Question about Rowenta Irons
Most of the times it works OK, then sometimes it leaks heavily
Posted by Anonymous on
Not a solution, but a word of caution. I have purchased several Rowentas, one more expensive than the previous one; all of them leaked. This time it went beyond a wet ironing board, there were sparks in the water tank near the temperature light. From the comments it seems the fix is GE.

SOURCE: Taking a Rowenta DX1900 Apart
Not sure about your model, but newer irons have the screws hidden under snap-on covers. Look for a small cover that may have a slot where you can insert a small screwdriver and lightly pry. Chances are you'll leave marks. They are not made to take apart so there is also a chance you'll break the internal tabs that snap/hold it together. You may be able to super glue them back. There should be a removable coverplate at, or near each end.

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak
Yes, my rowenta model DX6700 is also leaking from the heal. I bought this iron after having a GE for ten years because I thought it would iron my clothes better. I've had it less than two years. How frustrating!!!!!!

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

my iron is different to yours but i used to have leaks as well.
for me it was because i have a heat setting dial that indicates that the steam function is activated when set to a very high temperature.
i also have a push lever on the top of the iron that controls how much, if any, steam is produced by the iron.
the amount of steam is regulated by letting more or less water through to be vaporised by the heating element.
if the heat setting is low and the steam setting has not been switched off then water is being allowed through but the element is not hot enough to vaporise the water. the result is water pooling and either dribbling through onto the clothing you are ironing or running off when you sit the iron up.
maybe it will help if you turn the steam setting off while the iron is not in use.
