"Standby" on Digital Screen

Apparently, I accidently overfilled my Iron with water.  Now, I have this "Standby" on my digital screen, and the Iron will not heat.  But, everything else appears to be fine.  How do I resolve this problem and get the heating element to cut on again?

You should be able to dump the water back out of the hole where it gets filled. After that, I would leave it unplugged for a minute to reset itself. Also try setting the controls to "off" or the lowest temp possible, before plugging it back in.

Pour all the water out of the iron, and fill it with white vinegar. Heat it and let it spit vinegar for a while.

Chances are there is simply a bunch of crud in the iron from the water, most likely calcium carbonate. The vinegar is the cheap and easy fix, but if that does not do it you;ll have to bring out the "Big Gun" and use some "CLR" cleaner, available at most grocery or hardware stores.

"CLR" stands for "Calcium, Lime and Rust", and a small jug of it is about $6 USD, It will clean the crud out for sure.

Ironing seems to be a "lost art". Congratulations on being a smart desser!

My ultra T-fal iron is leaking right out of the iron, before I turn it on. Should I get a new iron, or can this be fixed?


I believe there`s faulty construction'and the cost to repair is about as costly as a new purchase.The valve that inhibits the water flow apparently is remaining open.

Water leaking out of iron no steam I have a Hamilton Beach Steam Storm Model 14560 Lost manuel


The Use and Care Guide for the Hamilton Beach Iron can be downloaded here:

If water is leaking out of the iron:

• Do not overfill the water tank.

• If steam ironing, is Adjustable Steam Knob in a steam position that matches Temperature Control Dial steam range? Did the iron have enough time to preheat?
• If dry ironing, make sure the Adjustable Steam Knob is in the DRY IRON position.

Water keeps coming out after pressing steam button


hi i have just looked this information up and apparently that using 100% distilled water can cause your iron to spit and leak, to solve this problem you should press the steam button and keep pressing it until there is no water left in the iron, then try it again, if it still does this, repeat a few times and then the iron should be fine
hope this helps

My iron is spitting water when i put steam on???


It is overfilled with water. There's right measure for
your iron. It is specified in your manual. If no manual,
just fill it halfway and set your thermoswitch at a little
over half also.

I have a Digital Advantage iron, the cleaning prompt comes on and I don't know what to do, thank you


I think you need to fill the water chamber almost to full, plug the iron in and rotate the steam dial all the way to the left. There is a "clean" setting. The iron will splutter and drip water and produce steam. This is the cleaning process. You can probably have the iron on any settinng. I hope this helps.

Water drips out of steam holes


I suspect that by placing it on its heel rest the water from the tank is not allowed to enter into the steam chamber and when you go into ironing mode there is a rush of water that is cooling down the sole plate to below steaming temperature. Try keeping it in the horizontal position on a heat proof pad and press the steam button just before going into ironing mode.
