Fill the reservoir completely up with water and hit the reset button (on the left) for the water. You should hear a buzzing sound and the green light should go steady again.

Re: its gone off!

The green light indicates the unit thinks it is out of water. Take of rewervoir; make sure the inlets are not plugged. Open the little plug on side, clean tank w/ clear water only, and shake out all water completely. Put it all back together, but leave reservoir off. Turn on and run unit "dry". Your should hear a "flutter" sound as the unit trys to pump water from missing reservoir, the heater/steamer should be sizzling hot & pressurizing. THEN the green light if ome ON, asking you to switch it off, refill & install the water reservoir. If things don't happen in that sequence, you should be able to determine what is wrong.

Yousaf/Tony, Either the switch is defective or the heat element has gone bad, probably not cost effective to repair.

No steam. I pressed the steam button on the underside of iron handle and no staem.

There 's a leaked capacitor in the circuit board. You just have to replace it and it works again.

Hi i have an edbs920 steam generator iron, my problem is that it will dry iron but wont steam up anymore, after turning the system on the power indicator light should turn from the flashing orange pre...

it can be that one of the thermostats controlling the water flow pump into the steam generator has become open circuit, caution is advised as this can potentially overheat the steam generator for there being lack of water, depending on your system design...i could be wrong just a guess !
