Hello,

First remove the water tank, take out the cartridge, fill to the line with tap water, replace the cartridge and slid back the water tank into the steam generator. Plug in, press the power button and wait. This is one disadvantage of these irons as you have to wait about two minutes for it to 'power up'. A green power light will flash while it is heating up and will remain on to indicate it is ready. Select your heat setting; one, two or three dots the same as most irons on a dial on the iron itself under the handle. Next select how much steam you want. This is done by pressing a button on the back of the base unit which has three red light indicators with one, two or three little pictures of some steam indicating your choice. Level one produces 22.5grams of steam per minute, level two produces 45g/min and level three 90g/min. By way of comparison a conventional iron gives about 20-40 g/min steam maximum. It is also possible to have no steam if required.
The next stage also differs from a conventional steam iron. You need to depress the steam button which is located on the underside of the handle where your fingers would naturally be. This button needs to be held down for about a minute to clear the system of air. While this is happening there is a clicking noise which is rather strange at first. When it is ready the clicking will fade and steam will be coming out the plate. It is now ready to go.All this needs to be done each time before you start ironing which is fine if you have a lot to do but not if you only want to do one thing quickly for work or school.
While you are ironing, the steam button on the underside of the handle has to be held down all the time that you require steam.

My euro pro ironing solution model 1000 does not heat up or allow steam to be released. It does make steam. What could be wrong?


The steam passages may be clogged, especially if ordinary water containing minerals was used to fill it. The instructions for your Euro-Pro iron probably specify use of distilled water.

Steam not working on iron then lots of water pouring out of holes


fill water chamber with vinegar and let it sit for 24 hours.
empty vinegar - fill with distilled water - turn on and press the steam button to clean the holes in the plate of mineral deposits which accumulate from using tap water. after a few shots of steam all should be clear - empty and refill with distilled water and it should be good to go.

How to empty water form iron when finished


Unless you are not going to use the iron for a long time, especially if you use distilled water to fill your steam iron, I would really not bother.
However, if you do want to empty the iron after using it, you have a couple options:
- With the iron still hot, very carefully, use the cleaning function or the 'shot' of steam until no more steam is generated above the sink preferrably.
- With the iron unplug/NO electricty: very carefully tip the water out from whe filling hole above the sink - be aware that the water will remain extremely hot for a long time so avoid splashing water on yourrsel!
Hope the information is useful.

Russell Hobbs Steamglide 2200 - no steam


Same with mine! What you have to do is keep taking the water cannister off and pushing back on until its lined up correctley. Also have the whole unit at the same height as the ironing board, that should do it! Can you help with filters? I cant find them anywhere.

got this off the manual for the IS 7800

CLEANING
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
descale.
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
water.
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.

Red light flashing


Blinking red light is a standby phase, its not going to get hot like this. Shake it or just start ironing, the red light will go solid and the plate will heat up. The red light will go off when the plate is hot enough. It will go on again (solid) after a few minutes to keep the plate at the right temperature. If you leave it standing around for a while it will begin blinking again (standby).

These irons are known for malfunctioning though, mine stays in standby and the plate never heats up! Hopefully yours is fine.

Irons are generally not worth repairing. That said, try to clean out any mineral deposits with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water. Put in the usual amount. Warm the iron, try to get steam. Empty the iron and do it twice more. Then, rinse it out with plain water.

You may get lucky!

No Steam From Iron


Hi,

I can tell you the stem rod for the steam control is choke or faulty. These prevent the water going onto the sole plate that why no steam.You've to send for servicing at your nearest repair shop or agent.
