I cannot get my GCSBDS212 steam iron to make steam.


Have a look at the steam holes in the bottom, they should be nice an clean with no blockage. If they are blocked up you will need to remove the calcium buildup inside the iron. Get some LimeAway at HDepot, pour it into the water reservoir, let sit overnight. Next day turn the iron on and try steaming on some old papers covered with an old rag or towel, once it starts working steam for a few minutes, then unplug, drain it, put in clean distilled water and flush it out until the steam comes out clear. Use distilled water not tap water, it has much less mineral content and will be less likely to plug it up. Most pharmacies and Walmart sell distilled water. ! gallon about $1.25.

No steam coming throwc


Normally when water is put inside steam irons, it get stored in tank then if thermostat knob is set for steam then water moves to bottom heated portion of iron. Water converts to steam as base plate is hot, heated steam comes out through perforated holes. If holes are blocked due to scale formation steam flow is blocked. The descaling has to be done as per instructions given on descaling wax manufacturer. sometimes if water does not enter through a rubber washer that is water tank to heated bottom portion then also steam will not get generated hence no steam. Please check above points and identify the problem.

Buy a bottle of descaler and put it in the tank where you normally put the water. Put iron on hottest steam poison and run steam , topping up as required. Rinse thoroughly when finished and iron has cooled. Use distilled or demineralised water for steaming and the iron shouldn't require cleaning again.

Lost steam pressure


see this causes and fix it.God bless you

Inspect the steam vents from the outside, and use a pipe cleaner or other small utensil to remove any excess buildup that is blocking the vents. Be careful not to let the buildup fall down into the steam vents.

  • 3 Clean the steam iron's directional spray tip. Minerals and other debris can build up on the nozzle over time and will greatly hinder the use of your steam iron.
  • 4 Pour equal parts vinegar and water into the steam iron's water supply tank. Put the steam iron above an empty pot, and turn the iron on. Let it steam the solution until all the water/vinegar solution is gone

    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.

    No steam


    What you need to do is clean out the steam orifice. (The tiny hole the steam comes out) When water is turned to steam it leaves behind mineral deposits, (Iron, Calcium) Especially if you have "hard" water in your area. Here's what you do. Add some CLR, (Calcium,Lime Remover) to the water you put in the iron, let it sit a while, laying flat, then drain the water out. You want to get the nozzle, to, holding the iron upside down, try to immerse the steam nozzle for a couple of seconds in the CLR or drip some directly on it. You can buy this product in most stores. It works well and fast. Dip your showerhead in it too, you'll be suprised at how it improves water flow. It is safe as long as you follow the instructions.

    What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron? I have an expensive European style iron which is no longer producing steam. I have bought an iron descaler/cleaner and have repeated its use. I tried the...


    The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

    Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

    When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

    Iron puts out water which stains clothes. Steam is not dependable


    Replace your iron. You can try cleaning the old one with either white or the stronger pickling vinegar, but for all the trouble that will be it is easier to just replace your iron. If future use ONLY distilled water, bought at any supermarket or water store, in your new iron.

    How to put water in the Tefal pro 2500


    This type of iron is called a steam station iron.
    The box is the water tank and it is this that you need to fill with water. You should be able to find a small spout on the water tank in order to fill it. These irons produce a huge amount of steam and should make the ironing a breeze once you get used to it.
