Chemicals and minerals in the water have probably clogged the vents. Empty the water. Pour 1/2 cup WHITE vinegar into the reservoir. Turn on your iron and let it heat. Then press the steam generator button several times until the vinegar is gone. Unplug the iron. As it is cooling, take acotton swab and gently wipe the surface of the vents. You can probe GENTLY with the swab, but don't push it into the vent or the cotton head may get stuck. As you're pressing the steam button, keep the iron in the ironing position, not standing. If the vinegar just will not come out of the vents, use a wooden toothpick to loosen the build up. This always works well for me and I hope it does for you. If so, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!
don't spend your money on a calc cartrage it will not get it out of standby. the controll unit carnt tell if it needs replaceing! if the standby light is flashing it means it carnt heat the steam tank. if the iron is not heating as well it is a buggerd control pcb! if you live near Newcastle I could fix it for 20 pounds [email protected]
This has worked for my SX8040D, but may not be a permanent solution. Fill the reservoir with clean tapwater - not demineralised or softened and not bottled water. Turn on iron and wait 20 minutes. Then try.
If you need instructions go to www.HandBookLive.com. There are videos for GS4 and GS10 under Appliances category. It says that steam is produced in about 5-6 minutes after you turn power on. Also there is a low water indicator light on GS10 that kills power to teh unit if the water level is low. Maybe that's the problem... Not sure if sc20 is similar
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
