I believe the cotton settings are often in the middle or slightly hotter.

SOURCE: Water drips out of steam holes

I suspect that by placing it on its heel rest the water from the tank is not allowed to enter into the steam chamber and when you go into ironing mode there is a rush of water that is cooling down the sole plate to below steaming temperature. Try keeping it in the horizontal position on a heat proof pad and press the steam button just before going into ironing mode.

SOURCE: At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom

You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:

I got this iron for christmas, it shot steam 2 times and thats all. I had it set on cotton, linen. I used reg bottled water, should i use tap and why no shots of steam.


take it back for a warranty exchange after you check that the thermostat setting is on steam
distilled water is recommended for irons
bottled water ( filtered water) and tap water is the same product and will have minerals and contaminates that affect irons

Steam is escaping from underneath the iron, how to fix this?


Household irons can drip and spit out liquid water from the holes in the metal sole plate instead of producing steam if you have set the temperature too low. The obvious remedy is to increase the temperature, but this setting is not appropriate for all types of fabric. For example, the highest setting is generally recommended for removing wrinkles from cotton garments, and the lowest setting is generally safe for silk garments. Using the iron and its steam functions as the manufacturer intended can reduce or eliminate dripping. If that doesn't solve your problem, consider additional steam iron troubleshooting.

It is sticky and looks like glue.It looks gooey


Hello :

Here I'm going to tell you the basics of cleaning your Rowenta iron :

Things You'll Need:1:Rowenta Soleplate Cleaning Kit
2: Ironing board
3:Clean, dry cloth
4:Two cotton terry cloths, such as washcloths

Now to the cleaning :

1:Pour out any water from the iron. Turn the steam iron on to the "Cotton" setting, which is the one with three dots on the settings dial.

2:Cover an area of the ironing board with a clean, dry cloth. Fold one washcloth or other piece of cotton terry cloth in half and place it onto the cloth on the ironing board.

3:Dispense a 2-inch long daub of cleaning solution onto the terry cloth. Run the heated iron over the cloth directly on the cleaning solution. Move the steam iron in a circular motion over the cleaner on the cloth for a minute or two.

4:Remove the steam iron from the cloth. Carefully wipe any remaining cleaning solution from the soleplate using the second terry cloth.

5:Add water to the steam iron. Turn on the "Steam" or "Burst of Steam" feature. Run the iron over the clean, dry cloth on the ironing board to ensure the cleaning product is entirely gone from the soleplate.

PLEASE RATE !

Steam keeps coming out rusty, leaves marks on clothing. model ir5410


The iron needs to be taken apart and cleaned. If it gets rusty again, it's a poorly designed iron and you'd be better off with a replacement. Steam Irons should not rust!!

No Steam


Your iron will only steam when it has reached the desired tempeture. When the yellow/orange light comes on and the dial has been set for cotton or linen it should steam, when you lower the top and push the steam lever
