Question about Rowenta Powerglide DE011 Iron with Auto Shut-off
This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'

First, don't use tap water for steam. Use distilled water. All major grocers have 1 gallon bottles (Kroger, WalMart, HEB, Target, etc) for les sthan $1.
yes, empty the water tank and fill with distilled water and iron cleaner (it contains vinegar). Then clean out with only distilled water.
One treatment will last for a year.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.
God bless you
