    I also have the steam generator model EP8001 with the same problem as posted in January. The steam nor light works, but the iron does heat.

    after pluging into outlet no light appears until 5 minutes later. still no heat.

    Once after pluging and unpluging the greea light appeared and it began to heat.

    added water to no avail. Just the apearance of the RED LIGHT and no heat.

    Even after jiggling the plug.

    checked for break in cord but cord was okay.

    the model isan B&D Steam advantage AS185 type 1 8j06 flat iron

    Yes, my unit is about 5 yrs. old, the iron is becoming detatched from the handle portion, it heats up quite a bit & today I've decided that I'm stopping using it.

    my iron is doing the same thing - I've had it since 2001. I think it is the switch that's bad - can't find anyplace that will repair it. \

    i have the same problem but with a different model.. the EP8005 i have not been successful in finding anyone who has parts, but i did locate the problem for our unit. the ceramic thermostat was corroded and a wire broken off.

    I also own the same unit with the identical problem relating to the steam switch and no steam; is there an inexpensive solution or is replacement of the unit my only relief?

At a repair center they quoted me $55 for the repair, while I bought a new switch (not identical like the original) for $1.50 and a friend repaired it for free.

It appears that your rocker switch is broken, I am attempting to find a source for the switch and the screw driver that removes the screws holding the unit together

The iron has been all descaled, however we cannot get any steam when pressing the button. It is a Tefal express generator model 3 years old.

Once you have descaled the boiler and refilled your frontpiece of the iron itself (hopefully with distilled water - any supermarket) you press the "reset"/ "restart" button on the back end of the steam generating unit. When the water is hot enough press steam button & turbo button a few times - WARNING: make sure iron is facing downwards and cover ironing board with old rag because initially brown steam splatter will come out on first few steam releases.
