Must I use distilled water?


Yes, it is ALWAYS best to use distilled water in any iron, no matter what a specific manufacturer may, or may not, say. The reason is simple: There's nothing in distilled water to contaminate your iron, and as a result, you will not have stained clothes.

If your iron is already dirty from using tap water... clean with mixture of vinegar and water by pouring mixture into iron, bring to full temp for a few mins, flush through steam vents, and rinse with distilled water. You may need to invert your iron to purge the water from tank as well. Repeat as many times as needed until perfectly clean.

Once clean, NEVER use any other type of water in you iron. Period. Always use distilled water. Hope this helps...

Iron blows trip switch when turned on


The Iron has shorting in the device. Replace the iron with a new one. Dangerous to use as is.

My iron temp cuts off and only stays at a low temp even thou it is at it highest settings regards Mike


It is possible that the BIMETTALIC cut off is OFF set and so the cut off happens vry early .
You might need to remove the unit and get access to see if this can be set to higher level- tighter- so that the bimetal takes more heat to cut off. This will provide you a higher heat.
You can calibrate using the highest/lowest settings.

I have a Bosch b52l iron, when i turn on the steam button, it cuts off the power, what could it be


It could be the iron itself (it may have a short circuit in it) and the circuit breaker trips when the steam switch is turned on.

Option 1)
Another option is that the entire circuit that that circuit breaker is controlling is overloaded. What other outlets / applicances / lights are disabled when that circuit breaker trips? You may have to iron only when those other applicances on that circuit are not being used.

Option 2a) Your outlet may be damaged and causing your circuit breaker to trip when the high current STEAM setting is set.
- OR -
Option 2b) the circuit breaker is damaged and is tripping too easily. Only replace with a similarly sized circuit breaker (15 amp lis likely but is says right on the breaker).

Try the solutions in that order.

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!

How to open to get water inside


No need to open iron! You just unplug the iron. Hold the iron upright. Using a clean cup, pour water into the "open" WATER FILL HOLES just above or in front of the Temp. Select Dial. Watch the water window on the left. When water level reaches MAX, you are filled. Plug in and use. Refill as needed. Ref. - Page 8 in the instruction pamphlet.

Steam iron trips the main fuse


It could be your iron drawing too much current but it sounds more likely that you have a weak circuit breaker on that circuit. You might try the iron on a different house circuit to confirm if its actually the iron or the house breaker giving you problems.

Cleaning a self cleaning iron


Fill the Iron with water but keep the water level below the max line. Plug in the iron and set the temp to 6 and stand iron on it's heel and allow to heat for 3 mins. Now unplug the iron and take it to a sink move and Hold the variable steam dial in the CLEAN position. There may be some hissing and spitting while cleaning so be careful. Continue to hold the dial in the clean position until all the water has emptied. If necessary rock side to side and back to front to get all the water out.When finished release the steam dial plug in the iron and heat for about 2 mins to dry out the remaining water and unplug.
