Question about Rowenta DZ1700 Iron

Open Question

My Rowenta DZ1700 Iron does not heat up anymore when plugged in. This happened after I had left it on long enough for the auto shutoff to kick in. Any suggestions?

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.

SOURCE: Rowenta DM880 Auto shutoff - Shuts off too frequently

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.

SOURCE: I have a Rowenta DX1700. The iron will only stay

The problem is with the iron's thermostat which controls the temperature of the iron

Iron only stays hot enough to iron for about 2 minutes. The red light blinks except for that time.


I suggest contacting Rowenta; if you check here at FixYa, you'll find a spectrum of problems with what should be a simple, reliable device. Several instances of the iron not turning off at all until the plug is pulled from the wall, several others that fail to turn on at all. This once was a good company and it wouldn't surprise me to find that they are now made in . . . China.

Red light keeps blinking and iron shuts off


Sounds as if the cable may be damaged or a loose connection. May be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

When plugged in iron will not "turn on." If shaken it will sometimes turn on then shut off again. Appears to be an auto shut-off problem.


Could also be a break in the supply cable inside the cable guide

The cable moves during ironing and as the cable guide is fairly rigid , the inner cable gets stressed and snaps

Try waggling the cable instead of shaking the iron

I have a Rowenta 1700 iron. The iron has started to act up. When I plug the iron in it just flashes & does not get hot. It is like it is in the stand by mode when you leave it on & don't iron...

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.
