    Same issue. Power lights up, but no steam is made. Trying to find a parts manual, or service manual to guide in the disassembly as some of the attach screws are hidden.

    My Rowenta steamer is just 3 weeks new! Has stopped producing steam even though the unit heats up as usual.I am sooo disappointed! Do not have original packing or receipt so I am lost.

    Same problem - Am wondering of a calcium build-up on the inside is to blame.

    Same problem...clean machine, light goes on but no heat!

    I have the same problem.  Looks like it is going into standby mode.  Orange light lights up (the power light is also the same but I think is of different color - I am color blind and cant tell). I checked the a meter and it is drawing no power.  Removed the four screws at the bottom but looks like there are hidden screws and so cant take it apart.


    Probably the sensor inside is shot and the steamer thinks the tank is empty and so goes into standby mode.

    I found the hidden screws. They are under the wheels. Pop out the wheels (just the rollers) and you will see two more screws. Then unscrew the black plasic part (where the steam hose connects) and you can take the top off.

    I dont know the solution yet.

    My steamer turns on and randomly produces steam...takes forever for the steamer to steam and then it only lasts for a minute or so. The hose is very hot, but no steam coming out!

Ok. This thing is caused by scaling. If the steam generator runs out of water the sensor thinks the tank is empty and causes the machine to go to standby (basically switch off -- orange light comes on). The solution: Open the machine and clean it.

MAKE SURE THE POWER CABLE IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. There are six screws ( phillips - you will need a long screwdriver). Two of them are hidden under the wheels (just pop off the rollers and you will see the screws)

2. Open the steam generator (there are four screws) and be very careful with the 'O' ring -- you damage it and you can say good bye to the machine. Clean it if you see scaling. The amount of scaling present would indicate how hard your water was. This itself may not be cause of the problem but now that you openend the machine, you might as well as clean it for better efficiency.

3. Disconnect the hose to the steam generator (it has two circlips) and clean it. Mine had hard deposit of scales preventing the water reaching the steam generator.

Re assemble it.

Good Luck

    Where are the initial 6 screws to open the machine? I am only seeing 3 after taking off the wheel...

  • Will Dewese Jul 10, 2018

    I found all six screws, but there seems to be something still holding it together, is ther a trick to getting the cover off, once all six screws are removed?

I had the same problem and noticed that there is a small plastic piece that pushes into the water reservoir to release water into the boiler. Mine broke off, and no water leaves the reservoir into the boiler. It looks like suspect design to me, and I havent found a replacement part but I may try to epoxy the piece back on to solve the issue (I hope)

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.
