SOURCE: no steam comes out of iron

Hi, there is probably a something broken in the moulded plastic trigger assembly (there is a plastic broken finger that actuates a micro-switch under the rubber handle cover). If you are so inclined, use an orange stick and gently pry up the rubber handle cover on either side from the front to the rear cord end to access, inspect and troubleshoot. I am in SoCal and use the California Electric website to obtain parts or go to the Rowenta home website to locate useful manual information, PDF reader and dealer near you.

SOURCE: no steam coming out and water tank not pumping water into generator to make steam

The Rowenta DG-980 Iron/Steam Generator works great from our experience (it is a consumer grade unit with commercial grade technology) and over 90% of the user reviews I have seen are happy with it, unfortunately it is a discontinued model & the newer replacement is not as good. Service seems to be rather thin, as is the case with most corporate entities; I was on the phone for 30 minutes before I was able to locate service center in Concord, CA (I am in SoCal), and is the only one in the state that does repairs on them, and I am going to check them out...stay tuned.

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak

I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.

SOURCE: My Rowenta Garment Steamer will not steam up.

Ok. This thing is caused by scaling. If the steam generator runs out of water the sensor thinks the tank is empty and causes the machine to go to standby (basically switch off -- orange light comes on). The solution: Open the machine and clean it.

MAKE SURE THE POWER CABLE IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. There are six screws ( phillips - you will need a long screwdriver). Two of them are hidden under the wheels (just pop off the rollers and you will see the screws)

2. Open the steam generator (there are four screws) and be very careful with the 'O' ring -- you damage it and you can say good bye to the machine. Clean it if you see scaling. The amount of scaling present would indicate how hard your water was. This itself may not be cause of the problem but now that you openend the machine, you might as well as clean it for better efficiency.

3. Disconnect the hose to the steam generator (it has two circlips) and clean it. Mine had hard deposit of scales preventing the water reaching the steam generator.

Re assemble it.

Good Luck

I bought steam generator iron, iron work but doesn’t produce steam


Mix 1:1 water and white vinegar. Fill the water reservoir with mixture and hold the iron like you would normally. Keep pushing the steam button until steam comes out.

The screw cap on the water tank is leaking steam


You can do a couple of fixes here. One would be to take the iron with you to a hardware store (not a big box store} and find a replacement for your cap. The other would be to pick up some plumbers thread tape. Wrap that around the threads of the cap you have and reinsert it. That will take care of the gaps.

Steam comes out the filler cap on the water base on my Rowenta DG5030


WIre brush the caps screw threads and replace the O Ring ASAP.
DOn't use the iron until you get a new O ring and they need to be the orange/red rubber ones they are able to withstand the hot steam black o rings at home depot won't last.

What could be stopping the water in the holding tank not going in the steam tank on my Perfect Care Iron ?


most likely is mineral build up. drain out the water and replace with white vinegar, warm up the iron and allow it to sit until you see steam (several minutes to half an hour) if no steam, replace the iron.

I am having issues with my steam generator iron. I used it today and after heating up steam was pouring out from the screw on cap. Put on new green rubber ring and I can iron with steam until I sit on base...


I think lime and calcification are the culprit. Use some "CLR" at Home depot, can decalcify the build up on your irons pressure cap.

I have the Rowenta Steam Station. Love it!

Sunbeam steam valet instructions


How to fill your Sunbeam Steam Valet
Here is how you fill your Steam Valet. Press the small button on the back of the handle and pull bottom of handle apart from the top half of steam valet. Then take off the white cap on the inside of the handle and fill with water to top. Place cap back onto the opening and slide handle back and click in place. Plug in and you're ready to steam within a few minutes. If it spits out water let heat up a little longer if that doesn't stop it then tie a thin cloth over the top part where steam comes out to keep the water from spitting out onto your fabric. Hope these instructions are clear enough. More questions about this iron go to www.manualslib.com.

I have a hinari steam generator iron and the steam has stopped coming through the iron and now coming through the base that the iron stands on!can anyone help please


Check the water reservoir of the steam generator and look for some hairline cracks. Also a clogged tubing will likely to go back water on reservoir inlet water pouring. Once you found the cracks, seal it with epoxy just enough to fill the cracks.
Thanks for asking.

My tefal aqua is not taking out creases but i can see steam coming out of the iron I have tried the instructions according to the manual for cleaning but still no good please help


Some creases cannot be removed with any steam iron.

Dampen the area with the creases or place a wet press cloth over the area and try again.

The cap is stuck unable to open to fill?


I had the same problem. I sprayed up into the bottom of the cap with liquid wrench, let it work for a while, then had to use large pliars to twist the cap off.
