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...

I plugged my max 110 V Oliso iron into our house's only 220 V outlet. Smoke is being emitted and it is unusable (The iron, not iron). Can someone please tell me how to fix it?


are you saying that the iron works with 110 volts and you plugged it in a 220 volts outlet??? if so then the voltage is to high for the iron (luckily it didn't get burnt) but all you need to do is plug it into a 110 volt outlet

How do i increase the iron heating temperature (thermostat) in Panasonic Electric Iron NI-22AWJ


Check the voltage at your power point, irons draw a lot of power. most irons have a temp setting switch cool med hot . If this a new iron return for service.

My Rowenta DG8030 steam iron leaks and sputters all over the clothes. How do I clean it. I can't find the manual...


treat it like a coffee maker mix some white vinegar and water then run that solution through the tank. hold it over a sink of course then rinse out with clean tap water. In the future use distilled water and you wont have that problem again for quite some time.

Shark iron-61468-10 steam button stuck on dowm position.thf cap on the water well not ckose.brought iron on 5-10-09 at walmart.how do I get it fixed?


Pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; I pried it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only). Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently full it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is plastic). Replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir. You should be back in the ironing business now! :) It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused for a period of time; as if the valve sticks when dry. I'm going to leave water in it this time, although the instruction manual says not to.

My steam iron will not steam. How do I clean it?


Mix (1 to 5 parts) white vinegar in distilled water and pour into the reservoir. Let sit for an hour or so, then pour out through a coffee filter into a container, then pour back into the iron for another hour. At this point, heat the iron and try the steamer function. The vinegar solution will clean deposits from the steam jets, so don't try to iron anything yet. Keep running solution through until sputtering stops. Wash out the reservoir with distilled water, then refill and steam wash the ports several times to remove the vinegar. If you can get it clean, continue to use only distilled water in the iron.

Iron not staying on


This is a problem with a lot of Rowenta irons. It is the auto shut off that is not working properly and the only way to fix it is to have it disassembled and the switch hardwired to be on whenever the iron it plugged in. It is a thermal metal switch and it just stops working and then the iron will not turn on and the yellow light blinks.
