Rowenta Steam generator dg5030 parts

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.

    you have located someone or have found the part to fix it.

I spoke with smallappliances.com on 6/15/09 and the iron trigger is not available separately for this model yet. you have to buy the whole iron unit which is about 85.00

I've taken it apart and have the trigger switch out, i'm going to compare it to the switch for my other rowenta that is available and see if it is the same shape/size. I'll report back!

    I have the same problem with my 2nd Rowenta Steam iron, guess I did not learn with the 1st one DG980 . same issue the trigger button broke and was not able to replace it at that time, so I replace the iron with another version of a Rowenta steam Iron and same thing on this Iron DG5030 trigger knob has broke and called several place and they tell me I have to replace the entire unit.... Guess this is the only way Rowenta stays in business by robbing us..... I also will never buy another Rowenta Iron.

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?...is it getting hot? Steam building up in the boiler? Need a little more information here before I can proceed...

DG-980 Iron: The button to use the steam is stuck. I was ironin...


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:

California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:
their website is: http://www.californiaelectricservice.com/
or tech service: [email protected]

Please keep us informed as to your progress resolving this...

I have a few Rowenta DG980's that won't stop steaming


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...

Iron got really hot, like it overheated, then the light stayed on, but the heat seemed to go off and water came out the bottom of the iron. What do I do now?


Hi.

The thermostat must be replaced.

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.

Won't steam


I know it's a silly question but are you pressing the trigger in the handle? If you are then the solenoid valve may have failed

Steam button not working


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.

No steam comes out of iron


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.
