have it disassembled and the switch hardwired to be on whenever the iron it plugged in. It is a thermal metal switch and it just stops working and then the iron will not turn on and the yellow light blinks.

I have a rowenta proffesional luxe iron but the cable keeps turning it off so when i move the cable it goes back on and when i am ironing it shuts off


you have a open circuit that occurs due to a wire loose at the plug end or a loose connection within the iron. a break in the cable will also display the systems you discribe. check for loose connections before you decide to replace the cable. by keeping the cable stationery when the iron is on at the plug end check wether it switches off when you move the cable near the plug end.if it switches off the loose wire is in the plug if it does not the try the moving the cable nearer the Iron end.

Red light keeps blinking and iron shuts off


Sounds as if the cable may be damaged or a loose connection. May be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

The cord on my professional Luxe has a short near the handle.


Take your iron to a hardware store and they should be able to guide you to the tool that you will need.

Iron won't heat up!!!


A lot of rowenta irons have a safety or auto shutoff built in them that fails. The only way I have found to fix them is to disassemble it and permanently connect the switch then it works fine, just does not auto shut off.
