Need a little clarification, do you feel/hear click when pressing trigger? No means the trigger inner actuator tab is broken...easy fix, just gently pry off cush rubber cover on handle from front to rear (gently to not scar up the works) and lift. Steamer not working?...is it getting hot? Steam building up in the boiler? Need a little more information here before I can proceed...

How to use a steamer.


  1. Plug in the steamer.
    • The steamer usually comes with a smallish padded square with a strap that slips over your hand. (If you so not have one of these, cut out a square from some stiff cardboard, pad it using cotton batting, and cover it with a heavy, smooth, waterproof or water-resistant material.)
  2. Make sure it is steaming nicely before you use it. You check by pulling the little trigger on the handle, and seeing how much steam issues when you release it. You actually want to use this while steaming as well, in order to release more steam when needed.
  3. Hang the garment, and slip the padded square over one hand.
  4. Place the hand with the square on the underside of the garment, and use it to keep the fabric smooth while you steam it.
  5. Use the steamer by holding the nozzle close to the garment, and pulling both it and the padded square in downwards strokes.

Steam button not working


I had the same problem. I found the trigger button at SmallAppliances.com. You'll have to pry off the rubber grip, and unscrew one or two screws on the handle, bu the trigger inserts neatly into the space. Screw it back together, snap on the rubber grip and it will work like new. Below is the part number & price.

Rowenta DG0123 Knob Trigger, Blue $9.99 (plus shipping)

Watch out, the next thing that will go is the on/off switch. Once it starts getting difficult to turn the unit on or off, just plug and unplug it until you get the new part, or you will be stuck one day and need the iron and go to turn it on and it wont start.

The part is $20, and the same site has it available.

Fill it with boiling hot mixture of half water half vinegar. Let it sit two hours. Rinse and repeat as necessary. Hope this helps you out.

Spray button stopped working


We had the same problem and we fixed it by taking off the handle section and putting in a new spring (it looks like a little pin actually).  We tried it because we were not in the US anymore and didn't mind breaking it so do this at your own risk.  It did work though.  When (if) you open it up you'll see how flimsy the pin is.  Its hardly surprising.  Go lightly wit the button after this.

Not steaming


Hi, it sounds like the steam trigger has a broken pin on the end inside the handle. Unplug the unit from the wall and let it cool. I found out that you can remove the main rubber cover by gently prying it up from the front and pivoting it up to the cord end and lifting it off. You will see the trigger snaps in, but look at the finger end going under the microswitch that activates the "Burst of Steam"...it is probably broken. You can get another one from California Electric Service in Concord CA; or you can epoxy a small 3/4" by 1/8" x 1/16" piece of aluminum, bent at 45 degs into trigger hollow, approx 1/4" sticking out to actuate the micro-switch and after a day or two for the epoxy to harden it should work just fine.
