Need manual for rowenta DW2090 iron


I have provided a link to a manual that seems to belong to your model. But unsure what features your model has. This is not available for some reason at the Rowenta USA website.
Refer page 7 of the manual available at this site
http://laundry.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/rowenta/1103898336__4605.html?p=1

Self Clean - prolongs the life of the iron
The Self clean function flushes dirt and scale particles
out of the steam chamber.
To operate:
• Fill the tank with untreated tap water up to the maximum
mark and heat the iron to max. temperature.
• Unplug from the mains.
• Hold iron over a sink horizontally, push the steam control
3 past the position and into the Self Clean position
and hold it there: steam will now begin to build up.
After a few seconds water and steam will emerge from
the soleplate, rinsing dirt and scale particles out of the
steam chamber.

After approx. 1 minute move the steam control slide to
the position.
• Insert mains plug and allow the iron to heat up again.
• Wait until the remaining water has evaporated.
• Unplug from the mains and allow iron to fully cool
down.
• When cool, the soleplate can be wiped with a damp
cloth.
We recommend using the Self Clean function approx.
Every 2 weeks. If the water is very hard, the iron should
be cleaned weekly.
Self Clean Valve
The self clean valve prevents the drip hole into the steam
chamber from furring or blocking up. To ensure the iron
continues to function properly, open and close the valve
by sliding the steam control to max then min a few times
after use.

You need to follow the instructions for the iron. Rowenta make a excellent iron but it's water tank and steam chamber need to be cleaned and rinsed out, say every third use depending on how much you use it. Also, allow the iron to reach FULL TEMPRATURE before you use it.

The plug and wire near the plug on my Rowenta iron gets very hot when I use it


The plug is not making proper contact in the wall socket. Clean the pins with steel wool or pot scourer. Do not use water. If you are using a double adapter remove it as it could be the cause of the poor contact. If the problem persist, try a different wall socket and get a qualified person to fix the faulty wall socket.

Cleaning a Rowenta steam iron


According to the manual, you should use regular tap water as long as it is not above 12 grains of hardness. Never use 100% pure distilled water, Rowenta recommends using inexpensive bottled spring water.

Water is coming out the bottom of the iron


There is a rubber grommet that lives between the water tank and the heating plate chamber. If the iron was dropped, this grommet might have become disloged. Another possibility is that there is a problem with the chamber, and lastly with the heater plate. Irons are easy to disassemble if they don't have those special little screws that attempt to thwart the efforts from a standard screwdriver. (Please have the iron unplugged. Connectors in there love to hit stuff and you when disassembled.) Good luck.

I have a rowenta iron that leaks a lot of water


Here's a solution . . . Do NOT buy ROWENTA! I've had 3 Rowenta irons. All of them have eventually began to dump water out of the base. . . heck, the Titanic didn't leak as much as a Rowenta iron!

Rowenta Iron problems


inside the iron is a thermal switch that has failed to make contact. Dissassemble the iron and you will see a small white ceramic pin sticking up out of the heating chamber and on tip there is a small contact. Above it is another contact that makes the heating element work. Easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing to force the contacts together.

The rust spot are probably caused by iron in your tap water. I would suggest you put a solution of half vinegar and half water into the water chamber and leave in the iron overnight.

Then switch it on to steam and holding the iron over the sink or over an old towel, the dirt (residue) comes out of the holes on the soleplate. Sometimes if the iron is badly scaled you might need to repeat the descaling.

Once complete, fill again with clean water and steam away, to flush any of the remaining vinegar out of the iron.

Depending on how often you use your iron and how much iron is in your water, you might consider performing this flush process every 2 or 3 months. It will help extend the life of your iron.

Another option is to use distilled water in your iron. Distilled water has all the minerals removed.

Good Luck!

I have a Digital Advantage iron, the cleaning prompt comes on and I don't know what to do, thank you


I think you need to fill the water chamber almost to full, plug the iron in and rotate the steam dial all the way to the left. There is a "clean" setting. The iron will splutter and drip water and produce steam. This is the cleaning process. You can probably have the iron on any settinng. I hope this helps.
