    My Rowenta steam iron is almost three years old. As of recently the switch is not turning on the iron, after several tries I would get a flicker. Can the switch be replaced?

Using tips from previous commenter, Jason Collins, I thought to check for any blockage in the water flow.
Anyway, if you take out the water "tank" there is a black piece and a white/clear piece that are removable, I removed the white/clear piece and now it works fine! Hope it works for ya'll too.

I want use distilled water in my new Rowenta DG8030 steam station but instructions say to use 1/2 tap water and 1/2 distilled water or 100% spring water. Why can't I use 100% distilled water? Why can't I...


Believe it or not, distilled water is quite corrosive, more so when hot. Distilled water doesn't contain any dissolved ions but the water is ionic in nature, the ions of every water molecule tend to dissolve away other elements. Steam generating plants and steam ships as well as steam heating systems treat the water with chemicals to keep the water from eating away the metals of the system and test the chemical makeup several times a day while operating. [I spent 4 years in the Navy on a steam powered ship.]
The same holds true for smaller steam appliances like espresso machines and steamers. A very thin coating of calcium carbonate [limestone] is a good protector but too much makes for inefficiencies and burned up elements.
Somewhere I read that Chrystal Geyser spring water is approximately the correct ion balance for espresso machines and I have been using it for years in my espresso machine. In any case you still need to occasionally de-scale your steamer per the manufacturers recommendations.

Water keeps coming out after pressing steam button


hi i have just looked this information up and apparently that using 100% distilled water can cause your iron to spit and leak, to solve this problem you should press the steam button and keep pressing it until there is no water left in the iron, then try it again, if it still does this, repeat a few times and then the iron should be fine
hope this helps

Fill the resevoir with a 25% vinegar to water solution & turn on the iron until it steams. Allow to cool and empty resevoir then rinse with clean water. Fill up resevoir and & turn on the iron until it steams again. Cool, empty & rinse again. DONE!

Only use distilled or reverse osmosis water in your iron. This will reduce mineral build up.

Put in as much white vinegar as possible and then turn iron on. Let it stay on for about 30 minutes the try the steam button. Once the steam button begins to work empty the vingar an fill with distilled water to rinse. You'll need to rinse several times to get all of the vinegar out.

My iron will not stop flashing and will not go to green light -- it will not heat up


Hello :

Check the fuse first ! If the fuse is in good condition , then try this troubleshooting .

1: Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam. Fill the tank up .
2:Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some of the settings are dry and won't create steam.
3:Set the temperature dial to the shaded setting which represents steam. You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture (steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no steam.
4:Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a couple of minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent.
5:Iron horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal.
6:Use the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum temperature setting.
7:Let the iron get to a high temperature before expecting steam. If the soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


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'

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:

Rowenta steam generator


Maybe the cap is coated with mineral deposits. Do you use ONLY DISTILLED WATER in the iron? If not, minerals from the water could be the cause. Try pouring some CLR or a similar product over the cap and see if that frees it up . If it does, pour some CLR into the iron's tank, and set it to the highest temperature setting. Run the iron over an old towel to help clean the steam vents. Then fill the tank with DISTILLED WATER and do the same proceedure two more times using DISTILLED WATER ONLY to flush out any remining CLR.
