Question about Panasonic NI-H10NS Iron
I followed the manufacturers instructions in filling the iron and letting it heat up and produce steam. The tank was not overfilled. The controls were set to high steam and heat setting 5. A shirt was being ironed and when the shirt was being readjusted on the ironing board, the iron was placed on its heel rest. When the iron was taken off the heel rest such that the sole plate was in a horizontal position (parallel to the ironing board surface), water droplets dripped excessively on the shirt, wetting it to the extent that the iron would not easily remove the area that was wetted. What am I doing wrong or is this common to this iron?
I suspect that by placing it on its heel rest the water from the tank is not allowed to enter into the steam chamber and when you go into ironing mode there is a rush of water that is cooling down the sole plate to below steaming temperature. Try keeping it in the horizontal position on a heat proof pad and press the steam button just before going into ironing mode.

Tips for a great answer:
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
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.
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.
