Question about Conair DPP4000 Iron

Burst of Steam

The burst of steam button isn't functioning. I have followed the instructions exactly in making sure that the iron is set at a high temp setting. Thank you for any solutions offered.

    The regular steam while ironing works perfectly. But, the button for an extra burst of steam for tough wrinkles/vertical steaming doesn't do anything.

If no steam at all, there is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged...fill it with vinegar and water (50/50) and allow to soak 24 hrs, then reheat then shake vigorously to drain then rinse then retry

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!

My Tefal iron stop steam GV 8150

Hello :

1: Make sure there's enough water in the tank if the iron won't steam. Fill the tank up .
2:Check that the iron is set to a steam setting. Some of the settings are dry and won't create steam.
3:Set the temperature dial to the shaded setting which represents steam. You'll see a little dark cloud-type icon with raindrops as opposed to a white cloud with a stripe through it. The dark cloud represents moisture (steam), and the white cloud with the stripe through it represents no steam.
4:Allow the iron to heat up for a while and to emit steam for a couple of minutes while pressing the extra-long burst button a few times. That should get rid of any impurities which can cause blockages. Try this if the iron hasn't been used for a while and steaming is intermittent.
5:Iron horizontally. Steam is only generated when the iron is horizontal.
6:Use the maximum steam setting when the iron is set to its maximum temperature setting.
7:Let the iron get to a high temperature before expecting steam. If the soleplate isn't hot enough, the water won't turn to steam and will in fact drip, spit or leak from the soleplate. Some Rowenta irons have an anti-drip system, which will turn off the steam when ironing at a low temperatures. Turn the temperature up, if needed.

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:
