    Have the iron disconnected from electrical supply (unplugged), and remove the water container. At the front of the generator, just below where the water container was, there is a water filter. pull this water filter out, by pulling in the same direction as you did with water container. This filter will need to be replaced, but before you order one - turn it upside down, so the two water spouts face downwards, and shake it vigourously over a sink - to catch any water within the filter. Then with a fast flowing tap, run the spouts under the tap for a few minutes. Do this with both spouts. Shake the filter vigourously again, and place the filter back inside the generator, and place the water container back into the generator. This may work for a short time - but I have known this to work for several months before replacement of the filter was necessary.

I have a MR jet stream it's making all the right noises, but no steam, the small pump seams to be working it makes a noise when I trigger the button iron gets hot...but no steam.


Try adding vinegar to the iron to dissolve any built up mineral deposits inside the steam passages. Put the vinegar in place of water, heat the iron and let it sit for 10 or so minutes. Dump out the vinegar and put water back in the iron and heat again. if the water starts sputtering out the steam holes, then repeat the process a few times to clear the passages.

My Rowenta pro precision iron steam station gets hot but doesn't steam. How do I get the iron to produce steam?


There are two cause. One the boiler resistance doesn´t turn of because of snap disc or bimetal thermostat fault or because a coil in the working valve (security valve). But if you can heard a click of opening movement of valve when you push the button it is able to be a thermostat.

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 .

Russell Hobbs Steamglide 2200 - no steam


Same with mine! What you have to do is keep taking the water cannister off and pushing back on until its lined up correctley. Also have the whole unit at the same height as the ironing board, that should do it! Can you help with filters? I cant find them anywhere.

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.
