20 Most Recent Rowenta Commercial Garment Steamer - White Questions & Answers

I have a Rowenta garment steamer. It will turn on but no steam comes out. Does it need to be cleaned from the build up of iron, etc. from the water? If so, how do I go about this?

Ok. This thing is caused by scaling. If the steam generator runs out of water the sensor thinks the tank is empty and causes the machine to go to standby (basically switch off -- orange light comes on). The solution: Open the machine and clean it.


1. There are six screws ( phillips - you will need a long screwdriver). Two of them are hidden under the wheels (just pop off the rollers and you will see the screws)

2. Open the steam generator (there are four screws) and be very careful with the 'O' ring -- you damage it and you can say good bye to the machine. Clean it if you see scaling. The amount of scaling present would indicate how hard your water was. This itself may not be cause of the problem but now that you openend the machine, you might as well as clean it for better efficiency.

3. Disconnect the hose to the steam generator (it has two circlips) and clean it. Mine had hard deposit of scales preventing the water reaching the steam generator.

Re assemble it.

Good Luck

The steam not only removes wrinkles, it freshens the fabrics - making them look cleaner. You can use this steamer on clothing, bedding and table linens and also to remove.

You have a build up of water In the hose. Sometimes happens because the hose is too low to the ground. Try stretching the hose up and tap it and the water should travel back down the hose. Another reason could be that you are using too much steam for that particular fabric.

Just pop it off. Need force, no need to take hub caps off.

Well this was helpful but also HELLfull! I guess because I have a 9050 !! I took out the screws & could not remove the hose it was attached with 2 clamps & a washer! I put the whole darn thing in my tub ( I have a sprayer in there) and yes tons of sand, black stuff and cloudy water came out. I had to do this 8 times with the hose attached! Awkward & a mess but it did finally come out clear. BTW I did it through the hose & the bottom hole. On the last run through, after my whole bathroom is soaked including me, the hose popped out! I was cracking up! turns out on the 9050 you simply push down on the ribbed hose covering and it releases. This IS NOT in the manual either. But I'm happy my steamer's like new again & live & learn ;o)

My Steam Iron is Leaking Water

Unless it smells bad I wouldn't. Just always use distilled water. The unit is boiling the water so what comes out is already disinfected.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .

If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.

If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.

If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.
