Question about Irons
How to turn off or get iron going when auto shut off comes on?
The automatic shut off is a protective device to let the iron cool down when not in use. Normally, if you pick the iron up and sit it down on the board or fabric, the iron will "sense" the motion and click back on to the heating cycle. To turn the iron off, just move the dial to the lowest position, or OFF and or unplug it from the outlet. If left unattended for a while, and when picking it back up to iron, if it does not come back on then you may need to increase the heat setting, move the dial a little, till you see the power light come back on. This is a safety item, and a good one, given the hectic lifestyles we have now, and having busy lives. If we forget to shut the iron off, it does it for itself after a period of non-use. No more trips to the store or wherever and remembering "I forgot to unplug/turn-off the iron I was using". Still, it's best to unplug and or turn it off when not in use. I prefer unplugging, so that it does not be a "vampire device" drawing even little amounts of current when not in use. And it's safest when unplugged and cool.

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.

First I called Black and Decker. No help there, just a very condescending man on the other end of the phone who finally put me on hold for more than 10 minutes. I hung up, and went to the store where I purchased the iron and without a receipt they listened to the explanation and exchanged it for the exact same new iron. Now THAT'S customer service.

There is a thermal fuse in the iron which blows when overheated. This fuse has to be replaced.
You can probably find one on-line at radioshack.com -- match the temperature rating of the old fuse. It'll have to be crimped in -- if you solder it, the heat will blow it.

SOURCE: Iron goes into "auto shut-off"
The iron has a built in switch that when you lie the iron down flat, it restarts a timer basically is how it works. The switch is not closing resetting the timer. It would be cheaper to buy a new iron, rather than to pay someone to fix that one. Finding the right parts for small appliances is about impossible.

Tips for a great answer:
If you start ironing with it, does it come back on? It usually doesn't take long for auto-shut-off irons to turn themselves off--a few minutes in the upright postion, and about 30 seconds if left sitting in the down position. Once you start the ironing motion, it should come back on.
