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)

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.

I am not getting any steam. There is water in the iron but no steam is coming through on any heat setting.


Sounds like Calcium build up. My Rowenta has a self cleaning button. Does yours? Also always make sure you empty your Rowenta before you store it.

I have the vertical commercial steamer model IS 8100. Machine lights up, no steam. The cord doesn't even get hot. I've tried to demineralize it by allowing vinegar to sit in the well of the base. Thanks...


My unit did the same thing. There is a temperature fuse attached to the heating chamber. If the unit overheats it will blow this fuse. It is not re-setable and must be replaced. Radio Shack carries these items.

Check your chamber for crude. Mine was pretty bad and I ended up filling it up with white vinegar over night. If you can get it to work, boil a solution of 1/4 white vinegar and DISTILLED water. Let it run through a whole tank of it and then run it with just DISTILLED water until you don't smell vinegar anymore. Do this every few months with heavy use.

IS8100 Commercial Steamer is leaking water


Try "cleaning it" with vinegar. It could be clogged with calcium carbonate. Replace the water with a potent solution of white vinegar and water and operate the unit until the vinegar solution is used up. I use 100% of the supermarket white vinegar and avoid breathing in the "steam." Repeat the procedure once or twice with plain water. If this works, let me know.

No steam, button jammed


Hi,

I posted a similar fix under Rowenta DG-980 troubleshooting section. You may be able to pry off the soft rubber cover and access the switch assy and initiate a "surgical procedure".564568
Are you working on another iron similar to the DG-980 posting elsewhere on the FixYa website?

As for the Rowenta manufacturer, you can "Google" the Rowenta website at http://www.google.com typing in Rowenta and looking specifically for the Rowenta home website to get manuals, PDF reader and other good stuff. Please advise if your problem is fixed. I'm in SoCal and been to the UK only once.
