Black and decker all temp steam iron stopped working while ironing and now it won't turn on.


please see the cause and fix it:
a) tank or ports clogged. Dissasembly and inspect replace tank and seal if badly clogged. Emptying iron after each use allow heats to evaporate remaining water and helps prevent clooging. Inspect valve and linkage: clean or replace as necessary
GOD BLESS YOU

STEAM ONLY COMING OUT OF TOP HOLES SWAN S15040


The iron is probably clogged up from mineral deposits in the water. Fill the iron with a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar. Heat the iron and let it set for awhile. Then steam the solution through the iron. Repeat the process if this does not work. If the Vinegar and water does not work, then try a product such as Lime Away or CLR to remove the deposits. After the iron is cleaned out, try using distilled bottled water in the iron, to reduce the mineral build up.
Hope this helps you!

I have a Black and Decker First Impressions (about 2 yrs old). When on steam it always spits out large puddles of water on the clothes as I'm ironing. It seems to come from the top or bottom part of the...


It's a possibility that you iron steam making elements are caked with lime and possibly the steam holes as well.

Purchase some "Lime Away" and dilute it 50/50 and pour it into your steam iron (drain all the old water out first and leave the iron unpluged) let sit for an hour or so and drain out, fill it again with clear water shake and drain out do this a couple of time then turn on the steam and see if it works properly, use the first time on an old towel to be sure all the chemical has been rinced out. Good Luck.

Iron Cleaning


If steam iron clogs from minerals in water, follow use-guide directions for cleaning, or use a commercial iron cleaner. A fine needle in the nozzle hole may open it again. Sometimes "steaming" will remove lint clogging the iron; fill with at least 1/4 cup water, set it to "steam", and hold in the air or set flat on wire rack over heat and moisture resistant surface like counter protective mat. Let steam until empty. Using only distilled water in steam irons helps avoid mineral buildup. Or if you have burned stains or darkness on the bottom you can Heat equal parts of vinegar and salt in small pan rub solution on cooled iron surface to remove dark or burned stains
