How do I clean my iron? It sometimes stains my clothes and drips water from the bottom. Please help. Thank you.

It needs cleaning and descaling. The staining is ferrous iron and minerals in the water and is the reason for cleaning. It is dripping because of limescale in the valve that cuts the steam. I wrote this Fixya Tip. It will fix both issues. https://www.fixya.com/support/r26134544-cleaning_laundry_iron ..

How to dismantle a russell hobbs steamglide iron

To disassemble the Russell Hobbs 15081 steam glide iron, you have to remove the two hidden screws on the handle. To locate the first screw remove the two adjacent blue buttons which are each held in with two hidden clips front and rear, so lever out with small screwdriver or similar. The second hidden screw is under the pivots of the water inlet lid.(I broke one of the plastic pivots but no big deal). Then using a thin blade, separate the top half of the handle from the bottom half of the handle. A bit of force is needed as there are more plastic clips. I started from the rear. Once the top half the handle is removed, other screws become visible, so teardown is not hard, just note which screws go where, as they are different lengths. My problem was that some of the screws/bolts were so corroded I needed to drill them out. The thermostat was also corroded, which probably explained why the thermal fuse had blown. The element was fine.

Tefal Steam Generator Power PCB CS-00097826. I would like to see the wiring diagram for the board.

Question edited for clarity, remove 'wont', (no such word - 'want'?), replace with 'would like'. A board schematic would only be available from Tefal _if_ they would release that information to you. Boards are available, or take to an electronics engineer and ask him to test the board components. If the capacitors have failed, it will be the switching relay on the board. https://www.google.com/search?q=Tefal+Steam+Generator+Power+PCB+CS-00097826+wiring There is no technical service manual for them. https://www.google.com/search?q=tefal+steam+generator+repair+manual ..

Conair steamer GS4 reconnecting wire on switch relay

Safety First: Before attempting any repairs, ensure the steamer is unplugged from the electrical outlet to prevent electric shock. Access the Switch Relay Area: Remove the water tank from the steamer. Open the casing or access panel where the switch relay is located. This may involve removing screws or clips. Inspect the Wires: Look for any loose or disconnected wires near the switch relay. If you find a wire that has come off, identify its original position. Reconnect the Wire: Strip a small portion of the wire insulation if needed. Reattach the wire to the appropriate terminal on the switch relay. Ensure it is securely fastened. Test the Steamer: Reassemble the casing or access panel. Plug in the steamer and turn it on. Check if the switch relay works properly. Secure the Casing: Once everything is in place, secure the casing back onto the steamer. Remember to exercise caution while handling electrical components. If you're unsure or uncomfortable with the repair, consider seeking professional assistance or contacting Conair's customer service for guidance.

My Laura star iron is continuously steaming and won't stop My Laura star iron is continuously steaming and won't stop

The steam valve may be partially blocked with scale so it doesn't close properly. You can try disconnecting the iron from the base unit and flushing it several times with the valve open and then closed. If it is possible to disassemble the valve, you can clean the contamination directly. You may also find that the seal or o-ring is worn out. My mother would use only distilled water in her iron, so she never had that problem. I see from the product manual* that yours is "designed for use with tap water" if the filter is used. There's probably a limit to how much lime in the water it will tolerate, but the manual says nothing about that. If the Laurastar Lift Xtra is less than a year old and you were diligent about replacing the filter when you got the replacement alert light, you may be able to get warranty service. *http://image.email.laurastar.com/lib/fe4715707564057e751572/m/3/75bb559a-f7e0-4d65-aa02-6d2bf912641f.pdf

My D2030 iron does not heat up the power light and the screen light come on but does not heat up

1...You need to check the iron settings as they have an adjustable knob that controls temperature as well as governs which kind of materials you want to iron. Different clothing materials need different temperature and other settings. Make sure you set the knob carefully. If you are unable to set the knob properly, you can check the user manual and make sure the temperature or heat amount is set at the right point.

2...Another thing that you need to check in order to inspect why the iron press is not heating up is the water reservoir. In some cases, if the water reservoir is empty then the iron press may not be heating up as much as it should.

For this, switch the iron off and make sure it is cool. Switch it on again and top up the water in the reservoir. Now try ironing again to see whether the heat is proper or not.

My wifes Hamilton Beach Iron

If this question had come through yesterday I would have said it was an April fools joke. Somehow pressure is leaking back into the iron body and the only outlet it can find is some poorly made electrical lead. For starters I suggest that you replace the cord and plug. Perhaps a better quality cord will not do that. For extra security, seal the ends of the wires with silicone sealant. If I had grand kids, this would be a story to tell them, like you say, it is hard to believe but good luck.

I just told my wife the story and she asked if the water was not coming from the wall socket from a leak somewhere else in the house?

Elna Press 2000 Ironing Press. Why won't my press close?

Question edited for clarity. Question moved from Elna Sewing Machines No one has reported this issues, so there are no known fixes. The system is simple, just a hinge with a spring to counterbalance some of the weight. Look for something out of place or binding at the hinge area, perhaps the pivot pin is dislodged. https://www.google.com/search?q=elnapress+iron+won%27t+close+properly ..

I have the same question. The Singer ESP 2 machine keeps beeping even when the machine is open and the temperature switch then does not operate.

The problem is caused by a level sensor/mercury switch on the PCB under the top cover. Mine did the same. Changed it with a similar part and still going 12 years later. Sorry for such a late reply.

Tobi Platinum Model EC1710 Garment Steamer. It does not make steam, It is on but doesn't make steam. Poured vinegar in the water tank.

Question edited for clarity and all the typos / spelling errors. Descale it again, but use CLR Descaler which is made for the job. I presume you can feel heat? When using the descaler shake the unit every 5 minutes because the steam valve outlet will be at the top. of the heater chamber. https://www.google.com/search?q=Tobi+Platinum+Model+EC1710+descale Use the mix details for Irons and coffee machines
