20 Most Recent Rowenta DE851 Iron Questions & Answers


Hey, You have a "Mildew" issue. Just like leaving clothes in the washer too long before putting them into the dryer. If you read your iron's manual, it is recommended to use "Distilled" water...not tap water. Tap water has impurities...Distilled water does not. Here's the fix...MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOME WHEN YOU DO THIS! Get distilled water (From Grocery Store) Mix 1/2 cup distilled water with 1/2 cup vinegar. Put this into your iron and leave it on. To help it along, push the "Steam" button frequently. You can do this several times...the acid in the vinegar will clean out the residue. Once this is done, fill the iron with water, add a couple of drops of lemon juice and you'll be good to go. I know this to be fact...just did it myself : )

Only if you check up with Rowenta this part will be available but if you can search around in service shops you may be able to salvage one from a coil damaged iron that was discarded.
If not fabricate the top with a fibreglass or plastic repair shop and it can be doe to suit the top after a paint job.(If broken use good glue and then paint on top)

They are built to shut off after about 30 sec or so if the iron is not moving and the iron is in pressing position (sole plate down). They shut off if they are not moving and standing with the sole plate vertical, in about 5 minutes. If you move the iron (like ironing) they reheat. If it doing something else the electronic control is defective. It is cheaper to replace than repair.
