Hi,
It is very possible that the heating element has burnt out... the problem with irons is that to fix them costs more then a new one...
after six years usage, I would go and buy a new one...

Steam button no longer producing steam, steam cord not heating up but water in pressure chamber heats and builds up pressure.


Your steam line is clogged and need attention. Disassemble and remove the blockage and you will be back in business.

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

What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron? I have an expensive European style iron which is no longer producing steam. I have bought an iron descaler/cleaner and have repeated its use. I tried the...


The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

If you need parts, here is the Rowenta repair facility....
California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:
their website is: http://www.californiaelectricservice.com/

Conair steam cleaner sc20 - plugged in, pushed button, no steam


If you need instructions go to www.HandBookLive.com. There are videos for GS4 and GS10 under Appliances category. It says that steam is produced in about 5-6 minutes after you turn power on. Also there is a low water indicator light on GS10 that kills power to teh unit if the water level is low. Maybe that's the problem... Not sure if sc20 is similar

CALCIUM BUILDUP COMING OUT OF THE STEAM HOLES...


Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.

Not steaming


Hi, it sounds like the steam trigger has a broken pin on the end inside the handle. Unplug the unit from the wall and let it cool. I found out that you can remove the main rubber cover by gently prying it up from the front and pivoting it up to the cord end and lifting it off. You will see the trigger snaps in, but look at the finger end going under the microswitch that activates the "Burst of Steam"...it is probably broken. You can get another one from California Electric Service in Concord CA; or you can epoxy a small 3/4" by 1/8" x 1/16" piece of aluminum, bent at 45 degs into trigger hollow, approx 1/4" sticking out to actuate the micro-switch and after a day or two for the epoxy to harden it should work just fine.
