Try putting some CLR (calcium/lime/rust) remover on the thread, put a cloth around the screw and a pliers to grip. Remember, righty tighty, lefty loosey.

How to Descale your Iron.


To Descale your Iron, use Scale Away, CDR, you can buy at the hardware. It will remove the deposits. After you get it descaled you need to use Distilled water that you buy at the grocery store in it. This will avoid it scaling again.
Also, Vinegar and water, Citric Acid crystals, Usual dose 1 teaspoon per 200ml water works

Pour it in just like the water and let it steam out, then repeat with water, steaming out over a rag, sheet or something.

How do i descale a team international steam pro 2600w iron


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.

Iron is leakin onto clothing while ironing


Leaking irons happen more frequently when performing lower temperature ironing. Minimize the chances of this happening by doing the articles that require less heat with a dry iron. When you're ready to do the articles that require higher heat settings, add distilled water to the iron after allowing it to cool first (some folks suggest using rain water as it will lack the minerals contained in the soil - where water pumped from the ground picks them up).

Distilled water is recommended by manufacturers for irons. Use of regular tap water will cause mineral deposits to form inside the iron that can build up and even clog the openings on the bottom plate. These can contribute to stains on the material being ironed, too. If you are unable to obtain distilled water, you ought to descale the iron regularly to remove deposits that will form by heating water or allowing it to simply evaporate. Distilled water lacks the minerals to be deposited by either of these situations. If distilled water is used - there is no need to empty the iron before storing. Tap water - whether supplied by the locality or a well is loaded with minerals and may be treated with fluoride, chlorine, etc.

Descaling
an iron is pretty straight forward - no more difficult than descaling a coffee maker. Empty the iron of any water. Partially fill the iron with white vinegar and turn on to heat. Iron and old towel or rag to allow all the vinegar to pass through the steam openings.When empty, repeat once or twice - but with fresh distilled water to flush any remaining vinegar from the iron. When satisfied that the vinegar is out, store the iron. You can purchase products expressly made for descaling irons - just like you can for coffeemakers, but vinegar is a great low cost solution that works very well.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My toddler pulled my iron off the ironing board and now the dial to turn it on is jammed. Does that mean it is broken and I can no longer use? Or is there a way to fix it? I tried to open it and see...


take a knife or a flat blade screw driver,
and pry the knob up,
put your hand over it so nothing will fall far,
then line the two pics together and it should work.

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.

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.
