Iron will not stay on


More than likely your power cord has a broken wire. Plug the iron in and mover the cord around. See if you can find the broken wire. Typically where the cord comes out of the iron and right at the plug. Or replace the whole cord. Your local hardware store, youtube, or menards can show you how. Very easy to do. I tend to stay away from home depot.

Fire came out of cord conecting to iron got a little burn on my arm


The cord has an internal break and it made contact and burned through the insulation, your arm happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Have the cord replaced before you use the iron again. If you happen to touch that bare spot on the cord you could be electrocuted.

Was using my Shark x-tended steamburst Euro-pro iron G1490 and it turned off and won't turn on


I had the same problem. The repair took less than 15 min. I opened the bottom of the iron and discovered what appears to be a design flaw on the cord holder/fastener. The holder is wedged so tight that it pinched the cord wire almost in half. I removed the cord, cut it off at the pinched spot and reinstalled. I also put a small piece of rubber onto the part of the holder that is made onto the body of the iron. In addition, I rotated the fastener cap so that the smooth side of it is against the cord.

Cord


If the iron is still in warranty send it back via the shop where you bought it, the inner wire is frayed and needs replacement, if you know an electrician its as simple as shortening the flex by a few inches and reattaching it again. the inner wires twist with time and become frayed or come loose from connection

DM865 Rowenta Steam Iron auto-off indicator light goes off and on depending on which way the cord is turned or rotated or moved - dosen't seem to stay on.


It sounds like a break in the wire, re-wire plug and take about a inch of length off the cable. if the fault is on the iron side it will need taking to a repair shop.

Iron won't stay running. I'm pretty sure it's the cord because if you move the cord the power is restored. Would a new cord solve the problem and where do you get a new cord?


With modern iron it can be difficult to renew the cord due to the special screws they use when making them. It does sound like the power cord is damaged. It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

Power won't come on


You have a short in the cord. If you knew where the short was, you could possibly repair it. However, I would strongly suggest buying a new iron. An iron is an appliance that can burn your house down even when it's in GOOD working order. You should be able to buy a decent iron for around $30, and I would say the peace of mind alone would be worth it. Hope this helps,

Iron not staying on


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.
