Pat, it probably has a calcium scale buildup from lack of use. Try filling the reservoir with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Water and let it set over night (at east 24 hours). Then turn the iron on to the steam setting and see what happens. If it doesn't produce steam, turn the iron OFF, let it cool and soak for an additional 8 hours. After that, turn it ON, set the steam setting and hopefully it will have unclogged. If hasn't after 32 hours, I don't think it will. Also, you can try cleaning the steam jets on the iron's surface, with a firm tooth brush and the vinegar/water solution.

Hope this helps. Please let me know.

My euro pro ironing solution model 1000 does not heat up or allow steam to be released. It does make steam. What could be wrong?


The steam passages may be clogged, especially if ordinary water containing minerals was used to fill it. The instructions for your Euro-Pro iron probably specify use of distilled water.

I have a Euro-pro iron with a separate tank for producing steam. When heated and in use it will "spit"unexpectedly which makes is rather useless for most projects. Why does it do this? What can I do?


try adding a calcium cleaner (like CLR) and letting the steam run all the way through without ironing and see if it cleans the steam lines and holes

Euro Pro 1005 ironing Cover and Part.


Hello, rslarve, Okay, here are a couple of links that should be helpful: Euro Pro Replacement Cover LC and Pad for EP1010 / 1005
This will link you directly to the purchase page for the ironing cover you want. Sorry, but after extensive searching, it's the only one I could find, so I suggest you get two while the getting is good! Customer Support for Sharkvac Products - sharkvac.com
This link will take you to a web page that will allow you to send the manufacturer an email explaining the part you need. Please, before you send the email, try your best to find your manual and see if there is a part number listed for the part you want. If not, and the old part is available (like—if you have a broken one), check it over thoroughly (perhaps using a small flashlight and magnifying glass to make sure you don't miss it) for any numbers that might be stamped, embossed, or etched into it. Even if they are not part numbers, they may help the manufacturer to locate the one you need. No matter what, send them as much information as you possibly can in order to help them be able to help you—the easier you make it on them, the more likely you are to get satisfactory results.  Finally, here is a toll-free number for the manufacturer's tech-support line: the same "homework" applies before you call it: 1-800-798-7398. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 6:00pm Eastern Standard Time.
I hope this helps! Ken

Euro-pro EP1005 iron--iron heats -blower works-but no steam


You may not need a new iron, my wife's iron is doing the same thing. take the top of the ironing board off (you will need a torx t-20 security bit driver), under the tank is a connection that may have rusted out re-connet it and turn the iron on. Once it heats up, check the tank for leaks. The tank may need to be replace as well or try a 5-minute epoxy type glue on the leaks once it has cooled. If the tank leaks you will get not get enlugh pressure building up to get the steam.

Handle on iron gets too hot to hold onto. Product is an Euro-Pro Ironing Solution. Ironing system includes the iron and ironing board together.


I purchased a silicone heat protector for a pot handle and sewed it together with dental floss around the iron handle
