Question about Rowenta Irons

1 Answer

I have a 1750 watt Rowenta Professional iron. The cord end accidentally fell into a vat of saltwater that was under the shelf where I store my iron. (The saltwater is for my marine fish tank). Now the iron trips the ground fault circuit breaker by my built in ironing board every time I try to plug it in. However, it still seems to work fine if I plug it into an outlet without a ground fault circuit breaker. What can I do, if anything, to remedy this problem?

Hi,
The residual salt inside will be enough for the GFI to think that there is a short in the iron...

Shoet of takeing the iron completely apart and cleaning everything there is nothing you can do...

Trips circuit breaker after 10 minutes of use


This iron is 1500 watts. On a 120 volt breaker, that's about 12.5 amps. Check to see what else is on this breaker. A 1500 watt space heater or a washing machine combined with this iron will pop a 15 or 20 amp breaker.

Power cord on rowenta dm991 is split- needs a new one- can I do this myself?


On the end of the iron there are 2 screws - remove them; on the bottom of the end there is a small slot - put a small screw driver in the slot and pull on the end; you will find the wire that goes into the iron - get a replacement from an iron shop and you are good to go!

Iron leaks water from the back end of the base


This problem is the way that rowenta seals the water tank. If the iron is disassembled and the seal is properly put on it will not leak,, however this seal is a silicone based product and not just an off the shelf gasket. I have sealed and repaired some using a high temp silicone
