Hi Linda,

Here is the information you requested. My wife puts this unit on the top of her list. It saves her hours of ironing time and she uses on all her dress clothes for work.

In California, the name of the place is

Steam switch won't work

f 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 .

God bless you

Where can I order the steam trigger part that is broken. I need the part number. It is a Rowenta DG980. Thanks

Rowenta RS-DG0123 Knob Trigger, Blue

Carefully pry off blue handle cover on top with a popsicle stick.

A quick (maybe permanent) fix while waiting for your part: you can "weld" the plastic trigger back together. It doesn't have enough surface area for glue. Position the break back together. Secure parts so they don't move. Heat a medium-small flat blade screwdriver until it will just melt the plastic with a gentle touch. Touch the tip parallel to the break and melt a shallow groove about 1/4 of the way into the break. You should be centered on the break so you melt a bit of each piece. This will be the start of melting the two pieces together. Now, as you do each side of the break, use the flat of the blade to "trowel" the curled up plastic back into the groove you just made. Be careful not to distort the side that activates the switch. Ours is holding so well that I keep the new part in case this ever breaks again.
Less is more: use only enough heat to melt the plastic with a gentle touch. If it's red-hot you went WAY too far. You can always try more heat, but if you fry the part, you are done until your new part comes.

My puppy has just chewed the sealed plug off my Rowenta Master. Is it safe to wire up a basic new plug? Bit worried about the water/electric combo. Puppy is fine! Thanks.

The cord that comes with the DG980 is mighty handy because it is nice and long. I would just get a brand new one, You do not want loved ones to be around a "modified" cord. JMHO :o)

What is the best way to clean my Rowenta iron.

I always run the DG980 till the steam runs dry, unplug and let cool. Rowenta recommends using clear water ONLY. They even provide a small hose & faucet adaper to flush out the steam tank reservoir.

Since it sounds like you do not have it, the next best thing is to use filtered water (I have a 3 cylinder water filter in the kitchen for drinking water), The tank has a plug on the side which should be removed once unit is cold, tank flushed with filtered water and drained completely and leave the treaded metal plug and trim cover off to air dry completely, as well as the blue tank.

I found out that you do not need to remove the security torx screws (you can get a set from Kragen's Auto Supply or Harbor Freight Tools); don't mean to advertise, but they have decent prices for any "Do It Yourselfer' arsenal." Use a wooden popsicle stick and gently pry the soft rubber cover from the front (on either side) toward the cord end, just enough to access the trigger/control switch assy from the top. Good luck and keep in touch.

No steam coming out and water tank not pumping water into generator to make steam

The Rowenta DG-980 Iron/Steam Generator works great from our experience (it is a consumer grade unit with commercial grade technology) and over 90% of the user reviews I have seen are happy with it, unfortunately it is a discontinued model & the newer replacement is not as good. Service seems to be rather thin, as is the case with most corporate entities; I was on the phone for 30 minutes before I was able to locate service center in Concord, CA (I am in SoCal), and is the only one in the state that does repairs on them, and I am going to check them out...stay tuned.
