Question about Kenmore Irons

I have a Kenmore iron that I bought several years ago and have never been happy with the amount of steam that I get when ironing. The model number is 81667, and it was bought at Sears in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Can you help me?

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.

If you are having steam problems then the cartridge needs changing.

I phoned them (0161 652 1211) and they do sell the cartridge for £5.99 including delivery but are out of stock for a couple of weeks. You have to send them a cheque or postal orders. Good luck.

Send Cheque for £5.99 for each cartridge with note of model etc.

My iron is leaking water. Can it be repaired? I picked it up off the ironing board today and it was sitting in a puddle of water. It continued to pour out the bottom. Is this fixable?


I have had several do this after many many years of use. I did not find a fix but ended up buying a new model. If you do not need to use the steam function, you can still use it. Might want to use a spray bottle with water to add the steam the old fashion way.

The water that is spitting out when I press the steam button is clear and boiling hot. A LOT of water comes out.


Check to see the amount of water the iron requires. If too much is added it will spit water out can also come out of where the water goes in plus the holes the steam should come out. In order for the iron to steam the water must boil inside the iron. Check the instructions and see how mmuch the manufacturer suggests. You may have to fill it several times while doing the ironing. If there is no instruction try consulting the manufacturers web site for information on your make and model of iron. They should have instruction manuals available for download. If that is not the problem it could be cracked on the inside. Give the water adjustment a try first though a lot cheaper in the long run.

Sunbeam steam iron model #GCSBRS-1 does not give steam. 11/2yr old


I have had the same issue with both of these irons. I bought them both thinking they would be a "better" iron with more steam and have not been happy within the first year of owning them. Thanks for the tips.

What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron? I have an expensive European style iron which is no longer producing steam. I have bought an iron descaler/cleaner and have repeated its use. I tried the...


The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

If you need parts, here is the Rowenta repair facility....
California Electric Service in Concord CA (it is the only Rowenta repair station in California) go to either of the following addresses:

Bought iron model no 14722 less than a year ago cannot find reciept for argos how do i get new iron or repaired


You could try the store but I don't think you will have any luck. I buy most of my electrical items from one local store, so if I have lost a rec eipt they can look it up on their system. I recommend a Phillips Steam Iron GC 4430 Don't buy an iron from a supermarket.

Mold


First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar.  I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir.  The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times.  Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting.  Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth
