Question about Rowenta Professional DM890 Iron with Auto Shut-off

1 Answer

My Rowenta Professional will not come on.

I keep it plugged in and just pick the iron up and set it on it's sole plate to turn it on and then sit it upright again to heat. It won't turn on at all, I think something is wrong with the cord, when I move it around it might flick the light on for a split second and then go off again. Help!!!

Yes, there is a broken wire inside of the cord. This is a potentially dangerous situation for you as it could result in a deadly shock or a fire. The cord can be replaced for about $25.00 at a repair shop. Therefore, it may be more logical to trash this iron and get a new one.

Either way, good luck.

IRon heats standing but the light goes out when I set it horizontal to iron a garment. I think the cord is needing replacement but need advice.


If the iron is not moved while it is plugged
in, an internal safety switch will turn it off.
- It will turn off in 8 minutes if left vertically or
in 30 seconds if left on its soleplate or tipped
over. A red flashing light indicates that the
auto-off has been activated.

The above information is from the Rowenta DX1700 Owner's Manual. I think most, if not all Rowenta irons have the "auto off" safety feature. If your iron is going off before the 30 seconds idle time, the sensor may be defective. If you are letting it sit on the sole plate longer than 30 seconds, you may just need to work faster. ;-)

The iron heats fine but the water flows out as soon as it goes in. is it repairable?


Hi,
For some reason it seems that the seam between the iron tank and the sole plate comes apart....while it may be technically repairable... realistically it is not....you are better off to get another iron...

How to repair aan electrical iron


Hi,

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical chord, and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical chord . 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 sole plate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the sole plate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

The tools you will need are

  • Screwdrivers
  • Toothpicks or pipe cleaners
  • Sewing needle
  • Commercial electric iron cleaning solution or vinegar and water
  • Commercial sole plate cleaner or baking soda and water
  • Steel wool
  • Emery cloth
Please rate my solution.

I need to use the self clean on my Rowenta professional iron


On the Rowenta DX8750 Professional model you fill the water tank, set on high, and HOLD the steam level lever all the way over to the right (where it says "self clean"). I did not see the info on the internet anywhere (not even in an online manual I found - my husband pointed it out to me.

You have to hold the lever over the entire time, it won't stay in that position so you almost have to use two hands. Pick the iron up hold it as you would ironing and rock it back and forth bottom to top. It's good to have a cloth under the iron so the yucky stuff doesn't get on your ironing board. I rocked it, and then would lift it nearly vertical and flakes of yuck would come out in the steam, and browinish yucky stuff would come out of the steam holes - just clean that off the sole plate when cool.

Sticky substance on iron plate


get some of the Rowenta remover, YOu put it on your sole plate when Iron is warm. I use an old facecloth, put some on the cloth, then drag the iron side ways or back and forth. Then a clean towel to clean, when it does nto remove, i put some directly on the iron, does a pretty great job.. keep up with the stuff. If you are using fusible things when you Iron, you set yourself up with sggrivation, but a teflon cloth from a quilt store or on line,.It is used for applique and works great.

Iron No Longer Heats Up


Recommended solution, gently shake, did not work.

Considering the iron was at a minimum two years old, I decided to purchase another Rowenta. I found the recommended solution documented on a FAQ sheet enclosed with the new iron.

I actually own another Rowenta iron (I now have three) that has the same issue. I will send one iron, the one manufactured in Germany, to a Rowenta Service Center to see if can be repaired - it was the first Rowenta iron I purchased and it provided several good years of service.

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...
