Tip & How-To about Sunbeam 4214 Iron

Disassemble?

I recently had a problem with the steam button. It somehow during normal use came off its track in the handle and was stuck down in the "slot". After several searches online and this site i tried a knife along all the edges trying to figure out how to disassemble the iron. Well one quick flick with my knife to the side of the steam button and it came out. Well the surprise was the screw under these buttons. Hopefully this can help someone looking to disassemble the iron when they have problems.

What can be done about leaking steam?


ensure your iron steam button is not set into perminent steam function. leaving the iron with the point of the iron pointing upwards should reduce steam to the handle. also the iron may need to be descaled to ensure any steam switch funtion is not stuck in an on position.

continuous steam and green light flashing on my tefal steam generator iron.


I found this on a site and it works!! Put 50/50 mix of water and viniger in your iron, let it run, after a while start pressing the steam button, you may have to do this a few times, but it will eventually stop the light flashing, then the steam function will return to normal. You'll need to clean the iron out a few times afterwards

DG-980 Iron: The button to use the steam is stuck. I was ironin...


Hi Mary, sounds like something jammed in the trigger mechanism or the microswitch button is stuck in the housing. Unplug the iron, let it cool. Gently pry up the blue cushion from the handle from the front towards the rear cord, you will see the trigger, the actuator tab and the microswitch button (nib) that should be sticking out, if it is flush with the housing it is jammed down. That switch is replaceable, but I don't know how savy you or your appliance servicer are at replacing it. Here is where I get my parts:

California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:
their website is: http://www.californiaelectricservice.com/
or tech service: service@californiaelectricservice.com

Please keep us informed as to your progress resolving this...
