Model 14506 stream iron spews blackish/brown junk whenever I iron

Have tried cleaning with the self clean button 7-8 tomes but it just keeps coming out. Can I use white vinegar in the reservoir to try to loosen the stuff or can I disassemble somehow?

SOURCE: self-cleaning leaves a brown stain on the white part on my oven

Perhaps the door gasket is not sealing well enough. In self clean mode the oven get very hot and vaporizes the fat off the sides. With a leak I think some of the fat is redepositing on on the outside where the leak is. You may need a new door seal.

Sounds like there was water in the line when it was stored, which caused deposits to bild up in the line and not work without pressure. Hence having to press the button to get steam out.
Try loading it full with really hot water and a small amount of bleach. Steam all of the water out of it into the air. Clean out the resevoir with fresh water after it has cooled and try again.
Please remember to rate this solution.

Brown steam


Brown steam is normally associated with internal rust in the iron. descaling may help clean it up. To descale make a solution of 3 parts distilled water to one part white vinegar, about a teacup full and pour into the irons water reservoir. Switch the iron on and set it on to the highest steam setting. Place a clean tea towel or similar on the ironing board and steam-clean it with the iron for a few minutes. The vinegar/distilled water solution will break down and expel the limescale. Turn off the iron (unplug). Pour out the water and vinegar solution. Pour clean distilled water into the iron reservoir and steam-clean a new clean cloth for a few minutes. this will remove any risidual vinegar etc. Turn off and unplug the iron and pour out the remaining water.

How do I clean my Black N Decker Advantage Iron


I work for Black & Decker customer service. Our number is 800-231-9786.

You can obtain a new manual for free by visiting www.useandcaremanuals.com. Below is the section from the manual on care and cleaning of your iron.

Care and Cleaning

This product contains no user serviceable parts. Refer
service to qualified service personnel.
It is not necessary to empty the water reservoir after each
use of the iron, if you iron frequently.
To empty the iron, hold the iron over the sink with the tip
pointing down. Water will stream out of the water fill
opening.

TO CLEAN THE OUTSIDE SURFACES

• Unplug and allow iron to cool completely. Wipe the
soleplate and outer surfaces with a soft cloth
dampened in water and a mild household detergent.
Never use abrasives, heavy duty cleansers, vinegar, or
scouring pads that may scratch or discolor the iron.

• After cleaning, iron with steam over an old cloth to
remove any residue from the steam vents.
ABOUT THE SELF-CLEANING SYSTEM

• Use the self-cleaning system to flush out minerals and
lint. If lint is allowed to accumulate in the vents, it can
scorch and cause brown spotting.
For Models D2000 and D2020: Clean about once a
month.
For Models D2010, D2030 and D2035: A "CLEAN"
indicator will appear in the digital display to notify you
when your iron needs cleaning (A).

• Fill the iron as described in "How to Use" but keep the
water level below the MAX line. Plug in the iron, set
the temperature to 6, and stand the iron on its heel
rest. Allow to heat about 3 minutes.

• Unplug the iron and take it to a sink. Holding it
horizontally over a sink, move and HOLD the variable
steam dial in the CLEAN position ( ). There may be
some hissing and spitting while self-cleaning. This is
normal.

• Stay clear of HOT steam and boiling water as it comes
out of the vents while lint, scale, and minerals flush
through! Continue to hold the variable steam dial in
the CLEAN position until all the water has emptied.
If necessary, rock the iron side to side and front to back
to empty it.

• When finished, release the variable steam dial, stand
the iron on its heel rest, and plug it in. Heat for about
2 minutes to dry out any remaining water then unplug.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

TO CLEAN THE BOTTOM OF THE IRON, MY NAN USED TO ALWAYS IRON BROWN PAPER, IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, USE A RAG DIPPED IN THINNERS, OR LIGHTER PETROL AND RUB GENTLY.

NORMALLY THE SELF CLEAN SYSTEM IS JUST A BUTTON NEAR OR ON THE TANK THAT YOU PRESS WHILE THE IRON IS ON AND HAS WATER IN, PRESSING THE BUTTON WILL FORCE WATER THROUGH THE STEAM JETS (SO KEEP IRON FACING DOWN) ALSO EMPTY THE IRON AFTER EVERY USE
