Rowenta Irons | Answered on Jun 14, 2018

Replacement is the only practical "repair".

Rowenta Irons | Answered on Jun 08, 2018

probably can't fix
if you take it to an appliance repair ship for a quote , it will probably cost more than a new one
Spring water is very high in mineral content and that would cause the leak
best use DE-mineralized water as that is just pure water and is what is recommended for irons

Have you made sure the steam setting is "on" ? Are the jets clogged? (white dry material in holes of hot side of iron).

Defective heating element or control circuit

Rowenta Irons | Answered on May 29, 2018

Hi, it sounds like the steam trigger has a broken pin on the end inside the handle. Unplug the unit from the wall and let it cool. I found out that you can remove the main rubber cover by gently prying it up from the front and pivoting it up to the cord end and lifting it off. You will see the trigger snaps in, but look at the finger end going under the microswitch that activates the "Burst of Steam" is probably broken. You can get another one from California Electric Service in Concord CA; or you can epoxy a small 3/4" by 1/8" x 1/16" piece of aluminum, bent at 45 degs into trigger hollow, approx 1/4" sticking out to actuate the micro-switch and after a day or two for the epoxy to harden it should work just fine.

Hello, Ellen -

You may find this YouTube video instructive:
Skip the initial advertisement.

You will find other methods for cleaning a sticky iron here:

Since the iron sole plate stickiness problem is not limited to Rowenta brand irons, it is easy to find solutions. How did I find the information? I just used my favorite search engine (Google) and used this search phrase:
iron sticking

How difficult is that?

Best wishes.

The steam not only removes wrinkles, it freshens the fabrics - making them look cleaner. You can use this steamer on clothing, bedding and table linens and also to remove.
