Question about Vacuums

My iron seams to have run out of steam - it is a 2800w and the steam is so slight. How could I get this iron "calc cleaned" as I think that may solve the problem

It sounds like the holes on the bottom are clogged up. Take a pin and make sure the holes are clear then run the iron on high to have the steam force the rust out.

To clean the reservoir of your iron, pour a solution that is one part vinegar to one part water in. Turn the iron on. Allow it to steam for about four minutes. Drain the iron for an hour, and be sure to repeat the process with clean water before you iron any clothing items.

I need instructions on how to clean Digital Advantage Iron. I have lost my manual.


any iron can be cleaned by running a little water and vinegar through it several times, it loosens the scale build up that gets in all irons over time, be sure and try to clean out the venting steam holes in the face of the iron, Once you do this, run clean clear water through it and you should be fine, if possible, always use bottled water (purified) water in irons

I have burned my nylon trousers with the iron, its left a terrible black burn fabric mark on my iron, how can i clean the iron?


Get some XXXX steel wool. That's the finest grade. Rub from TIP TO HEEL until the junk is off. DON'T rub sideways, the iron will snag when you use it. After you clean the soleplate, wipe it well and run a steam cycle to remove the dust from the ports.

How do i clean my iron so brown dirt won't come out of it when i iron


Hi,


Brown water and white scale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...

If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...

For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,

and then use the bottled water instead...

How to clean sunbeam ultra 60 platinum iron. Can't find instruction booklet!!!!!


Do you mean the Sunbeam Ultura 60 Platinum iron? Wipe the exterior of the iron with a damp soft cloth and then dry the iron. To clean the steam valve, turn the Steam/Dry dial to Clean so that the tip pops up. Gently scrub the tip of the valve with a steel wool pad moistened with warm water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Replace the valve and turn clockwise to lock into place (reset the dial to Dry when storing the iron). Clean the steam holes of any build up, use a cotton wool tip moistened with methylated spirits. The teflon plate should be cleaned with the damp soft cloth, just like the rest of the exterior of the iron. If you have ironed a polyester that melted onto the iron, then iron a damp cotton cloth when the iron is hot.

The manual for several Ultura irons, including the 60, is available here: http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Browse/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=1485 . The link for the manual is in the center of the page above the Image Gallery.

I hope this helps.

Anti-calc valve wings (grip) located at #3 of the 1-15 labeled description diagram that is part of the instruction manual. The wings are on either side of the dry/steam control #4. Lift up on the wings (grips) and the dry/steam control will accompany it. The anti-calc valve is under this control. It's easy once you realize where the silly thing is actually located.

Run white vinegar through the iron over the sink with iron on high & steam button pressed down. This should dissolve any minerals that build up in it. Then run water through it over the sink to rinse the vinegar out.

First, UNPLUG THE IRON. DO THIS PART COLD. Clean the soleplate with scotch brite and WD-40. Next, you will have to remove the WD-40 residue from the soleplate with something like windex. Make sure you get around the steam holes.
Next-Plug it in and fill it with 50-50 mix of water and white vinegar. Set it for steam and let it run through. Refill it with plain water and steam it out again, until there is NO VINEGAR SMELL. This will clean the deposits out of the tank and steam vents.
