If you have been using it for several years, you are using it correctly already. the fact that it still operates indicates that you use the proper sort of water in it (not using distilled water is the number one cause of failure in irons). The information available for the Avantis is really generic and will not add to your success, I assure you. Iron on! Farmerbear at FixYa.com

I want use distilled water in my new Rowenta DG8030 steam station but instructions say to use 1/2 tap water and 1/2 distilled water or 100% spring water. Why can't I use 100% distilled water? Why can't I...


Believe it or not, distilled water is quite corrosive, more so when hot. Distilled water doesn't contain any dissolved ions but the water is ionic in nature, the ions of every water molecule tend to dissolve away other elements. Steam generating plants and steam ships as well as steam heating systems treat the water with chemicals to keep the water from eating away the metals of the system and test the chemical makeup several times a day while operating. [I spent 4 years in the Navy on a steam powered ship.]
The same holds true for smaller steam appliances like espresso machines and steamers. A very thin coating of calcium carbonate [limestone] is a good protector but too much makes for inefficiencies and burned up elements.
Somewhere I read that Chrystal Geyser spring water is approximately the correct ion balance for espresso machines and I have been using it for years in my espresso machine. In any case you still need to occasionally de-scale your steamer per the manufacturers recommendations.

How do I clean the water reservoir in my T-FAL Avantis 90 iron. When I use the iron hard particles come out of the steam holes.


Hi, Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron... If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that... For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water, and then use the bottled water instead...

How do I clean the water reservoir in my T-FAL Avantis 90 iron. When I use the iron hard particles come out of the steam holes.


When empty, fill with white vinegar, let it heat up then hold the steam button down to let the vinegar run through the iron. Do this over the sink!! Then fill with water and repeat to rinse the vinegar out.
The vinegar will dissolve the mineral deposits in the iron.

Hi My iron seems to auto shut off in 2 secs when I plug in the power, it shows the red light for a sec and off, what could be the issues.


How old is it?
Is it still under warrenty? if it is take it back to where you bought it.

Otherwise it sounds like the thermostat is broken. Wallmart has some very nice cheap irons.

What should I do ?


The old Rowenta DG-980 is a consumer grade machine but with commercial quality function and features. My gal who worked at a dry cleaners many years ago loves the DG-980. Here is the scoop on how to get it going if just cleaning it is all it needs (our used one had the same problem and I fixed it by doing the following:

Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion.

To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water. I shut the power off and unplug. Wait at least an hour or so, access the boiler tank plug on side & if it is cool to the touch, remove it using a coin (quarter), drain and flush the tank several times with the cleaning tube that came with unit or filtered/drinking bottled water several times over the kitchen sink. Finally, drain all the water completely out of the boiler (I leave the plug & cover off to making sure it is completely dry before putting everything back together, ready for the next time).

After several use cycles of the above should clear out the debris. My 1st experience with a used DG980 had exactly the same problem. P.S. before ironing the first article, use several bursts of steam away from the ironing board surface to clear out any standing water and debris that was is in the system. Hope this helps :O)

Trouble with Rowenta Irons


If your Rowenta DG 920 is chucking guff from the steam jets you need to flush it as per the instructions. ( ie. Flush every 10 uses ) If you haven;t done it for somewhile, you'll next need to expel the reamining guff with lots of steam. Then no more probs.

Hi i have an edbs920 steam generator iron, my problem is that it will dry iron but wont steam up anymore, after turning the system on the power indicator light should turn from the flashing orange pre...


it can be that one of the thermostats controlling the water flow pump into the steam generator has become open circuit, caution is advised as this can potentially overheat the steam generator for there being lack of water, depending on your system design...i could be wrong just a guess !
