SOURCE: My Rowenta Garment Steamer will not steam up.

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

Have you checked the float?
Sometimes that gets stuck, or collects mineral and stays in the last position.

SOURCE: MY problem seems to be

Steam irons need a certain amount of mineral in the water for them to operate properly, but too much mineral, iron, or organic matter can be disaster. the loss of steam is from usually from a barrier or o-ring or some sort of insulating material it has to be sealed because if it is not the the steam will not build up the pressure required for adequate cleaning power is your iron leaking any water anywhere? if you have a water leak try to seal up the leak if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember when our chat has concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again Rick

SOURCE: MY ROWENTA 1550W UPRIGHT STEAMER NO LONGER

I have a Rowenta garment steamer. It will turn on but no steam comes out. Does it need to be cleaned from the build up of iron, etc. from the water? If so, how do I go about this?

Hot hose but no Steam


Don't know this machine but if it has brass jets on the head stick a pin or a needle into them twisting while pushing in and out, some times these jet block up. other wise undo hose and blow through it hope I have helped in some way.

Is there a product to run through a rowenta pro garment steamer to eliminate build-up?


To start with, use distilled water for steaming. This will prevent calcium build-up. I buy bottles of distilled water for ironing/steaming only. I have never had calcium build-up from using distilled water for ironing/steaming. Do not use tap water!!!

You can buy some CLR (stands for Cacium, Lime & Rust) (can be found at Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, etc.). You can run this product through your steamer to eliminate build-up.

Good luck!
