I agree.

It is probably a loose screw (if you shake the iron, you may hear it rattle).. The iron is most likely good, just needs a 5 minute repair.

If you want to do it, or find someone to do it:
1. UNPLUG the iron.
2. remove the 4 screws from the back end of the iron.
3. Open the back plastic plate.
4. There will be a wire with a loose screw; tighten it.
5. There may be a broken wire near the screw; if so, remove the eyelet that is on the screw. put the screw back on and wrap the broken wire end onto the screw and tighten.
6. Replace the back plate.
7. Plug back in and use for a few more years.

Hope this helps!

I have two irons. one if them won't turn on anymore and i noticed the light kept fading out. the light on the other one flickers and it stops working halfway through straightening. any solutions?


Most likely it is the power cord. We have the same iron and the power cord has a break in it just as it comes out of the swivel. You can turn it on and hold the power cord tight up against the swivel and it should stay on. I was able to fix it by stripping the cord down to the wire soldering and adding shrink tubing to the connection. That lasted for about 1 year and it has done it again. I may have to replace it but not sure how to take it apart.

Premature shutting off


Have you try with lower heat setting?
It seems like it might be thermostat or thermal fuse that is not working properly.

My iron will not heat when plugged into to the wall socket. Tried different places. Light comes on but won't heat. press to reset light stays on.


try opening the iron and see if the wires are connected to the thermostat/heating element, if not you can easily tie them again, it sometimes happens when the thermostat fails to open the circuit and the heating elements over heat and causes a break in the line or heating element.

Iron won't heat up!!!


A lot of rowenta irons have a safety or auto shutoff built in them that fails. The only way I have found to fix them is to disassemble it and permanently connect the switch then it works fine, just does not auto shut off.

Rowenta Iron problems


inside the iron is a thermal switch that has failed to make contact. Dissassemble the iron and you will see a small white ceramic pin sticking up out of the heating chamber and on tip there is a small contact. Above it is another contact that makes the heating element work. Easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing to force the contacts together.

The light is on...but no heat at all?


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.
