Steam is escaping from underneath the iron, how to fix this?


Household irons can drip and spit out liquid water from the holes in the metal sole plate instead of producing steam if you have set the temperature too low. The obvious remedy is to increase the temperature, but this setting is not appropriate for all types of fabric. For example, the highest setting is generally recommended for removing wrinkles from cotton garments, and the lowest setting is generally safe for silk garments. Using the iron and its steam functions as the manufacturer intended can reduce or eliminate dripping. If that doesn't solve your problem, consider additional steam iron troubleshooting.

Steam irons can become clogged with mineral deposits. Use distilled water in the iron to minimize these deposits.
To clean the iron , use 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. pour in iron and place iron on steam. The iron may require a few cleanings.

HI I have a Bosch Sensixx B25L iron. Steam isn't coming out of holes, seems to be escaping from edge of iron. Handle very hot (Too hot to hold on to), burns your hand when steam button is pressed


I just fixed mine - it had exactly the same problem.

First, though, check it's not within the Bosch TWO year guarantee; if it is, they'll either fix or replace it.

If it's not under guarantee then the problem is probably the rubber tubing that connects the external steam tube to the hotplate. You'll need to dismantle the iron. Mine had split right next to the spring clip that holds it on. I shortened it, clipped it back on and all is now well.

Steam is escaping from the sealed tank. Pro expess iron.


I haven't solved the problem yet. I didn't realise, to begin with, that I was on a USA website. I am in Uk and felt this would be too problematic with charges etc.
Thanks for getting in touch I'll get back if I need to.

My Rowenta Garment Steamer will not steam up.


Ok. This thing is caused by scaling. If the steam generator runs out of water the sensor thinks the tank is empty and causes the machine to go to standby (basically switch off -- orange light comes on). The solution: Open the machine and clean it.

MAKE SURE THE POWER CABLE IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. There are six screws ( phillips - you will need a long screwdriver). Two of them are hidden under the wheels (just pop off the rollers and you will see the screws)

2. Open the steam generator (there are four screws) and be very careful with the 'O' ring -- you damage it and you can say good bye to the machine. Clean it if you see scaling. The amount of scaling present would indicate how hard your water was. This itself may not be cause of the problem but now that you openend the machine, you might as well as clean it for better efficiency.

3. Disconnect the hose to the steam generator (it has two circlips) and clean it. Mine had hard deposit of scales preventing the water reaching the steam generator.

Re assemble it.

Good Luck
