SOURCE: iron won't stay running

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.

Try re-tightening the wires at the plug and on the iron, but if this does not solve the problem ,replace the cable.You should be able to get it from your local hardware.

Hope this has helped you

SOURCE: wiring diagram for Rowenta DE-05

I took the iron apart for cleaning and installing a new cord and neglected to note which wire goes where. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this iron?

SOURCE: The power cord is shorting

Normally you need to remove the back plate to replace the power cord, and this is usually held on by one or two screws. With the modern trend, these covers are clipped as well and the screws are of the tamper proof type. Tamper proof drivers and bits are available at hardware stores or some importers of Chinese products. If this does not help you, please come back to me and also describe the back cover. I doubt if you can access anything useful to you through the underside of the iron.

The bottom of the iron, next to the handle, pops out, giving you access to the power wire. But at least a basic experience in electric appliances is needed here - you definitely do not want to mix the wires on the new cord and connect the live one to the bottom and rick a nasty shock.

How do you open the back plate to access the power connection. On a shark model G1568 iron??

We have a Euro Pro GI472, which kept going off and on, and the problem seemed to be an intermittent connection in the power circuit. If we "fiddled" with the cord, the power light would go off and on. To get the back off, I removed the two screws below the rubber feet, near the identification tag. Then I had to pop the red plastic light lens off the top of the iron. The lens is held by two plastic "claws" one at the top and at the bottom of the lens. Once the lens is out, there is a small Phillips-head screw visible between two light sources. I removed the screw, and that freed the cover, and made it possible to access the wiring. Testing continuity from the wall plug to the two wires inside the iron, and flexing the cord, quickly led to a spot in the cord that was slightly kinked, and that was the location of the fault. Both wires under the insulation were broken. In fact there were small balls of melted copper near the breaks. Then it is a matter of making sure you know which wire of the power cord goes to which spot in the iron (a photo or a sketch will save mistakes when reassembling) cutting out the faulty wire, getting a suitable crimp connector and a wire nut and rewiring the iron.

Iron blows electrics

Check the cord for any kinks or cuts before checking the cord connection to the appliance itself for loose or touching wires. What is decalc the iron ?

Iron not heating

Hi nowlinwells
Check your power going to the iron...if you have power going to the iron then take apart the iron and check the connection inside of the iron because it sounds like the wire is broken and not getting power to the iron.
Please rate me.

I have a Light N Easy iron that I got with points at a Save-On grocery store in September 2010. Today the iron failed to heat when I turned it on.

Check the plug and wire connected inside the iron wiring terminal. You need a multi-tester to do the continuity test of the wire. An open wire indicate a no connection, hence the iron will failed to heat.
So if you can do it, do it. But if you can't ask someone who has knowledge in appliance repair and has continuity tester.
Good luck.

My Rowenta Power Glide DE-08 iron has stopped working. Once, if I moved the cord around it worked. So I I took it apart and checked the wiring connection which seemed to be tight. I then plugged it in...


you will probably find that the cable is broken where it comes out of the iron.
this is not an unusual problem as the wire is being constantly bent and straightened here, and eventually breaks.

take the iron apart as you did before to check the connections, and cut of the last 4-5 inches of the cable and reconnect in exactly the same way it is now.
this should cure the problem.

hope this helps

I have two irons. one if them won't turn on anymore and i noticed the light kept fading out. the light on the other one flickers and it stops working halfway through straightening. any solutions?

Most likely it is the power cord. We have the same iron and the power cord has a break in it just as it comes out of the swivel. You can turn it on and hold the power cord tight up against the swivel and it should stay on. I was able to fix it by stripping the cord down to the wire soldering and adding shrink tubing to the connection. That lasted for about 1 year and it has done it again. I may have to replace it but not sure how to take it apart.

It suddenly quits...i have to juggle the line cord to have a power.

Sounds like a loose connection from the screws inside the housing of the iron. It is a wee bit of a bugger to get INTO this iron, but with a little patience, and a screwdriver (phillips, the + one) you should be able to get to where the power cord connects to the terminals inside the iron. Loosen, and retighten the connection. If the wire seems 'worn', you may have to cut it back a bit and score off some of the plastic, and re-wire.

When i am ironing all the power in the house goes off and it is a brand new iron

The iron may actually be ok. If not, remember that because it's new it will come with a guarantee.

Did you put the plug onto the iron yourself? Check inside the plug to make sure that there's no bare wires that can touch as the cord flexes as you iron. This would cause it to short and throw the power in the house.

Try using the iron in a different room. If you get the same problem then there's possibly a wiring fault (maybe a broken/worn insulation on the wires of the iron cord ... though as it's new, I would doubt this).

Are you using an electrical extension lead to plug the iron into? If you haven't overloaded the socket with other electrical appliances it may be that the extension cable has a broken/faulty/loose wire inside that when they touch, causes the power to go off. A few years ago the power in my house used to go off on occasions whenever someone went to the fridge. The fault was traced to split insulation on one of the wires in the extension cable I was using. Whenever somebody stood on the cable it shorted out and cut the power.

To be really sure - go into a neighbours and use the iron! If the power goes off - it's the iron at fault. If not, it's probably just a small problem like worn insulation/loose/broken wire in an extension lead in your own house.
