I bought one of these units at a Salvation Army Store still in the box brand new. I experienced the same problems (power was lit, but the breaker would trip and turn unit off). I opened the unit up and since I have knowledge of circuits, I bypassed the breaker (trips when it reaches a predetermined temp). I did however add a CRUCIAL electrical component that makes this possible an keeps your house from burning down - a added a simple dial thermostat (like one from a single electric plug-in coil stove top). Bottom line, I took on this project moreless for fun and I would NOT RECOMMEND anyone try this unless you have some knowledge about electrical circuits.

How do I get the boiler on my rowenta steam generator to fill? I was given this model.


You should only use distiller water in the steamer. Never ever use tap water! This is what caused lime and scale build up.
Since it's to late, you have nothing to loose by trying this to descale the unit:

Put up to one cup of white vinegar into the reservoir. Fill 3/4 of the way with water. Turn unit on and let it heat up, but DO NOT RUN STEAM THROUGH THE LINE. Once heated up, turn unit off and let it set for hours. Drain and rinse well. Then run a water only batch through the steam cycle. There are companies that sell special de scaling solutions. But hopefully, the vinegar will work.

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.

PS-200 Iron with Auto Shut-off: Can you really fix problems with a steamer? Is ...


The thermostat is the problem, I used aew3656's solution posted elsewhere in FixYa, and took care of the same problem on my steamer, just take out the damaged thermostat and use it as a sample to get a new one from any electronics supply store, BTW don't forget to buy thermal grease, it helps dissipate the heat so your steamer won't overheat, and the thermostat wont't go off every 2mins.

Conair GS33 fabric steamer spews too much water..can't be normal, eh?


Are you setting the body of the steamer on a table? If part of the hose sits lower than the steamer body steam will condense in the hose and collect in the low spot. Steam pressure will push the water out through the nozzle. If your steamer starts to sputter lift the hose so that it is completely above the level of the water reservoir and let the water drain down. Its a good idea to keep the steamer body on the floor so the hose can never get lower than it.

Would you return this PS200 steamer?


If the steamer starts making a "gurgling" noise, like its running out of steam, hold the hose straight up for several seconds. It says to do this in the manual and gets the steam flowing again--works great!
