Need manual for swan steam generater iron model s15040
Bought the above secondhand said it is working order, but didnt have instructions.
i filled the tank switched it on at the mains the 2 orange button lights came on, on the tank base, but the display screen flashed something so quick i missed what it was. the red light on the actual iron didnt come on even though i set it at temprature 3. i pressed the button on the tank that has the symbol of a circle with a line through the top (i presumed this was the on/off button) nothing happened, pressed the steam button, again nothing happened. so switched unit off, then back on again and it started beeping, but nothing showing on the display. im dumbfounded and need your help please.

Re: need manual for swan steam generater iron model...
You have probably solved this by now but I just got the same model new switch on instructions as follows press and HOLD the POWER button for 3 seconds to switch the unit on once temperature has been reached, press and HOLD the steam button on top of the iron for up to 20 seconds this will prime the steam pump and only has to be done once for each ironing session the pump noise will stop once it has been primed with water hope this helps if still needed if you need the user guide, let me know, I'll scan it for you Wendy

It is hard to assess what would be the cause, but I think your diagnosis may be correct, of a possible crack, or a tube has come loose. You tube has instructions on how to disassemble and iron if you are up to it and have the tools. Then you'd have to order a replacement part, and re-assemble. I'd just go to walmart & buy a new iron! But that's me! :) Iron Disassembly Process
If the switch isn't obvious it could be it doesn't have one and is supposed to steam continuously. The last iron my wife bought is like that. When she fills the tank and plugs it in it will steam for a matter of seconds and then stop. It begins to steam again as soon as she starts to use it.
Probably needs decalcifying. If the iron has a steam boost button then fill it with water, turn it on and wait for it to heat up, hold it over the kitchen sink and repeatedly press the steam boost button. this may clear any blockages.
If that does not work then you can purchase a cleaning solution from a hardware store that is used to decalcify the iron. You fill the tank with the solution and let it pass through the iron to remove calcium deposits. Instructions will be provided with the solution.
Fill tank with water and put steam setting to 0.Set temp pial to hottest setting. Let the iron heat up till the light in the hand goes out. Switch off power and hold iron over sink. Push down and hold descale button until all the steam and water has gone from iron. Wipe plate and heat up iron again with no water in it.
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
1. Place the unit on a stable surface.
2. While holding the water tank with one
hand, move the release lever toward the
3. With the reservoir released, pull up on
the reservoir to remove it from the body of
4. Turn the reservoir over, revealing the rubber
5. Open the inlet cover and fill the tank
with everyday tap water (filtered water may
reduce hard water problems).
6. Close the inlet cover and return the
reservoir to its place, making sure that the
reservoir is secure.
I'm willing to try this to clean the mold out of the steamer container and possibly the rest of the attachments:
1. Empty the water reservoir completely.
2. Place 20 mL of CLR or bleach into the reservoir.
3. Fill the reservoir with hot water.
4. Shake the reservoir to mix and let stand for about 1 hour.
5. Empty the reservoir completely.
6. Rinse the reservoir 3 or 4 times with cold water.
7. Fill the reservoir with distilled water.
8. Run the steamer into the ventilated air a couple of times to ensure that there is no CLR or bleach residue on the evaporation elements. Thus, there will be no bleach on your cloths.
I have the same problem and will try this out tomorrow. I will tell you how it turns out.
SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.
