SOURCE: euro-pro EP1005 iron--iron heats -blower works-but no steam

You may not need a new iron, my wife's iron is doing the same thing. take the top of the ironing board off (you will need a torx t-20 security bit driver), under the tank is a connection that may have rusted out re-connet it and turn the iron on. Once it heats up, check the tank for leaks. The tank may need to be replace as well or try a 5-minute epoxy type glue on the leaks once it has cooled. If the tank leaks you will get not get enlugh pressure building up to get the steam.

Pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; I pried it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only). Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently full it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is plastic). Replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir. You should be back in the ironing business now! :) It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused for a period of time; as if the valve sticks when dry. I'm going to leave water in it this time, although the instruction manual says not to.

Leaks water out all the time. Clothes wet or rust marked.


OMG, how frustrating to be ironing and water shoot out everywhere from this iron....So, to remedy it, I have turned off the steam, use it as a dry iron, and have a spray bottle handy to spray as I iron...love the feel of this iron, but hate the water everywhere...

Leeks water sometimes and steam does not always work


I would trash it. New ones are very inexpensive now at Walmart, 10-20 dollars.
