Question about Rowenta Irons

1 Answer

I have a Rowenta Pro. Iron, model DE-86.1A with auto shut-off. It sticks on auto shut-off. I have to move it around for it to heat up, as indicated by the sensor light on the top.

    No, it used to heat up on it's own and then shut off if left for too long. Now, it will not heat up unless I hold it at an odd angle, and even then it will click back off. All this is indicated by the sensor light on the top of the handle. RED means the iron is on and YELLOW means the iron is heating. The heating stops before reaching the desired temp.

    I've had it for years. Loved it but no more warranty. :(
    Thank you for your help!

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.

    thanks for more info

    it looks like there is a problem with the timer circuit, really not much you can do here, if it still has warranty return it for warranty. If you have a friend who is an electrican, ask him to take a look for any obvious, else it will be cheaper buying a new iron.

Rowenta d1700 red flashes and iron shuts off


I am on my 3rd or 4th Rowenta. I recently bought the Rowenta Effective, Model DX 1700. Once again, I am having the same problem as before, it shuts off after about 30 seconds. From what I am reading, many people are having the same problem. I'm going to have to guess, this is a product defect. Do I contact the company for a refund????

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.

Rowenta iron manual needed


If you dropped it it will probably be an easy fix. Just openup the unit and look for a crack in the cicuit board. This is the case 99 percent of the time in apliance drops. If you find a crack in a board simply epoxy it and on the cicuit side of the board solder jumper wires from point a to point b when you follow the boken trace(s). If more than one trace is broken repeat the process until all the circuits can be repaired. Make sure you use wire of a high enough rating to handle the current the trace handles, and also use wire with heat resistant insulation in this application.
First things first though. Just open it up and have a look. The plug to the heating element may have just been knocked off. With a little trouble shooting skills and a good look you should be able to see your problem. If you get it open and see something I did not tell you how to fix just post any question you have and I will answer them for you.

Rowenta DE-09 will not turn on. Plug it in and nothing happens. Is a fuse blown or some problem similar to that happening? Thanks

Auto shut off on/ wiill not heat


Hi! Ensure that the unit is tightly plugged into a working outlet.
Some units are equipped with our patented Motion Smart Auto Off technology. Moving the iron will cause it to begin to reheat.
