Hi,
The thermostats gone.
try using it on very cool temprature setting.
See if it lasts longer.
Not worth the trouble of replacing a thermostat.
I,d buy a new Iron.

SOURCE: I have a Rowenta 1700

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.

SOURCE: Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta

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.

SOURCE: Rowenta iron will heat up and then shut down. Have

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.

Rowenta iron Model DX8906 is shutting off in the middle of ironing. I remove the plug from the outlet, wait a couple of minutes, plug it back in and it works for a while. Then process begins anew.


sounds like it could be a thermal breaker to protect the iron from overheating, might be a thermastat problem or a broken element shorting unfortunately there are a few things that could cause your problem

My Rowenta iron will only heat when plugged into one specific outlet (other things work in the outlets that the iron "doesn't like"), and sometimes it will only heat if you giggle the cord around a bit in...


Hi,
Sounds like the plug and/or the cord are bad...

Here is a tip that will help you to troubleshoot your iron and figure out what is wrong with it.

Iron only stays hot enough to iron for about 2 minutes. The red light blinks except for that time.


I suggest contacting Rowenta; if you check here at FixYa, you'll find a spectrum of problems with what should be a simple, reliable device. Several instances of the iron not turning off at all until the plug is pulled from the wall, several others that fail to turn on at all. This once was a good company and it wouldn't surprise me to find that they are now made in . . . China.

Rowenta precision iron DM 561 will not heat up


Most irons for which you pay more than $10 (like this nice Rowenta) will have a replaceable heating element. The problem seems to be to try to find where you can get the heating element. My best bet would be for you to contact a Rowenta service center (see listing at http://tinyurl.com/danr9x). They should be able to tell you where you can get the heating element.

Before you go that route, I am assuming you already plugged the iron directly into the outlet in the wall (not in the surge strip)? Wouldn't be the first time a single outlet of a power strip goes bad.

Good Luck,

Steam from rowenta preassure iron and steamer


Hi, It is likely you have too much residual water in the iron or have mineral deposits from the tap water you have been using. Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water. I shut the power off and unplug. Wait at least an hour or so, access the boiler tank plug on side & if it is cool to the touch, remove it using a coin (quarter), drain and flush the tank several times with the cleaning tube that came with unit or filtered/drinking bottled water several times over the kitchen sink. Finally, drain all the water completely out of the boiler (I leave the plug & cover off to making sure it is completely dry before putting everything back together, ready for the next time). After several use cycles of the above should clear out the debris. My 1st experience with a used DG980 had exactly the same problem. P.S. before ironing the first article, use several bursts of steam away from the ironing board surface to clear out any standing water that was is in the system. Hope this helps :O)

Auto shut off on/ wiill not heat


Hi! Ensure that the unit is tightly plugged into a working outlet.
Some units are equipped with our patented Motion Smart Auto Off technology. Moving the iron will cause it to begin to reheat.

Light comes on, but iron will not heat up


Like what was posted before, the cause of the iron lights is on but the heaters are not hot is because either your heater connection is melted or rusted due to water seepage(steam irons). The lights power supply are tapped parallel to the heater supply thus lights is on. Solution is to dismantle the iron to replace the connectors or cables. Though not all iron is easy to dismantle
