Tip

Cleaning a Steam Iron Soleplate


During the day to day use of a steam iron there can be normal buildup accumulate on the soleplate of the iron. Other things such as melted synthetic fibers, iron-on trims, and fusibles can also buildup on the sole plate of the iron. These can be removed with the use of a quality hot soleplate cleaner. Soleplate Cleaning Kits can be purchased from many service centers or can be found online by doing a search for “soleplate cleaning kit”.

If you have had the misfortune of getting melted plastic on the soleplate of your iron, you can remove that by taking a piece of Aluminum foil and sprinkling it with salt. Then take the hot iron and work it back and forth over the salt to break up the plastic and remove it from the bottom of the iron.

Avoid starches and be careful of synthetic materials. Also avoid zippers and buttons that can scratch the bottom of your iron.

Do not use the soleplate cleaners on your iron if it has a non-stick surface. With the non-stick surface you should not need the cleaning anyway. These surfaces can be damaged easily by anything abrasive. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any soleplate. Use the soleplate cleaning kit.

The holes in the bottom of our iron can be cleaned by using a pipe cleaner of a Q-tip.
Simply make sure the bottom is cool and then insert the pipe cleaner or Q-tip into the holes one by one and circle them around inside to clean out the hole.

If your iron has a “self clean” feature, do not over use it. It is recommended that you use it at least once per year, but not more then once per month.

Philips 6104 duble speed


follow this test and fix it. God bless you
As with many small appliances, regular maintenance makes a dramatic difference in how trouble free your electric iron will be. Even so, things can happen.
If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the power cord and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the power cord Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
