What should be appro cost to repair phillips perfectcare steam generator - its not producing steam.


You should hear the boiler heat up the water. When you pull/push the trigger, a pump should be activated and steam should be released. If the pump is not working, it could be a defective capacitor according to this article:

A spare capacitor should cost you no more than a few dollars, just find somebody with electronics/soldering repair skills.

Hi guys. I have a Hoover ironspeed IS21-1 steam generator iron. I love this iron it's the best steam generator I've ever had but now once it's heated up and I go to use it as soon as I press the button...


Try unplugging everything that is using that circuit because it's possible that you have too many items plugged up. Also try other outlet.

How do I get the boiler on my rowenta steam generator to fill? I was given this model.


You should only use distiller water in the steamer. Never ever use tap water! This is what caused lime and scale build up.
Since it's to late, you have nothing to loose by trying this to descale the unit:

Put up to one cup of white vinegar into the reservoir. Fill 3/4 of the way with water. Turn unit on and let it heat up, but DO NOT RUN STEAM THROUGH THE LINE. Once heated up, turn unit off and let it set for hours. Drain and rinse well. Then run a water only batch through the steam cycle. There are companies that sell special de scaling solutions. But hopefully, the vinegar will work.

Wet steam coming out of iron


You have to take part the iron by unscrewing the three bolts on the side handle with a small phillips driver. Then loose the allen screw on one side of the black thermostat wheel to unloosen it. Then take out the two bolt plastic protectors under the handle and unscrew the two allen bolts, carefully separate the top from the botton of the iron, carefully not to pry loose the cables from the top to the hot shoe.
On the back you will see a small white square box, that is the thermostat, which has a button on top, all you need to do is to push it in. This will make the iron heat up unless you have a thermostat failure (Black wheel with temperature indicators), which you will need to order the part and change it.

Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator doesn't.


OK... so I have fixed my problem of NO STEAM, just lots of water coming out of the iron press plate itself... I had already cleaned the boiler, so I tried adding 1/4 tsp - 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda to the water and flushing it through. From what came out of the iron press plate, I would say the problem was caused by a build up of goop (technical term) inside the iron. Once cleared, the iron is steaming away again. Please note, u will need to have an old towel handy if this is ur problem, 'cos until it starts getting better, there is a fair amount of water coming out of the iron press plate. Just add the bicarb to the water reserve and use the steam buttons to bring the bicarb through. Do not attempt to iron clothing with the bicarb in the water!!! Carolyn ;)
