Light comes on, but iron will not heat up

The iron is plugged in correctly. The light come on, however the stainless steel bottom remains cold no matter how long the iron plugged in to the power outlet. The power outlet is working ok, as I am using it to charge my phone, vac, etc. Please advise what can be done to correct the problem. I have a rowenta iron that when plugged in will light up for 2 seconds then the light goes out....no heat felt on soleplate. I purchased this iron 4 years ago and the warranty was for the first year. The iron is a DE8000 and I want to disassemble it but am stuck. I am using a torx screw driver and I have the bottom plate off but the top of the plate is still attached and it is a mystery as to how to get to the other torx screws, any one out there with disassembly help please reply THANK YOURalph

    Same problem.  The light goes on on the left side to indicate the heat level, but on the right side the temp light stays green and the iron doesn't heat.

    Iron light comes on, heats momentarily then goes off. Have used torx head to remove 2 bottom screws but can't remove plate. Don't know what I'd do if I got it off. Any suggestions?

Like what was posted before, the cause of the iron lights is on but the heaters are not hot is because either your heater connection is melted or rusted due to water seepage(steam irons). The lights power supply are tapped parallel to the heater supply thus lights is on. Solution is to dismantle the iron to replace the connectors or cables. Though not all iron is easy to dismantle

I have a Rowenta "Focus" DZ5080 with the same problem. While ironing last night, I noticed the smell of burning plastic. I turned the iron off and unplugged it. After it cooled down, I plugged it back in, but it remained cold. I removed the bottom sole plate and noticed a black control wire had some of its insulation partially melted. It had gotten so hot that it melted a small section of insulation on an adjacent red wire. These wires go into what looks like a solid-state module. It's too complex for me to fix, so I'm mailing my iron to the Rowenta repair depot in Illinois.

Iron won't come on or heat


Hi
The problem could be the power cord or the element.
Try replacing the power cord first and see what happens.

My Rowenta iron was working fine the last time I used it. I plugged it in to use it today and nothing. The little red light on top comes on but the light on the side to let me know it is ready and hot...


Yes there is a solution, I have a DG580 with the same problem. I had to replace the electric cord which cost $17.00 and took 30 min to replace and now works like brand new.

Switch light goes on when pressed but goes off if not pressed


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

TO CLEAN THE BOTTOM OF THE IRON, MY NAN USED TO ALWAYS IRON BROWN PAPER, IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, USE A RAG DIPPED IN THINNERS, OR LIGHTER PETROL AND RUB GENTLY.

NORMALLY THE SELF CLEAN SYSTEM IS JUST A BUTTON NEAR OR ON THE TANK THAT YOU PRESS WHILE THE IRON IS ON AND HAS WATER IN, PRESSING THE BUTTON WILL FORCE WATER THROUGH THE STEAM JETS (SO KEEP IRON FACING DOWN) ALSO EMPTY THE IRON AFTER EVERY USE
