SOURCE: Repair of Steam Iron
Hi, honestly if there is a short circuit to ground and you are trying to troubleshoot this, I would not advise you doing this (I do electronic tech/engineering everyday) and am uncomfortable doing it, as it is a shock hazard to continue using the device, especially if significant others are using the appliance. Unless I am SURE I can fix the problem AND I know how to test for circuit isolation as recommended by UL, CE and other safety governing bodies...i.e. "Know about HI POT and Leakage Testing techniques."
That said, since you have already dismantled and accessed the "guts", there is probably a fastener or moulded retainer you missed. Probably a good idea to try and locate a schematic or reverse engineer it, making sure you draw lots of assembly and disassembly diagrams as you go if you are so inclined

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.

More complete answer...
If you are having steam problems then the cartridge needs changing.
I phoned them (0161 652 1211) and they do sell the cartridge for £5.99 including delivery but are out of stock for a couple of weeks. You have to send them a cheque or postal orders. Good luck.
Send Cheque for £5.99 for each cartridge with note of model etc.

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.
