Depends on cost of new engine, generator, and engine repairs. Personally, I would look at as well as to find a replacement. Both have retail locations, might be one nearby and you can save the shipping charge.

Teresa you lost the guide?! You cannot afford to buy a new one at $22-29 dollars! They are OLD?! Guess what? You just answered your own question. Go to WalMart, Break down and buy new ones. Don't take them apart unless your seated and have a magnet near you! By the way a New Guide will cost you $12 dollars with a blade. They come in sets only. So $12 old one $22 new one? Duh I wonder what I will do?

OVerheats - no control-thermostat? Can this be replaced?

Yes but it is probably cheaper to buy a new iron

The days of repairing small appliances went out of the door some 15 years ago.

Minimum 1 hour labour charge plus the parts cost at whatever Westinghouse want to charge will be circa $40

You then have an iron with and old tank , and old element etc etc waiting to go wrong to cost you another fee

Heat goes off and on even after unplugging and plugging back in.

Sounds like the thermostat in it is faulty. If its under guarentee, then take it back to where you bought it, if not it will be cheeper to buy a new one. Wallmart, Comet etc. In the UK Argos do one for £7.00

Morphy richards steam generator model 42271

is there a noise when u press the trigger? if not there is sometimes a reset button on the front of the base. failing that the problem may well be the solenoid which opens to let the water into the steaming tank which is repairable but can be awkward.

Cant get anti calc cartridges for my steam generator

I had to order mine direct from Breville. If you go to their website and contact them with the model of the iron then they will give you details of price and postage.

No steam coming out and water tank not pumping water into generator to make steam

The Rowenta DG-980 Iron/Steam Generator works great from our experience (it is a consumer grade unit with commercial grade technology) and over 90% of the user reviews I have seen are happy with it, unfortunately it is a discontinued model & the newer replacement is not as good. Service seems to be rather thin, as is the case with most corporate entities; I was on the phone for 30 minutes before I was able to locate service center in Concord, CA (I am in SoCal), and is the only one in the state that does repairs on them, and I am going to check them out...stay tuned.
