Question about Top Irons

1 Answer

My Rowena's boiler iron is making a popping sound. I changed the green washer on the screw on top but no help. It still works but I'm afraid it's going to blow up. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: my rowena precision steam iron steam does not

Solution for me:
I just bought a Rowenta Precision for $5.95 at Goodwill. I brought it home and it didn't work
I read about the cords and weird size screwdriver needed. It sounds like a lot of work. So what I did was push the electrical cord into the iron. it didn't seem to move but must have. The iron works perfectly now. Such a deal!

No steam coming out my Rowena DG8960,but the water is been used in the tank.


It could just be blocked. To unblock you can pour vinigar in the iron, then switch on as normal. Put iron to cleaning mode if it has the option, or else tilt the iron to let it start steaming. The vinigar should clear the blockage and iron should work normally if the internals are not damaged.

Wet steam coming out of iron


You have to take part the iron by unscrewing the three bolts on the side handle with a small phillips driver. Then loose the allen screw on one side of the black thermostat wheel to unloosen it. Then take out the two bolt plastic protectors under the handle and unscrew the two allen bolts, carefully separate the top from the botton of the iron, carefully not to pry loose the cables from the top to the hot shoe.
On the back you will see a small white square box, that is the thermostat, which has a button on top, all you need to do is to push it in. This will make the iron heat up unless you have a thermostat failure (Black wheel with temperature indicators), which you will need to order the part and change it.

Rowenta Iron-Professional Luxe The power cord seems to short out when you move iron. You can wiggle it next to the movable ball and it clicks on and off. The two screw heads on bottom appear to be special...


I drilled out the nubs in the center of the screws. removed the screws, and took off the back plate. The problem is that the cord seems to be abraiding when it swivels, and eventually wears thru. It seems like a fire hazard and should be looked into by Rowena. Anyway, I cut out the damaged cord and reattached it. Problem fixed..

Instructions for use DiLonghi StiroMeglio compact iron (steam boiler Iron)


Is a long story but i make short.Don`t be afraid to leave your iron on.Is common to water tank iron to get working in more then 5-10 minutes.That machine are really safe since they do have more then 1 thermostat to control the water pressure.
How they work is pretty easy.The boil the water to a certan temperature and you know after certan F. the water become steam generatin pressure and steam.The thermostat control the heater and the electroswitch release the steam

If your in not making any steam after 5-10 minutes make sure you hear the electroswitch working.Sometimes they get cloght and even if the boil is under the pressure you can not get any steam at all
Good Luck

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...
