SOURCE: I was getting ready to iron a pair of pants that

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.

If you can't find it ever, you can use bottled drinking water. Don't use purified water it is so pure that it can be a little aggressive on some metals. Just use RO or drinking water from your local store.

SOURCE: shark iron; when you turn

Hi Sicnoramoore,

If your having problem with your shark iron and it leaks drops of water while ironing, it might be the water holding tank has a crack. Here are some steps that you may apply to check what's causing the leak issue.

1. Check the water. If you put wrong water it will cause the iron to spit the water out. So try to use good spring water or bottled water. Also make sure that the iron is empty before storage.

2. Check the two front screws ( they are hidden ). The two screws are holding the tank to the base. Sometimes iron developed a crack caused by tightening the screws.

--> if the unit has crack, I will recommend to call the manufacturer if warranty is up to have it be repaired for free.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a GENER8 steam mop i can not get it to steam it get hot but no steam, i have cleaned out the bottom foot but nothing can you help


There is probably a blockage preventing water from entering the steam generator.

Mostly with domestic steam equipment the water gravity feeds and it doesn't need much to stop the flow - often just a collapsed tube or a wayward blob of sealer.

Unfortunately to find the culprit the appliance will probably need partially dismantling.

I need operating manual for vapor white wing steamer


This is from an Amazon review. I have misplaced my manual and was searching for a pdf file without any luck. I think I have it under control if I only knew where to put my distilled water.Basic operation of the WhiteWing is:

1. Fill the tank with distilled water
2. Attach the hose to the steamer.
3. Attach the extension handles and attachment you want.(Be sure to watch the video and read the instruction booklet. Some of the attachments have specific uses and setup instructions)
4. Lock the finger trigger.
5. Plug it in.
6. Turn it on.
7. Wait 20 min. or until the pressure gauge reads between 3.5-4.5.
8. Get ready to rock - press the steam release button, unlock the finger trigger and start steaming.

For many jobs such as countertops, shower stalls, stovetops, you will need to follow behind the steam, wiping with a cloth to remove the released dirt from the surface. Some jobs may require you to start with a non-toxic cleaner or grease remover such as Orange Clean or Method brand cleaners. Remember, you'll be breathing in vaporized cleaner. So be sure it's something non-toxic and non-irritating. I prefer the Method brand cleaners.

Theres water pouring out of my t fal iron's little holes when I begin to iron my shirt...why!


The iron needs to be cleaned as I have just discovered myself. I have a hinari and the instructions are as follows. Fill the water tank and turn the iron on to medium. When heated press the steam button and hold it over the sink or a container so that the water can run out of it. It will take sediments with it. The cleaning of the iron should be carried out once a month.

I experienced the same trouble and carried out the instructions and all is well again.

Does not give steam.


Actually there was no category for clothes steamer, and before entering information I was prompted to pick a category so I chose vacuums hoping that when my problem was diagnosed it would be understood that the problem is a clothes steamer that has stopped giving off steam. Please help if you can. I appreciated your time.

Prolectrix 3 tier steam


Is the unit spraying ok? If not then the heater may be plugged. Other than that, you should fill the tank with hot tap water, the the heater will only heat it alittle more, you won't really see steam.
