Re: Problem

There is most likely something wrong with the heating element you need to take it apart to find out what is going on with the unit. you could alternatively try to turn the dial up and down to see if you can maybe get it to work for the time being.

option 1 - take it back to the store you bought it at and get a new one
option 2 - call rowenta and see if it is still covered by warranty
option 3 - take it to a small appliance shop <-- not much of an option it seems like

hope that helps.

Hi Ihave a Bosch B25L steam generator iron and it has stopped steaming completely. Any ideas?

Yousaf/Tony, Either the switch is defective or the heat element has gone bad, probably not cost effective to repair.

Heat element light comes on (so there is power) but the iron will not hear up

The Delonghi Pro300 has two thermostats that contact the boiler. One is a low temperature thermostat that allows the boiler to heat up to 145 degrees (F). The other turns off the boiler when the temperature reaches 180 degrees. It sounds like your low temperature thermostat has failed. The part can be ordered on line. You need to have good basic mechanical skills and the proper sized star screwdriver to replace it.

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

Why isn't my Iron heating up? Just finished filling my Krups V65 iron with water. Was ironing linen shirt on linen setting, all of a sudden, heat dropped all the way down to light one (very low heat) and...

I do believe the thermostat is defective.All the iron have a small thermastat top control the temperature and is working like a switch.If the switch don`t work get stuck on the same position.Unfortunatly sometimes is better get a new one themn fix an old one but this is The Market and nothing i can do personally.Also make sure the thermostat knob is working properly.If you hear a click when you turn is ok.
Good Luck

Its gone off!

The green light indicates the unit thinks it is out of water. Take of rewervoir; make sure the inlets are not plugged. Open the little plug on side, clean tank w/ clear water only, and shake out all water completely. Put it all back together, but leave reservoir off. Turn on and run unit "dry". Your should hear a "flutter" sound as the unit trys to pump water from missing reservoir, the heater/steamer should be sizzling hot & pressurizing. THEN the green light if ome ON, asking you to switch it off, refill & install the water reservoir. If things don't happen in that sequence, you should be able to determine what is wrong.
