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_18.104.22.168&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.

SOURCE: How to use the calc-clean button
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.
To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.
Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.
Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.
When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.
Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

SOURCE: We have a GC8420 steam
Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...
If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...
For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,
and then use the bottled water instead...
