Question about Rowenta DG-980 Iron

1 Answer

Stean escaping around cap

Iron is new, used once. I have taken the cap off and put it back 6 times and still will not work. I have the older model for 3 years and no problems.

    Please check the damaged threads and sealing surfaces of the all metal brass tank for cracks or evidence of water leaks. Also, the metal cap has a neoprene gasket seal that should inside it, that should have a groove indicating it is contacting the threaded nipple. You may also want to compare it with the older model, swapping them and checking if the problem stays (indicating tank problem) or transfers to the properly working one (indicating bad cap or seal).

I have a Rowenta Pro. Iron, model DE-86.1A with auto shut-off. It sticks on auto shut-off. I have to move it around for it to heat up, as indicated by the sensor light on the top.


I believe that is how the safety feature works.

Once the iron detects no movement for a certain period of time (the iron assumes you have finished ironing) the iron will shut of the heating element.

One you have moved it around, the timer should prevent it from auto shutting down for a period of time.

Rowenta Professional Iron - steam button suddenly stopped working


Have you tried descaling it? It may well be blocked up with limescale. Personally I only ever buy cheap irons and bin them when they go wrong! As you say-they are generally too expensive to repair.

Broun iron (model SI6285) quit working


Small appliances nowadays aren't really designed to be taken apart. Most likely there wont be replacement parts, you are probably better off just buying a new one.

Maybe the cap is coated with mineral deposits. Do you use ONLY DISTILLED WATER in the iron? If not, minerals from the water could be the cause. Try pouring some CLR or a similar product over the cap and see if that frees it up . If it does, pour some CLR into the iron's tank, and set it to the highest temperature setting. Run the iron over an old towel to help clean the steam vents. Then fill the tank with DISTILLED WATER and do the same proceedure two more times using DISTILLED WATER ONLY to flush out any remining CLR.
