Question about Rowenta Professional DX8900 Iron

1 Answer

MY iron is less than 1 year old. It has been stored for about 3 months. Now when I tried to steam a garment with it, it does not steam unless I hold the steam button down. Otherwise nothing comes through the steam vents. Also, I tried to clean it with the self-clean feature. Nothing will come out of the iron while performing the self-cleaning steps. Has anyone had this type of problem? What does this sound like?

Sounds like there was water in the line when it was stored, which caused deposits to bild up in the line and not work without pressure. Hence having to press the button to get steam out.
Try loading it full with really hot water and a small amount of bleach. Steam all of the water out of it into the air. Clean out the resevoir with fresh water after it has cooled and try again.

It will not steam. We put in a solution of vinegar and 2 parts water from a pitcher that filters water. Will this be considered distilled water or is distilled water critical?


Distilled water and filtered water are not the same. Distilled water is water that has been boiled then condensed so that most of the impurities that cause water hardness (Sodium, Calcium, etc.) have been removed. Filtering does not remove these which is why your iron will clog up much quicker. Same applies to your car battery, distilled water only! To clean it mix "Lime Away" with water about 1/4 cup with water every 6 months or so, then rinse with clean water a few times to get rid of the green color, steam until it comes out clear again..

I have a Euro-Pro E8000. It is about 15 years old. The iron heats up but does not produce steam. I probably have not used it in about 1 year. Any suggestions?


Check that the steam holes in the base are clear. There are patent sale cleaners available commercially. Enquire at any major appliance store etc.

I have a Russell Hobbs Steam Generator iron - less than two years old. It has started to leak water - not really sure where it's coming from - it just pours out and eventually fuses the plug.

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'

Just a few months old and stopped steaming, steams frowater entry


I have taken one of these completely apart and found it is glued together except for the platinum plate on the bottom. It is held on by circular lock clips and will break w/o proper tool. I see no way to repair these and the cost of sending in will probably be as expensive as a new one. I have seen them at Lowes and TuesdayMorning for about $100.00. Have tried to get a repair manual from Rowenta-good luck!

No steam


It appears that your rocker switch is broken, I am attempting to find a source for the switch and the screw driver that removes the screws holding the unit together
