How do you fix a seal on a Rowenta Iron?

To try and seal the water leak will possibly render the appliance dangerous. I would speak to Rowenta and ask the question. They may well extend the warranty if you suggest it wasn't used for say a few weeks after purchase etc.

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.

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.

If you need parts, here is the Rowenta repair facility....
California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:

Mold in water reservoir

Run a couple of cycles of white vinegar through the iron allowing it to steam out. The odor may not be the most pleasant but it will clean out the mold as well as any build up that accumulates on the elements. Make sure you run two more cycles of just plain water through the iron on some scrap fablic or an old towel as any of the loose debris will come through the steam holes. After doing this you will find that it runs smoother than ever!

My Rowenta valet steamer 1550W trips my electricity every time I plug it in.

RCD or MCB that is tripping? If MCB the iron is overloading the circuit, usually a short circuit and is often related to the power cord. If RCD power is escaping from the circuit to ground and is usually caused by an internal water leak.

My Rowenta iron will not heat up. The yellow light

Inside the iron is a piece of thermal metal the is supposed to make contact with a small ceramic pin with a metal cap on it. I think this was intended to be a safety device but they fail and the iron will not heat up. The part does not seem to be available so easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing that forces this to make contact.

Why is my linen dress shiny after ironing at the linen setting?

The fine fibres at the surface of linen stand up like the bristles on a brush. Light coming into the fibres gets trapped. When you iron the linen, you flatten the fine fibres. Incoming light no longer gets trapped in the spaces between the fibres and instead is reflected (bounced back) like on a mirror. That is why linen looks shiny after ironing. To prevent this, use a damp cloth on top of your linen when ironing. This will flatten (iron) the linen material but not compress the fine fibres. Good look.

I have rowenta DB5080 iron and if I walk away for one minute it shuts down. Also it doesn't seem to retain its heat level for extended p eriods of time.

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.

How to fix water leaking out of bottom of Rowenta steam iron

I'm on my fifth Rowenta iron. The first four eventually started to leak. I keep buying Rowenta because I get the best results except for the leaking. I've been using filtered water even though the manual sas to use tap water. I will start o use tap water. The fifth one I bought was highly rated by Consumer Reports. If this new one starts to leak, I'll bring it back and buy a different brand.
