The thermostat in the iron controls the temperature of the iron. The red light indicates when the power applied to heat the iron which is set by the temperature dial on the iron. When it reaches the correct temperature the thermostat turn off the power and that is when the red light switches off.
Could be a possible block of the water jackets to the steamer,ajammed valve .press down the water release nob several times to see if the block clears.Have an air pressure hose connected to the inlet while the nob is pressed.
You will need to dismantle your iron. Follow the instructions below to locate the fault:
a. Make sure the power cord is not damaged.
b. Then, check the temperature selector. If it is in the correct position, something else is wrong.
c. Check the thermostat. As you disassemble the iron, clean the
lint from the thermostat. Then test it with your ohmmeter. Set your ohmmeter on
RX1 and clip the probes onto the terminal. Take a piece of wood or
plastic and move the
contacts open, then closed. When it closes you should see the ohmmeter just from high to zero. It so, it is working well.
d. Test the heating element. Do this by removing the base of the
iron. There you should see the probes. Take you ohmmeter, set on RX1, and
touch the probes. If it reads between 10 to 25 ohms, it is working
e. If you have an electronic iron, the only other possibility is
the circuit board. If you have exhausted your options, take the iron to
Switch light goes on when pressed but goes off if... OR iron does not heat at all even pressing the button to turn it on continually.
Don't understand which one question you are asking
But if there is no heat at all after switching it on, it needs to go to iron heaven but be sure to cut the plug of the end, Saftey reasons at the dump. BUT if lights are coming on the iron is working. the large dial on the water filler is temperature control. Turn this around to cotton or linen.
The light will come on and off while in use, it allows you to know that the iron has cooled and is going back to your select temperature( on the large dial)
Make sure that you use water in the iron as it will aid your ironing and make it quicker. Make sure that the iron temperature dial on the water filler is at the correct temperature for the item that you are ironing.
Hope this helps
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.
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.
