If this question had come through yesterday I would have said it was an April fools joke. Somehow pressure is leaking back into the iron body and the only outlet it can find is some poorly made electrical lead. For starters I suggest that you replace the cord and plug. Perhaps a better quality cord will not do that. For extra security, seal the ends of the wires with silicone sealant. If I had grand kids, this would be a story to tell them, like you say, it is hard to believe but good luck.
I just told my wife the story and she asked if the water was not coming from the wall socket from a leak somewhere else in the house?
Remove the top part and check for the leak. If plastic has been damaged then you must use some good bonding material to close the gap/leak. However if the leak seems to come from over filling , redduce level of water, or from a gasket on the filling part.
Please look carefully into this in the ironing position with the power OFF.
Hope this helps . Good day
The water may come out at the bottom instead of steam. this is due to insufficient heat produced. So switch on your ironbox and keep it in full temperature using the knob. then the water will be coming out as steam and not as water itself. Try again.
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.
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.
This was happening with mine - leaving trails of water behind as well when I ironed. I took it all apart (figured it was already broken, what could I do worse?) I discovered that there is a rubber gasket around the hole that lets water move from the reservoir to the heating plate. The two surfaces (reservoir and plate) are held together by screws, which compresses and seals the gasket. The bottom surface of the reservoir section had been cracked (due to a drop on the cement floor, probably, and the two surfaces could no longer fit tightly together, the crack allowed it to flex, and water leak out. In other word, once it's leaking like that, it's time for a new iron. Sorry I can't offer a fix, but at least a explanation!
