Does not heat up


Visual Check:
1. Do you smell burned electrical wire? If none,
2. Check the cord for damage, and the outlet for electricity ((plug in another device and see if it turns on)). If none,
3. Does the water reservoir or iron face have visible mineral deposits (i.e. need cleaning)?

Possible solutions:

1. On COLD, UNPLUGGED iron, clean working surface with non-abrasive cloth.

2. Try Vinegar & Water cleaning to remove mineral deposits (if warranty allows):

Mix equal parts water and white vinegar (abt. 1/3 cup each).

Pour into water reservoir.
Turn on the iron with steam option.
Allow to work, upright, for 2-3 minutes.
Turn all controls to low before unplugging.
Drain into sink ...carefully, it may be hot!
Flush with plain water.
Reheat iron and test on scrap cloth to clear any residue.

BE SAFE and work carefully. If iron still does not heat after thorough inspection and cleaning, the unit may need a qualified technician.

Bosch Sensixx B25L


see the instruction from your manual:
Check the owner's manual for your iron to learn the manufacturer's suggestions for cleaning, what water to use, and storage tips.
Soft-water systems add minerals that can harm an electric steam iron and your clothes so don't fill the iron with softened water. Instead, use filtered or distilled water.
2) if the iron does not heat a( test the power cord for open or defective b) and thermostat for adjust c) test the thermal fuse d) test the heating element for open.
God bless you

Sunbeam steam valet instructions


How to fill your Sunbeam Steam Valet
Here is how you fill your Steam Valet. Press the small button on the back of the handle and pull bottom of handle apart from the top half of steam valet. Then take off the white cap on the inside of the handle and fill with water to top. Place cap back onto the opening and slide handle back and click in place. Plug in and you're ready to steam within a few minutes. If it spits out water let heat up a little longer if that doesn't stop it then tie a thin cloth over the top part where steam comes out to keep the water from spitting out onto your fabric. Hope these instructions are clear enough. More questions about this iron go to www.manualslib.com.

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.

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.
