You are in the soldering iron section... have you tried cleaning it with fine steel wool? I don't do too much ironing, but have cleaned mine on occasion. Rick

How do I get rid of of black dirt that is coming out of steam holes?


it is corrosion build up in the iron
you can try a quality steam iron cleaner but that process is generally short lived and the problem will return
The normal fix is a new iron and using only demineralized water-- not tap water

How do i prevent my black and decker classic iron from spitting out how water after I have used it for a while?


Cheaper irons may steam better using distilled water. Minerals in water can cause this due to build up inside.

Why steam iron won't heat up


if there is no light or heat even when the thermostat is switched to the hottest setting then assumption is that the iron is defective.

with the iron not plugged in check the cable and see if it is worn or kinked or cut. look for any burn markings on the plug. if the iron is some years old it may also be that the element has burnt out. this happens more often in areas where water scale is high.


I hope this was useful.

My Sunbeam Pro Stream II Teflon shot and spray iron consistently spits water as I try to iron. I don't overfill it and the temperature and steam dials are set correctly. help!


How old is the steam iron?
And what type of water have you been using in it during its life?

The reason I ask, is that my Wife's was doing this, and we have fairly 'hard' water,
and she was using water directly from the tap.
After a year or so of this 'hard' water, calcium and minerals build up in the heating chamber in the iron-- Also passageways get clogged, and instead of smooth flowing steam, you get build-up of pressure, and then sputtering and spurting take place, as the clogged passageways try to pass the steam to where it needs to be.

Water shoots out when trying to steam.


You are getting a lime (scale) build-up in the iron. Best to try a clean, either with a self-clean function, or buying a lime remover solution for kettles and irons.

Black deposits on bottom of iron.


there are products available at your supermarket that will help remove this build up. i dont reccomend using the iron untill you have removed the deposits because they may well mark your clothes.

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'

How to clean inside of Iron?


Unplug the iron! Allow iron to COOL completely!!! Wipe soleplate with damp soft cloth or damp soft sponge. NEVER use abrasives, cleansers, scouring pads that will scratch iron and cause discolorations. The iron has an Auto Clean Steam Valve feature that will prevent most mineral and lint build up everytime you turn the Temp. Select Dial to "0" after use. (Ref. - page 11 of the instruction pamphlet). If you have a really bad hard-water build up problem, use a commercial Steam Iron Cleaner and follow the instructions exactly! Repeat every 3-6 months and you should be fine. Good luck!
