Question about Rowenta Commercial Garment Steamer - White
Steamer heats. I can pour water into the boiler from the hose outlet end, and it produces plenty of steam. However, when I try to run the machine normally, no water transfers from the reservoir side to the boiler. I've descaled with vinegar several times- including pouring it into the boiler side through the hose outlet opening.
I am getting ready to take this apart (costs too much to ship to repair site and then pay for repair and ship back). Will I find a check valve, or is this a simply gravity feed where the liquid in the boiler chokes off the feed until enough steam escapes that the pressure drops and allows in more water? (I.e. is this an open path?) If it is an open path, I'll ge3t a long pipe cleaner or wire and open the path. But, if there's a check valve in there, I don't want to damage it this way. Rowenta Cust Support would not tell me the answer to what is in the liquid path.
Can someone help me understand the liquid path design, so I know what to expect? I hate to take this apart if I don't have to-- I've got plenty of other things I'd rather do with my time!

Can you remove the steam button if you can fill with water heat to maximum and holding over sink remove steam button rod this will clean the steam traks but be careful this gets very hot.

I am not sure what the problem is, but Rowenta recommends that you use only clear or filtered drinking water only. Make sure to remove the reservoir and use the burst of steam to empty it out completely. When cool, access the steamer drain hole and fill and flush the tank over the kitchen sink or use the cleaning kit following the instructions. After a few of these use and purge cycles the system should be clean in a few weeks.

got this off the manual for the IS 7800
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.

Try "cleaning it" with vinegar. It could be clogged with calcium carbonate. Replace the water with a potent solution of white vinegar and water and operate the unit until the vinegar solution is used up. I use 100% of the supermarket white vinegar and avoid breathing in the "steam." Repeat the procedure once or twice with plain water. If this works, let me know.

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.

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.
