Question about Rowenta Effective DX1700 Iron with Auto Shut-off

1 Answer

I have a Rowenta DX1700. The iron will only stay

I have a Rowenta DX1700. The iron will only stay on about 20-30 seconds and then shuts off. I think it is probably the auto-off feature, but it goes off when I am trying to use it. Iron does heat up, but powers down after 20-30 seconds, light on handle blinks rapidly.

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

IRon heats standing but the light goes out when I set it horizontal to iron a garment. I think the cord is needing replacement but need advice.


If the iron is not moved while it is plugged
in, an internal safety switch will turn it off.
- It will turn off in 8 minutes if left vertically or
in 30 seconds if left on its soleplate or tipped
over. A red flashing light indicates that the
auto-off has been activated.

The above information is from the Rowenta DX1700 Owner's Manual. I think most, if not all Rowenta irons have the "auto off" safety feature. If your iron is going off before the 30 seconds idle time, the sensor may be defective. If you are letting it sit on the sole plate longer than 30 seconds, you may just need to work faster. ;-)

Rowenta d1700 red flashes and iron shuts off


I am on my 3rd or 4th Rowenta. I recently bought the Rowenta Effective, Model DX 1700. Once again, I am having the same problem as before, it shuts off after about 30 seconds. From what I am reading, many people are having the same problem. I'm going to have to guess, this is a product defect. Do I contact the company for a refund????

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.

Iron does not heat


Inside the iron is a piece of thermal metal the is supposed to make contact with a small ceramic pin with a metal cap on it. I think this was intended to be a safety device but they fail and the iron will not heat up. The part does not seem to be available so easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing that forces this to make contact.

Not heating


The thermal cutoff device blew and must be replaced. It acts like a fuse when the iron gets too hot. Thay are very
cheap and it would be well worth replacing. Hope this was helpful.
