Question about Homedics PS-200 Iron with Auto Shut-off
Steamer only used once and the on light is on but no heat or steam . The body of the unit gets warm but that is all. I have held checked all of the parts and they seem to be ok. I have the wand at full length and yet nothing. Help
I bought one of these units at a Salvation Army Store still in the box brand new. I experienced the same problems (power was lit, but the breaker would trip and turn unit off). I opened the unit up and since I have knowledge of circuits, I bypassed the breaker (trips when it reaches a predetermined temp). I did however add a CRUCIAL electrical component that makes this possible an keeps your house from burning down - a added a simple dial thermostat (like one from a single electric plug-in coil stove top). Bottom line, I took on this project moreless for fun and I would NOT RECOMMEND anyone try this unless you have some knowledge about electrical circuits.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical 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.
