    Screen says clean on every setting. Lever goes to clean and sends out a lot of steam, but the note to clean does not go away. What do I do?

    The cleaning option came on, and I can't find the manual. Tried turning the steam knob to "CLEAN", but nothing happened. Also, it is now leaking water and spotting the fabric. This iron is almost new.

Fill the Iron with water but keep the water level below the max line. Plug in the iron and set the temp to 6 and stand iron on it's heel and allow to heat for 3 mins. Now unplug the iron and take it to a sink move and Hold the variable steam dial in the CLEAN position. There may be some hissing and spitting while cleaning so be careful. Continue to hold the dial in the clean position until all the water has emptied. If necessary rock side to side and back to front to get all the water out.When finished release the steam dial plug in the iron and heat for about 2 mins to dry out the remaining water and unplug.

Breville VIN 214 iron leaking - can anyone help please

Service the steam and spray mechanism:

  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
  4. God bless you

Black decker D000C type 1

if it don't get warm , the thermostate is not working, or the internal resistance, is open. in either cases, you can check with a multimeter , but if you ask me, it's time to get anotheer one.
