Make a solution of half water and half white vinegar. Fill up your iron and get it good and hot then let it sit a couple hours. flush out and repeat as necessary. Hope you find this helpful. Please give me a fixya rating If this works for you. It works very well as long as it is not completely filled with scale. Once you have it good and clean By a gallon of bottled water at the market and use that for your Iron and you will never have a scale problem again. I learned how to do this 20 years ago from a 80 year old woman from england. If it is really bad you can up the vinegar concentration but do not go higher than 2 cup to 1.

Thankfully I was able to clean the boiler compartment, by unscrewing the large bolt on the boiler, cleaned with water only, loads of brown yuck came out, It would then not allow me to use the steamer, Waited until the next morning tried again and working brilliantly again.

SOURCE: Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta

Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

Steam generation minimum morphy richards


If tap water is used in a hard water area limescale can soon build up and reduce water flow into the steam generator.
A propriety descaler might help but if the situation is too advanced it is unlikely.

Why is there No steam from morphy Richards 42247 model steam generator?


It may be calcified or have lime scale. If the heater is "gummed up", it cannot heat properly. Try using either vinegar (takes longer) or an iron cleaner. You pour it in and it breaks up the scale. CLR works quite well too. Use pipe cleaners to clear out the holes in the sole plate.

Can't get my Morphy Richards steam generator off of standby


do this and use the common sense. God bless you
f 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

My Morphy Richards Jetstream is about 5 or 6 years old & works fine except that when I first use the steam I get brown water marks on items. This means I have to wash them again. What can I do to solve...


Try cleaning the inside of the water holder it might just be calcium built up, use white vinegar to clear it and you'll prolly be fine. Put vinegar where you usually put the water and heat the iron up and steam the vinegar through the iron then put water, try distilled water to save this problem from happening again or try filtered water.

I have a morphy richards turbo steam iron i have had it for some 2 weeks and used it 6 times and fill it with normal tap water. on using it tonight i have noticed that there are white smears been left on...


The white stain is due to mineral build up on your iron.
Try flushing the iron with a vinegar solution to dissolve the mineral deposits then purge with demineralized water. Only use demeralized water in your iron. The first time you may want to test it on a scrap piece of cloth to insure all of the minerals have been removed.
