It is my first time using it, I brought it from USA and it is not working at all!!


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electric cord and check the thermostat .
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below).
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.

No steam is coming out i think it needs cleaning


Some irons like Rowenta have a self cleaning feature. If yours doesn't make a solution of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water and put it in your iron. Plug it in and allow it to heat that up. keep working your instant steam button for a while. Hopefully the vinegar will help remove the calcium build up and let it work.

No steam from a grime buster steam cleaner what is wrong?


Check the water reservoir for clogg. Be sure that the cleaner has water on it and it is heating. .If not heating there you'll sure it won't give steam. Check the heating element for open or no continuity.
Heated water needed to generate or produce steam and you'll need a continuity tester to test it. Replace it with similar model and rating also with same size.
Good luck.

I just purchased a used EuroPro Steamer model EO8020. After about 5 minutes of use on the steam setting, the base starts making a loud rattling sound. Doesn't sound healthy to me. Can you...


It's just normal to hear that because heat inside is generating and steamer is on it's way to be ready for use. Hot air is about to be release and so rattling sound occured.
Need not to worry about it, the steamer is new and functioning normally.
Good luck
