According to the manual, you should use regular tap water as long as it is not above 12 grains of hardness. Never use 100% pure distilled water, Rowenta recommends using inexpensive bottled spring water.

I am not getting any steam. There is water in the iron but no steam is coming through on any heat setting.


Sounds like Calcium build up. My Rowenta has a self cleaning button. Does yours? Also always make sure you empty your Rowenta before you store it.

It is sticky and looks like glue.It looks gooey


Hello :

Here I'm going to tell you the basics of cleaning your Rowenta iron :

Things You'll Need:1:Rowenta Soleplate Cleaning Kit
2: Ironing board
3:Clean, dry cloth
4:Two cotton terry cloths, such as washcloths

Now to the cleaning :

1:Pour out any water from the iron. Turn the steam iron on to the "Cotton" setting, which is the one with three dots on the settings dial.

2:Cover an area of the ironing board with a clean, dry cloth. Fold one washcloth or other piece of cotton terry cloth in half and place it onto the cloth on the ironing board.

3:Dispense a 2-inch long daub of cleaning solution onto the terry cloth. Run the heated iron over the cloth directly on the cleaning solution. Move the steam iron in a circular motion over the cleaner on the cloth for a minute or two.

4:Remove the steam iron from the cloth. Carefully wipe any remaining cleaning solution from the soleplate using the second terry cloth.

5:Add water to the steam iron. Turn on the "Steam" or "Burst of Steam" feature. Run the iron over the clean, dry cloth on the ironing board to ensure the cleaning product is entirely gone from the soleplate.

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!

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...

CALCIUM BUILDUP COMING OUT OF THE STEAM HOLES...


Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.
