Question about Irons
The cycling on and off of the steam iron is not abnormal. The themostat in the iron on and off the power supply to the heating element, keeping the temperature of the sole plate constant at the desired temperature. Without this on and off mechanism of the themostat, the sole plate will contiune to heat non-stop till extreme temperature.
My question to the op is how do you know if the iron is not fully heated? I suspect that you misinterpret the cycling of the iron as a defect and assumed that the iron will not fully heat up.
But in fact if the temperature of iron did not raise to expected, then it is a different issue.

This iron appears to have a problem related to the auto-off function.
Regardless of manufacturer's advice, no amount of moving or shaking will reset the function.
Sorry, Oscar, but the thermostat setting has no effect.

Try setting the thermostat to a little less than maximum
