Re: Rowenta SM700 (Listed 40N5 or S)
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
On most models, some common faults are:
faulty AC plug, cord and/or the line feed to th iron itself;
thermostatic/temperature control and/or the auto-shutoff;
open heating element.
A continuity or multi tester (VOM/DVM) would be required to check the above components. This wold be a matter of checking if there is continuity from the plug to the cord to the feed-in to the switch to the element.

Considering the iron was at a minimum two years old, I decided to purchase another Rowenta. I found the recommended solution documented on a FAQ sheet enclosed with the new iron.
I actually own another Rowenta iron (I now have three) that has the same issue. I will send one iron, the one manufactured in Germany, to a Rowenta Service Center to see if can be repaired - it was the first Rowenta iron I purchased and it provided several good years of service.
