Question about Rowenta DG5030 Iron

Open Question

Steam leaking from around the cap--Rowenta DG5030

Steam is escaping from around the cap. This is the second time this has happened to this iron. I called and ordered a small green rubber washer to go onto the screw cap...didn't work. Then I bought a complete new cap..it worked for about a year. Now, it is happening again. I bought another new cap, but it is still squirting steam when the cap is screwed on. This is a real pain because I iron a lot. I did notice that the black, flat, rubber washer that surrounds the base screw in part seems to be more worn on one side than the other. The metal receiving end of the screw protudes more on one side than the other. It seems to be in that area where the steam is escaping. Is there anything I can do to fix this myself? I don't want to ship this heavy steamer/iron. Jane

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak

I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.

SOURCE: What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron?

The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

If you need parts, here is the Rowenta repair facility....

WIre brush the caps screw threads and replace the O Ring ASAP.
DOn't use the iron until you get a new O ring and they need to be the orange/red rubber ones they are able to withstand the hot steam black o rings at home depot won't last.

The tank in my rowenta iron is producing steam but the iron is not producing steam


Yes the iron needs to be cleaned. They do have a descaler to clean. the Steam valve with a electronic switch is broken, that is what opens and lets the steam out of the iron when you press the button.

No steam. I pressed the steam button on the underside of iron handle and no staem.


There 's a leaked capacitor in the circuit board. You just have to replace it and it works again.
