Question about Black & Decker Steam Xpress AS250 Iron with Auto Shut-off

Need take apart instructions for a Black & Decker SteamXpress

Need to get inside to clean out some mineral deposits, fix the steam button and glue a couple of joints. Works well. Can't see tossing it! I've got the right screwdriver, but even after the screws are out, there must be a number of snaps that aren't readily discernable...

Help?

    Following the instructions for disassembling my mac mini, I've been able to open the iron case almost completely - except for one area at the steam and spray buttons. Any clues? I'm unable to find ANY little tangs to loosen. An answer will get take-apart instructions.

There is a link to the manual for your iron. Also just so you know the iron is available for 19.99. It should not nee anything besides doing the self cleaning often. The procedures are in the manual. If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,

Hi.
As a suggestion, I would put some white vinegar 1 part to 5 parts water through the iron to clean away the mineral deposits. Let it soak cold for an hour or so. If it has just stopped steaming action  from the steamer button, heat the iron up and put plenty of action through the button also. It will have mineral deposits there also. As for any instructions on service, there will be none in print. I suggest running around the edges of the plastic cover parts with a guitar pic(if you have one) or something of a flexible springy nature. The clips at the edges can generally be released in the manner. Good luck
regards robotek

    Have you been able to get under the grey plastic/rubber piece on the top of the  handle. It looks like there is still a screw underneath that. I would be looking there judging by the picture you have posted. Let me know how you go.

Can spring water be used instead of distilled?


The reason that distilled water is suggested it is the mineral deposits that are in the water.
Any other kind of water than distilled has more, and possibly a lot more minerals than distilled.
That means, it might depend on how soon you can no longer use your iron, as it is clogged with mineral deposits.
How much minerals are in the spring water is anybody's guess, some more, some less.
God bless your efforts.

How do I clean a not self clean ,quick press s506a , not self cleaning black and decker steam iron


Most steam irons can be cleaned deposits by emptying the water and replacing with white vinegar. Let it heat up and use the iron as normal - but on cloth rags instead of clothing. The vinegar breaks down and dissolves the mineral deposits inside that are responsible for sputtering and stains. You can reduce or even eliminate these deposits from forming by using distilled water instead of tap water in the iron - otherwise - run vinegar thru it when it starts acting up. The vinegar "trick" works great on coffee makers, too.

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.

The steam button is stuck on (pushed in) but there's no steam.


follow this steps. God bless you
Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

My Philips steam iron Easy Care 3232 oozes brown liquid through holes when used on steam. How can I clean it?


Periodic Descaling of the iron will help reduce this.
Mineral deposits in the water will remain inside the iron after being converted to steam. This builds up over time as scales unless cleaned.

For descaling instruction, refer to manufacturer.

STEAM ONLY COMING OUT OF TOP HOLES SWAN S15040


The iron is probably clogged up from mineral deposits in the water. Fill the iron with a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar. Heat the iron and let it set for awhile. Then steam the solution through the iron. Repeat the process if this does not work. If the Vinegar and water does not work, then try a product such as Lime Away or CLR to remove the deposits. After the iron is cleaned out, try using distilled bottled water in the iron, to reduce the mineral build up.
Hope this helps you!

How to clean inside of Iron?


Unplug the iron! Allow iron to COOL completely!!! Wipe soleplate with damp soft cloth or damp soft sponge. NEVER use abrasives, cleansers, scouring pads that will scratch iron and cause discolorations. The iron has an Auto Clean Steam Valve feature that will prevent most mineral and lint build up everytime you turn the Temp. Select Dial to "0" after use. (Ref. - page 11 of the instruction pamphlet). If you have a really bad hard-water build up problem, use a commercial Steam Iron Cleaner and follow the instructions exactly! Repeat every 3-6 months and you should be fine. Good luck!

Short circuted


It must be disassembled. To do that you need special a screwdriver.When you have carefully disassembled it, all ruber seals and gaskets must be thoroughly cleaned from water salt deposits and refitted correctly because may be difficult to find spare parts for replacement.
i.e. If you have not the experience to carry out the repairment by yourself, it is better to think about buying a new one.
See "Note" at the site below. Good Luck !!
