Question about Rowenta Power Duo Iron

Iron leaks water from the back end of the base

My Rowenta Power Duo leaks water from the back end of the base on one corner. It has been a problem almost from the beginning of use.
I also bought a less expensive Rowenta for my daughter and it also leaks.
I am very disappointed with the product.

This problem is the way that rowenta seals the water tank. If the iron is disassembled and the seal is properly put on it will not leak,, however this seal is a silicone based product and not just an off the shelf gasket. I have sealed and repaired some using a high temp silicone

Rowenta Iron leaking out of bottom and leaks on clothes


I have one of these and have been battling the leak problem for years. I'm a stubborn mechanical engineer and I'm bound and determined to fix this, when in fact I should just buy another, different, iron.

The problem is then 'handle'. Built into the handle is the water tank. The water tank is made from two pieces which are then glued and screwed together. Think of taking a coke bottle, cutting it in half, and then gluing it back together. Now you see where the problem comes in... the glue they use isn't up to the task, or the heat... or the pressure... is causing the tank to leak somewhere / everywhere.

I have disassembled this several times, meticulously scraped out the old silicone, and tried several different types of silicone to re-seal. So far it always fails. It's good for a while, but maybe a couple months, before it starts leaking again.

Conclusion... BAD DESIGN. Very disappointing, because in every other respect I like this iron better than any I've ever owned.

I have a rowenta iron, and began to iron a tablecloth with gold embossing. Now it is stuck on the plate. How do I clean it?


Turn the iron back on, get a sheet of wax paper, iron back and forth on the wax paper it cleans all of the gold and grime off. Then take a Magic Eraser and clean the plate after it has cooled. Won't scratch your plate. Hope this works for you. I have done it often.

I have a rowenta iron that leaks a lot of water


Here's a solution . . . Do NOT buy ROWENTA! I've had 3 Rowenta irons. All of them have eventually began to dump water out of the base. . . heck, the Titanic didn't leak as much as a Rowenta iron!
