SOURCE: Brown spots coming from steam iron

you can mix 50% water with 50% vinager let it set in the iron overnight then turn it on and let the steam run out.What happens is the inside of the iron where the water is had corroded or rusted or has lime deposits.the vinager will break this loose overnight.also after you let the iron steam out all the mixture,flush the iron 4 to 5 times and start using fresh water from a store bought gallon.your tap water is probably full of iron.

SOURCE: My iron doesn't steam up anymore

Time for a new iron. I last one went to the iron graveyard and I then spent $150.00 on the top of the range Phillips with the gold plate. Has cut my ironing down to a 1/4 of the time. Well worth it

Fill with 50/50 water vinegar solution. Get it good and hot and let it sit for two hours. Rinse and repeat if necessary. Buy a gallon of water from the market and use that from now on. This will fix your problem. The Iron is concentrating the iron in you water and this is what is causing the brown spots. Hope you find this helpful. If you do please take the time to rate it fixya and maybe I will keep helping people for free.

SOURCE: What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron?

The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

If you need parts, here is the Rowenta repair facility....

Tip & How-To about Irons
Cleaning a Laundry Iron Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

Tefal express


The rumbling noise is the steam generator working - make sure the water reservoir is full and press the on button. Inside the machine will be doing its stuff and generating steam - this is the noise that you are hearing and when you press the release switch (normally under the handle of the iron) then the steam will be expelled. The noiose comes on and off as it is making more steam - this is normal. I use ordinary tap water but don't have hard water so have no problems - also make sure you empty out the base occassionally - should be a large pressure screw behind the cable holder - make sure iron is off and cold before doing this and then shake it out and residue bits will come out - then flush out with water. These are brilliant to use and you will wonder how you managed before having this - Happy ironing.

Instructions for use DiLonghi StiroMeglio compact iron (steam boiler Iron)


Is a long story but i make short.Don`t be afraid to leave your iron on.Is common to water tank iron to get working in more then 5-10 minutes.That machine are really safe since they do have more then 1 thermostat to control the water pressure.
How they work is pretty easy.The boil the water to a certan temperature and you know after certan F. the water become steam generatin pressure and steam.The thermostat control the heater and the electroswitch release the steam

If your in not making any steam after 5-10 minutes make sure you hear the electroswitch working.Sometimes they get cloght and even if the boil is under the pressure you can not get any steam at all
Good Luck
