Question about Rowenta DX6700 Iron

1 Answer

Rowenta iron Hello! My iron doesn't want to turn on when I want to iron. I think it has something to do with the automatic on and off mechanism. If I shake it or turn it upside down, it will start, but then I have to be real careful about positioning it right so that it doesn't go off. My husband is a real handy guy and probably could fix it, but he says that it takes a special kind of tool to take it apart. Any ideas? I would just as soon not spend the $$ on a new one if I can help it! AM

My Rowenta pro precision iron steam station gets hot but doesn't steam. How do I get the iron to produce steam?

There are two cause. One the boiler resistance doesn´t turn of because of snap disc or bimetal thermostat fault or because a coil in the working valve (security valve). But if you can heard a click of opening movement of valve when you push the button it is able to be a thermostat.

Rowenta Iron doesn't heat up and the Auto-off lamps remains lit. Any clues? Is it the small PC card in the handle? Thanks, Rudy

The problem would be the contact points and setting of the heater! u have to open the iron and check, adjust, and clean the bi-metal thermostat or the heater core!

IRon heats standing but the light goes out when I set it horizontal to iron a garment. I think the cord is needing replacement but need advice.

If the iron is not moved while it is plugged
in, an internal safety switch will turn it off.
- It will turn off in 8 minutes if left vertically or
in 30 seconds if left on its soleplate or tipped
over. A red flashing light indicates that the
auto-off has been activated.

The above information is from the Rowenta DX1700 Owner's Manual. I think most, if not all Rowenta irons have the "auto off" safety feature. If your iron is going off before the 30 seconds idle time, the sensor may be defective. If you are letting it sit on the sole plate longer than 30 seconds, you may just need to work faster. ;-)

I plug the iron in , 5 minutes later it turns off ! Is that a auto shut-off problem or something else

The iron has an auto shut off of usually 8 minutes. The iron will automatically turn on if you move the iron. If this does not answer your concern, let me know and we can look for a solution. Thanks.

Rowenta Iron Problems

Rowenta has an auto shutoff feature if the iron is not used for awhile. They use multi-point security Torx head screws that require the appropriate set of bits/driver kit that may be obtained at your local Kragen's or Harbor Freight tools to access the position/timer switch mechanism. Open it carefully so you can see if the switch is somehow mechanically mispositioned or sticking. You may also want to store the iron, cool and reservoir empty in the normal upright position.
