Question about Irons
I've never had a problem with the iron until the last couple of time I've used it. All of a sudden it is not shutting off . I used it the other morning and turned it off and was gone all day. Later in the evening I went to put it away and realized it was still hot . I checked to see if I had turned the knob completely around and I had.mtonight I ironed again and when I finished again I turned the knob completely around just as I always have in the past. I went down for an hour and when I came back again it was still hot. Should I get rid of it? Is this something that is not fixable? I've had the iron for at least 7 or 8 years. I only used the steam mechanism once or twice but I know my daughter used the iron a few days ago to iron some labels in clothing and she put water in because she thought she needed to steam and to make it work and when it didnt heat up she called me and I told her she didn't need to steam, that she could dump out the water but that she had to turn the knob under the handle to turn the heat on. Since then for some reson it hasn't worked. She used it and put it away when she was done when it had cooled off, so I know it had shut off for her. That was the last time it sht off. So what do you think is the problem?

SOURCE: Why isn't my Iron heating up?
I do believe the thermostat is defective.All the iron have a small thermastat top control the temperature and is working like a switch.If the switch don`t work get stuck on the same position.Unfortunatly sometimes is better get a new one themn fix an old one but this is The Market and nothing i can do personally.Also make sure the thermostat knob is working properly.If you hear a click when you turn is ok.

perhaps the thermostat is sticking.as irons are cheap to replace i would try cleaning /soaking the tank to remove lime scale. or strip the iron down checking thermostat and conections.

Very odd to have brown (rust from household pipes) as your DG980 has brass, stainless and aluminum, so deposits would be white. Make sure you flush and clean steamer tank and reservoir with clear filtered or drinking water only. When final ironing job is at or near completion, pull the reservoir and hold the burst of steam button several times to purge the system of water until no more steam when red light comes on telling you it is out of water. Let cool for couple hours, and unscrew tank plug cover and screw...bring over to kitchen sink. I have a filtered water faucet that I fill and swish around in the tank and then shake out several times as dry as possible. I leave the cover off, the blue reservoir empty, so last bits of water evaporate out. Put it all back together, ready for next use. After 3 or 4 cycles of this use, clean, store routine the iron should be clean. This is painless and costs nothing but a little care. Do not use vinegar or anything else and you should be fine. The deposits will slowly be purged if you use clear filtered water only.
