Water coming out of steam holes


Either: the iron is not hot enough to heat the water to steam temperature or the internal water-flow valve is leaking so that too much water is getting through. Check the iron is getting hot enough first. If it is then run some de-scaler (as used in kettles) through the iron to try to clean all the passageways. Always ensure that you fully re-flush the iron after de-scaling or you'll damage your clothes with any acidic residue left in the iron.

Good luck.

My Rowenta pro precision iron steam station gets hot but doesn't steam. How do I get the iron to produce steam?


There are two cause. One the boiler resistance doesn´t turn of because of snap disc or bimetal thermostat fault or because a coil in the working valve (security valve). But if you can heard a click of opening movement of valve when you push the button it is able to be a thermostat.

Gravity feed steam iron


If you have been using tap water in your iron, and your water has lime or calcium in it, then the iron is probably clogged up. You might try using a product like "Lime Away". Read the warnings on the bottle first. Don't get it on your skin or in your eyes. Don't breathe the mist or steam. The bottle I looked at also had warnings about how it would mess up some counter tops or sinks.But if the iron doesn't work anyway, carefully pour some into your iron maybe about one fourth full, then carefully shake the iron to get the stuff all over the insides of the iron holding the iron like you would if you were ironing. Let the iron sit for a bit, then shake it again, maybe a couple more times like that. pour it out into an old bowl that it wont ruin, and see if there are a lot of minerals in the liquid. If there are, that may have cleaned it enough to start working again. Pour enough water in the iron until it is half full, plug it in and turn the temperature up to where it will produce steam, but don't iron any clothes yet because there is still cleaner in the iron. turn the iron so it is like you are ironing, but don't let it touch anything. Hold it over something like some old rags. If steam comes out, don't breathe it, but let it come out for a little while. Pour out that water and refill with fresh water and let it steam over the rags again. Pour that water out and all the chemicals should be flushed out of the iron. Carefully wipe the hot plate off to get any chemicals off the plate. Good Luck
