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.

The magnetron has a 100% duty cycle on full power and reduces to 20% on low power. That means that it produces full power for 20 seconds and no power for 80 seconds on low power during the cook cycle.

are talking the blade inside the canister if so it unscrews from the clear handle and view area. otherwise if you mean the chuck below when the canister is lifted off that is held on by a fastener right in the middle dead center

If that's what it says in the manual, that's as far as you'll get.

The internal fuse has probably blown or the wire is damaged in the machine. Preferrably don't try to repair it if you don't know a lot about electronics. The chance of shocking yourself is too high if you are not a qualified electrician.
I am sorry, but throw it away. The safety risk is too high to try to repair a device of this price.

Hi Regina, the first thing you should do is check to make sure the water supply is turned on. Sometimes it will get shut off by mistake when someone is trying to do something else. The next problem would be the fill valve that allows water into the machine,that could be no good. Also check that the machine has power going to it, some newer installations are wired to a plug in cord like other appliances. There may be an outlet behind the machines controlled by a wall switch. Those are the most common reasons for a no water situation. Hope that helps.
