Can spring water be used instead of distilled?


The reason that distilled water is suggested it is the mineral deposits that are in the water.
Any other kind of water than distilled has more, and possibly a lot more minerals than distilled.
That means, it might depend on how soon you can no longer use your iron, as it is clogged with mineral deposits.
How much minerals are in the spring water is anybody's guess, some more, some less.
God bless your efforts.

Steam irons can become clogged with mineral deposits. Use distilled water in the iron to minimize these deposits.
To clean the iron , use 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. pour in iron and place iron on steam. The iron may require a few cleanings.

Ssteams constantly without pressing steam trigger


Sounds like your trigger valve in the iron portion (not the tank) is jammed open. It could be from mineral deposits so maybe try running it with a solution of distilled water and a couple of tablespoons of vinegar in the tank. Wiggle the steam trigger to try to release any scaling that maybe present inside the valve. If your steaming from the iron stops, you've fixed the problem so let the iron cool and rinse the tank using ONLY DISTILLED WATER which anyone knows is the only type of water to be used in ALL appliances. Minerals in regular tap water kill appliances quickly. Never use tap or bottled drinking water even if the directions say it's okay. Iron some old rags or towels with a tank of distilled water to make sure no mineral deposits or staining steam comes out after cleaning.
If this fix doesn't work, you can buy a replacement iron portion online..try 1800Parts.com. It's cheaper than buying a whole new iron but you may need a repairman...I've never tried to fix this portion of my DG5030 iron.

How to clean brown water coming out of iron


The reservoir of your iron needs cleaning if it looks as though small deposits are being left in the small holes on the soleplate. Typically, the deposits are minerals from the water that you are using in the reservoir. The deposits may have a white color, and they may resemble salt.

Cleaning the reservoir requires the use of white vinegar and a clean rag. Fill the reservoir of a cold iron at least one fourth of the way with white vinegar. Turn the iron on and place it on the steam setting. Steam iron the clean rag until the reservoir is completely empty.

If the deposits are still visible to you, you will need to fill the reservoir with clean water and steam iron a rag again. If the deposits are still visible to you after this, you will need to repeat the process with vinegar until the deposits are no longer apparent.

Rinse the reservoir thoroughly with clean water by filling it completely and then emptying it completely. In order to avoid mineral buildup and deposits, use only distilled or purified water in the reservoir. If you continue to use tap water, simply remember to clean the reservoir periodically.

Vinegar has a strong smell associated with it, especially when it is heated. Ventilate the area where you are working as much as possible, by opening windows, turning on vents or fans, or keeping the door open.

The water you use to fill your iron is causing this problem. Once you clean it use distilled water available by the gallon at the grocery store. Joe

STEAM ONLY COMING OUT OF TOP HOLES SWAN S15040


The iron is probably clogged up from mineral deposits in the water. Fill the iron with a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar. Heat the iron and let it set for awhile. Then steam the solution through the iron. Repeat the process if this does not work. If the Vinegar and water does not work, then try a product such as Lime Away or CLR to remove the deposits. After the iron is cleaned out, try using distilled bottled water in the iron, to reduce the mineral build up.
Hope this helps you!

Ther is white build up in it. i used the self


The white build up is probably mineral deposits from the water used in the iron. Try using a solution of white vinegar and water, about 50% each, and let the solution heat and steam through the iron. You may need to do this a few times. If this does not work, try using a product such as Lime Away or CLR to remove the deposits. After treatment, clean the bottom of the iron after it cools. It's a good idea to use distilled water in the iron to avoid all those mineral deposits.
Hope this helps!
