Question about Reliable i30/120V Professional Steam Iron Head Only, Aluminum Soleplate, 32 Steam Chambers, 7 Foot Cord, Hose for i500, i700 Boilers ITALY
Thisiron is part of the I300 boiler and steam system. All of the components in the boiler portion have been replaced and it cycles on and off as designed. However, I am getting very wet steam out of the iron. I've tried the troubleshooting steps in the manual multiple times but still very wet steam. I note that there is a "thermostat 271 w/ manual reset" in the parts list for the iron but have been unable to find this reset button. If it is tripped I would assume the iron heating element will not heat and the steam is condensing to quickly in the iron and thus the wet steam.
You have to take part the iron by unscrewing the three bolts on the side handle with a small phillips driver. Then loose the allen screw on one side of the black thermostat wheel to unloosen it. Then take out the two bolt plastic protectors under the handle and unscrew the two allen bolts, carefully separate the top from the botton of the iron, carefully not to pry loose the cables from the top to the hot shoe.
On the back you will see a small white square box, that is the thermostat, which has a button on top, all you need to do is to push it in. This will make the iron heat up unless you have a thermostat failure (Black wheel with temperature indicators), which you will need to order the part and change it.
