SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.

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.
