Question about Rowenta DG5030 Iron
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

Can you remove the steam button if you can fill with water heat to maximum and holding over sink remove steam button rod this will clean the steam traks but be careful this gets very hot.

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.

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.
