Shops that sell cheap Chinese imports often have sets of screw drivers with bits that fit those "tamper proof" screws. You may find them at larger hardware stores, but I think it unlikely.

Blown fuse

If the fuse you are blowing is in your fuse box in house then your steamer is using more power than the fuse can carry. Move to an outlet powered by a larger fuse. Do not recommend changing fuse to a larger amp fuse because this could cause a fire hazard.

Water distiller keeps shutting off

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical cord, and check the thermostat.and replace if necessary.
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle .
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.
Test the heating elements and power for blowing fuse.use the DVOM

My shark pro iron shut off while i was ironing in never came back on.

Iron's have a thing called a "Thermal Fuse" these go "Faulty" or "Blow" very frequently, it is relatively simple to check and replace. Find the fuse, a small metal cylindrical thing, with a lead at each end. Use a meter set to OHMS and measure it, it should be a "Short Circuit" IE: 0 Ohms. If not it is faulty. But if it is IE: Open Circuit, NO reading, it should be replaced. It will have markings on it to denote it's type, get one the same, and replace it.

Light comes on but iron won't get hot?

The heating element of your iron is either busted or
disconnected. If the heating element is busted, just
replace it. If it is just disconnected, you can easily
reconnect it using a screw driver. So, you can go ahead
and open the iron using your screw driver. Keep us posted by sending your e-mail and vote for this solution.

Iron shut off; will not go back on

There is a thermal fuse in the iron which blows when overheated. This fuse has to be replaced.

You can probably find one on-line at -- match the temperature rating of the old fuse. It'll have to be crimped in -- if you solder it, the heat will blow it.

Russell Hobbs Steam Glide 2200 won't produce steam.

I had a problem and tracked it down to the pump. If you take the iron apart, the pump sits towards the front of the iron and has 3 tubes connected to it. Remove the srew-down bracket and free the pump from the plastic clasps on the base. Disconnect tubes and wires (remembering where they go.

Remove the circular securing spring from the front of the pump and drop the metal barrel from the housing. Unscrew the rear plastic assembly and set aside. there is a joint inside where the plastic assembly was - this is has an o-ring and is simply a pull-apart. It deos not need screwing. Pull the metal barrel apart, taking care to note the sequence for reassembly. Inside the barel is a larger rubber washer. Pull on the metal tube that goes through the centre of the washer using a pair of pliers - it will come free.

You will then see the problem - the spring inside the metal barrel will have broken. Take care, because at the other end of the spring is a small plastic washer that must be retained. Find a pen that has a short spring inside and use this as a replacement. If necessary, you can trim the spring to make it the right lenght. Ensure you have removed all broken pieces of spring, and reassemble. Try it out before finally attaching the pump inside the iron. It took me 2-3 attempts to get the spring tension right. If you can find a 'PENAC RB-085B BA1002' pen, the spring is perfect.

Once you have got it right, reassemble.

I have to replace the spring approx every 6 months as the replacement is obviously not meant for the job and wears or rusts or breaks. However, I am getting extended use from my otherwise broken iron.

Take care - things inside get HOT!!

Hope this helps.
