Steam leaking from around the cap--Rowenta DG5030

Steam is escaping from around the cap. This is the second time this has happened to this iron. I called and ordered a small green rubber washer to go onto the screw cap...didn't work. Then I bought a complete new cap..it worked for about a year. Now, it is happening again. I bought another new cap, but it is still squirting steam when the cap is screwed on. This is a real pain because I iron a lot. I did notice that the black, flat, rubber washer that surrounds the base screw in part seems to be more worn on one side than the other. The metal receiving end of the screw protudes more on one side than the other. It seems to be in that area where the steam is escaping. Is there anything I can do to fix this myself? I don't want to ship this heavy steamer/iron. Jane

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak

I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.

SOURCE: What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron?

The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

My iron is not releasing steam at all. The motor is going but nothing coming out. It has done this previously but only for a couple if minutes. Will not work at all and only just over a year old.


I suspect that the iron is clogged with mineral deposits. This happens when ordinary tap water is used - more so if your tap water is "hard". First and foremost, buy a gallon of DISTILLED water.

Cleaning it is very much like cleaning an auto drip coffee maker. Empty the iron into the sink. The first method is to pour white vinegar into the reservoir and set the iron to the hottest setting. Tip the iron flat to allow steam to escape. Press any buttons that allow blasts of steam, too. The vinegar will dissolve minerals on the inside of the iron and clogging the holes on the bottom of it. If all holes are cleared after the first time, flush DISTILLED water thru the iron. If not cleared, you can try this second method: Fill it with vinegar again and leave it sitting flat in the sink - unplugged - over night. In the morning, refill with vinegar as needed and try the first method once more. It should be clear at this point. Flush with DISTILLED water.

You can prevent this from happening again by using DISTILLED water only in the iron. There are NO minerals in DISTILLED water, which are left in the iron when water is boiled off inside it.

Steam comes out the filler cap on the water base on my Rowenta DG5030


WIre brush the caps screw threads and replace the O Ring ASAP.
DOn't use the iron until you get a new O ring and they need to be the orange/red rubber ones they are able to withstand the hot steam black o rings at home depot won't last.

I am having issues with my steam generator iron. I used it today and after heating up steam was pouring out from the screw on cap. Put on new green rubber ring and I can iron with steam until I sit on base...


I think lime and calcification are the culprit. Use some "CLR" at Home depot, can decalcify the build up on your irons pressure cap.

I have the Rowenta Steam Station. Love it!

HI I have a Bosch Sensixx B25L iron. Steam isn't coming out of holes, seems to be escaping from edge of iron. Handle very hot (Too hot to hold on to), burns your hand when steam button is pressed


I just fixed mine - it had exactly the same problem.

First, though, check it's not within the Bosch TWO year guarantee; if it is, they'll either fix or replace it.

If it's not under guarantee then the problem is probably the rubber tubing that connects the external steam tube to the hotplate. You'll need to dismantle the iron. Mine had split right next to the spring clip that holds it on. I shortened it, clipped it back on and all is now well.

How to put water in the Tefal pro 2500


This type of iron is called a steam station iron.
The box is the water tank and it is this that you need to fill with water. You should be able to find a small spout on the water tank in order to fill it. These irons produce a huge amount of steam and should make the ironing a breeze once you get used to it.
