Irons - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


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.

High iron content certainly won't do your iron any good. In some cases, only distilled water can be used.

I think there's no fuse in this steam iron. If the iron does not work, the thermostat or the power cord may be damaged.

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.

They are built to shut off after about 30 sec or so if the iron is not moving and the iron is in pressing position (sole plate down). They shut off if they are not moving and standing with the sole plate vertical, in about 5 minutes. If you move the iron (like ironing) they reheat. If it doing something else the electronic control is defective. It is cheaper to replace than repair.

A power surge caused by plugging it in burned out the "dial".
