My gravity feed iron won't turn on.


Your brand new iron probably is defective. Funny how no one wants to have anything to do with repair or replace. You may have to get another iron that that works.

The plug and wire near the plug on my Rowenta iron gets very hot when I use it


The plug is not making proper contact in the wall socket. Clean the pins with steel wool or pot scourer. Do not use water. If you are using a double adapter remove it as it could be the cause of the poor contact. If the problem persist, try a different wall socket and get a qualified person to fix the faulty wall socket.

Iron not working no power nolights


check the circuit breaker in the main fuse box in case a breaker has tripped.
check the fuse in the power plug, if it is no good replace it.
Try the iron in another socket /outlet in case the one you are using is faulty.

When I plugged iron in sparks came out at wall and iron where the cord connects.


Hi,

If you've had this iron for a while it sounds like the cord may be frayed.
switch it off at the wall and unplug it, check the cord for wear, if the insulation is frayed, torn or broken and there are black burn marks on the cord where you saw sparks then the cord needs to be replaced.
DONT plug the iron back in until the cord is replaced.

Otherwise If there are no breaks or black burn marks on the cord, then your power point may be faulty and needs to be replaced!

I hope this was helpful

The iron will not turn on. i tryed a different location to plug it in and nothing happens.


Possible that the power cord is faulty if there is no indication at the iron. use a multimeter to check the continuity from the plug to the iron heating coil element.
it is possible that the coil has opened or the thermostat is defective.

My iron will not heat when plugged into to the wall socket. Tried different places. Light comes on but won't heat. press to reset light stays on.


try opening the iron and see if the wires are connected to the thermostat/heating element, if not you can easily tie them again, it sometimes happens when the thermostat fails to open the circuit and the heating elements over heat and causes a break in the line or heating element.

MY Rowenta Superpress 050 iron is not getting hot. Thank you.


The first thing to check is the electric socket outlet the iron is plugged in to.
Plug something in that you know is working o/k ,this will prove whether it is the socket or the iron.
If the socket is o/k then the next thing to check is the plug on the iron.
Undo the plug if it has a removeable cover, and check that the connections are good, and check the fuse if it has one, if you are not sure about the fuse, then change it for one that you know is o/k.
If it is a sealed plug then check the electric cord is not chafed or broken near the plug.

Check the cord at the point where it goes into the iron also.

If you are satisfied that all is o/k then the fault is in the iron.
I do recommend that you proceed no furher, unless you are fully competent with electrics, and know what you are doing.
If you are satisfied that it is faulty.It is usually cheaper to buy a new iron, rather than trying to repair it.
Hope my comments are of help to you.
Cheers.

Will not light and will not heat up


Problems like this assume the iron is at fault. but may not be.

Check the wall socket you are using works with other appliances.

If you use the iron via an extension lead, check that the lead is working by checking with another appliance also.

Take out the fuse in the plug of the iron and put into another appliance to test its working and not fused.

Only if all is well at this point should you bin the iron.

Flat 'hot plate' irons are so cheap nowadays, so bin it and get an new one. The best are steam generator irons with a reservoir of water container attached. Mine cost £30/$60 so spend wisely.

How to use the calc-clean button


Calc-Clean function
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.

To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.

Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.

Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.

When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.

Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary
