Why is my sussman iron (102258-1) not steaming?

There was no water in the hose so I took it off and cleaned the water reservoir and that seemed to work but then water poured thru the iron. I discovered a couple parts from the iron end of the hose, I think that fell out. One is bullet shaped with a small pinhole in one end and the other a tiny spring. I put them in but no matter which way I turn them, no steam. Please help. Thank you.

SOURCE: No Steam From Iron

Hi,

I can tell you the stem rod for the steam control is choke or faulty. These prevent the water going onto the sole plate that why no steam.You've to send for servicing at your nearest repair shop or agent.

SOURCE: Steam iron just spits water

Hiya .. your problem is more than likely to be one of two things
1. The element is overheating, which means the thermostat is not functioning as it should.. can you hear the thermostat Clicking? if so
2. No matter how soft your water area is.. there is always scale build up around and within the jets, try a good propietary descaler..... White vinegar is a good alternative.
Fill the iron with equal parts vinegar to water, and letting it steam until dry, rinse the tank with clean water, refill it and shake the water through the steam holes over a piece of newspaper/material... Test an old cloth before ironing on anything expensive. It should sort your prob ..... never advisable do this on a new iron as the acidity may damage the iron!

SOURCE: Hi, My Tefal Express Steam

Do you use any additive to the water when you iron?
Do you empty the water out after use ?
Brown steam / water suggests foul water, or rust due to dirty water pipes on Iron.

With regards to 'not working' - do you have any lights on, or is it dead.
(I had one of these, the mains lead within the flex holder had broken - design flaw) - managed to repair.

SOURCE: Steam Tek mop doesnt steam anymore

We had a similar experience. I opened the head to look if the steam line was clogged. There was no sign of dirt or calcium build up, so I opened up the body. Found that one of the heater wires had come loose. The connector, which is crimped to the wire, was charred. Could be a potential fire hazard!

I notice that a similar product marketed under the Thane brand has been recalled for wiring issues.

We will try to return this mop for a refund.

Brown steam


Brown steam is normally associated with internal rust in the iron. descaling may help clean it up. To descale make a solution of 3 parts distilled water to one part white vinegar, about a teacup full and pour into the irons water reservoir. Switch the iron on and set it on to the highest steam setting. Place a clean tea towel or similar on the ironing board and steam-clean it with the iron for a few minutes. The vinegar/distilled water solution will break down and expel the limescale. Turn off the iron (unplug). Pour out the water and vinegar solution. Pour clean distilled water into the iron reservoir and steam-clean a new clean cloth for a few minutes. this will remove any risidual vinegar etc. Turn off and unplug the iron and pour out the remaining water.

How do you run clean cycle - I have lost the manual


Self-Cleaning and Maintaining Sole Plate

Use the self-cleaning feature once a month by moving the steam lever back and forth from the "dry" setting several times. This will remove any residue from the steam valve and ensure that the steam system works properly.

Wipe the sole plate with a soft, damp cloth while the iron is cool and unplugged.

Run the iron over a cotton cloth several times to remove any residue from the sole plate.

Cleaning Anti-Calcium Feature

Fill the water cup that came with your iron. Use enough water to reach the Sunbeam logo in the top corner of the cup.

Add a teaspoon of salt to the cup and stir.

Empty the salt solution into the water reservoir in your iron.

Allow the iron to stand for 15 minutes, then empty out the water reservoir.Repeat this cycle with a second cupful of salt water.

Rinse out the reservoir with clean water. You should perform this cleaning once a month.

How to clean brown water coming out of iron


The reservoir of your iron needs cleaning if it looks as though small deposits are being left in the small holes on the soleplate. Typically, the deposits are minerals from the water that you are using in the reservoir. The deposits may have a white color, and they may resemble salt.

Cleaning the reservoir requires the use of white vinegar and a clean rag. Fill the reservoir of a cold iron at least one fourth of the way with white vinegar. Turn the iron on and place it on the steam setting. Steam iron the clean rag until the reservoir is completely empty.

If the deposits are still visible to you, you will need to fill the reservoir with clean water and steam iron a rag again. If the deposits are still visible to you after this, you will need to repeat the process with vinegar until the deposits are no longer apparent.

Rinse the reservoir thoroughly with clean water by filling it completely and then emptying it completely. In order to avoid mineral buildup and deposits, use only distilled or purified water in the reservoir. If you continue to use tap water, simply remember to clean the reservoir periodically.

Vinegar has a strong smell associated with it, especially when it is heated. Ventilate the area where you are working as much as possible, by opening windows, turning on vents or fans, or keeping the door open.

The water you use to fill your iron is causing this problem. Once you clean it use distilled water available by the gallon at the grocery store. Joe

Dirty water in my iron


The dirty water coming out of your iron steam holes is caused by the accumulation of 'dirty' tap water: if you look inside an eletric kettle, you will see the same 'dirty' muddy brown mineral residue on the inside. In addition, if your iron is old, it can also be rust. It is a pretty common problem that can be minimized by using distilled water. You can get commercial steam iron cleaning fluid to clean the inside of your steam iron or you an simply use vinegar: 1) with a cold iron, fill the reservoir with straight vinegar 2) Place your iron on top of a metal kitchen rack above your kitchen sink, turn iron on and let it steam out all the vinegar: it should spit out the whitish mineral and muddy brown deposity. 3) Refill iron reservoir with clean water and repeat as of step 2. 4) Refill iron reservoir with clean water, wipe any dirty from the sole plate and this time on full steam, iron on clean layers of Kitchen paper to ensure that all dirt has been removed from the inside of the iron reservoir, if not, repeat from step 1 again.
In the future, try to use distilled or at least filtered water.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

My steam iron will not steam. How do I clean it?


Mix (1 to 5 parts) white vinegar in distilled water and pour into the reservoir. Let sit for an hour or so, then pour out through a coffee filter into a container, then pour back into the iron for another hour. At this point, heat the iron and try the steamer function. The vinegar solution will clean deposits from the steam jets, so don't try to iron anything yet. Keep running solution through until sputtering stops. Wash out the reservoir with distilled water, then refill and steam wash the ports several times to remove the vinegar. If you can get it clean, continue to use only distilled water in the iron.

The iron has plenty of water in the reseviour but will not steam. I have press the steam button and steam comes out but it will not steam otherwise


Your iron may be due for a cleaning. After awhile the ports inside the iron become clogged with mineral deposits.

Try using a mix of 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. place the mix in the reservoir and allow the iron to heat up for steam until the reservoir is empty. Then do a second round with plain distilled water. Clean the the iron plate of residue after it cools.
If the vinegar mix does not work (and you can do the mix a few times) try using a product such as "Lime Away" or "CLR" to dissolve the deposits. Hope this helps.

Mold


First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar.  I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir.  The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times.  Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting.  Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth
