New rowenta effective iron that doesn't heat and steam correctly

My new rowenta effective iron is not working as it should. It doesn't heat when a light on the side is not on. My book says this light is a water indicator but I think it is a sensor of some kind. I have shaken iron , added water turned fabric dial up pluged and repluged to get it on. It has taken me as long as 5 miniutes to get it on. I don.t like it at all.

    After plugging in the iron and turning on the steamer, it doesn't seem to heat and water leaks from the bottom of the iron. The iron is not cold to the touch but you can place your hand on it for a long time without it burning you. The red indicator light is on so I know that power is getting to it.

    The iron will not turn on.  It is warm to touch, but does not get hot.  I left it on and I think it turned off and will now NOT go back on but honestly, I do not know if it heated to begin with.  Thank you.

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.

No steam is coming out i think it needs cleaning

Some irons like Rowenta have a self cleaning feature. If yours doesn't make a solution of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water and put it in your iron. Plug it in and allow it to heat that up. keep working your instant steam button for a while. Hopefully the vinegar will help remove the calcium build up and let it work.

MY rowenta Iron wont produce steam. IT heats up

Sounds like the Steam control valve is blocked or not opening. try cleaning the iron with a kit from wallmart or similar store. Failing that :It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

My rowenta effective will not heat up.

This is a problem with a lot of Rowenta irons. It is the auto shut off that is not working properly and the only way to fix it is to have it disassembled and the switch hardwired to be on whenever the iron it plugged in. It is a thermal metal switch and it just stops working and then the iron will not turn on and the yellow light blinks.
