Question about Rowenta Irons

I am not sure what the problem is, but Rowenta recommends that you use only clear or filtered drinking water only. Make sure to remove the reservoir and use the burst of steam to empty it out completely. When cool, access the steamer drain hole and fill and flush the tank over the kitchen sink or use the cleaning kit following the instructions. After a few of these use and purge cycles the system should be clean in a few weeks.

cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend

be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:

by releasing container lock and pulling up.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.
