SOURCE: Brown spots coming from steam iron

you can mix 50% water with 50% vinager let it set in the iron overnight then turn it on and let the steam run out.What happens is the inside of the iron where the water is had corroded or rusted or has lime deposits.the vinager will break this loose overnight.also after you let the iron steam out all the mixture,flush the iron 4 to 5 times and start using fresh water from a store bought gallon.your tap water is probably full of iron.

SOURCE: CALCIUM BUILDUP COMING OUT OF THE STEAM HOLES...

Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.

Almost all iron instructions suggest using a DE-SCALE once in a while.

Depending on your water type (hard/soft) would give you a guide as to how frequent.

Most supermarkets carry some form of descale liquid
in canada CLR is a good choice
many big box stores also carry it in the appliance areas.
you dont need much and as little as 250Ml will see you for a long time.

I prefer to descale items with a full load of water at the hottest setting
Allow for addition of at least 10% descale
let it sit for about 20 minutes then pour the water out and rinse out well to remove any debris
I often do that twice in case of stubborn deposits.

If yopu ever descal a kettle or tea maker, coffe maker then rense out extra well with cold water to make sure you remove all trace of the descale.

I have a EURO-PRO X Model EP965 Steam Generator seems to working but steam is not coming our, neither for the iron nor for the brush.


I think you have a tank that is calcified and is not getting enough heat to the water assuming there is enough water in it. If it was blocked it would either cause the relief valve to vent or explode.

I would start by cleaning it, my best guess would be to run a few cycles with vinegar in it. This is a mild acid that will dissolve the calcium deposits. Try maybe a 50%-50% with vinegar and water.

Be sure the vinegar will not damage the unit, I do not know.

Hope these links help.

if the iron use electronic control, will be a little difficult to adapt or reset .However i recommend follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

SAND LIKE SUBSTANCE COMING OUT OF IRON


Yes, there is a "Solution" you could use in the reservoir to remove the crud. First of all, STOP using tap water. What you have is mineral deposits inside your iron from using tap water. Use ONLY steam distilled water. I usually find this at my grocery store.
To clean out your iron, use white vinegar in your iron instead of water. This is to CLEAN the iron ONLY! Do NOT use to press cloths! And make sure the steam and/or water flow very clear (free from "sand", dirty water/steam or any other contaminates BEFORE using iron to press your cloths. You may need to flush the iron with water (remember, steam distilled ONLY) more than once to get all of the vinegar out.
Hope this helps...

Brown water and seems like sand or fine grit comes from iron ,when first put on with the steam


sounds like it is time to de-scale the iron to loosen all the deposits inside the unit.
add some white viegar to the water ( which should be distilled water ) and heat up and let the iron steam out the solution. now add just water to the unit shake it and rinse out with water and drain. now do one more vinegar / water de-scaling and rinse out again. now fill with just distilled water and let it steam out and now your iron should be clean as new.

It is spitting and am not getting much steam


Probably needs decalcifying. If the iron has a steam boost button then fill it with water, turn it on and wait for it to heat up, hold it over the kitchen sink and repeatedly press the steam boost button. this may clear any blockages.

If that does not work then you can purchase a cleaning solution from a hardware store that is used to decalcify the iron. You fill the tank with the solution and let it pass through the iron to remove calcium deposits. Instructions will be provided with the solution.

There is a build up of white granular substance in the vents on the bottom. Can't find my manual, but feel pretty sure that this iron said distilled water is not necessary. Now that this happened, is...


Distilled water is not necessary but is recommended as plain tap water in many areas have too much mineral/calcium (the white deposit) that will eventually clog your iron steam vents and container!
You do not need to toss your iron!
To clean the deposit, with iron cold, fill your iron with a 50/50 mixture of clean water and kitchen white vinegar, gently shake the iron, let it stand for say 15 minutes and then turn iron on to a high setting so that you can use shot of steam of cleaning cycle above a kitchen sink. You might need to do this a couple time to remove the inbedded white scale. Wipe the face of the iron with a clean cotton rug as required.
Finally, do the same 'steam' cleaning process with clean water to remove any trace of vinegar which is fairly corrosive.
Instead of the Vinegar mixture, you can also buy an expensive commercial steam iron descaling product from most supermatkets...
Hope the information is useful: let me know how you go. Good luck and be careful as steam against the skin can be pretty painful!

No steam


What you need to do is clean out the steam orifice. (The tiny hole the steam comes out) When water is turned to steam it leaves behind mineral deposits, (Iron, Calcium) Especially if you have "hard" water in your area. Here's what you do. Add some CLR, (Calcium,Lime Remover) to the water you put in the iron, let it sit a while, laying flat, then drain the water out. You want to get the nozzle, to, holding the iron upside down, try to immerse the steam nozzle for a couple of seconds in the CLR or drip some directly on it. You can buy this product in most stores. It works well and fast. Dip your showerhead in it too, you'll be suprised at how it improves water flow. It is safe as long as you follow the instructions.
