It sounds like the element on the iron has failed. I see you posted this quite a while ago, what steps have you already tried? Most likely it is internal hardware failure that was brought on by the self cleaning.. That puts a lot of stress on the element (which is normal, but if it's a bit older iron this can cause the element to fail... end of life so to speak). This iron will need to be serviced or replaced unfortunately. If you are an electrician or engineer you can replace the element yourself, but otherwise I would definitely not recommend it, it can be quite dangerous if done incorrectly.
Thanks Tim

Here is a link to a Rowenta Iron but I'm not sure if this is your model: www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DE-600.pdf

If not, send me the model # and I will try to find the right one. Look on page 11 of this manual, (Trouble Shooting). It may help to solve your problem.

    O.k., first off I would like to let you know that if you have paid $15.00 with no satisfying answer, you are entitle to your money back. I'm not sure how you ask for a refund but you can. Just look at the agreement you agreed to, it should tell you. The reason you are getting charged is because you are commenting on answers that are given to you. If you don't reject these answers, you will get charged because they assume that you are satisfied. It's just the way that Fixya.com is set up...Sorry.

    If my answer is not satisfactory, reject it or you will be charged. So I'm gonna try again.

    I have found a link to your manual. It says DX8000, but I clicked on DX8600. They must be the same: www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf You can zoom in on the manual so you can read it. It says to move the iron or shake it gently to reactivate. Sounds strange doesn't it?

    If that doesn't work, then I would call or e-mail the manufacturer.

    Here is a link to them: www.rowenta.com/ Just click on your country and contact them.

    I hope I helped you a little bit. Don't forget, if I didn't help, reject my solution or you will be charged.

    God Luck!

    Jim

Need manual for rowenta DW2090 iron


I have provided a link to a manual that seems to belong to your model. But unsure what features your model has. This is not available for some reason at the Rowenta USA website.
Refer page 7 of the manual available at this site
http://laundry.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/rowenta/1103898336__4605.html?p=1

Self Clean - prolongs the life of the iron
The Self clean function flushes dirt and scale particles
out of the steam chamber.
To operate:
• Fill the tank with untreated tap water up to the maximum
mark and heat the iron to max. temperature.
• Unplug from the mains.
• Hold iron over a sink horizontally, push the steam control
3 past the position and into the Self Clean position
and hold it there: steam will now begin to build up.
After a few seconds water and steam will emerge from
the soleplate, rinsing dirt and scale particles out of the
steam chamber.

After approx. 1 minute move the steam control slide to
the position.
• Insert mains plug and allow the iron to heat up again.
• Wait until the remaining water has evaporated.
• Unplug from the mains and allow iron to fully cool
down.
• When cool, the soleplate can be wiped with a damp
cloth.
We recommend using the Self Clean function approx.
Every 2 weeks. If the water is very hard, the iron should
be cleaned weekly.
Self Clean Valve
The self clean valve prevents the drip hole into the steam
chamber from furring or blocking up. To ensure the iron
continues to function properly, open and close the valve
by sliding the steam control to max then min a few times
after use.

It is my first time using it, I brought it from USA and it is not working at all!!


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electric cord and check the thermostat .
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below).
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

Frigidaire Gas Self Cleaning Oven door open in lock position


Hello ericndiana6b - Was the unit in self-clean mode? Try pressing and holding the "Clear/Off" button to stop any operation of the EOC. Do this at the same time while pushing and hold the light switch to the left of the door lock. Usually this will trick the oven into unlocking the door. If it is ineffective, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and redo the steps. If door continues to maintain locked while open, the unit may possibly have a faulty door latch or a communication problem with the EOC. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

I am not getting any steam. There is water in the iron but no steam is coming through on any heat setting.


Sounds like Calcium build up. My Rowenta has a self cleaning button. Does yours? Also always make sure you empty your Rowenta before you store it.

No steam coming out of iron


Have you used a self clean function? If not then hold the iron (switched on and heated up) over a kitchen sink and depress the 'power steam' or equivalent button several times.
If that does not clear it you will need to dismantle the iron to clear any blockage.

My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.


SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.
