    Remove the two screws on the back of the ironing, for these you will need a special tamper resistance screw driver, or do what I did, use a very fine needle nose pliers and unscrew both, remove the gray translucent cover and pull the white cover from the top (close to the power cord) as soon as you remove it you will have access to the wiring, notice that from the two leads, one is tied up to one black wire and the other to two white wires, cut the wires as close as you can to the wire nut and remove the cord, the you have to options, get a new cord installed or cut 3 to 5 inches of cord and reconnect.

Iron heating sporadically and sensor lights working sporadically


sounds like a loose connection in the power transfer, some piece of metal may be broken or the cord itself may be damaged in some place, you could try replacing the cord. I would just go and buy a new iron. They aren't all that expensive anymore. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I hope you solve your problem. If you want any further help or have any other questions, please let me know, otherwise have a Good Day.

How do you turn this iron on/off. I can't seem to find the on/off button.


There is no on-off button. It turns itself off after 8 minutes of not being moved, or if it is tipped over. It comes back on once it is moved.

Auto shut off how to turn back 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.

DM865 Rowenta Steam Iron auto-off indicator light goes off and on depending on which way the cord is turned or rotated or moved - dosen't seem to stay on.


It sounds like a break in the wire, re-wire plug and take about a inch of length off the cable. if the fault is on the iron side it will need taking to a repair shop.

My Rowenta Professional will not come on.


Yes, there is a broken wire inside of the cord. This is a potentially dangerous situation for you as it could result in a deadly shock or a fire. The cord can be replaced for about $25.00 at a repair shop. Therefore, it may be more logical to trash this iron and get a new one.

Either way, good luck.

Power won't come on


You have a short in the cord. If you knew where the short was, you could possibly repair it. However, I would strongly suggest buying a new iron. An iron is an appliance that can burn your house down even when it's in GOOD working order. You should be able to buy a decent iron for around $30, and I would say the peace of mind alone would be worth it. Hope this helps,
Chad
