Wait until the iron is fully warmed up. Keep a towel nearby for the first time you turn the iron flat, press the steam button, check for leaks-then iron your clothes.

How to fix water leaks


Run some vinegar through it to clean seal etc inside iron.
Pour in distilled water until the reservoir is one third full. Tip: For a stronger solution, mix 3/4 cup water and 1/4 cup white vinegar. Turn on the iron to its highest setting and steam-iron a clean cloth for a few minutes, letting clean water flush out any vent deposits.

Tip

Cleaning a Steam Iron White Scale and Brown Water


If you are having problems with your steam iron spitting out brown water or white scale all over your clothing, then you need to read this tip.

Both of these problems are caused by poor quality water being used in your steam iron.
The problems are different in that they are caused by two different types of poor water quality. The brown coloring of the water is usually caused by organic matter or iron mineral in your tap water.

If you are getting white scale on your clothing from your iron then it is usually because of calcium or other minerals in your tap water.

Either of these problems can also contribute to spitting or leaking of the iron when in use.

To clean the inside of the iron you must first empty all the water from the iron. Then fill the iron half full with bottled spring water and then fill to full with vinegar. Run the iron at its hottest setting for 15 minutes and then drain the solution. Fill again with just the bottled spring water. Reheat and then empty. After removing all of the water, turn on the iron and let it sit in the horizontal position for a few seconds to evaporate the last of the water. This will not hurt your iron, but will remove all the moisture before storage.

To keep your iron working well, use bottled spring water, and remember to remove all water before storing your iron. Always allow the iron to cool and store it on its heel.
Using the right water will prolong the life of your iron. Commercial de-scaling cleaners are hard on the inside of the iron and can cause leaks. Do not use distilled water, as it is too pure and will not produce much if any steam.

How do i stop water dripping onto my clothes


ensure that your iron temprature is high enough to generate steam. if ironing delicate cloth ensure your steam option is switched off. if your iron has a filler cap or water container ensure they are fitted securely. water dripping usually when the iron is too cold to turn it to steam or you have a leak somwhere.

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 iron rowenta leaks when before and after i!m iroeing


my iron is different to yours but i used to have leaks as well.

for me it was because i have a heat setting dial that indicates that the steam function is activated when set to a very high temperature.

i also have a push lever on the top of the iron that controls how much, if any, steam is produced by the iron.

the amount of steam is regulated by letting more or less water through to be vaporised by the heating element.

if the heat setting is low and the steam setting has not been switched off then water is being allowed through but the element is not hot enough to vaporise the water. the result is water pooling and either dribbling through onto the clothing you are ironing or running off when you sit the iron up.

maybe it will help if you turn the steam setting off while the iron is not in use.

Suddenly began leaking and overheating, such as too hot for demin but only set of min. Last time this happened I bought a new iron. The new one has been dropped - last year but nothing recently and this...


The iron started leaking from front and back. took iron back to Wal Mart and got another iron and it did the same thing. I cannot use the iron because it is hard to hold the steam almost burn your hands because it leaks a lot all over my cloths . I was so disgusted with the iron until I just put it in the corner and bought another iron from wal mart. I did not know if they would take the iron back , because I had it for a bout (3) months.
