Try a commercial De-Scaler.
If your in a hard-water area. the iron will be heavilly scaled-up.
If there is a steam surge button, on the iron. Face it downwards and push the button several times.

Why has my Perfectcare aqua stopped emitting steam

You should hear the boiler heat up the water. When you pull/push the trigger, a pump should be activated and steam should be released. If the pump is not working, it could be a defective capacitor according to this article:

A spare capacitor should cost you no more than a few dollars, just find somebody with electronics/soldering repair skills.

Check the hose for something clogging it. It will be past the flattened area (by that I mean further from the steam cleaner). It sounds like something got stuck in the hose, and as the steam cleaner kept sucking on the hose, it caused the hose to flatten.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord +thermical fuse with VOM . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat (

Good day I have an euro pro iron and it leaks all the time leaving water on washed clothes.also it leaks out of the bottom??

The water may come out at the bottom instead of steam. this is due to insufficient heat produced. So switch on your ironbox and keep it in full temperature using the knob. then the water will be coming out as steam and not as water itself. Try again.

I hope this is useful to you

My tefal aqua is not taking out creases but i can see steam coming out of the iron I have tried the instructions according to the manual for cleaning but still no good please help

Some creases cannot be removed with any steam iron.

Dampen the area with the creases or place a wet press cloth over the area and try again.

MY rowenta Iron wont produce steam. IT heats up

Sounds like the Steam control valve is blocked or not opening. try cleaning the iron with a kit from wallmart or similar store. Failing that :It may be cheaper to buy a new one from wallmart or similar store.
