Question about Philips HI-296 Iron
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

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_220.127.116.11&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 :)

SOURCE: Steaming function stop working
its just connected with a screws on the front flap that has to be opened to seperate it into two parts,and inside there is small black coil thats is connected to the wires that wires must be short so has to be replaced with another wires. do it carefully .take care.
