I cannot get my GCSBDS212 steam iron to make steam.


Have a look at the steam holes in the bottom, they should be nice an clean with no blockage. If they are blocked up you will need to remove the calcium buildup inside the iron. Get some LimeAway at HDepot, pour it into the water reservoir, let sit overnight. Next day turn the iron on and try steaming on some old papers covered with an old rag or towel, once it starts working steam for a few minutes, then unplug, drain it, put in clean distilled water and flush it out until the steam comes out clear. Use distilled water not tap water, it has much less mineral content and will be less likely to plug it up. Most pharmacies and Walmart sell distilled water. ! gallon about $1.25.

My iron is leaking water. Can it be repaired? I picked it up off the ironing board today and it was sitting in a puddle of water. It continued to pour out the bottom. Is this fixable?


I have had several do this after many many years of use. I did not find a fix but ended up buying a new model. If you do not need to use the steam function, you can still use it. Might want to use a spray bottle with water to add the steam the old fashion way.

Rowenta Iron leaking out of bottom and leaks on clothes


I have one of these and have been battling the leak problem for years. I'm a stubborn mechanical engineer and I'm bound and determined to fix this, when in fact I should just buy another, different, iron.

The problem is then 'handle'. Built into the handle is the water tank. The water tank is made from two pieces which are then glued and screwed together. Think of taking a coke bottle, cutting it in half, and then gluing it back together. Now you see where the problem comes in... the glue they use isn't up to the task, or the heat... or the pressure... is causing the tank to leak somewhere / everywhere.

I have disassembled this several times, meticulously scraped out the old silicone, and tried several different types of silicone to re-seal. So far it always fails. It's good for a while, but maybe a couple months, before it starts leaking again.

Conclusion... BAD DESIGN. Very disappointing, because in every other respect I like this iron better than any I've ever owned.

I have 1700W Rowenta Focus and it is fairly new and water won't stay in it. I pour water in and leaks out all around the sole of the iron. What is going on? It never has been dropped, fallen off anything...


Possibly one of two problems.

1. Water tank has a hole in it.
2. Filler tube that go's into tank has come off.

If you are handy and have the correct type screwdriver bits, you may be able to open the iron and have a look.

Other wise it's bite the bullet and buy a new one. Wallmart or similar do some quite good cheep electrical stuff.

LEAKING IRON


This was happening with mine - leaving trails of water behind as well when I ironed. I took it all apart (figured it was already broken, what could I do worse?) I discovered that there is a rubber gasket around the hole that lets water move from the reservoir to the heating plate. The two surfaces (reservoir and plate) are held together by screws, which compresses and seals the gasket. The bottom surface of the reservoir section had been cracked (due to a drop on the cement floor, probably, and the two surfaces could no longer fit tightly together, the crack allowed it to flex, and water leak out. In other word, once it's leaking like that, it's time for a new iron. Sorry I can't offer a fix, but at least a explanation!

Make a solution of half water and half white vinegar. Fill up your iron and get it good and hot then let it sit a couple hours. flush out and repeat as necessary. Hope you find this helpful. Please give me a fixya rating If this works for you. It works very well as long as it is not completely filled with scale. Once you have it
good and clean By a gallon of bottled water at the market and use that for your Iron and you will never have a scale problem again. I learned how to do this 20 years ago from a 80 year old woman from england. If it is really bad you can up
the vinegar concentration but do not go higher than 2 cup to 1.
