SOURCE: No steam

It appears that your rocker switch is broken, I am attempting to find a source for the switch and the screw driver that removes the screws holding the unit together

SOURCE: euro-pro EP1005 iron--iron heats -blower works-but no steam

You may not need a new iron, my wife's iron is doing the same thing. take the top of the ironing board off (you will need a torx t-20 security bit driver), under the tank is a connection that may have rusted out re-connet it and turn the iron on. Once it heats up, check the tank for leaks. The tank may need to be replace as well or try a 5-minute epoxy type glue on the leaks once it has cooled. If the tank leaks you will get not get enlugh pressure building up to get the steam.

How do i descale a team international steam pro 2600w iron


Buy a bottle of descaler and put it in the tank where you normally put the water. Put iron on hottest steam poison and run steam , topping up as required. Rinse thoroughly when finished and iron has cooled. Use distilled or demineralised water for steaming and the iron shouldn't require cleaning again.

What could be stopping the water in the holding tank not going in the steam tank on my Perfect Care Iron ?


most likely is mineral build up. drain out the water and replace with white vinegar, warm up the iron and allow it to sit until you see steam (several minutes to half an hour) if no steam, replace the iron.

Ssteams constantly without pressing steam trigger


Sounds like your trigger valve in the iron portion (not the tank) is jammed open. It could be from mineral deposits so maybe try running it with a solution of distilled water and a couple of tablespoons of vinegar in the tank. Wiggle the steam trigger to try to release any scaling that maybe present inside the valve. If your steaming from the iron stops, you've fixed the problem so let the iron cool and rinse the tank using ONLY DISTILLED WATER which anyone knows is the only type of water to be used in ALL appliances. Minerals in regular tap water kill appliances quickly. Never use tap or bottled drinking water even if the directions say it's okay. Iron some old rags or towels with a tank of distilled water to make sure no mineral deposits or staining steam comes out after cleaning.
If this fix doesn't work, you can buy a replacement iron portion online..try 1800Parts.com. It's cheaper than buying a whole new iron but you may need a repairman...I've never tried to fix this portion of my DG5030 iron.

Water leaking out of iron no steam I have a Hamilton Beach Steam Storm Model 14560 Lost manuel


The Use and Care Guide for the Hamilton Beach Iron can be downloaded here:

http://useandcares.hamiltonbeach.com/files/840091300.pdf

If water is leaking out of the iron:

• Do not overfill the water tank.

• If steam ironing, is Adjustable Steam Knob in a steam position that matches Temperature Control Dial steam range? Did the iron have enough time to preheat?
• If dry ironing, make sure the Adjustable Steam Knob is in the DRY IRON position.

The iron will not produce steam.


There are several thermal sensors around the tank, did you make sure they were not damaged or bent...they are "bi-metallic" strips, meaning they are two disimilar pieces designed to have different thermal expansion rates so at certain temp they separate (open) or move together (close) telling the control logic board to enable heater. Do make sure you did not bend them or over torque them when reattaching to their respective attachment points.

Place the iron soleplate, unplugged of course, in a shallow dish of water and descaler and leave it for a while. I have just done this with mine and its working a treat.
