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,
Lee

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.

Steam irons can become clogged with mineral deposits. Use distilled water in the iron to minimize these deposits.

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.

There is a build up of white granular substance in the vents on the bottom. Can't find my manual, but feel pretty sure that this iron said distilled water is not necessary. Now that this happened, is...


Distilled water is not necessary but is recommended as plain tap water in many areas have too much mineral/calcium (the white deposit) that will eventually clog your iron steam vents and container!
You do not need to toss your iron!
To clean the deposit, with iron cold, fill your iron with a 50/50 mixture of clean water and kitchen white vinegar, gently shake the iron, let it stand for say 15 minutes and then turn iron on to a high setting so that you can use shot of steam of cleaning cycle above a kitchen sink. You might need to do this a couple time to remove the inbedded white scale. Wipe the face of the iron with a clean cotton rug as required.
Finally, do the same 'steam' cleaning process with clean water to remove any trace of vinegar which is fairly corrosive.
Instead of the Vinegar mixture, you can also buy an expensive commercial steam iron descaling product from most supermatkets...
Hope the information is useful: let me know how you go. Good luck and be careful as steam against the skin can be pretty painful!

No steam


What you need to do is clean out the steam orifice. (The tiny hole the steam comes out) When water is turned to steam it leaves behind mineral deposits, (Iron, Calcium) Especially if you have "hard" water in your area. Here's what you do. Add some CLR, (Calcium,Lime Remover) to the water you put in the iron, let it sit a while, laying flat, then drain the water out. You want to get the nozzle, to, holding the iron upside down, try to immerse the steam nozzle for a couple of seconds in the CLR or drip some directly on it. You can buy this product in most stores. It works well and fast. Dip your showerhead in it too, you'll be suprised at how it improves water flow. It is safe as long as you follow the instructions.

The iron has plenty of water in the reseviour but will not steam. I have press the steam button and steam comes out but it will not steam otherwise


Your iron may be due for a cleaning. After awhile the ports inside the iron become clogged with mineral deposits.

Try using a mix of 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. place the mix in the reservoir and allow the iron to heat up for steam until the reservoir is empty. Then do a second round with plain distilled water. Clean the the iron plate of residue after it cools.
If the vinegar mix does not work (and you can do the mix a few times) try using a product such as "Lime Away" or "CLR" to dissolve the deposits. Hope this helps.
