Pump wont run

Clean an iron:

  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.

Service the steam and spray mechanism:

  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
  4. God bless you

The iron heats well and I put the water in, but even when set above the steam icon, pushing the white steam button does nothing. No steam no spritz. When I opened the water chamber to let the water out, I...

Before you go through the process of taking it apart, buy some clr or a similar lime and rust removal product and fill the iron with that, let it sit a while and then dump it out and fill it with water a few times. Often if tap water is used, internal deposits will form and block off the passages, same as what happens in your car radiator over time.Most steam irons work better if you use distilled water in them as there are no dissolved minerals in that. Most replacement parts cost nearly as much as the iron itself and it's generally not cost effective to repair them.

My Rowenta DG8030 steam iron leaks and sputters all over the clothes. How do I clean it. I can't find the manual...

treat it like a coffee maker mix some white vinegar and water then run that solution through the tank. hold it over a sink of course then rinse out with clean tap water. In the future use distilled water and you wont have that problem again for quite some time.

A stink bug climbed in the water chamber and we can't get it out. is there a solution?

Slowly fill the water tank with water. The stink bug should rise to the surface. Continue filling slowly and the flow of the water out of the fill hole should force the stink bug out! Remember as you're filling you must use something that will NOT block the fill hole or the water cannot drain and your "little friend" won't be able to be flushed out by the flow of the water.
I hope this helps!

The iron heats fine but the water flows out as soon as it goes in. is it repairable?

For some reason it seems that the seam between the iron tank and the sole plate comes apart....while it may be technically repairable... realistically it is are better off to get another iron...

I have a rowenta iron that leaks a lot of water

Here's a solution . . . Do NOT buy ROWENTA! I've had 3 Rowenta irons. All of them have eventually began to dump water out of the base. . . heck, the Titanic didn't leak as much as a Rowenta iron!

Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta

Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.
