Question about Conair Compact Garment Steamer Iron

1 Answer

I bought a Durabrand TSK-7538S Steam Iron for $12 at Wal-Mart. It's fine but the "instructions" are poor. I can't figure out how to set the temperature. I mean, I know you turn the dial, but where's the pointer/mark that you are supposed to align with the dial?

    Unless you have this iron in hand, I doubt you can answer my query, unless you can tell me where I can find the Durabrand company, which probably isn't a real company anyway.

    The instructions leave a lot to be desired.There is one setting on the

    steam dial I can't even identify. The instructions don't even identify it.

Okay. thats not a bad question, i got the same iron, and i know what your're talking about. the "line" you're talking about is not a line at all, it's actually a tiny plastic indicater at the bottom of the dial. it's blue too, so you cant see it, so feel on it with your finger. =) email me if i helped. solacewishes@yahoo.com

I have lost my instructions on how to "self clean"


Straight from the manual:
http://www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf

Fill the iron with tap water to the max mark on the water tank.
Be sure that variable steam lever is set to minimum.
Stand iron on heel and plug in. • Set thermostat to ••• setting.
Once heated, unplug iron.
Hold iron horizontally over the sink with the soleplate pointing away from body.
Move the variable steam lever completely to the right and hold in the self clean position for one minute.



Warning: Doing this will cause steam and hot water to be ejected from the soleplate. Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body.
• Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate.
• Carefully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the soleplate (although this has no effect on glide or performance.)
Warning: Iron and soleplate may still be very hot. Exercise care while wiping.
• Place iron on heel and leave to cool. Before using iron after self cleaning, test steam and burst
of steam on an old towel or cloth than can be discarded.

Suddenly began leaking and overheating, such as too hot for demin but only set of min. Last time this happened I bought a new iron. The new one has been dropped - last year but nothing recently and this...


The iron started leaking from front and back. took iron back to Wal Mart and got another iron and it did the same thing. I cannot use the iron because it is hard to hold the steam almost burn your hands because it leaks a lot all over my cloths . I was so disgusted with the iron until I just put it in the corner and bought another iron from wal mart. I did not know if they would take the iron back , because I had it for a bout (3) months.

Rust


A few cheap n easy ideas I hope will help you...

  • You could try using a car radiator flush treatment such as rust & scale inhibitor to flush the water tank.

  • Fill water tank with Coca-Cola . Let it soak at least overnight and rinse out thoroughly.Think im crazy? Leave a old coin in a glass a coke for a few days and see what happens!!
  • Refrain from using tap water to fill the iron. Use distilled water ,it's has less of the impurities that cause rust and other metal-oxides forming
  • If all else fails use a small spray bottle of water on the clothes that are at most risk of being soiled.
That way you can add fragrance oil or other things to the water that would normally get boiled off /or pollute the water tank :)
