It depends on what plastic the rollers are made of. This product has alot of bad reviews on several web sites. If the reviews are anything to go by, I would be worried about the plastic rollers.

Tip

Cleaning a Steam Iron Soleplate


During the day to day use of a steam iron there can be normal buildup accumulate on the soleplate of the iron. Other things such as melted synthetic fibers, iron-on trims, and fusibles can also buildup on the sole plate of the iron. These can be removed with the use of a quality hot soleplate cleaner. Soleplate Cleaning Kits can be purchased from many service centers or can be found online by doing a search for “soleplate cleaning kit”.

If you have had the misfortune of getting melted plastic on the soleplate of your iron, you can remove that by taking a piece of Aluminum foil and sprinkling it with salt. Then take the hot iron and work it back and forth over the salt to break up the plastic and remove it from the bottom of the iron.

Avoid starches and be careful of synthetic materials. Also avoid zippers and buttons that can scratch the bottom of your iron.

Do not use the soleplate cleaners on your iron if it has a non-stick surface. With the non-stick surface you should not need the cleaning anyway. These surfaces can be damaged easily by anything abrasive. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any soleplate. Use the soleplate cleaning kit.

The holes in the bottom of our iron can be cleaned by using a pipe cleaner of a Q-tip.
Simply make sure the bottom is cool and then insert the pipe cleaner or Q-tip into the holes one by one and circle them around inside to clean out the hole.

If your iron has a “self clean” feature, do not over use it. It is recommended that you use it at least once per year, but not more then once per month.

Also look for my other tips on taking care of your steam iron.

I have lost my instructions on how to "self clean"


Straight from the manual:
http://www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf

Fill the iron with tap water to the max mark on the water tank.
Be sure that variable steam lever is set to minimum.
Stand iron on heel and plug in. • Set thermostat to ••• setting.
Once heated, unplug iron.
Hold iron horizontally over the sink with the soleplate pointing away from body.
Move the variable steam lever completely to the right and hold in the self clean position for one minute.



Warning: Doing this will cause steam and hot water to be ejected from the soleplate. Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body.
• Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate.
• Carefully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the soleplate (although this has no effect on glide or performance.)
Warning: Iron and soleplate may still be very hot. Exercise care while wiping.
• Place iron on heel and leave to cool. Before using iron after self cleaning, test steam and burst
of steam on an old towel or cloth than can be discarded.

Do i need that stand to make this iron work? nothings happening. lights are the only thing that works!


Does the owner's manual specify? It should. Usually those stands just give you a place to put the iron out of the way so you don't have to lay it flat on the ironing board while it's hot.

Melting plastic from the housing is leaking from the base.


Irons heat up to 410° on the cotton setting.  If yours is leaking, it could be the sealant from inside.  If it was ever repaired, the wrong type of sealer was used.  If it wasn't repaired, it is overheating and needs repaired or replaced.
Are you sure a crayon wasn't put into the opening?

I have a Rowenta 1700 iron. The iron has started to act up. When I plug the iron in it just flashes & does not get hot. It is like it is in the stand by mode when you leave it on & don't iron...


This is a problem with a lot of Rowenta irons. It is the auto shut off that is not working properly and the only way to fix it is to have it disassembled and the switch hardwired to be on whenever the iron it plugged in. It is a thermal metal switch and it just stops working and then the iron will not turn on and the yellow light blinks.

Iron housing is melting


Only paid $19.95 for it, Not going to spend more than $3.00-4.00 to fix it so it has gone the way of the circular file.

Melted material on face of iron


Yes- I had the same problem and could not clean it off. It was a plastic sticker that melted on the iron plate- placed there by the manufacturer. I called Customer Service at Black and Decker, and after all their solutions failed- they sent me a new iron. But this one leaks water terribly to the point where the clothes are soaked after only 1 or 2 articles are ironed! I am beginning to lose faith in Black and Decker products.

Light comes on, but iron will not heat up


Like what was posted before, the cause of the iron lights is on but the heaters are not hot is because either your heater connection is melted or rusted due to water seepage(steam irons). The lights power supply are tapped parallel to the heater supply thus lights is on. Solution is to dismantle the iron to replace the connectors or cables. Though not all iron is easy to dismantle
