Question about Rowenta DZ9080 Iron with Auto Shut-off

Open Question

My rowenta dz9080 is less than a year old and leaks.

Iron leaks water from the bottom, it has never been dropped. It was sitting on ironing board and there was a puddle of water on floor.

SOURCE: steam from rowenta preassure iron and steamer

Hi, It is likely you have too much residual water in the iron or have mineral deposits from the tap water you have been using. Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water. I shut the power off and unplug. Wait at least an hour or so, access the boiler tank plug on side & if it is cool to the touch, remove it using a coin (quarter), drain and flush the tank several times with the cleaning tube that came with unit or filtered/drinking bottled water several times over the kitchen sink. Finally, drain all the water completely out of the boiler (I leave the plug & cover off to making sure it is completely dry before putting everything back together, ready for the next time). After several use cycles of the above should clear out the debris. My 1st experience with a used DG980 had exactly the same problem. P.S. before ironing the first article, use several bursts of steam away from the ironing board surface to clear out any standing water that was is in the system. Hope this helps :O)

If you dropped it it will probably be an easy fix. Just openup the unit and look for a crack in the cicuit board. This is the case 99 percent of the time in apliance drops. If you find a crack in a board simply epoxy it and on the cicuit side of the board solder jumper wires from point a to point b when you follow the boken trace(s). If more than one trace is broken repeat the process until all the circuits can be repaired. Make sure you use wire of a high enough rating to handle the current the trace handles, and also use wire with heat resistant insulation in this application.
First things first though. Just open it up and have a look. The plug to the heating element may have just been knocked off. With a little trouble shooting skills and a good look you should be able to see your problem. If you get it open and see something I did not tell you how to fix just post any question you have and I will answer them for you.

Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

Iron heating sporadically and sensor lights working sporadically


sounds like a loose connection in the power transfer, some piece of metal may be broken or the cord itself may be damaged in some place, you could try replacing the cord. I would just go and buy a new iron. They aren't all that expensive anymore. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I hope you solve your problem. If you want any further help or have any other questions, please let me know, otherwise have a Good Day.

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!
