Treat it like a coffee maker mix some white vinegar and water then run that solution through the tank. hold it over a sink of course then rinse out with clean tap water. In the future use distilled water and you wont have that problem again for quite some time.

The bottom of my rowenta focus has a burnt grainy film on it. How do I clean it and prevent it from happening again. I've only used it approx 4 times but it is over a year old.


Rowenta FOCUS STEAM IRON DZ5164 DZ5164U1 user manuals
will give their specific instructions.

Rowenta has a kit, including a paste cleaner for iron soleplates, available from Amazon.

Home made cleaners include a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Rub on, let sit, and wipe with a wet cloth. (Some add a drop or two of dawn dishwashing liquid)

Another home made cleaner is the Mr. Clean Magic eraser, thoroughly wet, and rubbed over the soleplate.

Make sure to wipe the soleplate with a clean wet cloth at the end to remove cleaning residue.

Clean your iron's soleplate while the iron is cold, and don't use something scratchy like a steel wool pad, to avoid scratching the surface.

Need manual for rowenta DW2090 iron


I have provided a link to a manual that seems to belong to your model. But unsure what features your model has. This is not available for some reason at the Rowenta USA website.
Refer page 7 of the manual available at this site
http://laundry.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/rowenta/1103898336__4605.html?p=1

Self Clean - prolongs the life of the iron
The Self clean function flushes dirt and scale particles
out of the steam chamber.
To operate:
• Fill the tank with untreated tap water up to the maximum
mark and heat the iron to max. temperature.
• Unplug from the mains.
• Hold iron over a sink horizontally, push the steam control
3 past the position and into the Self Clean position
and hold it there: steam will now begin to build up.
After a few seconds water and steam will emerge from
the soleplate, rinsing dirt and scale particles out of the
steam chamber.

After approx. 1 minute move the steam control slide to
the position.
• Insert mains plug and allow the iron to heat up again.
• Wait until the remaining water has evaporated.
• Unplug from the mains and allow iron to fully cool
down.
• When cool, the soleplate can be wiped with a damp
cloth.
We recommend using the Self Clean function approx.
Every 2 weeks. If the water is very hard, the iron should
be cleaned weekly.
Self Clean Valve
The self clean valve prevents the drip hole into the steam
chamber from furring or blocking up. To ensure the iron
continues to function properly, open and close the valve
by sliding the steam control to max then min a few times
after use.

It is sticky and looks like glue.It looks gooey


Hello :

Here I'm going to tell you the basics of cleaning your Rowenta iron :

Things You'll Need:1:Rowenta Soleplate Cleaning Kit
2: Ironing board
3:Clean, dry cloth
4:Two cotton terry cloths, such as washcloths

Now to the cleaning :

1:Pour out any water from the iron. Turn the steam iron on to the "Cotton" setting, which is the one with three dots on the settings dial.

2:Cover an area of the ironing board with a clean, dry cloth. Fold one washcloth or other piece of cotton terry cloth in half and place it onto the cloth on the ironing board.

3:Dispense a 2-inch long daub of cleaning solution onto the terry cloth. Run the heated iron over the cloth directly on the cleaning solution. Move the steam iron in a circular motion over the cleaner on the cloth for a minute or two.

4:Remove the steam iron from the cloth. Carefully wipe any remaining cleaning solution from the soleplate using the second terry cloth.

5:Add water to the steam iron. Turn on the "Steam" or "Burst of Steam" feature. Run the iron over the clean, dry cloth on the ironing board to ensure the cleaning product is entirely gone from the soleplate.

PLEASE RATE !

I got something on the bottom of my rowenta steam iron. How do I remove this? Can I use an SOS or brillo pad?


I would not use that type scrubbing pad. It will probably get steel fibers in the steam ports -- if you don't get them all out you could get rust on your clothes.

Try a stiff fiber scrubbing pad -- non-metallic. If you use soap, check to see if the steam ports need cleaning of whatever soap may have gotten in them.

And then maybe run some steam though the iron -- like steam iron an old rag to clean it up before actually putting the iron on good clothes.

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:
