The iron is getting to hot internally and setting off the high limit switch. Since these cannot be repaired by design, you will have to replace the unit.

How to clean a non-stick sole plate iron

I had this iron, and have since gotten rid of it. I cleaned the iron by running it with a solution of vinegar and water, about 1/2 and 1/2. Ran the steam until the solution was empty, and cleaned the nozzles with a q-tip at the same time. It worked temporarily.

My non stick sole plate on my Sunbeam iron is discolored with a rusty looking color that's coming off on my clothes. I keep it clean as can be, never leaving water in it,but this rusty looking dried on...

The discoloration is from a reaction of your water and the shield. The best way to avoid this is to use distilled water rather than tap water or use a water filter. I have had this problem at home as well (i have well water) and using a filter "fixed" the problem for me. Hopefully this will resolve the problem for you as well.

Please let us know if you still have the problem and we'll look for other alternatives.

Sewing machine keeps skipping stitches

Generally, it means that the bobbin is too tight in the cavity.

1. Remove the bobbin
2. Try a drop of oil in the bobbin cavity in the machine, using a Q-TIP
3. After applying the oil, use a clean Q-TIP to remove excess oil in the cavity (may need more than one clean Q-TIP).
4. Replace bobbin.

Hope this helps!
