Philips azur iron red light consantly flashing

My iron heats up and the orange light is on but after a few minutes it seems to lose heat and the orange light switches to a red light flashing constantly it seems to be ok on the steam which does hiss from time to time, but the iron is only a year old and I am very upset having paid just under 90.00 that it has failed so quickly. Please can you help and hopefully you can assure me it is not a right off Many thanks

SOURCE: Philips Azure self-cleaning steam iron

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_83.37.63.254&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 :)

your iron has a thermostat fault its this thermostat thats cutting in and out that puts the red light on it could be fixed but that wont be a cheap fix best bet is to buy a new iron as that would work out cheaper

Fill tank with water and put steam setting to 0.Set temp pial to hottest setting. Let the iron heat up till the light in the hand goes out. Switch off power and hold iron over sink. Push down and hold descale button until all the steam and water has gone from iron. Wipe plate and heat up iron again with no water in it.

Problem with Philips Azur Precise 4340 Iron


i had the same problem and the Philips hekp site was no use. I turned my iron off until it was completely cooled down then switched it back on again, with the steam number turned to 5 and the heat on max. as soon as the ready light went off, i put my iron in the horizontal position and shook it back and forth (quite vigorously) and it seemed to have dont the trick!

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
