got this off the manual for the IS 7800

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

there is a reason for the wire shorting at that point
could be a dead short that caused the wire to burn or other serious problem
best advice is to take it to an appliance repair shop for a diagnosis and quote or to be safe simply junk it and get a new one

My Rowenta steamer is brand new never used before. I added the water it worked for 5 minutes then stopped and now it won't steam at all

Hello, Nadya -

Check the warranty information which came with your Rowenta steamer (probably in the owner's manual / instructions. Find out what you need to do to return the steamer for a working replacement.

Best wishes.

Rowenta iron Model DX8906 is shutting off in the middle of ironing. I remove the plug from the outlet, wait a couple of minutes, plug it back in and it works for a while. Then process begins anew.

sounds like it could be a thermal breaker to protect the iron from overheating, might be a thermastat problem or a broken element shorting unfortunately there are a few things that could cause your problem

My rowenta steamer has stopped steaming, it's a is6100, Ive had it for about 2 years.. I have rinsed out the bottom where the water tank connects with the bottom. I've noticed several black particules...

Having the same issue, if you have found a solution short of buying a new one, please share it...I am thinking surely there is a reset button but have not found it yet.

The trigger on the handle is not working and neither is the steamer HELP

Need a little clarification, do you feel/hear click when pressing trigger? No means the trigger inner actuator tab is broken...easy fix, just gently pry off cush rubber cover on handle from front to rear (gently to not scar up the works) and lift. Steamer not working? it getting hot? Steam building up in the boiler? Need a little more information here before I can proceed...

How to use a steamer.

  1. Plug in the steamer.
    • The steamer usually comes with a smallish padded square with a strap that slips over your hand. (If you so not have one of these, cut out a square from some stiff cardboard, pad it using cotton batting, and cover it with a heavy, smooth, waterproof or water-resistant material.)
  2. Make sure it is steaming nicely before you use it. You check by pulling the little trigger on the handle, and seeing how much steam issues when you release it. You actually want to use this while steaming as well, in order to release more steam when needed.
  3. Hang the garment, and slip the padded square over one hand.
  4. Place the hand with the square on the underside of the garment, and use it to keep the fabric smooth while you steam it.
  5. Use the steamer by holding the nozzle close to the garment, and pulling both it and the padded square in downwards strokes.

Rowenta Professional Iron - steam button suddenly stopped working

Have you tried descaling it? It may well be blocked up with limescale. Personally I only ever buy cheap irons and bin them when they go wrong! As you say-they are generally too expensive to repair.
