Water leak from fill button

Greetings! I've got water that leaks out of the button that gets depressed for filling the iron with water. I've tried using spring water exclusively, to no avail. I drain the water from the iron after each use and refill as necessary. Any other suggestions?

    The water leaks from the handle. I can only fill the resevoir to below the handle to prevent dripping.

    Can hear the pump trying to fill the iron, but does not seem to be transferring any water

The button may have been sealed with an O-ring at one time. It may have fallen off inside the reservoir

What direction do I turn the button to open the Rowenta Superpress 050? I have read that I need to push in the button but it was donated to me and I need to fill up the reservoir.

To open the Rowenta Superpress 050 iron, you should first unplug the iron from the power source for safety. Then, locate the water reservoir button on the top of the iron. The button is usually located near the back of the iron.
To open the reservoir, you need to push the button inward and turn it counter-clockwise. This will release the reservoir from the iron's body, allowing you to fill it with water.
After filling the reservoir with water, you can reattach it to the iron by aligning it with the body and turning the button clockwise until it clicks into place.
Remember to never fill the reservoir above the maximum fill line, as this can cause the iron to leak water or even cause damage to the iron.

I just bought this iron in March 2015. The iron leaks water all of my clothes when I press the steam button. I have it set on the highest setting for iron and steam.

Hi,
Increasing the temperature setting can ease this issue, however it is important to consider the type of fabric you are ironing.

1st option: Fill the iron up, and let the iron stand as the iron heats for little while before using. This may allow more of the water to be converted to steam.

2nd option: You could try using deionised/distilled water in your iron.

If you find that the water leaks out sporadically, it may be worth pushing the steam button once or twice before applying it to clothing.

I have attached a link with a little bit more information How to Stop Steam Iron From Dripping

Steam not working on iron then lots of water pouring out of holes

fill water chamber with vinegar and let it sit for 24 hours.
empty vinegar - fill with distilled water - turn on and press the steam button to clean the holes in the plate of mineral deposits which accumulate from using tap water. after a few shots of steam all should be clear - empty and refill with distilled water and it should be good to go.

It is leaking water when ironing all the time to the point that it stains the clothes

Remove the top part and check for the leak. If plastic has been damaged then you must use some good bonding material to close the gap/leak. However if the leak seems to come from over filling , redduce level of water, or from a gasket on the filling part.
Please look carefully into this in the ironing position with the power OFF.
Hope this helps . Good day

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:

Rowenta Steam Iron Leak

I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.
