Question about Irons
Iron has suddenly stopped steaming, and I am having to spray everything wet before irong! This is a heavy duty iron and is driving me mad.
I had the same problem and the Philips hekp site was no use. I turned my iron off until it was completely cooled down then switched it back on again, with the steam number turned to 5 and the heat on max. as soon as the ready light went off, i put my iron in the horizontal position and shook it back and forth (quite vigorously) and it seemed to have dont the trick!

I had exactly the same thing and went through all the manual and did the incredibly obvious things that Philips point out but then I tried it without the top cover closed fully (the one you put the water in) so some air could get in. Now I have more steam than I know what to do with. Do not know if this will work for you but it is worth a try and it looks like the plastic cap seems to get a bit blocked / melted maybe with the heat ?????
