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.
hope you can put a smile on my face id be so grateful.
thank you for your attention.
kindest regards
michelle

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

STEAM ONLY COMING OUT OF TOP HOLES SWAN S15040


The iron is probably clogged up from mineral deposits in the water. Fill the iron with a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar. Heat the iron and let it set for awhile. Then steam the solution through the iron. Repeat the process if this does not work. If the Vinegar and water does not work, then try a product such as Lime Away or CLR to remove the deposits. After the iron is cleaned out, try using distilled bottled water in the iron, to reduce the mineral build up.
Hope this helps you!

I have a Swan S15040 steam generator iron, the stand by light is permanently flashing, no matter what temperature setting i put the iron on. No steam is generated. I have tried holding the steam button...


I had same issue , now , once you turn the unit on , you should see displayed 3 steam jets and the flashing standby , turn the dial on the iron to max ,press the steam button on the machine to max steam , leave for a minute or so , now press the steam button on the iron , does it make a noise ? if it does , slightly raise the whole front end of the unit ( easier if you have the iron on the worktop and not on the unit !) for a minute then try and press the steam button on the iron again . I think there is a bit of an issue about the conection between the water tank and the filter . This solved my issues and i do hope it will help you .

Try holding the iron well below the base with the cord straight and pressing the steam button, this will release any airlock caused by a changing the filter
