I don't know if you have the number for the euro pro customer service department; but, I had the same problem, called customer service, and had a manual emailed to me. The manual came within a couple of hours via email. In case you don't have the number and still need a manual for your unit, try calling 800.798.7398. I hope this helps and good luck!

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.

How do i stop water dripping onto my clothes


ensure that your iron temprature is high enough to generate steam. if ironing delicate cloth ensure your steam option is switched off. if your iron has a filler cap or water container ensure they are fitted securely. water dripping usually when the iron is too cold to turn it to steam or you have a leak somwhere.

Euro steam evolution iron model 6399


I just got my iron and got into an immediate argument with my husband when I read the manuel, which said "made to use tap water"....."NEVER USE 100% DISTILLED WATER". I was about to return it when I decided to call the customer service number and lo and behold, my husband is right! I\'ll never live that one down. The person on the phone said they\'d been trying to get the manufacturer to change that in the manuals for a long time. I\'m really annoyed - but you do need to use distilled water in this iron. I\'m still thinking about returning it just because of the argument.

Good day I have an euro pro iron and it leaks all the time leaving water on washed clothes.also it leaks out of the bottom??


The water may come out at the bottom instead of steam. this is due to insufficient heat produced. So switch on your ironbox and keep it in full temperature using the knob. then the water will be coming out as steam and not as water itself. Try again.


I hope this is useful to you
Thanks

It leaks water when I iron sometimes staining my clothes with black streaks or water stains.


Hello :

1:Clean your steam iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Your iron is more likely to leak when it has not been cleaned properly. Plus, the water that leaks from a steam iron that hasn't been cleaned will likely be dirty and stain your fabric. Every steam iron brand is different, so be sure to check the manual that came with your iron or browse the manufacturer's website for instructions on keeping your steam iron in good working order.

2:Use your steam iron on a rigid surface like an ironing board. In a rush, you might be tempted to quickly iron a blouse or pants on the nearest available surface like a bed, carpet or even on a table with a towel draped over it. However, these surfaces may not provide the proper amount of level padding for successful steam ironing, and leaks are more likely to occur. Take the time to set up your ironing board for smooth steam ironing to reduce water leaks on a bumpy surface.

3:Allow your steam iron to heat fully in the upright position before ironing. Because your steam iron is designed to convert water into steam that will easily smooth out wrinkles on bulky fabrics, you can avoid leaks by ensuring your iron has time to get the water to the correct temperature. If you lay your steam iron in the horizontal position too quickly, water that is not hot enough to convert to steam will leak. Give the iron a chance to heat up, and then test your steam function on your ironing board cover or spare fabric swatch before tacking your favorite blouse.

4:Turn off the steam function on your iron when ironing at lower temperatures. Since your iron's steam function is designed to convert the water in your iron to steam at the right temperature, lower iron temperatures can cause water to leak if your steam setting is still activated. For ironing more delicate fabrics, turn off the steam to avoid water leaks.

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...
