There are two cause. One the boiler resistance doesn´t turn of because of snap disc or bimetal thermostat fault or because a coil in the working valve (security valve). But if you can heard a click of opening movement of valve when you push the button it is able to be a thermostat.
Your iron probably has tamper proof outer screws with a center pin...don't be intimidated. First, try to remove the screws with a tiny screwdriver from an eyeglass repair kit. If that doesn't work, get a Torx T-20 nutdriver attachment.
Please don't take Landsend advice, as it contadicts this whole "fixya" site! Let's keep it going by not giving in to this throw away world! Some people can't afford a $20 iron @ Wally's! All the solutions above (besides Landsend) are on it!! Your City water is still too, hard for these delicate, devices. Filtered, as Alan Serna mentioned, is the way to go!! Dump your water out of your iron, when not using-maintenance is key, for everything, even your families!! : ) Have a G8 day!
Remove the tank by pressing the button on the front and slide it out. Remove the little filter either rotating to the right or left and lift it. Fill with water to the mark and slide the tank back until it snaps in place. Good luck
I have submittted the photos to one of the expert gurus on fixya and I cannot remember his name. If I remember correctly it is not a screw but a plastic pin (3) that sticks up fom the plate and is secured by a circular disc with fingers in the center that push up when they slide it on and one must open these fingers up, unuslly one will do so it will release. If you try to force it off it will/may snap off the pin. If some one can help you, you might want to get two of those $1.00 screwdriver kits and have one person, or a vise, hold the iron and the two of you slide the small flat screwdrives under the fingers and pry up together, if you can get to it. Remember the one I had was glued together with minimal screws throughout.I have never seen an appliance so difficult to access for the simplest repair. Good luck and God Bless.
I bought this model from Costco and followed the instructions and tried using the picture on the box. You may have trouble, or at least be confused, if you try to attach like the picture on the package because the hose in the box is not exactly as pictured. The hose you get does not have that extra ribbed part around the end that attaches to the console. Therefore try the other end and you should be able to attach. Once you figure that out make sure you "lock" the hose into place. If not steam will escape from the loose installation and may scald you if you reach down.
Is a long story but i make short.Don`t be afraid to leave your iron on.Is common to water tank iron to get working in more then 5-10 minutes.That machine are really safe since they do have more then 1 thermostat to control the water pressure.
How they work is pretty easy.The boil the water to a certan temperature and you know after certan F. the water become steam generatin pressure and steam.The thermostat control the heater and the electroswitch release the steam
If your in not making any steam after 5-10 minutes make sure you hear the electroswitch working.Sometimes they get cloght and even if the boil is under the pressure you can not get any steam at all
