    I deduct from your reply that there is a problem with the thermostat, since the iron does warm up to the touch but doesn't get hot. If the problem is the thermostat, is there a way for me to adjust it or will I need to get it serviced? I removed the base and all wires appear connected.

Hi, you need to check that power is getting to the heating element. For the power to get to the heating elements of the iron it needs to go through the power switch and the thermostat. On some irons the power switch will be included in the iron thermostat and on others the on/off switch will be a separate switch. In either case you will need to make sure that there is continuity, or the ability for the power to flow through the switch and thermostat to get to the heating part of the iron. The thermostat is just an on/off switch that works on the temperature of the base of the iron. So whenever the iron is cold the thermostat should be closed, allowing the power to flow through it.

If power is getting to the heating element of the iron, then it should get hot. If it is not, then the heating part has failed. Sometimes, when this happens it will short out and cause the fuse to blow or the circuit breaker to trip. Many times though, the element will just simply burn out or break so that the circuit is open and the electricity cannot flow through to make the element produce heat.

    Hi, if you are lucky it can be serviced but in most cases, thermostats are replaced...

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.

Heat goes off and red light blinks

Contact Rowenta if the yellow and red LED lights start to blink; this indicates an internal electrical failure.

Its better to be safe than sorry.

Lights come on but it don't heat up..

Sounds like a defective thermofuse. Rowenta doesn't encourage anyone to repair their product except their authorized service centers. Parts are not made available. Go to to find the nearest service center and call them.

My DZ9080 does not heat up. The lights come on.

If it does not heat up but lights is on, the reason being is the connection to the heaters is open or disconnected. It might be due to rust(water seepage) or overheat issues. Why the light is still on, its because the tap the supply to the led before the connections to the heaters. Try dismantling it to check the connection but most irons now is difficult to dismanlte without breaking something
