Try cleaning the steam nozzle and steam chamber.---- Your steam iron is probably clogged with mineral deposits from your water. To remedy this common problem, pour equal amounts white vinegar and water into the iron's chamber. Turn to the steam setting, put the iron in the upright position and leave it on for five minutes. After unplugging the iron and allowing it to cool, empty the water. The mineral deposits will come out, too.--- There is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged...fill reservoir with vinegar and water (50/50) and allow to soak 24 hrs, then reheat then shake vigorously to drain then rinse then retry. Also check solenoid steam valve which is fitted on the steam tank output pipe.There's a little valve on the water tank on the inner side where it connects to the base, push this in a couple of times it may be stuck.------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Generally bad connection... most likely the power cord. Also could be a problem with the bad switch; you can go to smallappliance.com and buy a new switch and orther parts that you need.

Hope this helps.

The iron has been all descaled, however we cannot get any steam when pressing the button. It is a Tefal express generator model 3 years old.


Once you have descaled the boiler and refilled your frontpiece of the iron itself (hopefully with distilled water - any supermarket) you press the "reset"/ "restart" button on the back end of the steam generating unit. When the water is hot enough press steam button & turbo button a few times - WARNING: make sure iron is facing downwards and cover ironing board with old rag because initially brown steam splatter will come out on first few steam releases.

How do i descale a team international steam pro 2600w iron


Buy a bottle of descaler and put it in the tank where you normally put the water. Put iron on hottest steam poison and run steam , topping up as required. Rinse thoroughly when finished and iron has cooled. Use distilled or demineralised water for steaming and the iron shouldn't require cleaning again.

The tank in my rowenta iron is producing steam but the iron is not producing steam


Yes the iron needs to be cleaned. They do have a descaler to clean. the Steam valve with a electronic switch is broken, that is what opens and lets the steam out of the iron when you press the button.
Google Rowenta repair Centers.

I have a Swan S15040 steam generator iron, the stand by light is permanently flashing, no matter what temperature setting i put the iron on. No steam is generated. I have tried holding the steam button...


I had same issue , now , once you turn the unit on , you should see displayed 3 steam jets and the flashing standby , turn the dial on the iron to max ,press the steam button on the machine to max steam , leave for a minute or so , now press the steam button on the iron , does it make a noise ? if it does , slightly raise the whole front end of the unit ( easier if you have the iron on the worktop and not on the unit !) for a minute then try and press the steam button on the iron again . I think there is a bit of an issue about the conection between the water tank and the filter . This solved my issues and i do hope it will help you .

Need manual for swan steam generater iron model s15040


you have probably solved this by now but
I just got the same model new
switch on instructions as follows
press and HOLD the POWER button for 3 seconds to switch the unit on
once temperature has been reached, press and HOLD the steam button on top of the iron for up to 20 seconds
this will prime the steam pump and only has to be done once for each ironing session
the pump noise will stop once it has been primed with water
hope this helps if still needed
if you need the user guide, let me know, I'll scan it for you
