My iron every so often makes a high pitch noise


There are several possible answers:

1. The iron has some scale build up and the steam is escaping and clearing a path until it builds up again.

2. If you have an iron with an electronic display or any type of circuit board - we have heard components on them make noise usually no problems.

3. It is highly suggested to read through the owner's manual as this may be a simple cleaning procedure or you may be directed to contact the manufacturer.

4. If are unsure, please contact the manufacturer for further guidance - your safety is of the utmost importance.

Best wishes,

My Rowenta pro precision iron steam station gets hot but doesn't steam. How do I get the iron to produce steam?

There are two cause. One the boiler resistance doesnĀ“t turn of because of snap disc or bimetal thermostat fault or because a coil in the working valve (security valve). But if you can heard a click of opening movement of valve when you push the button it is able to be a thermostat.

The iron has been all descaled, however we cannot get any steam when pressing the button. It is a Tefal express generator model 3 years old.

Once you have descaled the boiler and refilled your frontpiece of the iron itself (hopefully with distilled water - any supermarket) you press the "reset"/ "restart" button on the back end of the steam generating unit. When the water is hot enough press steam button & turbo button a few times - WARNING: make sure iron is facing downwards and cover ironing board with old rag because initially brown steam splatter will come out on first few steam releases.

2) other wise you must go to some repair shop for fix it.

The iron heats up, but when the steam generator button is pressed no steam gets through at all.

Chemicals and minerals in the water have probably clogged the vents. Empty the water. Pour 1/2 cup WHITE vinegar into the reservoir. Turn on your iron and let it heat. Then press the steam generator button several times until the vinegar is gone. Unplug the iron. As it is cooling, take acotton swab and gently wipe the surface of the vents. You can probe GENTLY with the swab, but don't push it into the vent or the cotton head may get stuck.
As you're pressing the steam button, keep the iron in the ironing position, not standing. If the vinegar just will not come out of the vents, use a wooden toothpick to loosen the build up.
This always works well for me and I hope it does for you.
If so, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

I have a Swan S15040 steam generator iron, the stand by light is permanently flashing, no matter what temperature setting i put the iron on. No steam is generated. I have tried holding the steam button...

I had same issue , now , once you turn the unit on , you should see displayed 3 steam jets and the flashing standby , turn the dial on the iron to max ,press the steam button on the machine to max steam , leave for a minute or so , now press the steam button on the iron , does it make a noise ? if it does , slightly raise the whole front end of the unit ( easier if you have the iron on the worktop and not on the unit !) for a minute then try and press the steam button on the iron again . I think there is a bit of an issue about the conection between the water tank and the filter . This solved my issues and i do hope it will help you .

Need manual for swan steam generater iron model s15040

you have probably solved this by now but
I just got the same model new
switch on instructions as follows
press and HOLD the POWER button for 3 seconds to switch the unit on
once temperature has been reached, press and HOLD the steam button on top of the iron for up to 20 seconds
this will prime the steam pump and only has to be done once for each ironing session
the pump noise will stop once it has been primed with water
hope this helps if still needed
if you need the user guide, let me know, I'll scan it for you

Russell Hobbs Steamglide 2200 - no steam

Same with mine! What you have to do is keep taking the water cannister off and pushing back on until its lined up correctley. Also have the whole unit at the same height as the ironing board, that should do it! Can you help with filters? I cant find them anywhere.

Tefal express

The rumbling noise is the steam generator working - make sure the water reservoir is full and press the on button. Inside the machine will be doing its stuff and generating steam - this is the noise that you are hearing and when you press the release switch (normally under the handle of the iron) then the steam will be expelled. The noiose comes on and off as it is making more steam - this is normal. I use ordinary tap water but don't have hard water so have no problems - also make sure you empty out the base occassionally - should be a large pressure screw behind the cable holder - make sure iron is off and cold before doing this and then shake it out and residue bits will come out - then flush out with water. These are brilliant to use and you will wonder how you managed before having this - Happy ironing.
