My iron will not stop flashing and will not go to green light -- it will not heat up
Check the fuse first ! If the fuse is in good condition , then try this troubleshooting .
1: Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam. Fill
the tank up .
2:Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some of the settings are
dry and won't create steam.
3:Set the temperature dial to the shaded setting which represents steam.
You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a
white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture
(steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no
4:Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a couple of
minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That
should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if
the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent.
5:Iron horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal.
6:Use the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum
7:Let the iron get to a high temperature before expecting steam. If the
soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in
fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an
anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low
temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.
