Question about Rowenta Effective DX1700 Iron with Auto Shut-off

1 Answer

My Rowenta Effective DX1700 is less than a year old and the 'auto-on' for steam will not stay in locked position. How do I clean the iron? It won't stay in the 'clean' locked position either.

We have a Rowenta iron effective model DX1700, less than a year old. It will not heat. Is there an iron made that will give satisfactory service for more than a year? Are they repairable?


If the cord and plug are ok (the wires in the cord often break just at the cord protector at the iron) the most likely other problems will be the thermal fuse(s) or the element. Thermal fuses can be replaced but if the element is gone that is unfortunately that. Take the back cover off and check for continuity from the plug to the inside connections using a test light or multimeter (the iron is of course unplugged).

Iron No Longer Heats Up


Recommended solution, gently shake, did not work.

Considering the iron was at a minimum two years old, I decided to purchase another Rowenta. I found the recommended solution documented on a FAQ sheet enclosed with the new iron.

I actually own another Rowenta iron (I now have three) that has the same issue. I will send one iron, the one manufactured in Germany, to a Rowenta Service Center to see if can be repaired - it was the first Rowenta iron I purchased and it provided several good years of service.

Not heating


The thermal cutoff device blew and must be replaced. It acts like a fuse when the iron gets too hot. Thay are very
cheap and it would be well worth replacing. Hope this was helpful.
