SOURCE: my wife's sunbeam microglide iron

I just took apart a Sunbeam iron. This is how it disassembles:
first remove the screw at the base. Next remove the moisture dial top (it should just pop off). This allows the iron to slide apart - the metal base from the top. It should slide about an inch then lift off.

My iron didn't get hot, and what I found is the gear that attaches the temp setting to the electrical was missing a tooth. Perhaps you could set the gear to permanently "ON". In my case I found out with brute force how the iron is supposed to disassemble... time for a new iron...

How do I put water in the Sunbeam Steam Iron #GCSBBV-200


If the GCSBBV-200 is similar to other Sunbeam steam irons, fill the iron when it is cool and unplugged. With the ironing surface flat on the sole plate, set the Steam dial to dry and the Fabric Select dial to Min. Then use an easy-pour measuring cup to pour water into the opening at the top front of the iron. Make sure not to fill past the maximum fill level. (Tip the iron up as if you were resting it between passes with the iron to check the level.)

I hope this helps.

Check how similar your iron is to the newer models.)

Brown coming through holes and there is a funny odor.


Tell us what water you have been adding to the iron over the years?
Often times our household drinking water is 'hard' or has iron in trace amounts in it- While it may not be toxic to our bodies-- when you boil it off in the steaming process, the minerals remain behind, and make a brown or dirty residue in the chamber. That residue will often 'bleed' out into the passages of the steam holes.
Have you ever used Vinegar to try to clean out the chamber?
Tho this might helb get rid of the residue-- it does tend to move the debris into the steam passageway-
So-- unless you have some way of spending considerable time and effort cleaning it out-- It may ruin more white shirts in the process than it is worth.
Note: Using distilled water will extend the life of a steaming iron-- but eventually, even the best treated Steam iron will need to be replaced!

It is dirty - how do you clean it. I think

Brown dirt coming out of steam iron


You're seeing hard water deposits and maybe a little rust. Use some CLR and pour in the iron and let it sit with it off. Shake it a bit and let it clean it all out, then rinse with clean water. (Vinegar will work too)
