Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I was getting ready to iron a pair of pants that were polyesterrayon and 4% spandex. I thought I had my Rowenta iron turned down low enough but when I placed the iron on the pants they melted. Well needless to say I've been trying for months to get my iron clean. It looks fairly clean on the surface but when I iron I'm still getting black smudges on my clothes. Please help!elaine

First, UNPLUG THE IRON. DO THIS PART COLD. Clean the soleplate with scotch brite and WD-40. Next, you will have to remove the WD-40 residue from the soleplate with something like windex. Make sure you get around the steam holes.
Next-Plug it in and fill it with 50-50 mix of water and white vinegar. Set it for steam and let it run through. Refill it with plain water and steam it out again, until there is NO VINEGAR SMELL. This will clean the deposits out of the tank and steam vents.

I need to replace the plug in cord on my rowenta iron. I would replace but I paid $130 for iron and my cats have chewed on the cord so I thought it "might" be a simple replacement.


This is the second cat-chewed-a-wire question tonight.

The only thing to do is to replace the entire cord. You could cut out the chewed section and splice it with **** connectors and electrical tape, but you have a nice iron with a 12' cord. I believe Rowenta uses Torx screws on their irons.

Rowenta has customer support and a list of service centers online:

If you are in the U.S., go to:

http://www.rowentausa.com

and then click on the 'CUSTOMER SERVICE' link on the gray bar below center of the page.

In the 'After Sales Services' column, click on 'Service Centres' and look for one close to you. Perhaps you can order a new cord and use the old cord as a chew-toy decoy.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

I have a white powdery substance coming out of the steam vents of my Rowenta iron. How do I get rid of this stuff?


The iron has white flakes coming from the steam vents.

The white flakes can be caused by calcium or other minerals in the tap water. To solve this problem, switch to bottled spring water. Once the water is changed it may take several uses before your iron adjusts to the new mixture and the issue is corrected.


In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

How do I fix my Rowenta Iron? It leaks from the base. It has never been dropped.


Some gasket of flat iron wear out in time. To remedy this problem you must first detect where the leak was coming from. Usually it comes from the area where the water meets the vaporizing chamber. When you found the leaking area you remove the water dry it thoroughly and apply a high temperature gasket maker at the leak and wait it to cure naturally. Usually one day is enough to get the flat iron to work again.

Run white vinegar through the iron over the sink with iron on high & steam button pressed down. This should dissolve any minerals that build up in it. Then run water through it over the sink to rinse the vinegar out.

I need a customer service manuel. i lost the one that came with the iron when i bought it. it is probably called an instruction book.the model # is 273 .i hope you can hep me get one. thank you for any...


Can't quite track that down by the model number you show, but if you go to this URL:
http://www.rowentausa.com/rowenta/frame.aspx
there is information on an Effective iron that looks pretty close. There are downloadable files in the lower left hand corner. You might have better luck than I did tracking the model number you have at this site as well.
If this solution was helpful to you, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up from you.
Be well, Paul
