Water Recommendations Tap water Rowenta irons are designed to be used with REGULAR TAP WATER (up to 12 grains of hardness). If your water is harder than this, Rowenta recommends mixing half tap water with half distilled water which reduces the hardness; or just use inexpensive bottled spring water.
• Never iron or steam clothes while they are being worn. • Before ironing for the first time fill iron and allow to heat. • The iron should be allowed to emit steam for 1 to 2 minutes while pressing the burst of steam button a few times to remove any impurities.
Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body. - Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate. - Carfully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the sole- plate (although this has no effect on glide of performance).
- In normal use a draggy coating may build up on the soleplate (starch, detergent build-up, burnt synthetic fibers). This can easily removed by using the Rowenta Soleplate Kit or a quality hot iron soleplate cleaner available at most stores. The Rowenta kit is also available through our website: www.rowentausa.com.
Solutions Check that iron is plugged correctly. Set the temperature control to a higher temperature. Move iron or shake it gently to reactivate. Fill the water tank. See section called “Steam Ironing” . Wait for the soleplate to reach the correct temperature.
