How do i stop water dripping onto my clothes


ensure that your iron temprature is high enough to generate steam. if ironing delicate cloth ensure your steam option is switched off. if your iron has a filler cap or water container ensure they are fitted securely. water dripping usually when the iron is too cold to turn it to steam or you have a leak somwhere.

Shark g1468 auto shut off (iron won't come/stay on)


First let me say I HATE AUTO SHUT OFF!!! It sounds like it has wore out. the computer part that tells it when to shut off it not working. It would be cheaper to buy a new one vs fixing yours. If I were you, find an older iron that has LOTS of steam vents and NO AUTO SHUTOFF at your local goodwill, thrift store or garage sale.

My iron rowenta leaks when before and after i!m iroeing


my iron is different to yours but i used to have leaks as well.

for me it was because i have a heat setting dial that indicates that the steam function is activated when set to a very high temperature.

i also have a push lever on the top of the iron that controls how much, if any, steam is produced by the iron.

the amount of steam is regulated by letting more or less water through to be vaporised by the heating element.

if the heat setting is low and the steam setting has not been switched off then water is being allowed through but the element is not hot enough to vaporise the water. the result is water pooling and either dribbling through onto the clothing you are ironing or running off when you sit the iron up.

maybe it will help if you turn the steam setting off while the iron is not in use.

My rowenta professional iron drips, how can I fix it?


Are you using distilled water to refill your iron? Distilled water can cause drips if used all the time. Refill with tap water and see if the drips stop.

Dripping brown-spotted water on clothes while ironing.


Your water could have high iron content, therefore empty out the old water and use Distilled water in the iron.

If you are using Distilled water already then it's a problem with the inside of the iron. Get a new iron.

Tefal Express 1750 has water dripping from it when using steam


That means that water is not heated properly and does not produce steam.

Try a complete descaling, often this happens because the water reservoir and heating element is covered with scale.

Rowenta DM880 Auto shutoff - Shuts off too frequently


This is a problem with a lot of Rowenta irons. It is the auto shut off that is not working properly and the only way to fix it is to have it disassembled and the switch hardwired to be on whenever the iron it plugged in. It is a thermal metal switch and it just stops working and then the iron will not turn on and the yellow light blinks.

B&D steam xpress 660 faulty switch to replace


I'm not familiar with your particular model , or Irons themselves.
So forgive me if im wrong ,
I think it could be a safety feature , to prevent accidents, so replacing the switch will most likely make no difference.

But if you still find yourself needing to Iron sideways , possibly whilst extreme bungee-jumping or entering the earth's outer atmosphere !! LoL sorry couldn't help myself there , you could try phyically bypassing the switch itself.

There would be two main ways to approach such a task, depending on the cut-out system utilized by the iron.

[u]Electrical diversion[/u]

Usually safety cut-out switches will interrupt the power of one polarity only, either positive or negative. especially where water is involved. This is easily bypassed by simply joining the matching 2 wires together either side of the switch to complete the circuit making the safety switch obsolete. There may be other wires for indicator lights ect which are better left alone for now.

[u]Mechanical diversion[/u]

The iron may utilize the water or other moving component to interrupt the power supply .Such as a water level indicator in a kettle, which is positioned to activate only when in sideways position. Again you could bypass the wires as above or bind the mechanism to prevent the movement being possible.

If it does use the water method , running the iron with no or low water in it may work...But there's probably a safety feature for that too....LoL

Anyways hope it helps you out a little
