Rowenta superpress DG 050 leaks water while steaming all over garment. Do I need to Descale the unit?


I've had the same problem with two Rowenta irons. When set to a lower temperature, the iron has a bad habit of leaking water when the steam option is on. I have to either turn up the temperature setting or shut off the steam option.

Rowenta iron dg3050 iron potion broken and will not hold steam can you replace the iron part


More than likely your steam valve is broken or stuck. I had one of these and they are worth having repaired. Google Rowenta Repair Center.

Iron leaking and plate dirty


If you have hard water, there will be a buildup of minerals where the rubber gasket on the water tank meets the steam chamber that is built into the sole plate. This will make the rubber gasket surface become hard and no longer seak to the team chamber, resulting in water leaking from the tank onto the outside of the iron.

If you are reasonably skilled with tools and have a Torx T20 driver, you can disassemble the iron and remove the rubber gasket between the tank and the steam chamber and soak it in vinegar to remove the mineral scale. First remove the three Torx screws visible at the rear of the iron and gently pry off the gray rear cover plate. This will expose two screws holding the rear end of the sole plate. Remove those two screws. Then gently pry off the stainless steel nose piece on the front of the iron; this is the curved piece that says "high precision" on it. This will then expose the screw that holds the front of the sole plate on the handle. Remove thqt screw. Pull the black connector at the rear of the iron off the two rods to which it is attached, and you can move the sole plate away from the handle. The rubber piece in the handle that is sort of oval shaped and about 2 inches long is the gasket that is probably causing the leak. Gently remove it and soak it in vinegar to remove the scale, and remove the scle from the round hole where it meets the steam chamber in the sole plate. .When they are clean, reassemble the gasket onto the handle and the sole plate onto the handle, connecting the electrical connections, and replace the screws, It is not simple, but it is doable.

Need a cap gasket for a Rowenta DG5030


I showed the part to my husband. He took it to our local Aubuchon Hardware and bought the same size gasket for 59 cents. I just tested it out and my iron works just fine now. The one from the hardware store is black, vs the Rowenta one which is green. Who cares what the color is, no one sees it anyway. However, if you have to send your machine for repair for something else, they may not honor your warranty as you've now added after-market parts. Just thought I mention that. Good luck.

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

Rowenta Steam Iron Leak


I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.
