Remove the handle on the iron. Then fill the opening with two measures of table salt, using the handle's device to measure the salt. Add 2 oz. of water in the opening, then reattach the handle. Connect the handle and plug into an outlet. After a few seconds, the iron should begin steaming. It is then ready to use.

see the instruction from your manual:
Check the owner's manual for your iron to learn the manufacturer's suggestions for cleaning, what water to use, and storage tips.
Soft-water systems add minerals that can harm an electric steam iron and your clothes so don't fill the iron with softened water. Instead, use filtered or distilled water.

For my singer electronic steam press esp2 can i use deironise water instead of distilled as i can not get any distilled water in any of the shops in my area.


Hi,
You can try the deionized water but you may have trouble with it producing enough steam...water that is too pure may not produce steam well depending on the way it is heated.
If it does not produce enough steam just add a bit of salt to the water and it will work well.

How do you run clean cycle - I have lost the manual


Self-Cleaning and Maintaining Sole Plate

Use the self-cleaning feature once a month by moving the steam lever back and forth from the "dry" setting several times. This will remove any residue from the steam valve and ensure that the steam system works properly.

Wipe the sole plate with a soft, damp cloth while the iron is cool and unplugged.

Run the iron over a cotton cloth several times to remove any residue from the sole plate.

Cleaning Anti-Calcium Feature

Fill the water cup that came with your iron. Use enough water to reach the Sunbeam logo in the top corner of the cup.

Add a teaspoon of salt to the cup and stir.

Empty the salt solution into the water reservoir in your iron.

Allow the iron to stand for 15 minutes, then empty out the water reservoir.Repeat this cycle with a second cupful of salt water.

Rinse out the reservoir with clean water. You should perform this cleaning once a month.

Where do you put the water in for the steam?


The water fills through the hole on the front of the unit! Use a measuring cup and pour it in the hole....it should have a clear guage on the handle to show the water level.

No steam


What you need to do is clean out the steam orifice. (The tiny hole the steam comes out) When water is turned to steam it leaves behind mineral deposits, (Iron, Calcium) Especially if you have "hard" water in your area. Here's what you do. Add some CLR, (Calcium,Lime Remover) to the water you put in the iron, let it sit a while, laying flat, then drain the water out. You want to get the nozzle, to, holding the iron upside down, try to immerse the steam nozzle for a couple of seconds in the CLR or drip some directly on it. You can buy this product in most stores. It works well and fast. Dip your showerhead in it too, you'll be suprised at how it improves water flow. It is safe as long as you follow the instructions.

Holes clogged with plastic


I would put the un-plugged iron in to the freezer so as to get the plastic as rigid as possible and then try to extract all of the plastic from the steam holes.

As far as cleaning the irons surface.

Step1 Place about a teaspoon of salt on a paper or cotton towel and run the iron over it on the high setting gently with the steam off. This will cause the dirt to stick to the salt and will wipe away easily. Step2 Rub the iron across newspapers to remove a waxy build up on the surface. Use the high setting with the steam off. Step3 Apply ammonia to a rag and use it to wipe the surface of the iron to remove oil. Use a separate cloth that is wet with water to rinse it off. Make sure the iron is turned off. Step4 Combine equal parts vinegar and baking soda and scrub the surface of the iron with it. Use a separate clean cloth to wipe away any residue. Step5 Heat in a saucepan a cup of vinegar and sprinkle in about a teaspoon of salt. Heat the mixture until the salt is dissolved. Use this to clean the iron's surface with a clean cloth. Use a second cloth to wipe away any residue.

Good luck

Tefal Pro Express - Constant Steam (Model 2932)


Great answer from Jacquief above. To which I add try giving the base of the iron and its button, a very light tapping with a tack hammer (much smaller and lighter than a standard hammer) wrapped in a tea-towel. This can often break up the lime scale seal which has formed somewhere inside and is not responding to Jacquief's method. In future never use scale laden tap water in your iron, use $2 litre bottles of distilled water from any supermarket.

Iron Cleaning


If steam iron clogs from minerals in water, follow use-guide directions for cleaning, or use a commercial iron cleaner. A fine needle in the nozzle hole may open it again. Sometimes "steaming" will remove lint clogging the iron; fill with at least 1/4 cup water, set it to "steam", and hold in the air or set flat on wire rack over heat and moisture resistant surface like counter protective mat. Let steam until empty. Using only distilled water in steam irons helps avoid mineral buildup. Or if you have burned stains or darkness on the bottom you can Heat equal parts of vinegar and salt in small pan rub solution on cooled iron surface to remove dark or burned stains
