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.

It sounds like a break in the wire, re-wire plug and take about a inch of length off the cable. if the fault is on the iron side it will need taking to a repair shop.

SOURCE: which colored wires bypass the
The component that will most likely turn off the iron will be a thermister- usually a round, coin-shaped device that opens up when the iron gets to a certain temperature. This is the part you should jumper if you want to disable this function.
If you can't locate it easily, we can only take an educated guess at the wiring, without the schematic diagram to identify them. We can assume red to be the hot wire, black to be the ground, and blue could be the output of the thermister. Without seeing it, I can't be sure.
If you're going to jumper any of the wires, you can try to jumper red to blue, or blue to black, but NOT red to black Any of these combinations coud result in the breaker tripping, so use caution and don't contact the device while powering it up.
Very few people work on irons, since they're generally considered to be "throwaway" items, but someone may be able to give you a more definitive answer.
Good luck, though, and hope this helps.
