I have a rowenta proffesional luxe iron but the cable keeps turning it off so when i move the cable it goes back on and when i am ironing it shuts off

you have a open circuit that occurs due to a wire loose at the plug end or a loose connection within the iron. a break in the cable will also display the systems you discribe. check for loose connections before you decide to replace the cable. by keeping the cable stationery when the iron is on at the plug end check wether it switches off when you move the cable near the plug end.if it switches off the loose wire is in the plug if it does not the try the moving the cable nearer the Iron end.

The iron turns itself off while I'm ironing. Whats the problem?

I noticed the same problem my friend. The problem with mine was that the wire was having some kind of partial contact at the end inside the iron. The wire was twisted and tangled. I will advice You to
  1. Unscrew the iron from the compartment at the back of the iron,
  2. Then You force up the control of the iron,
  3. You will see 2 screws side by side, unscrew them open to release the lower part of the iron,
  4. Tail the wire to part that it is connected to in the iron,
  5. Then you unscrew the screws that hold the wire and disconnect it from the iron, then you Cut the rough edge of the wire or you can replace the wire completely,
  6. Reverse the process to reassemble the iron back together.
Also another cause might be that the connection to the power socket is loose and disconnects itself while you are ironing. In that case, it is the socket you are to replace.
Some irons are also made that way, that once it gets too hot and is not being controlled, the power will cut off its power supply by itself.
That should do the job for you. Hope this information was helpful.

How to open to get water inside

No need to open iron! You just unplug the iron. Hold the iron upright. Using a clean cup, pour water into the "open" WATER FILL HOLES just above or in front of the Temp. Select Dial. Watch the water window on the left. When water level reaches MAX, you are filled. Plug in and use. Refill as needed. Ref. - Page 8 in the instruction pamphlet.

Cord is loose inside, strange screws prevent opening iron to tighten cords - B&D will not help if not under warranty

if the screws have a design on top , like 2 half pyramids, then they are dealer screws, so that the consumer cannot open the appliance.....if they are like introverted star shape, then these are called torx screws, can be removed by ordinary torx-bit screw driver, available at most hardware stores....

Plug heating up

Check the power on the label of the iron, usually 1kw or 1200W
Next open the plug, if it has a screw. The fuse inside the plug may be too low should be 13 Amps for an iron of 1KW

Check also whether there is a loose wire in the plug.

If not the take to an electrical repairer for a quote

Autoshut off red light keeps flashing

I had the same problem and eventually removed the tilt sensor. This is the molded board that you see when you open the back of the iron. By removing it, you will also loose the timer off function. The thermostat will still be operational.
