SOURCE: MY rowenta Iron wont produce steam. IT heats up

Sounds like the Steam control valve is blocked or not opening. try cleaning the iron with a kit from wallmart or similar store. Failing that :It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

SOURCE: Where can I order the

Rowenta RS-DG0123 Knob Trigger, Blue
http://www.smallappliance.com/product.asp?pid=4477&cur=USD&cam=GA_B_rowenta_part

Carefully pry off blue handle cover on top with a popsicle stick.

A quick (maybe permanent) fix while waiting for your part: you can "weld" the plastic trigger back together. It doesn't have enough surface area for glue. Position the break back together. Secure parts so they don't move. Heat a medium-small flat blade screwdriver until it will just melt the plastic with a gentle touch. Touch the tip parallel to the break and melt a shallow groove about 1/4 of the way into the break. You should be centered on the break so you melt a bit of each piece. This will be the start of melting the two pieces together. Now, as you do each side of the break, use the flat of the blade to "trowel" the curled up plastic back into the groove you just made. Be careful not to distort the side that activates the switch. Ours is holding so well that I keep the new part in case this ever breaks again.
Less is more: use only enough heat to melt the plastic with a gentle touch. If it's red-hot you went WAY too far. You can always try more heat, but if you fry the part, you are done until your new part comes.

My Rowenta pro precision iron steam station gets hot but doesn't steam. How do I get the iron to produce steam?


There are two cause. One the boiler resistance doesn´t turn of because of snap disc or bimetal thermostat fault or because a coil in the working valve (security valve). But if you can heard a click of opening movement of valve when you push the button it is able to be a thermostat.

We have a GC8420 steam iron. The steam is regularly discoloured, first a pink, chalky stain - very difficult to get out of fabrics - and today a lot of dark brown/black water coming out. We do empty out...


Hi, Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron... If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that... For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water, and then use the bottled water instead...

I have an bosch sensixx b5 iron and the calc clean sign keeps flashing what can i do .i have lost theinstuctions


Here you have how to solve this issue. It has been obtained from the device's manual.
2. calc'n clean The "calc'n clean" function helps to remove scale particles from the steam dispenser. The iron includes a system to warn when the dispenser needs periodically cleaning. When the "calc 'n clean" symbol lights up on the navigation display the dispenser needs cleaning. Fill the water tank. Plug in the iron and select the temperature setting . After the necessary warm-up period, unplug the iron and hold it over a sink. Position the steam regulator to the "calc'n clean" position and keep it in this position. Gently shake the iron. Boiling water and steam will come out, removing any scale or deposits that might be there. When the iron stops dripping, position the regulator to the position. For improved descaling, heat up the iron again fully and press the steam button several times in quick succession. Then wait until the remaining water has evaporated from the soleplate of the iron. Once it has been cleaned, the cleaning warning must be cancelled on the navigation display. To do this, simply press and hold the on/set navigation key for more than 5 seconds, with the iron plugged in. If you do not do this, the cleaning icon will remain lit. 3. anti-calc The "anti-calc" cartridge has been designed to reduce the build-up of scale produced during steam ironing, helping to extend the useful life of your iron. Nevertheless the "anti-calc" cartridge cannot remove all of the scale that is produced naturally over time.

How to use the calc-clean button


Calc-Clean function
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.

To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.

Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.

Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.

When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.

Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

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
