Irons - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


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.

Is it a power on light? an illuminating instrument light? Many of these units have gas-filled (Neon) type lights in them and when they start to fail they flicker most times before they go completely. Not to worry though it doesn't mean the unit itself is failing. If it is the light you'll just have to do as my mother did back in the day and lick the tip of your finger and quickly tap the face (Hot Part) If hot it will make a sttt sound.

Pour in some vinegar (half) and some water (half) in the machine. Turn it on and let it run a bit. Make sure to do it outside since it smells badly. After that, rinse a few times before use.

Ok. This thing is caused by scaling. If the steam generator runs out of water the sensor thinks the tank is empty and causes the machine to go to standby (basically switch off -- orange light comes on). The solution: Open the machine and clean it.

MAKE SURE THE POWER CABLE IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. There are six screws ( phillips - you will need a long screwdriver). Two of them are hidden under the wheels (just pop off the rollers and you will see the screws)

2. Open the steam generator (there are four screws) and be very careful with the 'O' ring -- you damage it and you can say good bye to the machine. Clean it if you see scaling. The amount of scaling present would indicate how hard your water was. This itself may not be cause of the problem but now that you openend the machine, you might as well as clean it for better efficiency.

3. Disconnect the hose to the steam generator (it has two circlips) and clean it. Mine had hard deposit of scales preventing the water reaching the steam generator.

Re assemble it.

Good Luck

You can probably buy them in a set. I’m sure one will fit.

Most likely it is a broker electrical wire that makes random contact ( in / out) when the iron is being moved. You may have to disconnect the iron, take the upper covers out, look for broker wires and replace the wire
