Wet steam coming out of iron

Thisiron is part of the I300 boiler and steam system. All of the components in the boiler portion have been replaced and it cycles on and off as designed. However, I am getting very wet steam out of the iron. I've tried the troubleshooting steps in the manual multiple times but still very wet steam. I note that there is a "thermostat 271 w/ manual reset" in the parts list for the iron but have been unable to find this reset button. If it is tripped I would assume the iron heating element will not heat and the steam is condensing to quickly in the iron and thus the wet steam.

You have to take part the iron by unscrewing the three bolts on the side handle with a small phillips driver. Then loose the allen screw on one side of the black thermostat wheel to unloosen it. Then take out the two bolt plastic protectors under the handle and unscrew the two allen bolts, carefully separate the top from the botton of the iron, carefully not to pry loose the cables from the top to the hot shoe.
On the back you will see a small white square box, that is the thermostat, which has a button on top, all you need to do is to push it in. This will make the iron heat up unless you have a thermostat failure (Black wheel with temperature indicators), which you will need to order the part and change it.

My Rowenta dg5030 is not producing steam. The iron plate gets hot and the boiler is hot. Just when you depress the steam button, nothing comes out. There is steam in the boiler. Thank you


The small transfer water-line to the steamer section has closed up. This is due to contamination of salts, accumulated calcium or other debris. Its baked on and not easy to remove. All I can tell you is: always use filtered water or distilled water in the NEW IRON that will replace this one.

How do I get the boiler on my rowenta steam generator to fill? I was given this model.


You should only use distiller water in the steamer. Never ever use tap water! This is what caused lime and scale build up.
Since it's to late, you have nothing to loose by trying this to descale the unit:

Put up to one cup of white vinegar into the reservoir. Fill 3/4 of the way with water. Turn unit on and let it heat up, but DO NOT RUN STEAM THROUGH THE LINE. Once heated up, turn unit off and let it set for hours. Drain and rinse well. Then run a water only batch through the steam cycle. There are companies that sell special de scaling solutions. But hopefully, the vinegar will work.

How do you clean a Bosch B25L (TDS2510GB) using the calc'n clean facility?


THE LINK DOESNT SEEM TO WORK SO HERE IS THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE MANUAL.
Calc'n clean
Cleaning the Boiler
To extend the life of your steam generator and to avoid any build
up of scale, it is essential that you rinse out the boiler after several
hours of use. If your water is hard, increase the frequency.
Do not use descaling agents for rinsing out the boiler, as they could
damage it.
1. Check that the appliance is cold and unplugged for more than 2
hours, and that the removable water tank (1) has been removed
from the steam generator.
2. Place your appliance on the edge of your kitchen sink.
3. Unscrew the boiler drainage plug (15) located on the bottom of the
appliance using a coin.
4. Holding your steam generator in an upside down position, and using
a jug, fill the boiler (in the base unit) with 1/4 litre of water
5. Shake the base unit for a few moments and then empty it completely
over a sink or bucket. To obtain the best result, we recommend
that this operation is done twice
6. Important: before reclosing, make sure no water remains in the
boiler.
7. Replace and tighten up the boiler drainage plug with a coin

My Rowenta Master Steam Generator - Steam button turns on but does not turn red or heat.


- First the good news, the service center in Concord is very good and would you believe they have new in the box Rowenta DG980 in stock!

California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:
their website is: http://www.californiaelectricservice.com/
or tech service: [email protected]

Now the not so good news. This model uses what I call a "flutter pump" that turns on when the boiler needs more water pumped in if the reservoir is dry and the red light comes on indicating it is out of water.
Generally, if you remove the blue water reservoir and turn on the unit, in about 5 minutes the boiler should have sufficient heat converting the residual water in the system to steam, for at least one or 2 "bursts of steam".

If all this works, then likely the $75 electronic printed ckt board driver detector is okay. It enables the flutter pump, fills the boiler with a few tablespoons of water to be converted to steam and repressurizes the steam system. It is the sequence logic this board does that you can use to determine the bad part, find and replace it yourself. There are many thermostats and sensors and without a schematic it is tough to reverse engineer.

The most expensive parts are the tank heater and sole plate elements followed by the ckt board (make sure you label all the connections & draw a color coded diagram before replacing this part) especially likely if the flutter pump does not turn on and everything else gets hot & steams is okay if unit less than 5-10 yrs old. BTW a new unit is $350 so you have to weigh your options and talk estimate for repair with repair tech if you go that route. A lot can be said if your unit is not that old, have used clear water, allowed steam to run dry (minimizing long term storage with water in unit), and cleaning the boiler as specified in manual. It is worth the price to repair OR replace. It is a great machine.

Trouble with Rowenta Irons


If your Rowenta DG 920 is chucking guff from the steam jets you need to flush it as per the instructions. ( ie. Flush every 10 uses ) If you haven;t done it for somewhile, you'll next need to expel the reamining guff with lots of steam. Then no more probs.

Instructions for use DiLonghi StiroMeglio compact iron (steam boiler Iron)


Is a long story but i make short.Don`t be afraid to leave your iron on.Is common to water tank iron to get working in more then 5-10 minutes.That machine are really safe since they do have more then 1 thermostat to control the water pressure.
How they work is pretty easy.The boil the water to a certan temperature and you know after certan F. the water become steam generatin pressure and steam.The thermostat control the heater and the electroswitch release the steam

If your in not making any steam after 5-10 minutes make sure you hear the electroswitch working.Sometimes they get cloght and even if the boil is under the pressure you can not get any steam at all
Good Luck

Hi, Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water. I shut the power off and unplug. Wait at least an hour or so, access the boiler tank plug on side & if it is cool to the touch, remove it using a coin (quarter), drain and flush the tank several times with the cleaning tube that came with unit or filtered/drinking bottled water several times over the kitchen sink. Finally, drain all the water completely out of the boiler (I leave the plug & cover off to making sure it is completely dry before putting everything back together, ready for the next time). After several use cycles of the above should clear out the debris. My 1st experience with a used DG980 had exactly the same problem. P.S. before ironing the first article, use several bursts of steam away from the ironing board surface to clear out any standing water that was is in the system. Hope this helps :O)

Steam from rowenta preassure iron and steamer


Hi, It is likely you have too much residual water in the iron or have mineral deposits from the tap water you have been using. Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water.
