Question about Rowenta Irons
Inside the iron is a piece of thermal metal the is supposed to make contact with a small ceramic pin with a metal cap on it. I think this was intended to be a safety device but they fail and the iron will not heat up. The part does not seem to be available so easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing that forces this to make contact.

Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

you either need to press a small button on the protection to reactivate it, or buy a new one and replace it. But first check the thermostat, since there is a reason for all this. Check also the heating element with an ohmmeter.

Irons use a potentiometer and thermister to control the heat on the element. One of these components is bad and needs replacing. If the iron's still under warranty, get another one. The cost of service would probably be as much as a new iron, but you could call an appliance repair shop to check.
