    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

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)

What could be stopping the water in the holding tank not going in the steam tank on my Perfect Care Iron ?


most likely is mineral build up. drain out the water and replace with white vinegar, warm up the iron and allow it to sit until you see steam (several minutes to half an hour) if no steam, replace the iron.

My iron is getting hot but giving no steam can anyone advise


If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below).
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 (see below).
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.

Lost steam pressure


see this causes and fix it.God bless you

Inspect the steam vents from the outside, and use a pipe cleaner or other small utensil to remove any excess buildup that is blocking the vents. Be careful not to let the buildup fall down into the steam vents.

  • 3 Clean the steam iron's directional spray tip. Minerals and other debris can build up on the nozzle over time and will greatly hinder the use of your steam iron.
  • 4 Pour equal parts vinegar and water into the steam iron's water supply tank. Put the steam iron above an empty pot, and turn the iron on. Let it steam the solution until all the water/vinegar solution is gone

    My Rowenta Master Steam Generator - Steam button turns on but does not turn red or heat.


    - First the good news, the service center in Concord is very good and would you believe they have new in the box Rowenta DG980 in stock!

    California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:
    their website is: http://www.californiaelectricservice.com/
    or tech service: service@californiaelectricservice.com

    Now the not so good news. This model uses what I call a "flutter pump" that turns on when the boiler needs more water pumped in if the reservoir is dry and the red light comes on indicating it is out of water.
    Generally, if you remove the blue water reservoir and turn on the unit, in about 5 minutes the boiler should have sufficient heat converting the residual water in the system to steam, for at least one or 2 "bursts of steam".

    If all this works, then likely the $75 electronic printed ckt board driver detector is okay. It enables the flutter pump, fills the boiler with a few tablespoons of water to be converted to steam and repressurizes the steam system. It is the sequence logic this board does that you can use to determine the bad part, find and replace it yourself. There are many thermostats and sensors and without a schematic it is tough to reverse engineer.

    The most expensive parts are the tank heater and sole plate elements followed by the ckt board (make sure you label all the connections & draw a color coded diagram before replacing this part) especially likely if the flutter pump does not turn on and everything else gets hot & steams is okay if unit less than 5-10 yrs old. BTW a new unit is $350 so you have to weigh your options and talk estimate for repair with repair tech if you go that route. A lot can be said if your unit is not that old, have used clear water, allowed steam to run dry (minimizing long term storage with water in unit), and cleaning the boiler as specified in manual. It is worth the price to repair OR replace. It is a great machine.

    My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.


    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.

    Water and iron heats up but no steam comes out.


    there is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged...fill reservoir with vinegar and water (50/50) and allow to soak 24 hrs, then reheat then shake vigorously to drain then rinse then retry
