The thermostat in the iron controls the temperature of the iron. The red light indicates when the power applied to heat the iron which is set by the temperature dial on the iron. When it reaches the correct temperature the thermostat turn off the power and that is when the red light switches off.
your iron has a thermostat fault its this thermostat thats cutting in and out that puts the red light on it could be fixed but that wont be a cheap fix best bet is to buy a new iron as that would work out cheaper
"FF" or a blinking light will display meaning “Fault Found”. The “fault” is in the amount of power available to the blanket, mattress pad or throw.
There are several causes to this problem: 1. Bedding product is plugged into an extension cord, surge protector, power strip, or not plugged into a direct wall outlet. 2. Bedding product wasn't plugged in properly.
To FIX this problem, do the following to reset your bedding product:
1. Unplug the power cord from the electrical connection. 2. Unplug the cord from the actual bedding product itself. 3. Re-plug the cord into the bedding product. Make sure the connection is secure and complete. 4. Re-insert power cord back into a wall outlet.
If the 4 steps above are not followed in order, the bedding product will not properly reset.
Unless you have a 5 or 6 hundred dollar iron, or unless it is brand new, and still under warranty, there is an excellent rule of thumb when an iron quits working: Buy a new one! These days, irons can be purchased cheaply enough that it is WELL worth the money. Not just for the convenience, but for the safety issues. This is an appliance that could burn your house down even if it's in PROPER working order. Hope this helps!!
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.
Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).
These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
