SOURCE: Brown spots coming from steam iron

you can mix 50% water with 50% vinager let it set in the iron overnight then turn it on and let the steam run out.What happens is the inside of the iron where the water is had corroded or rusted or has lime deposits.the vinager will break this loose overnight.also after you let the iron steam out all the mixture,flush the iron 4 to 5 times and start using fresh water from a store bought gallon.your tap water is probably full of iron.

SOURCE: My iron doesn't steam up anymore

Time for a new iron. I last one went to the iron graveyard and I then spent $150.00 on the top of the range Phillips with the gold plate. Has cut my ironing down to a 1/4 of the time. Well worth it

SOURCE: Brown spots coming from steam iron

Fill with 50/50 water vinegar solution. Get it good and hot and let it sit for two hours. Rinse and repeat if necessary. Buy a gallon of water from the market and use that from now on. This will fix your problem. The Iron is concentrating the iron in you water and this is what is causing the brown spots. Hope you find this helpful. If you do please take the time to rate it fixya and maybe I will keep helping people for free.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

How do I put water in the Sunbeam Steam Iron #GCSBBV-200


If the GCSBBV-200 is similar to other Sunbeam steam irons, fill the iron when it is cool and unplugged. With the ironing surface flat on the sole plate, set the Steam dial to dry and the Fabric Select dial to Min. Then use an easy-pour measuring cup to pour water into the opening at the top front of the iron. Make sure not to fill past the maximum fill level. (Tip the iron up as if you were resting it between passes with the iron to check the level.)

I hope this helps.

(Sunbeam has the manual for the GCSBBC-395 on their support site: http://www.sunbeam.com/service-and-support/product-support/instruction-manuals/garment-care/other/garment-care-other-manual.html . The direct link to the manual is http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aamb_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-sunbeam-Site/Sites-sunbeam-Library/default/v1425126445413/documents/instruction-manuals/160253.PDF . Check how similar your iron is to the newer models.)

I cannot get my GCSBDS212 steam iron to make steam.


Have a look at the steam holes in the bottom, they should be nice an clean with no blockage. If they are blocked up you will need to remove the calcium buildup inside the iron. Get some LimeAway at HDepot, pour it into the water reservoir, let sit overnight. Next day turn the iron on and try steaming on some old papers covered with an old rag or towel, once it starts working steam for a few minutes, then unplug, drain it, put in clean distilled water and flush it out until the steam comes out clear. Use distilled water not tap water, it has much less mineral content and will be less likely to plug it up. Most pharmacies and Walmart sell distilled water. ! gallon about $1.25.

How to clean inside of iron


Please don't take Landsend advice, as it contadicts this whole "fixya" site! Let's keep it going by not giving in to this throw away world! Some people can't afford a $20 iron @ Wally's!
All the solutions above (besides Landsend) are on it!! Your City water is still too, hard for these delicate, devices. Filtered, as Alan Serna mentioned, is the way to go!! Dump your water out of your iron, when not using-maintenance is key, for everything, even your families!! : ) Have a G8 day!

Sunbeam steam iron model #GCSBRS-1 does not give steam. 11/2yr old


I have had the same issue with both of these irons. I bought them both thinking they would be a "better" iron with more steam and have not been happy within the first year of owning them. Thanks for the tips.

Sunbeam steam valet instructions


How to fill your Sunbeam Steam Valet
Here is how you fill your Steam Valet. Press the small button on the back of the handle and pull bottom of handle apart from the top half of steam valet. Then take off the white cap on the inside of the handle and fill with water to top. Place cap back onto the opening and slide handle back and click in place. Plug in and you're ready to steam within a few minutes. If it spits out water let heat up a little longer if that doesn't stop it then tie a thin cloth over the top part where steam comes out to keep the water from spitting out onto your fabric. Hope these instructions are clear enough. More questions about this iron go to www.manualslib.com.

How do you run clean cycle - I have lost the manual


Self-Cleaning and Maintaining Sole Plate

Use the self-cleaning feature once a month by moving the steam lever back and forth from the "dry" setting several times. This will remove any residue from the steam valve and ensure that the steam system works properly.

Wipe the sole plate with a soft, damp cloth while the iron is cool and unplugged.

Run the iron over a cotton cloth several times to remove any residue from the sole plate.

Cleaning Anti-Calcium Feature

Fill the water cup that came with your iron. Use enough water to reach the Sunbeam logo in the top corner of the cup.

Add a teaspoon of salt to the cup and stir.

Empty the salt solution into the water reservoir in your iron.

Allow the iron to stand for 15 minutes, then empty out the water reservoir.Repeat this cycle with a second cupful of salt water.

Rinse out the reservoir with clean water. You should perform this cleaning once a month.

How to flush brown fluid from Sunbeam Steam Master steam jets and increase steam shooting?


There is commercial iron cleaner, but you can use white vinegar and distilled water to flush it. I would use a mixture of half and half. Then let it steam its little self, when it is clear, rinse with the distilled water again, This kind of thing happens when you use tap water and let it sit in it without rinsing after using. I always use distilled water and empty right away after use. Good luck

Won't steam


The steam irons I have see have a separate button to allow water from the reservoir to enter the steam chamber. This button latches down for steam and you unlatch it for dry. Also, there is a temperature range on the temp dial for steam.

The reservoir must have water in it for the iron to make steam. If calcium from the water has built up on the reservoir valve, it may prevent the water from entering the steam chamber. Straight white vinegar instead of water may help.
