Best way to find out is to have a good look at it and decide whether perhaps it is too cold or there is a water blockage. Only you will know that.

Its a laundry lovers friend and you will save so much time as you breeze through your weekly mountain of ironing with ease. ... One of my most loved features with the Polti is the lock feature at the front of the iron

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.

Cleaning a Laundry Iron
Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it, when it has cooled a little, sit it face plate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the sole plate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

For just the sole plate, you can use oven cleaner, or sit in a dish with household ammonia overnight. Put the dish in a garbage bag to reduce the fumes, or put it in your garage or garden shed.

I had the same problem. I found the trigger button at 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.

Press the self clean button , hold it there, and gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowel. CAUTION: Keep clear of the escaping water and steam. Water and steam will wash scale and dust through the soleplate, and into the basin or bowl. When the water tank is empty, release the self clean button .
