I had to order mine direct from Breville. If you go to their website and contact them with the model of the iron then they will give you details of price and postage.

SOURCE: How to use the calc-clean button
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.
To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.
Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.
Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.
When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.
Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

Here is a tip that will help you with that problem...
Cleaning a Steam Iron Soleplate
Posted on Jul 15, 2010
Sounds like you are on the right track. Since all seems to be working and you can hear gurgling, i.e. steam being made, then the the passages are plugged. The vinegar and water trick will clean the reservoir, but you still have to clean all the openings in the ironing surface. Have you done that?
Another vinegar trick to try is mixing hot water, vinegar and baking soda and pouring that into the iron while it is still frothing. Let the iron sit for 30 minutes on the soleplate with iron on steam. Then run some clear water through it and use it on a fabric you don't care about for the first session.
If that doesn't work, you might try a commercial cleaner such as CLR, Faultless Hot Iron Cleaner, Whink Steam Iron Cleaner, or Lime Away.
Distilled water is good to use in your iron but it still has minerals in it that will build up over time. It just takes longer to build up than tap water.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Keeps me working here. :>)
