Question about Euro-Pro Steam Generator EP8001 Iron
The steam hose at the base of the iron is kincked and does nor allow frww flow of steam. I would like to open the iron and fix this by cutting off the damaged piece of hose. unfortunately the nuts/screws at the base of the iron are of a peculiar shape and I do not know what tool to use to open the plate. any advice?
I have recieved the Euro -Pro Steam Generator EP8001 as a gift but did not recieve the instruction manual where can I find a copy of the instuction Manual on line.
Thank you Sandra

Sears sells a screwdriver set (47486 is written on the handle) that has a lot of non-standard drivers. There is one on there that will fit the nuts on this unit.
Also, I used a rubber tube from an Auto parts store to replace the cracked hose. I figured the Automotive hosing was designed to withstand the heat of an engine. So, it should work on this iron.
Bring the cracked iron hose with you to the auto parts store.

Tips for a great answer:
ensure your iron steam button is not set into perminent steam function. leaving the iron with the point of the iron pointing upwards should reduce steam to the handle. also the iron may need to be descaled to ensure any steam switch funtion is not stuck in an on position.
