Buy a bottle of descaler and put it in the tank where you normally put the water. Put iron on hottest steam poison and run steam , topping up as required. Rinse thoroughly when finished and iron has cooled. Use distilled or demineralised water for steaming and the iron shouldn't require cleaning again.

Irons are generally not worth repairing. That said, try to clean out any mineral deposits with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water. Put in the usual amount. Warm the iron, try to get steam. Empty the iron and do it twice more. Then, rinse it out with plain water.

You may get lucky!

SOURCE: HOW DO I DESCALE A STEAM GENERATOR IRON

Place the iron soleplate, unplugged of course, in a shallow dish of water and descaler and leave it for a while. I have just done this with mine and its working a treat.

SOURCE: euro-pro EP1005 iron--iron heats -blower works-but no steam

You may not need a new iron, my wife's iron is doing the same thing. take the top of the ironing board off (you will need a torx t-20 security bit driver), under the tank is a connection that may have rusted out re-connet it and turn the iron on. Once it heats up, check the tank for leaks. The tank may need to be replace as well or try a 5-minute epoxy type glue on the leaks once it has cooled. If the tank leaks you will get not get enlugh pressure building up to get the steam.

I have a tefal pro express turbo GV8150 and there is constant team coming from iron without me touching the steam button. Can anyone help with a diagnosis and or possible fix?


constant steam means the control valve is not working
descaling may fix the problem
the other fix is a new iron as the cost to repair is generally more that a replacement price

No steam coming throwc


Normally when water is put inside steam irons, it get stored in tank then if thermostat knob is set for steam then water moves to bottom heated portion of iron. Water converts to steam as base plate is hot, heated steam comes out through perforated holes. If holes are blocked due to scale formation steam flow is blocked. The descaling has to be done as per instructions given on descaling wax manufacturer. sometimes if water does not enter through a rubber washer that is water tank to heated bottom portion then also steam will not get generated hence no steam. Please check above points and identify the problem.

Why has the steam function has just stopped working - power on but nothing happens


My wife has one of these irons and she loved it. Now it steams for a while, and a red light starts blinking and it stops steaming. It can be turned back on and works for a while, then the same thing happens. I read that it needed descaled, so I bought OUST descaler and ran it through the iron, but it did not solve the problem. Any one have a solution to this problem, I would like to hear from you.

What can be done about leaking steam?


ensure your iron steam button is not set into perminent steam function. leaving the iron with the point of the iron pointing upwards should reduce steam to the handle. also the iron may need to be descaled to ensure any steam switch funtion is not stuck in an on position.

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.

My Philips steam iron Easy Care 3232 oozes brown liquid through holes when used on steam. How can I clean it?


Periodic Descaling of the iron will help reduce this.
Mineral deposits in the water will remain inside the iron after being converted to steam. This builds up over time as scales unless cleaned.

For descaling instruction, refer to manufacturer.

Rowenta steam iron no longer steams


Your local grocery or hardware store will sell "descaler" for coffee pots and irons.

Mix as instructed (water/descaler) and pour the disolved mix into the iron. Set the iron on the highest steam settings (heat and steam volume). After it is hot, let it steam into the sink, pressing the steam button over and over to let the descaler work through all the tubes/passages, until it has all been pumped out.

Refill with more descaler (if it is not completely unplugged) and repeat until you are satisifed with how the iron is working.

After descaling, run clean water through it with the same process (but no descaler) several times.
