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: 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.

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.

SOURCE: My Iron keeps turning off while I'm ironing

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.

SOURCE: Iron shut off; will not go back on

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.

I was given a Rowenta Effective with no instruction booklet and I can't get it to work properly. When I turn it on it gets hot but soon after that bottom light goes out and the auto off light blinks


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.

Shark g1468 auto shut off (iron won't come/stay on)


First let me say I HATE AUTO SHUT OFF!!! It sounds like it has wore out. the computer part that tells it when to shut off it not working. It would be cheaper to buy a new one vs fixing yours. If I were you, find an older iron that has LOTS of steam vents and NO AUTO SHUTOFF at your local goodwill, thrift store or garage sale.

Iron with auto shut off will not restart, why?


The thermostat is the problem, I used aew3656's solution posted elsewhere, and took care of the same problem on my steamer, just take out the damaged thermostat and use it as a sample to get a new one from any electronics supply store, BTW dont forget to buy thermal grease, it helps dissipate the heat so your steamer won't overheat, and the thermostat wont't go off every 2mins.

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

The cord on my professional Luxe has a short near the handle.


Take your iron to a hardware store and they should be able to guide you to the tool that you will need.
