Shark iron leaks water from the bottom of the body where the power cord come out. could it be a crack in the holding tank? Is there a way to fix it,or will I need to purchase a new iron?


It is hard to assess what would be the cause, but I think your diagnosis may be correct, of a possible crack, or a tube has come loose. You tube has instructions on how to disassemble and iron if you are up to it and have the tools. Then you'd have to order a replacement part, and re-assemble. I'd just go to walmart & buy a new iron! But that's me! :)

How do I clean my iron? It sometimes stains my clothes and drips water from the bottom. Please help. Thank you.


Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

My iron keeps gushing water out of the steam holes


If you have over-filled it, or it's not hot enough, then water will come out the bottom. Make sure that the temp is in the "steam" range, and you give it a few minutes to warm up.

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

Philips steam iron no steam and red tap light is flashing even when filled up with water it's still getting hot and water is boiling but steam fiction not working as red light will not go out


It sounds like the flow holes are CLOGGED with scale inside. To clean it out:

1. Drain the water/steam out the pour-in shoot at the top of the handle, over the sink. Is any crap coming out?

2. Take some VINEGAR and pour it straight into the fill pour-in shoot. Don\'t dilute it. Fill up the IRON to full line. Let the vinegar SOAK the inside of the COLD iron for 15-20 minutes, by placing it FACE DOWN on an old bath towel, on a heat-resistant surface, such as a granite counter top, or metal cookie sheet. Don\'t put the towel on the ironing board!!! It may get stained badly. Let it sit, COLD for 20 minutes. You can swirell the vinegar around by shaking the iron.



Stand it up on its flat end, with the vinegar inside, still. Take some fresh vinegar and dip Q-tips into the vinegar and clean the slots and holes on the bottom plate. Any burn streaks or soil can be removed with wiping the plate with vinegar. After you clean all the holes and slots with vinegar from the outside, TURN ON THE IRON with the vinegar inside. The vinegar will heat up and should come out the holes. If any holes are not blowing vinegar/steam, clean them with q-tips again. Don\'t let all of the vinegar inside steam out!! Just heat it enough to make sure all of the holes are clean. Some white film may come out of the holes on to the face plate--it is calcium build-up from using tap water in the iron.

Now DUMP out vinegar inside the iron and reservoir through the pour-shoot You may see crud and crap coming out. Repeat the process of filling it up, steaming through the holes etc. until the vinegar comes out clear!!!

DON\'T use tap water in any IRON. Use distilled water, or even bottled drinking water (without flavoring, additives, of course). This will prevent corrosion and calcium build up in the iron.



ALWAYS completely drain the iron from the pour-in spout each time you are finished using it!! After pouring out the tank\'s water, you can set the iron to STEAM HIGH, and force any water inside to boil off and out of iron.! Never keep water in the reservoir or iron.

I set my iron, when hot, and done using it, with the pointed side DOWN in the sink drain to make sure it is dry.

So clean it with vinegar often, use bottled drinking water or better, distilled water and it will prevent this.

Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta


Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:

Brown water drips


Hi,
This may be down to contaminants in your water supply, or any "ironing water" you may be using.

There will be a build up inside the hotplate where the water is vapourised.

To clear this, refer to your manual or simply put on high steam setting, rest on it's heel, and wait for the indicator light to go out, then unplug, and hold horizontal over the sink. Press any steam boost buttons you have untill the iron is cold - and you just get water flowing out.

The best and cheapest water to use I've found - is the condensate from condensing tumble dryers. Which most people just tip away! It is condensed steam - so contains no minerals to fur up irons. If you don't have one - ask a neighbour for a few gallons.
