Toastmaster Irons - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
The steam irons I have see have a separate button to allow water from the reservoir to enter the steam chamber. This button latches down for steam and you unlatch it for dry. Also, there is a temperature range on the temp dial for steam.
The reservoir must have water in it for the iron to make steam. If calcium from the water has built up on the reservoir valve, it may prevent the water from entering the steam chamber. Straight white vinegar instead of water may help.

Where do you put the
The water fills through the hole on the front of the unit! Use a measuring cup and pour it in the hole....it should have a clear guage on the handle to show the water level.

My toastmaster iron has a steam button and a spray
You can try to remove the spray nozzle if it unscrews and soak it in vinegar or CLR (Calcium,Lime,Rust available at stores) solution. Yes or use vinegar water mix 1/4 c vinegar 2 c water, or again there are products that are made for iron cleanout but vinegar is the least chemical based and cheaper. Fill the sprayer with the solution, and the steamer also. Operate the iron on the highest steam setting and iron on a folded towel to clean it out. You may have to scrape out the scale build up from the sprayer if it wont clear with the solution.

Just stopped heating
Unless you have a 5 or 6 hundred dollar iron, there is an excellent rule of thumb when an iron quits working. Buy a new one. These days, irons can be purchased cheaply enough that it is WELL worth the money. Not just for the convenience, but for the safety issues. This is an appliance that could burn your house down even if it's in PROPER working order. Hope this helps!!
