Question about Philips GC 8220 Iron
Hi there. I have a problem with my Philips GC 8220 steam iron. The red 'refill water tank' light will no go out even though the water tank is full and properly engaged. The iron does not make a pumping noise either but I am assuming that's because it thinks there's no water to pump. Any help would be really appreciated - it seems like it might be quite a simple problem... (here's hoping anyway!)

philips do not have a manual for this iron online, sorry contact them if you want; http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?sct=IR_STEAMIRONS_SU&cat=HOP_IRONS_CA&grp=HOUSEHOLD_PRODUCTS_GR&session=20070313063306_188.8.131.52&ctn=HI296/54&slg=ENG&scy=GB The best way to clean these irons is with neat vinegar - try to get white vinegar and you have less smell to get rid of - fill the iron, give it a good shake and leave it overnight, then use the iron as normal (use it on a kitchen drying up towel or similar) then leave it for another few hours/overnight and then empty out any remaining vinegar and rinse through with water a couple of times. this normally solves any problems caused by limescale - if not then just leave the iron a little longer with the vinegar, also try to pour a little vinegar into the steam vent holes with the iron upturned and leave for a while. Hope this helps :)

Here is a tip that will help you with that problem...
My Steam Iron is Leaking Water

SOURCE: We have a GC8420 steam
Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...
If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...
For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,
and then use the bottled water instead...
