Hi, I need a replacement trigger for inside the handle of above iron but can't get one through rowenta or the people listed on their site as they say I have to send in the entire iron as the tank comes as whole, the iron part comes as a whole part and something else. I know damn well someone somewhere has the parts that make up these whole parts but not sure who. Can anyone help? I did find one place who said they would take 4 weeks (from krups??) but lost their details.

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?...is it getting hot? Steam building up in the boiler? Need a little more information here before I can proceed...
Hi Mary, sounds like something jammed in the trigger mechanism or the microswitch button is stuck in the housing. Unplug the iron, let it cool. Gently pry up the blue cushion from the handle from the front towards the rear cord, you will see the trigger, the actuator tab and the microswitch button (nib) that should be sticking out, if it is flush with the housing it is jammed down. That switch is replaceable, but I don't know how savy you or your appliance servicer are at replacing it. Here is where I get my parts:
I would be more inclined to believe the trigger steam switch is jammed or hung up in the housing. It is a small micro-switch inside the handle under the trigger actuator. You can pry up the blue cushion from the handle from the front towards the back cord using an orange stick or screwdriver but not damage stuff. The button nib may be jammed against the switch hole/housing. Look here for getting parts...
The iron uses a thermal cut off that will disconnect power to the element when the top temperature is reached.
In your case the thermostat is shorted inside, and will never cut off.
The part can be ordered calling Roventa at the customer support number listed on the owners manual. Alternatively, putting Rowenta Parts in a search engine like Google or Yahoo, you will get a list of Rowenta parts distributor in your area.
I had the same problem. I found the trigger button at SmallAppliances.com. You'll have to pry off the rubber grip, and unscrew one or two screws on the handle, bu the trigger inserts neatly into the space. Screw it back together, snap on the rubber grip and it will work like new. Below is the part number & price.
Rowenta DG0123 Knob Trigger, Blue $9.99 (plus shipping)
Watch out, the next thing that will go is the on/off switch. Once it starts getting difficult to turn the unit on or off, just plug and unplug it until you get the new part, or you will be stuck one day and need the iron and go to turn it on and it wont start.
The part is $20, and the same site has it available.
Hi, there is probably a something broken in the moulded plastic trigger assembly (there is a plastic broken finger that actuates a micro-switch under the rubber handle cover). If you are so inclined, use an orange stick and gently pry up the rubber handle cover on either side from the front to the rear cord end to access, inspect and troubleshoot. I am in SoCal and use the California Electric website to obtain parts or go to the Rowenta home website to locate useful manual information, PDF reader and dealer near you.
