Question about Irons
The heating element, or the thermal fuse has opened. You'll need to open it up and check continuity of both. The thermal fuse is probably easily found and replaced, however the element probably means its more cost effective to replace the iron.

i had the same problem and the Philips hekp site was no use. I turned my iron off until it was completely cooled down then switched it back on again, with the steam number turned to 5 and the heat on max. as soon as the ready light went off, i put my iron in the horizontal position and shook it back and forth (quite vigorously) and it seemed to have dont the trick!

SOURCE: Iron No Longer Heats Up
Recommended solution, gently shake, did not work.
Considering the iron was at a minimum two years old, I decided to purchase another Rowenta. I found the recommended solution documented on a FAQ sheet enclosed with the new iron.
I actually own another Rowenta iron (I now have three) that has the same issue. I will send one iron, the one manufactured in Germany, to a Rowenta Service Center to see if can be repaired - it was the first Rowenta iron I purchased and it provided several good years of service.
