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.

Lost steam pressure


see this causes and fix it.God bless you

Inspect the steam vents from the outside, and use a pipe cleaner or other small utensil to remove any excess buildup that is blocking the vents. Be careful not to let the buildup fall down into the steam vents.

  • 3 Clean the steam iron's directional spray tip. Minerals and other debris can build up on the nozzle over time and will greatly hinder the use of your steam iron.
  • 4 Pour equal parts vinegar and water into the steam iron's water supply tank. Put the steam iron above an empty pot, and turn the iron on. Let it steam the solution until all the water/vinegar solution is gone

    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 gauge is broken and iron will not produce steam


    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
    you will need a speacial tool screw driver  also called as g5 screw driver to open it.available at local repair store. 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.
