SOURCE: The steam is building up

I suspect that the discharge holes have become clogged by calcified deposites due to hard water. You need to de-calcify the iron. Mix one cup of white vinegar with one cup of water and pour this mixture in the iron and let it heat up. The acidic vinegar should dissolve the build up. repeat until clear. forthe final, use a little lemon in a cup of water to get rid of the vinegar smell. You can prevent this by using only distilled water in the iron, but this is not really practical, so a couple of clearing runs of the vinegar/water bath each month will put this off.

SOURCE: steam not working on iron then lots of water pouring out of holes

fill water chamber with vinegar and let it sit for 24 hours.
empty vinegar - fill with distilled water - turn on and press the steam button to clean the holes in the plate of mineral deposits which accumulate from using tap water. after a few shots of steam all should be clear - empty and refill with distilled water and it should be good to go.

This is a used iron. I filled the water well with bottled water and turned it on to steam. the iron dripped and **** and ruined my fabric with is spot cleanable only. I tried to adjust the steam setting...


Sounds like there are 2 issues, the water is not being heated and the water system has calcium build-up. Get a product called "Lime-Away" most Home Depot's carry it. Fill the tank with it and let is sit overnight. Then drain and fill and flush with clean water a few times. Then disassemble the iron most likely one or more of the contact has a loose wire or ends are burned and carboned up. Clean all contact and replace any burned ends, etc.

Ssteams constantly without pressing steam trigger


Sounds like your trigger valve in the iron portion (not the tank) is jammed open. It could be from mineral deposits so maybe try running it with a solution of distilled water and a couple of tablespoons of vinegar in the tank. Wiggle the steam trigger to try to release any scaling that maybe present inside the valve. If your steaming from the iron stops, you've fixed the problem so let the iron cool and rinse the tank using ONLY DISTILLED WATER which anyone knows is the only type of water to be used in ALL appliances. Minerals in regular tap water kill appliances quickly. Never use tap or bottled drinking water even if the directions say it's okay. Iron some old rags or towels with a tank of distilled water to make sure no mineral deposits or staining steam comes out after cleaning.
If this fix doesn't work, you can buy a replacement iron portion online..try 1800Parts.com. It's cheaper than buying a whole new iron but you may need a repairman...I've never tried to fix this portion of my DG5030 iron.

Leaking water around base


If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .

If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.

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.

God bless you

Leaking water when I push the trigger to get steam


It sounds like you do not have the heater setting not high enough to provide vaporize the water in the heater tank. Did you adjust the temperature on the main unit to the "cloud" (steam) setting? I would also check when the unit is cold that the reservoir (behind the trim knob is a metal screw (use a penny to remove it) and shake out all water in there. I always use the burst of steam when I am finished to purge the system of all standing water. Also make sure you only use clear filtered drinking water with low mineral content (I use our kitchen Reverse Osmosis 5 stage Water filter in the iron only).

Water leaking out of iron no steam I have a Hamilton Beach Steam Storm Model 14560 Lost manuel


The Use and Care Guide for the Hamilton Beach Iron can be downloaded here:

http://useandcares.hamiltonbeach.com/files/840091300.pdf

If water is leaking out of the iron:

• Do not overfill the water tank.

• If steam ironing, is Adjustable Steam Knob in a steam position that matches Temperature Control Dial steam range? Did the iron have enough time to preheat?
• If dry ironing, make sure the Adjustable Steam Knob is in the DRY IRON position.

My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.


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.
