Question about Rowenta Power Duo Iron
My Rowenta 1700W is leaking out of the bottom of the iron and also is starting to leak on the clothes when I iron. I have misplaced my manual and am not sure how to resolve this problem. I need help! Thanks.
I have one of these and have been battling the leak problem for years. I'm a stubborn mechanical engineer and I'm bound and determined to fix this, when in fact I should just buy another, different, iron.
The problem is then 'handle'. Built into the handle is the water tank. The water tank is made from two pieces which are then glued and screwed together. Think of taking a coke bottle, cutting it in half, and then gluing it back together. Now you see where the problem comes in... the glue they use isn't up to the task, or the heat... or the pressure... is causing the tank to leak somewhere / everywhere.
I have disassembled this several times, meticulously scraped out the old silicone, and tried several different types of silicone to re-seal. So far it always fails. It's good for a while, but maybe a couple months, before it starts leaking again.
Conclusion... BAD DESIGN. Very disappointing, because in every other respect I like this iron better than any I've ever owned.
