SOURCE: 4268 iron leaving residue

This will probably just need de-scaling. Buy some descaler and there should be instructions on the packet of how to de-scale an iron. Usually by warming the iron slightly, switching off, emptying out the water and then adding the diluted de-scaler to the iron and leaving it in an almost horizontal but raised position in a bowl or something so that some of the de-scaler will drain through. Then emptying out, re-filling with water and then iron something that you don't mind getting marked while any residue get's flushed out.

SOURCE: My non stick sole plate on my Sunbeam iron is

The discoloration is from a reaction of your water and the shield. The best way to avoid this is to use distilled water rather than tap water or use a water filter. I have had this problem at home as well (i have well water) and using a filter "fixed" the problem for me. Hopefully this will resolve the problem for you as well.

Please let us know if you still have the problem and we'll look for other alternatives.

Why light blinks then goes off when switch is still in the on position


The thermostat in the iron controls the temperature of the iron. The red light indicates when the power applied to heat the iron which is set by the temperature dial on the iron. When it reaches the correct temperature the thermostat turn off the power and that is when the red light switches off.

Iron worked fine yesterday today it turns on but does not heat up Any answers? Is it shot?


Simply, something internally failed. Probably burned out a component, it happens. So yes, it is shot and it's time to invest in a new iron. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Fill it with white distilled vinager and sey it in a shallow pan with enough of the same vinager to cover the shoe. Let that sit overnight then try the clean function again.

Unless you have a 5 or 6 hundred dollar iron, or unless it is brand new, and still under warranty, there is an excellent rule of thumb when an iron quits working: Buy a new one! These days, irons can be purchased cheaply enough that it is WELL worth the money. Not just for the convenience, but for the safety issues. This is an appliance that could burn your house down even if it's in PROPER working order. Hope this helps!!
