Rowenta DZ9080 Iron with Auto... Problem

Dear geokohler: My concern is that as I look into the back of the iron there are two more screws I need to remove -HOWEVER, I am seeing a seal made of some type of silicone-heat resistant? instead of the usual rubber seal and am not sure what to use in resealing the area there for the water container as not having a breakdown repair schematic I am hesitant to open it that far-what do ya think?

    Dear geokohler, Well I got tired of waiting for Rowenta-they are messed up for sure-so I opened her up. It was very difficult as several pieces are sealed /glued together, could not get the dial removed from the thermostat control unit with out possibly damaging it, Found one screw, after I broke it, hidden under frt cover on iron with no visible way to remove nice clean cover w/o damage. I will send you pictures of the dis-assembly for help for others in future if ya want them. There are 17 of them showing the iron dis-assembled I would suggest if they drop the iron-take it to a repair shop, get estimate, and see if it's worth it. Iron sells retail for $150.00 is a great iron but don't drop it. There is no printed circuit in this iron as you will see from pics. I feel the heat elements are broken but the assembly is glued in and difficult to remove without manual instructions. I really think you'll appreciate the pictures so send me an e-mail address to send to instead of your limited 150kb sizes or tell me how to reduce the size to send via Fixya. Hope this helps others and you guys.

Hello, All High grade silicones are inherently heat resistant. Look for the best silicone you can find in a tube. The higher the cost of the silicone the higher the quality. You might even try automotive gasket sealer if you want to be absolutely sure of heat resistance. This will be off an orange or blue color though.

Iron heating sporadically and sensor lights working sporadically

sounds like a loose connection in the power transfer, some piece of metal may be broken or the cord itself may be damaged in some place, you could try replacing the cord. I would just go and buy a new iron. They aren't all that expensive anymore. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. I hope you solve your problem. If you want any further help or have any other questions, please let me know, otherwise have a Good Day.

Need to know how to clean a rowenta iron plate

As long as it's not a coated surface - plain steel - get 0000 steelwool to rub it with. It will take some elbow grease but it will work to clean and (almost) polish the surface.
