Rowenta Steam generator dg5030 parts

Hi, I need a replacement trigger for inside the handle of above iron but can't get one through rowenta or the people listed on their site as they say I have to send in the entire iron as the tank comes as whole, the iron part comes as a whole part and something else. I know damn well someone somewhere has the parts that make up these whole parts but not sure who. Can anyone help? I did find one place who said they would take 4 weeks (from krups??) but lost their details.

    I have the same problem. I'm getting ready to send mine in for repair unless

    you have located someone or have found the part to fix it.

I spoke with on 6/15/09 and the iron trigger is not available separately for this model yet. you have to buy the whole iron unit which is about 85.00

I've taken it apart and have the trigger switch out, i'm going to compare it to the switch for my other rowenta that is available and see if it is the same shape/size. I'll report back!

    I have the same problem with my 2nd Rowenta Steam iron, guess I did not learn with the 1st one DG980 . same issue the trigger button broke and was not able to replace it at that time, so I replace the iron with another version of a Rowenta steam Iron and same thing on this Iron DG5030 trigger knob has broke and called several place and they tell me I have to replace the entire unit.... Guess this is the only way Rowenta stays in business by robbing us..... I also will never buy another Rowenta Iron.

More than likely your steam valve is broken or stuck. I had one of these and they are worth having repaired. Google Rowenta Repair Center.

Steam comes out of the place where you put the water in

check the holes in the hot plate are not blocked with lime scale...sounds like you have a back pressure problem

No steam. I pressed the steam button on the underside of iron handle and no staem.

There 's a leaked capacitor in the circuit board. You just have to replace it and it works again.

Please visit the following page for detailed instructions:

Won't steam

I know it's a silly question but are you pressing the trigger in the handle? If you are then the solenoid valve may have failed

No steam comes out of iron

Hi, there is probably a something broken in the moulded plastic trigger assembly (there is a plastic broken finger that actuates a micro-switch under the rubber handle cover). If you are so inclined, use an orange stick and gently pry up the rubber handle cover on either side from the front to the rear cord end to access, inspect and troubleshoot. I am in SoCal and use the California Electric website to obtain parts or go to the Rowenta home website to locate useful manual information, PDF reader and dealer near you.

Steam trigger broke

i did some research for you and i found out the main web for Rowenta Usa and they do provide spare part as well.
You can also send the iron to a repair center near to you if under the warranty at no cost.
This is the information i got from them
Good Luck
