SOURCE: steam doesnt work

A mineral buildup from your water may be blocking the holes in the soleplate of your iron. Before you do anything, read the instruction booklet for your appliance or call the manufacturer. The old remedy of using vinegar to unclog an iron is no longer recommended for many models. Some manufacturers suggest alternating tap and distilled water in the steam compartment to avoid a mineral buildup; others recommend using a specialized cleaning product (available at fabric and grocery stores) to clean the soleplate.

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.

How to clean inside of iron


Please don't take Landsend advice, as it contadicts this whole "fixya" site! Let's keep it going by not giving in to this throw away world! Some people can't afford a $20 iron @ Wally's!
All the solutions above (besides Landsend) are on it!! Your City water is still too, hard for these delicate, devices. Filtered, as Alan Serna mentioned, is the way to go!! Dump your water out of your iron, when not using-maintenance is key, for everything, even your families!! : ) Have a G8 day!

see the instruction from your manual:
Check the owner's manual for your iron to learn the manufacturer's suggestions for cleaning, what water to use, and storage tips.
Soft-water systems add minerals that can harm an electric steam iron and your clothes so don't fill the iron with softened water. Instead, use filtered or distilled water.
2) if the iron does not heat a( test the power cord for open or defective b) and thermostat for adjust c) test the thermal fuse d) test the heating element for open.
God bless you

I have lost my instructions on how to "self clean"


Straight from the manual:
http://www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf

Fill the iron with tap water to the max mark on the water tank.
Be sure that variable steam lever is set to minimum.
Stand iron on heel and plug in. • Set thermostat to ••• setting.
Once heated, unplug iron.
Hold iron horizontally over the sink with the soleplate pointing away from body.
Move the variable steam lever completely to the right and hold in the self clean position for one minute.



Warning: Doing this will cause steam and hot water to be ejected from the soleplate. Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body.
• Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate.
• Carefully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the soleplate (although this has no effect on glide or performance.)
Warning: Iron and soleplate may still be very hot. Exercise care while wiping.
• Place iron on heel and leave to cool. Before using iron after self cleaning, test steam and burst
of steam on an old towel or cloth than can be discarded.

It leaks water when I iron sometimes staining my clothes with black streaks or water stains.


Hello :

1:Clean your steam iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Your iron is more likely to leak when it has not been cleaned properly. Plus, the water that leaks from a steam iron that hasn't been cleaned will likely be dirty and stain your fabric. Every steam iron brand is different, so be sure to check the manual that came with your iron or browse the manufacturer's website for instructions on keeping your steam iron in good working order.

2:Use your steam iron on a rigid surface like an ironing board. In a rush, you might be tempted to quickly iron a blouse or pants on the nearest available surface like a bed, carpet or even on a table with a towel draped over it. However, these surfaces may not provide the proper amount of level padding for successful steam ironing, and leaks are more likely to occur. Take the time to set up your ironing board for smooth steam ironing to reduce water leaks on a bumpy surface.

3:Allow your steam iron to heat fully in the upright position before ironing. Because your steam iron is designed to convert water into steam that will easily smooth out wrinkles on bulky fabrics, you can avoid leaks by ensuring your iron has time to get the water to the correct temperature. If you lay your steam iron in the horizontal position too quickly, water that is not hot enough to convert to steam will leak. Give the iron a chance to heat up, and then test your steam function on your ironing board cover or spare fabric swatch before tacking your favorite blouse.

4:Turn off the steam function on your iron when ironing at lower temperatures. Since your iron's steam function is designed to convert the water in your iron to steam at the right temperature, lower iron temperatures can cause water to leak if your steam setting is still activated. For ironing more delicate fabrics, turn off the steam to avoid water leaks.

Iron no longer has steam function


If you are using tap water then the hardness of the water could cause the problem. You can usually fix this buy running vinegar water through the iron once or twice like you would a coffee pot.
If you have been using distilled water then you probably need to replace the iron.
