If you are using Iron fresh or de-ionised water similar product in your steam iron, leaving the product in the iron should not effect the safe operation of it.
However i would suggest leaving some water in the iron, in case you to leave it turned on dry for too long.

Tip & How-To about Irons
Cleaning a Laundry Iron Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

When I have finished ironing am I supposed to empty the residue water out of the water tank


You may if you wish.
If you do not, and you have no need to use the iron for a long time, the water can evaporate while it is sitting still, and leave a residue of minerals inside the iron, which will, over time, plug up the iron so the steam does no longer work.
That can take many months or a few years.
Using the iron regularly will negate the need to empty it.
God bless your efforts.

How to empty water form iron when finished


Unless you are not going to use the iron for a long time, especially if you use distilled water to fill your steam iron, I would really not bother.
However, if you do want to empty the iron after using it, you have a couple options:
- With the iron still hot, very carefully, use the cleaning function or the 'shot' of steam until no more steam is generated above the sink preferrably.
- With the iron unplug/NO electricty: very carefully tip the water out from whe filling hole above the sink - be aware that the water will remain extremely hot for a long time so avoid splashing water on yourrsel!
Hope the information is useful.

Trouble with Rowenta Irons


If your Rowenta DG 920 is chucking guff from the steam jets you need to flush it as per the instructions. ( ie. Flush every 10 uses ) If you haven;t done it for somewhile, you'll next need to expel the reamining guff with lots of steam. Then no more probs.

Mold


First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar.  I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir.  The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times.  Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting.  Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth

I have a Rowenta DG-980 steam generator. It spits little grains of something when I use my iron. It doesn't hurt my clothing, but I have to brush the stuff off my clothes when I am finished ironing them. I...


Hi, Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water. I shut the power off and unplug. Wait at least an hour or so, access the boiler tank plug on side & if it is cool to the touch, remove it using a coin (quarter), drain and flush the tank several times with the cleaning tube that came with unit or filtered/drinking bottled water several times over the kitchen sink. Finally, drain all the water completely out of the boiler (I leave the plug & cover off to making sure it is completely dry before putting everything back together, ready for the next time). After several use cycles of the above should clear out the debris. My 1st experience with a used DG980 had exactly the same problem. P.S. before ironing the first article, use several bursts of steam away from the ironing board surface to clear out any standing water that was is in the system. Hope this helps :O)

Steam from rowenta preassure iron and steamer


Hi, It is likely you have too much residual water in the iron or have mineral deposits from the tap water you have been using. Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water.
