    My machine lost steam after a few tears of use. I just took it apart and cleaned it. Afterward, it is like new and the steam is coming on strong again. I searched internet and there wasn't a good enough step by step guide to take it apart and clean it, the reason of your machine loosing steam is that the tubes inside were clogged up by the scales of the water. Using the descaling agent or vinegar just won't be able to solve the problem. The only way is to promote and give it a good cleaning rub and flush. so....

    Here are the steps:

    1. Use a cutter to slide in the wheel covers and pop them open.

    2. Use force to pop the wheel open, it is secured by four hooks in the inner wheel.

    3. Unscrew the two philips by the wheels and use a long Philips to unscrew the one securing the two side penals, there is also another one on the bottom of the machine, so altogether four screws.

    4. Use force to pop the two side panels open, best place is around the two round buttons at the bottom holding the poles, when you open you know what I am talking about.

    5. Unscrew three screws on each side, total of six

    6. Now you can see the inside, my problem was the scales clogged up the small tube connecting the water intake to the water heater, (both ends of the small plastic tube). So you unclamp the two clips holding the tubes connecting the water intake to the water heater. Also you want to unclamp the bigger tube connect the water heater to the steam tube.

    7. Clean the two tubes, my small tube was full of scales. Also I used a spray bottle to flush out the scale inside the small tube end of the water heater. Put a towel to catch the scales while you flush water from the top of the heater flush out the scales in the small tube end of the heater. Repeat the same process to flush the water intake connection.

    8. Put everything back, and you will be able to use your beautiful IS 9070 for a few more years with full steam ahead.

    It is a good machine for me and I wouldn't mind spending an hour to clean it which can last for a few years. Next time around it should take me less time to do it.

    Good luck!

    Thanks. I’d got mine open before reading your directions; it was a trip trying not to break any tabs, but a combination of small tools and persistence worked.

    White calcite is everywhere in tubes and boiler nozzles, so am going to remove the boiler to flush with vinegar and faucet pressure at our utility sink. Interesting that the online parts diagrams render so poorly and the boiler isn’t an offered part. The trick is to use distilled water or be sure to run the machine every few months so minerals can’t settle out en masse and lines stay flushed.

    Would be nice to have a wiring diagram, as in unhooking the 6 wires from the boiler I mixed up two of them before marking them or taking a photo as I’d intended. Now I’m not sure which of the 2 goes on which male connector. Will have to trial and error boiler operation before complete reassembly.

    Okay, I got the boiler apart and the translucent “O” ring in one piece. But the cast aluminum(?) inside has a lot of corrosion damage. I used vinegar and CLR and a dental scraper to clean it up as much as possible. The core tube is eaten away in places. I think it will still work when the parts are dry and I reassemble things, but I’d really rather get a new boiler. Has anyone found them available anywhere, cause I haven’t?

SOURCE: My Rowenta Garment Steamer will not steam up.

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.

MAKE SURE THE POWER CABLE IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

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

SOURCE: Is there a product to run through a rowenta pro

To start with, use distilled water for steaming. This will prevent calcium build-up. I buy bottles of distilled water for ironing/steaming only. I have never had calcium build-up from using distilled water for ironing/steaming. Do not use tap water!!!

You can buy some CLR (stands for Cacium, Lime & Rust) (can be found at Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, etc.). You can run this product through your steamer to eliminate build-up.

Good luck!

SOURCE: rowenta commercial steamer

got this off the manual for the IS 7800

CLEANING
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
descale.
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
water.
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.

SOURCE: on and off petal switch not working

When I took mine apart I noticed the switch had melted near the contacts. This makes me not want to fix it, but instead, look for a better model. Hope this helps.
