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!!!!!!

SOURCE: I have a Rowenta 1700

This is a problem with a lot of Rowenta irons. It is the auto shut off that is not working properly and the only way to fix it is to have it disassembled and the switch hardwired to be on whenever the iron it plugged in. It is a thermal metal switch and it just stops working and then the iron will not turn on and the yellow light blinks.

Rowenta Pro Precision won't stop steaming until the tank runs dry.


Rowenta irons have a propensity for leaking. Most users do not add water to the tank but instead use a spritz bottle to dampen the fabric and then use the dry iron.

How to stop leaking


The best solution for this is to pour out the water when you're done with it. The manual suggests that you set the iron to "dry" setting and then open and close the steam control to push out remaining water, all to prevent scaling. (Do this with the iron unplugged)

The plug and wire near the plug on my Rowenta iron gets very hot when I use it


The plug is not making proper contact in the wall socket. Clean the pins with steel wool or pot scourer. Do not use water. If you are using a double adapter remove it as it could be the cause of the poor contact. If the problem persist, try a different wall socket and get a qualified person to fix the faulty wall socket.

I have lost my instructions on how to "self clean"


Straight from the manual:
http://www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf

Fill the iron with tap water to the max mark on the water tank.
Be sure that variable steam lever is set to minimum.
Stand iron on heel and plug in. • Set thermostat to ••• setting.
Once heated, unplug iron.
Hold iron horizontally over the sink with the soleplate pointing away from body.
Move the variable steam lever completely to the right and hold in the self clean position for one minute.



Warning: Doing this will cause steam and hot water to be ejected from the soleplate. Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body.
• Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate.
• Carefully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the soleplate (although this has no effect on glide or performance.)
Warning: Iron and soleplate may still be very hot. Exercise care while wiping.
• Place iron on heel and leave to cool. Before using iron after self cleaning, test steam and burst
of steam on an old towel or cloth than can be discarded.

What is the best way to clean my Rowenta iron.


I always run the DG980 till the steam runs dry, unplug and let cool. Rowenta recommends using clear water ONLY. They even provide a small hose & faucet adaper to flush out the steam tank reservoir.

Since it sounds like you do not have it, the next best thing is to use filtered water (I have a 3 cylinder water filter in the kitchen for drinking water), The tank has a plug on the side which should be removed once unit is cold, tank flushed with filtered water and drained completely and leave the treaded metal plug and trim cover off to air dry completely, as well as the blue tank.

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.

PLEASE RATE !

MY ROWENTA IRONING CORD GETS HOT


This is probably caused by a connection inside the iron which is arcing. Should be disassembled and all connections inspected for heat damage. Repair connections as appropriate.

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...
