Steam Press sp-660 will not steam with distilled water

The steamer will turn on and will not steam with distilled water. My husband believes the "water pump" probably does not work. Where can I get parts?

My Steam Press (SP-660) the Mercury switch went out. An electrician looked at it to find out the problem. The question is now, how to get a mercury switch since most hardware stores do not carry them any more. Due to certain state regulations.

My press has the same problem. Everything works but the steam. I took it apart and found the circuit board has scorch marks. Now I'm looking for a replacement board PCB:DTJ120

It will not steam. We put in a solution of vinegar and 2 parts water from a pitcher that filters water. Will this be considered distilled water or is distilled water critical?


Distilled water and filtered water are not the same. Distilled water is water that has been boiled then condensed so that most of the impurities that cause water hardness (Sodium, Calcium, etc.) have been removed. Filtering does not remove these which is why your iron will clog up much quicker. Same applies to your car battery, distilled water only! To clean it mix "Lime Away" with water about 1/4 cup with water every 6 months or so, then rinse with clean water a few times to get rid of the green color, steam until it comes out clear again..

I want use distilled water in my new Rowenta DG8030 steam station but instructions say to use 1/2 tap water and 1/2 distilled water or 100% spring water. Why can't I use 100% distilled water? Why can't I...


Believe it or not, distilled water is quite corrosive, more so when hot. Distilled water doesn't contain any dissolved ions but the water is ionic in nature, the ions of every water molecule tend to dissolve away other elements. Steam generating plants and steam ships as well as steam heating systems treat the water with chemicals to keep the water from eating away the metals of the system and test the chemical makeup several times a day while operating. [I spent 4 years in the Navy on a steam powered ship.]
The same holds true for smaller steam appliances like espresso machines and steamers. A very thin coating of calcium carbonate [limestone] is a good protector but too much makes for inefficiencies and burned up elements.
Somewhere I read that Chrystal Geyser spring water is approximately the correct ion balance for espresso machines and I have been using it for years in my espresso machine. In any case you still need to occasionally de-scale your steamer per the manufacturers recommendations.

Floor steamer not getting hot


follow this steps and fix it.
GOD BLESS YOU
Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

Are you using distilled water? May be clogged with chemical residue that shows up by the residential water treatment process if using tap water from your faucet. When tap water evaporates (i.e. steam) it will leave deposits. Try mixing a solution of a small amount white vinegar with water to see if it breaks up. Heat until hot and then turn off. Be sure to 'flush' by pouring out and refilling with fresh distilled water after heating it up and letting it sit a little bit first. If successful only used filtered water from now on.

My rowenta steamer is not producing steam but tubing getting hot when I turn on steamer. Suggestions?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .

If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.

If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.

If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

My steam iron will not steam. How do I clean it?


Mix (1 to 5 parts) white vinegar in distilled water and pour into the reservoir. Let sit for an hour or so, then pour out through a coffee filter into a container, then pour back into the iron for another hour. At this point, heat the iron and try the steamer function. The vinegar solution will clean deposits from the steam jets, so don't try to iron anything yet. Keep running solution through until sputtering stops. Wash out the reservoir with distilled water, then refill and steam wash the ports several times to remove the vinegar. If you can get it clean, continue to use only distilled water in the iron.

The steam on my FP-202L stop working. I believe it may be caluicm buildup, even though I use distill water. How do I clean the caluicm out?


I've heard that Vinegar is the best for water applicances, like steamers, coffee makers, Irons, etc.

Try rinsing it out with vinegar.

Is there a product to run through a rowenta pro garment steamer to eliminate build-up?


To start with, use distilled water for steaming. This will prevent calcium build-up. I buy bottles of distilled water for ironing/steaming only. I have never had calcium build-up from using distilled water for ironing/steaming. Do not use tap water!!!

You can buy some CLR (stands for Cacium, Lime & Rust) (can be found at Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, etc.). You can run this product through your steamer to eliminate build-up.

Good luck!
