Question about Rowenta Steam Generator DG050 Iron

1 Answer

Rowenta Powerglide 2 INOX vertical steam, no steam, just water leakage

When I fill the water tank (to the fill line), it bubbles out the top and leaks out of the handle of the iron, the handle and the water is very hot. This just started happening all of a sudden. I have had this iron for 7 years now. Is it repairable, worth repairing or do I need to replace it.

Replace the o-ring gasket on the tank fill cap. It is a simple neoprene "O" ring you can buy at your local hardware or NAPA aauto parts store for less than $3.00.

You need to follow the instructions for the iron. Rowenta make a excellent iron but it's water tank and steam chamber need to be cleaned and rinsed out, say every third use depending on how much you use it. Also, allow the iron to reach FULL TEMPRATURE before you use it.

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:

Rowenta Steam Iron Leak


I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.

Spray not working.I fear it's clogged.


Hi,

The pump is faulty and the selector is to select amount of steam coming out from the sole plate.I, suggest you send to your nearest repair centre.
