Question about Irons

1 Answer

When I filled the water resevoir it began pouring out at the bottom of the sole plate, continuously! This is my 4th Rowenta, I sent this one back 4 yrs ago and they replaced it with this iron. It has never steamed very well and now this just started.

Not worth repairing I'm afraid as not economical unless you can strip it down yourself. The only suggestion I have is to empty it completely and put a SMALL amount of water in while it's upright, let it heat up and see whether it works. A new iron will cost less than repairing the old one!

Why is my rowenta iron having something white coming out of it?


Do not use water softened by salt. It\'s all the salt coming out of your iron from the water you are using. Use bottled "Spring Water" do not use "Distilled Water". Your iron will spit and pop.

How can I demineralize my rowenta iron? I use carbon filtered water in it. The last time I used it white stuff came out of the steam ports and it sounded like there was sediment inside when I moved the...


Fill the resevoir with a 25% vinegar to water solution & turn on the iron until it steams. Allow to cool and empty resevoir then rinse with clean water. Fill up resevoir and & turn on the iron until it steams again. Cool, empty & rinse again. DONE!

Only use distilled or reverse osmosis water in your iron. This will reduce mineral build up.

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.

I need to use the self clean on my Rowenta professional iron


On the Rowenta DX8750 Professional model you fill the water tank, set on high, and HOLD the steam level lever all the way over to the right (where it says "self clean"). I did not see the info on the internet anywhere (not even in an online manual I found - my husband pointed it out to me.

You have to hold the lever over the entire time, it won't stay in that position so you almost have to use two hands. Pick the iron up hold it as you would ironing and rock it back and forth bottom to top. It's good to have a cloth under the iron so the yucky stuff doesn't get on your ironing board. I rocked it, and then would lift it nearly vertical and flakes of yuck would come out in the steam, and browinish yucky stuff would come out of the steam holes - just clean that off the sole plate when cool.

Try adding some CLR to the iron, fill it up with water, and run self clean. Then wipe bottom of iron with an old towel. Repeat with clean water in the iron, to rinse out the CLR and minerals.

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.

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...

Brown gunge and white deposits keep coming out of the steam holes on the sole plate. We have tried de-scaling but it has had no effect. This iron has had very little use since we bought it about 18 months...


Try filling full-strength white vinegar instead of water. Then allow to steam out on scrap cloth. The white deposits are likely to be calcium. The brown gunge may be rust. When the deposits are minimized, use only distilled or bottled water from then on.
