Hi,

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.

The trigger on the handle is not working and neither is the steamer HELP


Need a little clarification, do you feel/hear click when pressing trigger? No means the trigger inner actuator tab is broken...easy fix, just gently pry off cush rubber cover on handle from front to rear (gently to not scar up the works) and lift. Steamer not working?...is it getting hot? Steam building up in the boiler? Need a little more information here before I can proceed...

I have a few Rowenta DG980's that won't stop steaming


I would be more inclined to believe the trigger steam switch is jammed or hung up in the housing. It is a small micro-switch inside the handle under the trigger actuator. You can pry up the blue cushion from the handle from the front towards the back cord using an orange stick or screwdriver but not damage stuff. The button nib may be jammed against the switch hole/housing. Look here for getting parts...

Won't steam


I know it's a silly question but are you pressing the trigger in the handle? If you are then the solenoid valve may have failed

Steam button not working


I had the same problem. I found the trigger button at SmallAppliances.com. You'll have to pry off the rubber grip, and unscrew one or two screws on the handle, bu the trigger inserts neatly into the space. Screw it back together, snap on the rubber grip and it will work like new. Below is the part number & price.

Rowenta DG0123 Knob Trigger, Blue $9.99 (plus shipping)

Watch out, the next thing that will go is the on/off switch. Once it starts getting difficult to turn the unit on or off, just plug and unplug it until you get the new part, or you will be stuck one day and need the iron and go to turn it on and it wont start.

The part is $20, and the same site has it available.

No steam, button jammed


Hi,

I posted a similar fix under Rowenta DG-980 troubleshooting section. You may be able to pry off the soft rubber cover and access the switch assy and initiate a "surgical procedure".564568
Are you working on another iron similar to the DG-980 posting elsewhere on the FixYa website?

As for the Rowenta manufacturer, you can "Google" the Rowenta website at http://www.google.com typing in Rowenta and looking specifically for the Rowenta home website to get manuals, PDF reader and other good stuff. Please advise if your problem is fixed. I'm in SoCal and been to the UK only once.

No steam comes out of iron


Hi, there is probably a something broken in the moulded plastic trigger assembly (there is a plastic broken finger that actuates a micro-switch under the rubber handle cover). If you are so inclined, use an orange stick and gently pry up the rubber handle cover on either side from the front to the rear cord end to access, inspect and troubleshoot. I am in SoCal and use the California Electric website to obtain parts or go to the Rowenta home website to locate useful manual information, PDF reader and dealer near you.
