    same problem, was the solenoid valve at the tank. It was stuck closed remove it and take it apart and clean the piston, or get a new one, you should here it click when iron is on and you depress the button on the iron.

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

Hi,
You have to check solenoid steam valve which is fitted on the steam tank output pipe.

Hi Lori, 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. I had the same problem and hey it worked. Good Luck Babs.

I have a EURO-PRO X Model EP965 Steam Generator seems to working but steam is not coming our, neither for the iron nor for the brush.

I think you have a tank that is calcified and is not getting enough heat to the water assuming there is enough water in it. If it was blocked it would either cause the relief valve to vent or explode.

I would start by cleaning it, my best guess would be to run a few cycles with vinegar in it. This is a mild acid that will dissolve the calcium deposits. Try maybe a 50%-50% with vinegar and water.

Be sure the vinegar will not damage the unit, I do not know.

Hope these links help.

No steam coming throwc

Normally when water is put inside steam irons, it get stored in tank then if thermostat knob is set for steam then water moves to bottom heated portion of iron. Water converts to steam as base plate is hot, heated steam comes out through perforated holes. If holes are blocked due to scale formation steam flow is blocked. The descaling has to be done as per instructions given on descaling wax manufacturer. sometimes if water does not enter through a rubber washer that is water tank to heated bottom portion then also steam will not get generated hence no steam. Please check above points and identify the problem.

My iron is getting hot but giving no steam can anyone advise

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below).
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle (see below).
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

Tefal protect concept steam button not working

hi! Long time listner, first time caller.

Iron not steaming AT ALL.

I have a tefal gv 7096

It turned on, all lights working and i can hear it heating up and when opening the calcium deposit i can see steam.

When i pressed the button - nothing. The iron it's self is hot (the plate) the lights on and but no steam.

The cord connecting the iron to the steam was also cold, so i could tell no steam was getting to the iron at all.

I wasn't sure if it was the button not working or something clogging the cord to the iron.

I did the vinegar thing. Let it sit for sometime (40 mins) and still nothing.
I did a weird thing of very carefully putting water on the plate while hot and it created steam from the plate. i think some backflowed and it started steaming, within seconds. might have happened with a bit more time anyway, but it def helped. All wokring fine now :)

Brown water and seems like sand or fine grit comes from iron ,when first put on with the steam

sounds like it is time to de-scale the iron to loosen all the deposits inside the unit.
add some white viegar to the water ( which should be distilled water ) and heat up and let the iron steam out the solution. now add just water to the unit shake it and rinse out with water and drain. now do one more vinegar / water de-scaling and rinse out again. now fill with just distilled water and let it steam out and now your iron should be clean as new.

The iron seems like it is on but no steams come out I will mess with the wire and then too much steams comes out and I have water stains

Power Cord is bad and power cuts on and off not allowing the proper heat. When power cuts off you lose heat and the iron fills up with water and not steam then when power returns you have to much steam.

Conair steam cleaner sc20 - plugged in, pushed button, no steam

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
