I've got one of those and occasionally it doesn't heat up. So far I've found that the problem has been with the cartridge, or the connection to the cartridge. Turn off the PSU and try rotating the cartridge in the hand piece a bit to clean the contacts before turning on again, if you have another cartridge try that.

Be careful, those power supplies had issues with the varnish on the transformer windings going bad over time.  Hopefully that's not your intermittent problem.

Otherwise what unclebob says is pretty common as the source of the issue.

Hi

I have this type of Iron for almost 14 years...(cost lot of money at the time)
Most of the problems came from the cartridge (iron head) try replacing the cartridge
I use to have schematic of this Iron somewhere - I will try to find it and upload - no promise
All the best
