Hi. Here's the procedure on how to torbuleshoot the issue.

1. Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam. Fill the tank up.

2. Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some of the settings are dry and won't create steam.

3. Set the temperature dial to the shaded setting which represents steam. You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture (steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no steam.
4. Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a couple of minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent.

5. Iron horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal.

6. Use the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum temperature setting.
7. Let the iron get to a high temperature before expecting steam. If the soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.

All the best!

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.

Iron shuts off intermittently during use, therefore it won't steam. Before we go any further does this site charge for this service?


No charge for my answer, but you can contact an Expert on this type of appliances and discuss it further.

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.

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 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...


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.
