    I just recently cleaned the iron with vinegar. Can't squirt anything out of the iron because the steam button is stuck completely down.

Fill the Iron with with 50% vinegar and 50% water and then soak 24 hrs water but keep the water level below the max line. Plug in the iron and set the temp to six and stand your iron on the heel and allow to heat for three min. Now unplug the iron and take it to a sink. Move and hold the variable steam dial in the CLEAN position. There may be some hissing and spitting while cleaning so be careful. Continue to hold the dial in the clean position until all the water has emptied. If necessary rock side to side and back to front to get all the water out. When finished release the steam dial plug in the iron and heat for about three mins to dry out the remaining water and unplug.

Hello,

I will advice you fill it with straight vinegar,try squirting some out,leave it sit over night,try and squirt some out,keep working it, dump out the vinegar,rinse it several times to clean, use only distilled water, this should help fix the problem.

Take care.

How do I clean a not self clean ,quick press s506a , not self cleaning black and decker steam iron


Most steam irons can be cleaned deposits by emptying the water and replacing with white vinegar. Let it heat up and use the iron as normal - but on cloth rags instead of clothing. The vinegar breaks down and dissolves the mineral deposits inside that are responsible for sputtering and stains. You can reduce or even eliminate these deposits from forming by using distilled water instead of tap water in the iron - otherwise - run vinegar thru it when it starts acting up. The vinegar "trick" works great on coffee makers, too.

How to fix a Black and Decker Iron?


irons are not meant to be fixed due to their construction. the cost is generally more than a new one ( if you could get the parts)
take it to an appliance service centre to determine exactly what is the fault but be prepared for a "new one" answer.

The steam wheel on black and decker digital advantage is stuck in the no steam position


This problem developed with our iron within the last week. Playing around with it today, I discovered that the dial WOULD respond to "persuasion". I forced it, and it cooperated. Find somebody with a stronger grip and try it.

Steam button stuck


put some vinegar in your iron and swash it around. It will remove the calcium or lime that is making your button stuck. Be sure to run a lot of water through the iron after or your clothes will stink.

Bring the iron to a Hardware store, ask for a set of tools right for the type of screws (maybe Torx, Security Torx, tri-wing, bristol and others).

Once you can open the iron and access to the cord you may change the power cord. it is easy.

Power goes on & off because the power cord is broken. This failure is very common on irons.

Good luck
