Boiler on the iron was empty,used by someone that didn't know this type iron.Turned iron on and later heard this awful noise and husband tried to release pressure and cap blew off but no water was in...

I do not use this model, but it would appear the iron is not affected, just the boiler - like setting an empty tea pot on a hot burner.

Is there any warning that the tank is empty before turning the iron on?

I would refer to the manual for cleaning before using the iron and would not loan anything more valuable than a cup of sugar to anyone.

Hand steamer conair GS15R will not produce steam. It is on, it is full of water, the body gets warm, and it makes noises like it is steaming but nothing comes out.


The iron steam lines may be clogged with limescale.

Try first using descaling solution to clean the lines.
Do descaling several times.

If that does not work, then the thermostat may have started malfunctioning and cutting off earlier than normal. This will cause water not getting enough temperature, and iron not steaming.

Try using a descaler product, often that can fix the problem.

Iron stopped working suddenly

perhaps the thermostat is irons are cheap to replace i would try cleaning /soaking the tank to remove lime scale. or strip the iron down checking thermostat and conections.
