Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...
If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...
For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,
and then use the bottled water instead...
sounds like it is time to de-scale the iron to loosen all the deposits inside the unit.
add some white viegar to the water ( which should be distilled water ) and heat up and let the iron steam out the solution. now add just water to the unit shake it and rinse out with water and drain. now do one more vinegar / water de-scaling and rinse out again. now fill with just distilled water and let it steam out and now your iron should be clean as new.
Here you have how to solve this issue. It has been obtained from the device's manual.
2. calc'n clean
The "calc'n clean" function helps to remove scale particles
from the steam dispenser. The iron includes a system to
warn when the dispenser needs periodically cleaning. When
the "calc 'n clean" symbol lights up on the navigation display
the dispenser needs cleaning.
Fill the water tank. Plug in the iron and select the temperature
After the necessary warm-up period, unplug the iron and
hold it over a sink.
Position the steam regulator to the "calc'n clean" position
and keep it in this position.
Gently shake the iron. Boiling water and steam will come out,
removing any scale or deposits that might be there.
When the iron stops dripping, position the regulator to
For improved descaling, heat up the iron again fully and
press the steam button several times in quick succession.
Then wait until the remaining water has evaporated from
the soleplate of the iron.
Once it has been cleaned, the cleaning warning must be
cancelled on the navigation display. To do this, simply press
and hold the on/set navigation key for more than 5 seconds,
with the iron plugged in. If you do not do this, the cleaning
icon will remain lit.
The "anti-calc" cartridge has been designed to reduce the
build-up of scale produced during steam ironing, helping
to extend the useful life of your iron. Nevertheless the
"anti-calc" cartridge cannot remove all of the scale that is
produced naturally over time.
This will probably just need de-scaling. Buy some descaler and there should be instructions on the packet of how to de-scale an iron. Usually by warming the iron slightly, switching off, emptying out the water and then adding the diluted de-scaler to the iron and leaving it in an almost horizontal but raised position in a bowl or something so that some of the de-scaler will drain through. Then emptying out, re-filling with water and then iron something that you don't mind getting marked while any residue get's flushed out.
Remove the anti-scale valve from your iron and leave it overnight in a cup of white or distilled malt vinegar or lemon juice.
The soleplate can be cleaned using warm water
and washing-up liquid on a plastic scouring pad suitable for non-stick
coatings. For stubborn stains, use Hi Speed found in your local
supermarket in the laundry isle.
Make a solution of half water and half white vinegar. Fill up your iron and get it good and hot then let it sit a couple hours. flush out and repeat as necessary. Hope you find this helpful. Please give me a fixya rating If this works for you. It works very well as long as it is not completely filled with scale. Once you have it good and clean By a gallon of bottled water at the market and use that for your Iron and you will never have a scale problem again. I learned how to do this 20 years ago from a 80 year old woman from england. If it is really bad you can up the vinegar concentration but do not go higher than 2 cup to 1.
