Question about Rowenta DG-980 Iron
When I turned on the iron this morning, It shot alot of brown water staining my clothes and after this I cleaned it , put more water in the tank and turned it on again but the blinking green light does not stop and the iron starts putting out a lot of steam just on the rest stand , until all the water in the tank is gone. I turned it off and tried again and the same problem. What should I do next. ? Hope it is not broken because I really need it. Please Help. Thanks , L.Abreu.
Very odd to have brown (rust from household pipes) as your DG980 has brass, stainless and aluminum, so deposits would be white. Make sure you flush and clean steamer tank and reservoir with clear filtered or drinking water only. When final ironing job is at or near completion, pull the reservoir and hold the burst of steam button several times to purge the system of water until no more steam when red light comes on telling you it is out of water. Let cool for couple hours, and unscrew tank plug cover and screw...bring over to kitchen sink. I have a filtered water faucet that I fill and swish around in the tank and then shake out several times as dry as possible. I leave the cover off, the blue reservoir empty, so last bits of water evaporate out. Put it all back together, ready for next use. After 3 or 4 cycles of this use, clean, store routine the iron should be clean. This is painless and costs nothing but a little care. Do not use vinegar or anything else and you should be fine. The deposits will slowly be purged if you use clear filtered water only.

You should have a controll or button on the iron that tells it to release the steam. make sure that the button or controll is not stuck.

Brown water and white scale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...
If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...
For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,
and then use the bottled water instead...
