See the instruction and fix it. God bless you
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.

Hi joseph mc410

Go to HomeDepot,Lowes,WalMart,any hardware store,etc.
Purchase some "CLR" mix it according to the directions on the bottle and pour it in your iron and let it work...then pour it out, flush with distilled water and you should have cleaned your iron now.

Wont produce steam.Sole plate is hot and water is being heated but no steam being produced.18 months old,cleaned after every use.


Pour some vinegar in it and let it set for several hours cold. Then warm it up. This should start to dissolve the leftover minerals blocking the steam holes. May take several attempts, but it will eventually start to steam again.

f 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 (see the Appliance Controls Fix-It Guide).
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle (see below).
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

I have a Euro-Pro E8000. It is about 15 years old. The iron heats up but does not produce steam. I probably have not used it in about 1 year. Any suggestions?


Check that the steam holes in the base are clear. There are patent sale cleaners available commercially. Enquire at any major appliance store etc.

Russell Hobbs Steamglide 2200 - no steam


Same with mine! What you have to do is keep taking the water cannister off and pushing back on until its lined up correctley. Also have the whole unit at the same height as the ironing board, that should do it! Can you help with filters? I cant find them anywhere.
