SOURCE: Not steaming
Hi, it sounds like the steam trigger has a broken pin on the end inside the handle. Unplug the unit from the wall and let it cool. I found out that you can remove the main rubber cover by gently prying it up from the front and pivoting it up to the cord end and lifting it off. You will see the trigger snaps in, but look at the finger end going under the microswitch that activates the "Burst of Steam"...it is probably broken. You can get another one from California Electric Service in Concord CA; or you can epoxy a small 3/4" by 1/8" x 1/16" piece of aluminum, bent at 45 degs into trigger hollow, approx 1/4" sticking out to actuate the micro-switch and after a day or two for the epoxy to harden it should work just fine.

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

I had a problem and tracked it down to the pump. If you take the iron apart, the pump sits towards the front of the iron and has 3 tubes connected to it. Remove the srew-down bracket and free the pump from the plastic clasps on the base. Disconnect tubes and wires (remembering where they go.
Remove the circular securing spring from the front of the pump and drop the metal barrel from the housing. Unscrew the rear plastic assembly and set aside. there is a joint inside where the plastic assembly was - this is has an o-ring and is simply a pull-apart. It deos not need screwing. Pull the metal barrel apart, taking care to note the sequence for reassembly. Inside the barel is a larger rubber washer. Pull on the metal tube that goes through the centre of the washer using a pair of pliers - it will come free.
You will then see the problem - the spring inside the metal barrel will have broken. Take care, because at the other end of the spring is a small plastic washer that must be retained. Find a pen that has a short spring inside and use this as a replacement. If necessary, you can trim the spring to make it the right lenght. Ensure you have removed all broken pieces of spring, and reassemble. Try it out before finally attaching the pump inside the iron. It took me 2-3 attempts to get the spring tension right. If you can find a 'PENAC RB-085B BA1002' pen, the spring is perfect.
Once you have got it right, reassemble.
I have to replace the spring approx every 6 months as the replacement is obviously not meant for the job and wears or rusts or breaks. However, I am getting extended use from my otherwise broken iron.
Take care - things inside get HOT!!
Hope this helps.

Diagostics 1: When pressing trigger, do you hear microswitch click? If not, the plastic tab on the trigger mechanism has broken off. You can pull the plastic cover off the handle with orange stick or thin screwdriver...gently to not scar anything. In other diagnostic threads on this great Rowenta iron there is an appliance store that can get you the parts and is very good.
