    Hi,



    Does the water leak from the underside of the boiler tank housing?...there are some drain/vent holes to prevent it from filling up with water. Or is the actual iron leaking from the soleplate or hose assy? You will need security torx screw driver/bits to do minimal disassembly to inspect and locate source of the problem. The security torx tools may be obtained from Kragen Auto Supply or Harbor Freight Tools for decent quality and pricing for the DIY'ers out there.

Yes it is from the bottom of the boiler from a small opening, I guess a vent. Thank you for the help.

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.

We have Rowenta DM 890 steam iron. It dumps water. Also Why not use distilled water?


The following web blog about Rowenta steam irons has some tips on maintaining the iron:
http://www.nasa1.org/iron%20rowenta.htm
The following web blog explains the issue of not using distilled water:
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/laundry/msg011421358265.html
I guess the bottom line is that it takes a higher temperature for distilled water to boil. It also explains that will cause the unit to spit, drip, and leak.
Try affordable spring water, and you should get better results.

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:
