Breville VIN 214 iron leaking - can anyone help please


Service the steam and spray mechanism:

  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
  4. God bless you

Rowenta Iron leaking out of bottom and leaks on clothes


I have one of these and have been battling the leak problem for years. I'm a stubborn mechanical engineer and I'm bound and determined to fix this, when in fact I should just buy another, different, iron.

The problem is then 'handle'. Built into the handle is the water tank. The water tank is made from two pieces which are then glued and screwed together. Think of taking a coke bottle, cutting it in half, and then gluing it back together. Now you see where the problem comes in... the glue they use isn't up to the task, or the heat... or the pressure... is causing the tank to leak somewhere / everywhere.

I have disassembled this several times, meticulously scraped out the old silicone, and tried several different types of silicone to re-seal. So far it always fails. It's good for a while, but maybe a couple months, before it starts leaking again.

Conclusion... BAD DESIGN. Very disappointing, because in every other respect I like this iron better than any I've ever owned.

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.

Iron leaks water from the back end of the base


This problem is the way that rowenta seals the water tank. If the iron is disassembled and the seal is properly put on it will not leak,, however this seal is a silicone based product and not just an off the shelf gasket. I have sealed and repaired some using a high temp silicone

Rowenta DZ9080 Iron with Auto... Problem


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.

LEAKING IRON


This was happening with mine - leaving trails of water behind as well when I ironed. I took it all apart (figured it was already broken, what could I do worse?) I discovered that there is a rubber gasket around the hole that lets water move from the reservoir to the heating plate. The two surfaces (reservoir and plate) are held together by screws, which compresses and seals the gasket. The bottom surface of the reservoir section had been cracked (due to a drop on the cement floor, probably, and the two surfaces could no longer fit tightly together, the crack allowed it to flex, and water leak out. In other word, once it's leaking like that, it's time for a new iron. Sorry I can't offer a fix, but at least a explanation!
