Question about Black & Decker D2030 Iron

1 Answer

My Black and Decker D2030 shoots water out

I can't find my manual, and I don't know if I am using the correct type of water, the entire time I am using it, water spews out of the holes in the soleplate.

Any help is appreciated.

You need to be using distilled water, so that minerals will not build up on or in the soleplate. It sounds like the mechanism to control the flow of water (not sure what it is with that particular iron) to the soleplate, but while the iron is cold, hold it over a sink or something where water will not cause a problem and change the setting from steam to dry several times, then shake the iron to release trash. It should work then.

Philips steam iron no steam and red tap light is flashing even when filled up with water it's still getting hot and water is boiling but steam fiction not working as red light will not go out


It sounds like the flow holes are CLOGGED with scale inside. To clean it out:

1. Drain the water/steam out the pour-in shoot at the top of the handle, over the sink. Is any crap coming out?

2. Take some VINEGAR and pour it straight into the fill pour-in shoot. Don\'t dilute it. Fill up the IRON to full line. Let the vinegar SOAK the inside of the COLD iron for 15-20 minutes, by placing it FACE DOWN on an old bath towel, on a heat-resistant surface, such as a granite counter top, or metal cookie sheet. Don\'t put the towel on the ironing board!!! It may get stained badly. Let it sit, COLD for 20 minutes. You can swirell the vinegar around by shaking the iron.



Stand it up on its flat end, with the vinegar inside, still. Take some fresh vinegar and dip Q-tips into the vinegar and clean the slots and holes on the bottom plate. Any burn streaks or soil can be removed with wiping the plate with vinegar. After you clean all the holes and slots with vinegar from the outside, TURN ON THE IRON with the vinegar inside. The vinegar will heat up and should come out the holes. If any holes are not blowing vinegar/steam, clean them with q-tips again. Don\'t let all of the vinegar inside steam out!! Just heat it enough to make sure all of the holes are clean. Some white film may come out of the holes on to the face plate--it is calcium build-up from using tap water in the iron.

Now DUMP out vinegar inside the iron and reservoir through the pour-shoot You may see crud and crap coming out. Repeat the process of filling it up, steaming through the holes etc. until the vinegar comes out clear!!!

DON\'T use tap water in any IRON. Use distilled water, or even bottled drinking water (without flavoring, additives, of course). This will prevent corrosion and calcium build up in the iron.



ALWAYS completely drain the iron from the pour-in spout each time you are finished using it!! After pouring out the tank\'s water, you can set the iron to STEAM HIGH, and force any water inside to boil off and out of iron.! Never keep water in the reservoir or iron.

I set my iron, when hot, and done using it, with the pointed side DOWN in the sink drain to make sure it is dry.

So clean it with vinegar often, use bottled drinking water or better, distilled water and it will prevent this.

Steam comes out of the place where you put the water in


check the holes in the hot plate are not blocked with lime scale...sounds like you have a back pressure problem

see the instruction from your manual:
Check the owner's manual for your iron to learn the manufacturer's suggestions for cleaning, what water to use, and storage tips.
Soft-water systems add minerals that can harm an electric steam iron and your clothes so don't fill the iron with softened water. Instead, use filtered or distilled water.
2) if the iron does not heat a( test the power cord for open or defective b) and thermostat for adjust c) test the thermal fuse d) test the heating element for open.
God bless you

I have an older model and it is not shooting steam like it did when it was new. I have tried to contact a Rowenta repair center without any luck. Is it ok to use a deposit remover in just the tank if I...


Frankly, I never use or "need" to use deposit removers (vinegar or CLR) just because I only use filtered water in the tank and use all the water until the unit is totally dry, using the blast of steam to clear out as much as possible. I remove the blue reservoir entirely, wait for the iron to be totally cool to the touch, open up the trim knob and sloted metal screw with a penny and shake out the rest of the water as much as possible. I leave the whole works to dry overnight or longer and only then do we pack it back up for storate. Just my way, don't like putting acids or salts into any metal tank for safety reason.

Simac Stirelli 9000 steam iron spews rusty steam and smells like burnt apples


Your steam iron has been filled with 'tap' water that may have been contaminated (thus the smell). Rust develops more rapidely in Steam Iron chambers when distilled water is not used: to clean the 'enclosure' of the steam iron from rust and smell, over a sink or outdoor, fill 'cold iron' with a 50/50 water/vinegar and a teaspoon of bicarb, let it stand for about 10 mins, then turn the iron on and let it steam the mixture out while shaking the iron gently (DO NOT BURN YOURSELF! STEAM IS HOTER THAN BOILED WATER!). Refill and Steam flush again with Clean water (distilled preferred). Repeat the steps until the rust has been completely dissolved (check by steam ironing on clean pieces of disposible kitchen paper towel. Use the Power steam or Flush function of the Iron if available. Hope it helps!

Hi, I have been given a Euro-Pro Ironing Solution EP1005 without a manual where do I put water in for steam & how does the suction work Marj


Hi,
I don't know that system, but you're real lucky, that type of irons are fantastic! Most such have something that looks like a big black knob (you can see the same type e.g. on steam cleaners). You screw it counter-clockwise until it opens. Then you fill it up with water through the little hole. That type of valve is the one I have seen the most on pro systems, while my own home type generator iron only has a tank you simply pull off so you can fill it under the faucet. I have no idea how the suction works, except for it being real great as it helps draw the steam through the garment and away, so it gets dry instantly. I'm sure it also allows you to use a lot more steam, e.g. on tough wrinkles...

Why don't you go to the Euro-Pro website, mail them and ask for their help in getting a manual for it? Or maybe you already tried that? If you look around, you might be able to get a downloadable manual from one of the many manual sellers online...

Good luck!

I have 1700W Rowenta Focus and it is fairly new and water won't stay in it. I pour water in and leaks out all around the sole of the iron. What is going on? It never has been dropped, fallen off anything...


Possibly one of two problems.

1. Water tank has a hole in it.
2. Filler tube that go's into tank has come off.

If you are handy and have the correct type screwdriver bits, you may be able to open the iron and have a look.

Other wise it's bite the bullet and buy a new one. Wallmart or similar do some quite good cheep electrical stuff.

Brown water drips


Hi,
This may be down to contaminants in your water supply, or any "ironing water" you may be using.

There will be a build up inside the hotplate where the water is vapourised.

To clear this, refer to your manual or simply put on high steam setting, rest on it's heel, and wait for the indicator light to go out, then unplug, and hold horizontal over the sink. Press any steam boost buttons you have untill the iron is cold - and you just get water flowing out.

The best and cheapest water to use I've found - is the condensate from condensing tumble dryers. Which most people just tip away! It is condensed steam - so contains no minerals to fur up irons. If you don't have one - ask a neighbour for a few gallons.
