My wife has used these since they were made by Sunbeam. The majority of the times they failed it was the cord broken inside the black insulation right behind the plug. If you can get access to a continuity tester or an ohm meter (part of all multimeters) just set the meter on ohms or continuity, connect the red lead to one prong on the plug and the black lead to the other prong. If the meter doesn't read any resistance, hold the plug still and move the wire around behind it. If that results in intermittent continuity readings there is where the break is. If there is a reading on the first try, move the temperature selector to the OFF position and the reading should disappear. As you move across the range of temperatures, the resistance reading should climb. If it does not, the thermostat is bad.

SOURCE: Light comes on, but iron will not heat up

No electricity is getting to the heating coil inside the iron. It has to be disassembled to find out if the heating coils are broken, or just not connected properly.

SOURCE: Why isn't my Iron heating up?

I do believe the thermostat is defective.All the iron have a small thermastat top control the temperature and is working like a switch.If the switch don`t work get stuck on the same position.Unfortunatly sometimes is better get a new one themn fix an old one but this is The Market and nothing i can do personally.Also make sure the thermostat knob is working properly.If you hear a click when you turn is ok.
Good Luck

My iron does not heat up


The most likely cause is a faulty temperature sensor. The Iron is most likely shutting itself off because it believes that it is already at the correct heat. The less likely scenario would be a faulty heating element. In either case you will not be able to fix this yourself.
Check that the Iron is correctly plugged into a working outlet as that often tends to be the solution we all miss.

My Rowenta iron will only heat when plugged into one specific outlet (other things work in the outlets that the iron "doesn't like"), and sometimes it will only heat if you giggle the cord around a bit in...


Hi,
Sounds like the plug and/or the cord are bad...

Rowenta precision iron DM 561 will not heat up


Most irons for which you pay more than $10 (like this nice Rowenta) will have a replaceable heating element. The problem seems to be to try to find where you can get the heating element. My best bet would be for you to contact a Rowenta service center (see listing at http://tinyurl.com/danr9x). They should be able to tell you where you can get the heating element.

Before you go that route, I am assuming you already plugged the iron directly into the outlet in the wall (not in the surge strip)? Wouldn't be the first time a single outlet of a power strip goes bad.

Good Luck,
