Question about Steam Fast SP-660 Iron with Auto Shut-off

2 Answers

Steam Question On the sp-660, is there a button or switch for the steam feature. I have filled the unit with distilled water thinking the steam feature was automatic. No Steam. I have looked all over the unit for a button or switch to turn on the steam but no luck. The steam lite is not on. Can anyone tell me the secret?

Found the answer. The steam button is built into the handle. Push the button and you have steam.

Hi. We just got the 660 steam fast. We found the red steam burst button. We are just not happy with being able to use the steam burst about 10 pushes. Then the steam burst light goes out and we can't continue to iron with the steam feature anymore. Any hint?

My steampress 660 is has black stuff coming out


Hi Beverly. The "dried stuff" is scale which occurs naturally in tap water. You should always use DISTILLED water - buy litre bottles (approx.$2.ea Home Brand) all supermarkets. Electricity off, empty out all the water in your iron. Half fill with distilled water, cover the filling hole, and shake water inside iron side to side, up and down, vigorously, empty distilled water out and watch carefully to see if water runs clear or has sediment coming out - may need to repeat this action. When water runs clear re-fill iron as normal with distilled water. Put iron on lowest STEAM setting, LIFT up iron but with soleplate facing down onto an old rag/towel (brown water may come out) press steam button on & off to try & clear the holes. Turn iron off, allow to cool. Thick cloth wipe soleplate over getting into the holes if they have not cleared. Triple wrap a wooden skewer in cloth soaked in white viegar or "scale remover" and circulate it around the blocked holes. Go very carefully do not scratch the coating on the soleplate or holes - very important. Let us all know how this goes please and if I have been of help, do hope so. Good luck, Chris

Things to try:

1. Fill iron with tap water ... distilled water may cause leakage.
1a. If you have very hard water, dilute with 50% distilled.
2. Fill the iron while upright, then allow to fully heat before using.
3. Use higher steam setting ... lower settings can cause leakage.
4. Allow your iron to "recover" (i.e. build up steam) if you have a spray or "steam burst" button. Trying to use it too rapidly can cause leakage.


Be sure to clean your iron according to your manufacturer's directions. Chances are, that means using a vinegar-water solution to break up any mineral deposits. You can find a helpful video, here: http://laundry.about.com/od/productreviews/qt/vincleaniron.htm

SAFETY FIRST. Try not to work on a hot iron, or one that is plugged in to a power outlet. Water and electricity do not play well together.

Mineral buildup in my steamer


To eliminate mineral deposits and prevent corrosion on your steam iron, give it an occasional cleaning by filling the reservoir with undiluted white vinegar. Place the iron in an upright position, switch on the steam setting, and let the vinegar steam through it for 5-10 minutes. Then refill the chamber with clean water and repeat. Finally, give the water chamber a good rinsing with cold, clean water.

Steam not working on iron then lots of water pouring out of holes


fill water chamber with vinegar and let it sit for 24 hours.
empty vinegar - fill with distilled water - turn on and press the steam button to clean the holes in the plate of mineral deposits which accumulate from using tap water. after a few shots of steam all should be clear - empty and refill with distilled water and it should be good to go.

Brown water and seems like sand or fine grit comes from iron ,when first put on with the steam


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.

Simac Stirelli 9000 steam iron spews rusty steam and smells like burnt apples


Your steam iron has been filled with 'tap' water that may have been contaminated (thus the smell). Rust develops more rapidely in Steam Iron chambers when distilled water is not used: to clean the 'enclosure' of the steam iron from rust and smell, over a sink or outdoor, fill 'cold iron' with a 50/50 water/vinegar and a teaspoon of bicarb, let it stand for about 10 mins, then turn the iron on and let it steam the mixture out while shaking the iron gently (DO NOT BURN YOURSELF! STEAM IS HOTER THAN BOILED WATER!). Refill and Steam flush again with Clean water (distilled preferred). Repeat the steps until the rust has been completely dissolved (check by steam ironing on clean pieces of disposible kitchen paper towel. Use the Power steam or Flush function of the Iron if available. Hope it helps!

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'
