Blockage " mineral deposits" get a de-scalar and follow the directions. Only use distilled water in steam iron.
Sometimes vinegar will work depending on mineral deposits causing blockage.

http://www.fixitclub.com/Parts_Components/Appliance_Controls.shtml click the link  Maintenance and repair tools you'll need to fix an electric iron include these:

  • Screwdrivers
  • Toothpicks or pipe cleaners
  • Sewing needle
  • Commercial electric iron cleaning solution or vinegar and water
  • Commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water
  • Steel wool
  • Emery cloth
  • Metal cooking pot

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical cord, and check the thermostat (see the Appliance Controls Fix-It Guide) and replace if necessary.
If 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.

SOURCE: MY rowenta Iron wont produce steam. IT heats up

Sounds like the Steam control valve is blocked or not opening. try cleaning the iron with a kit from wallmart or similar store. Failing that :It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.

For my singer electronic steam press esp2 can i use deironise water instead of distilled as i can not get any distilled water in any of the shops in my area.


Hi,
You can try the deionized water but you may have trouble with it producing enough steam...water that is too pure may not produce steam well depending on the way it is heated.
If it does not produce enough steam just add a bit of salt to the water and it will work well.

I have a Bosch Steam Generator Sensixx B25L that has suddenly stopped producing steam. The iron gets hot so that bit is ok, help, I have a huge pile of ironing!


Your steam generator my have mineral deposits that are clogging the steam openings. One of the easiest things to do is to pour out the water and add white vinegar. Let the vinegar sit for about 2 hours. Then turn on the iron and press the steam button until the deposits are loosened and flushed by the heat and steaming vinegar. Do this on a towel or other absorbent fabric so you don't stain your ironing board. You may need to unplug the iron, let it cool and then gently **** the steam vents with a wooden skewer or toothpick.
I hope this helps you. If it does, please rate my suggestion!
