Iron does not heat

All suggestions tried but the iron is useless and as I said before, this is my 3rd. Rowenta in 3 yrs. - Do you know of a brand that works as well as a WORKING Rowenta but lasts longer than 12 mos?

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.

    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.

Not worth repairing I'm afraid as not economical unless you can strip it down yourself. The only suggestion I have is to empty it completely and put a SMALL amount of water in while it's upright, let it heat up and see whether it works. A new iron will cost less than repairing the old one!

I have a rowenta iron that leaks a lot of water


Here's a solution . . . Do NOT buy ROWENTA! I've had 3 Rowenta irons. All of them have eventually began to dump water out of the base. . . heck, the Titanic didn't leak as much as a Rowenta iron!

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????

MY rowenta Iron wont produce steam. IT heats up


Sounds like the Steam control valve is blocked or not opening. try cleaning the iron with a kit from wallmart or similar store. Failing that :It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.
