Could be heating element or power cord, if needing more assistance let me know...easy fix if you know electronics

Irons take a lot of electricity to run, if the cord is damaged, you should not use it and you may not be able to get another cord for it. IT would be better to buy a whole new one.

Yes, but not warranty covered.
Check your local yellow pages (yes, printed book) for an apliance repair shop (look for discount coupon in back while you are at it).
Does not have to be an "authorized" Rowenta shop ($20). Get an 8 foot cord if you think you need a longer cord.

The dog can be fixed, too: (I couldn't resist typing that) Wipe some "training spray (pet shop or WalMart $5)" (harmless to dog & environment) onto the new cord (NOT ON THE DOG) to train the dog to leave it alone.

It has an anti tip built in.Try to shake it while it is in a horizontal position and it should reset and come back on.

Always use distilled H2O to avoid build up of calcium/lime deposits. That's for ANY iron.

Chances of causing that not to turn on are: a open defective wire, loose wiring terminal connection, a open heater or the dial switch itself.
Check all of that, you need a continuity tester to do that. If you don't have, ask someone who has knowledge on appliance repair or call a service technician.
Thanks for asking.

the soleplate on my iron is loose. How can I reattach it at the tip end?

Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.

Brown water and white scale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...

If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...

For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,

and then use the bottled water instead...
