Question about Rowenta DW9080 Steamium 1800-Watt Steam Iron w/ 400-Hole Platinum Soleplate

1 Answer

Rowenta DW9080 Auto/Off stuck. How do I bypass the Auto/Off feature, or find a replacement switch?

Rowenta DW9080 How do I bypass the Auto/Off feature, or find a replacement switch? I'm well aware of it's function, problem is auto/off indicator will not turn off so it will not heat. Yes I tried shaking it. I have emailed Rowenta customer service but they offer no help outside of sending it in for service($80+), won't advise part # for switch. Right now it's useless so any option would help. Ideally a copy of the factory repair manual, a couple pics of someone bypassing it, or referral to a source for a replacement switch. Also, anyone who can actually identify the actual auto/off switch, as I'm not sure which one it is yet. Thank you!

It sounds to me like the thermal cutoff switch has blown. Irons have these as a safety device similar to a fuse to protect against fire in the event the iron gets too hot. These are not very costly to replace. Here is a link to where you can buy them:

http://www.welco.com.cn/?gclid=CJiWv7TN2ZQCFQpzHgodl1LXQQ

, Make sure you get one of the exact same cutoff point as the one designed for your Iron. If you put in a higher temp device it will be harder to blow but will make the iron dangerous as it may cause a fire if it over heats. Some shady repair men will just bypass this and the iron will work again fine but this is a dangerous practice as it directly puts you of danger. If you do have it repaired at a shop demand for the old thermal cutoff from your unit when you drop it off so the tech will know you know what is wrong with it and that you will check to make sure that it has really been changed. This will also not give him the chance to over charge you when he knows you know it is only a 1 dollar part and easy to change.
This device is very easy to change, If you can open your iron you could easily do this yourself. The part, as you will see on the site where you buy them, only has 2 wires one comming out of each end. You simply cut out the old 1 and replace it with the new one. You do not even have to worry which end goes where. It is like a fuse, it works the same either direction. You have to buy some wire crimp connector to connect it, you can not just solder it in due to the heat in the iron. In a pinch you could just securely twist the ends of the leads with the leads from the old cutoff if you clip the leads from the old cutoff real close to the device. This will leave you with plenty of wire to get a good twist. I always use the crimp connectors so it looks more professional.
Anyway, I hope you found this to be helpful and if you need more help feel free to ask me. I will stay with you on this until we have it fixed.

I believe that is how the safety feature works.

Once the iron detects no movement for a certain period of time (the iron assumes you have finished ironing) the iron will shut of the heating element.

One you have moved it around, the timer should prevent it from auto shutting down for a period of time.

IRon heats standing but the light goes out when I set it horizontal to iron a garment. I think the cord is needing replacement but need advice.


If the iron is not moved while it is plugged
in, an internal safety switch will turn it off.
- It will turn off in 8 minutes if left vertically or
in 30 seconds if left on its soleplate or tipped
over. A red flashing light indicates that the
auto-off has been activated.

The above information is from the Rowenta DX1700 Owner's Manual. I think most, if not all Rowenta irons have the "auto off" safety feature. If your iron is going off before the 30 seconds idle time, the sensor may be defective. If you are letting it sit on the sole plate longer than 30 seconds, you may just need to work faster. ;-)

Rowenta DM880 Auto shutoff - Shuts off too frequently


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.
