Just a few months old and stopped steaming, steams frowater entry
Where do I take this expensive iron to be repaired, or how can I do it myself. Less than 6 months old and stopped steaming. Water runs out of entry. Model # DZ9080. Instructions tell you not to use a cleaner. Only spring water used in steaming.
Re: just a few months old and stopped steaming, steams...
I have taken one of these completely apart and found it is glued together except for the platinum plate on the bottom. It is held on by circular lock clips and will break w/o proper tool. I see no way to repair these and the cost of sending in will probably be as expensive as a new one. I have seen them at Lowes and TuesdayMorning for about $100.00. Have tried to get a repair manual from Rowenta-good luck!

Once you have descaled the boiler and refilled your frontpiece of the iron itself (hopefully with distilled water - any supermarket) you press the "reset"/ "restart" button on the back end of the steam generating unit. When the water is hot enough press steam button & turbo button a few times - WARNING: make sure iron is facing downwards and cover ironing board with old rag because initially brown steam splatter will come out on first few steam releases.
Have a look at the steam holes in the bottom, they should be nice an clean with no blockage. If they are blocked up you will need to remove the calcium buildup inside the iron. Get some LimeAway at HDepot, pour it into the water reservoir, let sit overnight. Next day turn the iron on and try steaming on some old papers covered with an old rag or towel, once it starts working steam for a few minutes, then unplug, drain it, put in clean distilled water and flush it out until the steam comes out clear. Use distilled water not tap water, it has much less mineral content and will be less likely to plug it up. Most pharmacies and Walmart sell distilled water. ! gallon about $1.25.
Try putting in some LimeAway (Home Depot carries it) and let it sit overnight. Then turn it on to steam and press the steam button to get the steam through the bottom holes etc. Do this on top of some old rags. Then do it again with just water to clear out the LimeAway, should get most of the calcium out. One tip use distilled water in it instead of tap water, you'll get much less buildup. Get distilled water at any retailer about $1 per gallon.
Sounds like there was water in the line when it was stored, which caused deposits to bild up in the line and not work without pressure. Hence having to press the button to get steam out.
Try loading it full with really hot water and a small amount of bleach. Steam all of the water out of it into the air. Clean out the resevoir with fresh water after it has cooled and try again.
