Question about Sunbeam Classic 3957 Iron
How do i take the iron apart?
SOURCE: No steam
It appears that your rocker switch is broken, I am attempting to find a source for the switch and the screw driver that removes the screws holding the unit together

My Tefal is the same, steams for a while then nothing. I have tried to descale with no joy. I think it may be a problem with an internal thermostat that cuts out stopping the steam.

SOURCE: Iron not heating up...
Unless you have a 5 or 6 hundred dollar iron, or unless it is brand new, and still under warranty, there is an excellent rule of thumb when an iron quits working: Buy a new one! These days, irons can be purchased cheaply enough that it is WELL worth the money. Not just for the convenience, but for the safety issues. This is an appliance that could burn your house down even if it's in PROPER working order. Hope this helps!!

You're seeing hard water deposits and maybe a little rust. Use some CLR and pour in the iron and let it sit with it off. Shake it a bit and let it clean it all out, then rinse with clean water. (Vinegar will work too)

You may not need a new iron, my wife's iron is doing the same thing. take the top of the ironing board off (you will need a torx t-20 security bit driver), under the tank is a connection that may have rusted out re-connet it and turn the iron on. Once it heats up, check the tank for leaks. The tank may need to be replace as well or try a 5-minute epoxy type glue on the leaks once it has cooled. If the tank leaks you will get not get enlugh pressure building up to get the steam.
