Question about Black & Decker AS870 Iron
Just posted a request for help, then continued to search site for an answer. I found this more specific request entry, and realized I'd omitted a perhaps valuable piece of information. The iron, which has suddenly begun spitting water badly rather than steaming, does this at any of the variable steam settings.

It's a possibility that you iron steam making elements are caked with lime and possibly the steam holes as well.
Purchase some "Lime Away" and dilute it 50/50 and pour it into your steam iron (drain all the old water out first and leave the iron unpluged) let sit for an hour or so and drain out, fill it again with clear water shake and drain out do this a couple of time then turn on the steam and see if it works properly, use the first time on an old towel to be sure all the chemical has been rinced out. Good Luck.

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 .
