How can I find the "Polyester" setting?


Just put it on the lowest setting that is near to the off position. Polyester can melt on a high heat setting.

Wet steam coming out of iron


You have to take part the iron by unscrewing the three bolts on the side handle with a small phillips driver. Then loose the allen screw on one side of the black thermostat wheel to unloosen it. Then take out the two bolt plastic protectors under the handle and unscrew the two allen bolts, carefully separate the top from the botton of the iron, carefully not to pry loose the cables from the top to the hot shoe.
On the back you will see a small white square box, that is the thermostat, which has a button on top, all you need to do is to push it in. This will make the iron heat up unless you have a thermostat failure (Black wheel with temperature indicators), which you will need to order the part and change it.

The electrical cord seems to have come loose near the iron itself causing the iron to shut off. is this a known problem & how do you fix it?


This has been happening since the first cord was attached to the first electric iron. The cord takes a beating. You will have to disassemble the handle and fix it ... or get a replacement.

D2030 Iron: Iron keeps shutting off...like auto-shut off is al...


OK... quick disclaimer. Me = not responsible if you break your iron, set something on fire or electrocute yourself. If you're not sure what you're doing, find a qualified person to help or trash the iron. Getting hurt isn't worh a $40 iron.

That said, mine had the same issue... in my case, was a break in the cord.

Before you do anything that follows, don't forget to drain the iron. You'll have a big mess if you don't. :)

Accessing the cord connections requires a security screwdriver. You can buy one at a hardware or electronics repair store. OR if you're chep like me, make one yourself by using a Dremel with a cutoff wheel to cut a notch in a thinner blade, flat blade screwdriver. Any cheap flatblade screwdriver will do (eye protection recommended since you'll be grinding metal).

Unscrew the two screws in the back. Once removed, the colored plastic cover can be removed by inserting a screwdriver near the tabs that hold the cover in place and prying a bit.

Removing the inner cover is a little trickier.

The handle under the power indicator light (the red one) has an upper and lower section. Squeeze the lower portion of the handle directly beneath the light pretty firmly. You'll notice a slight separation between the back section and the handle. The back section is what you'll remove. I removed mine by squeezing the handle and pulling the power cord straight backward (I know that sounds odd, but it was the easiest way to get some leverage, plus it's already broken, remember???) Don't pull super hard, but firmly enough to separate the back panel from the back of the iron.

Once the back cover is removed, it's a pretty simple cord change. As there are a few more wires than some people are accustomed to, I recommend writing down the wire combos so you can reattach everything as it was.

If you have difficulty removing the crimped wire nuts (the plastic covers), you can use a pair of pliers to squeeze opposite the crimp and they'll open up enough to allow the wires to slide out.

From there, reassemble... opposite of the disassembly order.

Mine worked perfectly after this quick fix. Hope yours does too. Good luck and be safe!

The electrical cord is seperating from the base of the iron and exposing the cord. The plastic covering is in parts. Can this be repaired?


You can repair this yourself but you will have to take the handle apart to access the power cord inside the handle. Just pull the cord inside and wrap with electrical tape to hold in place. Hope this helps

Turns on, flashes yellow but never heats up


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.

Just stopped heating


Unless you have a 5 or 6 hundred dollar iron, there is an excellent rule of thumb when an iron quits working. Buy a new one. These days, irons can be purchased cheaply enough that it is WELL worth the money. Not just for the convenience, but for the safety issues. This is an appliance that could burn your house down even if it's in PROPER working order. Hope this helps!!
