Customer Questions
My iron doesn't produce any steam.

Answer 1: The steam control may have been set to the no steam position. Set the steam control to a steam position.

Answer 2: There is no water in the tank and/or the settings are not set correctly.


Step 1: Ensure there is water in the tank.

Step 2: Set to the appropriate steam and temperature setting - When steam ironing, you must set the steam control to steam and the temperature control to a temperature equal to or higher than the steam symbol on the dial.

The mains power switches off when I switch my iron on or when the iron is in use. Can the appliance cause a power failure?

Step 1: Check that the connection to the plug is secure and not loose and also check how many appliances are using the same output. Failure could be caused by over current in your mains.

Step 2: Check the iron's power cord for visible signs of damage (e.g. kinks, flaring of the braiding). Remove the rest of the appliances and switch it on again.

Step 3: if the mains power goes off again, contact the Russell Hobbs Customer Service Department on 0345 658 9700.

The steam boost function or vertical steam boost function on my iron doesn't work.

Answer 1: The (vertical) steam boost function has been used too often within a very short period.

Put the iron in a horizontal position and wait for a while before using the (vertical) steam boost function again.

Answer 2: The iron is not hot enough. Set the temperature dial to a temperature suitable for steam ironing.

The Spray function or Spray button on my iron isn't working (properly).

Make sure there is enough water in the tank and check that the spray button is able to spring back on its own after pressing.

If the spray nozzle hole is blocked, you can clean it carefully with a sharp needle or pin.

The indicator light isn't working (properly).

Make sure the iron is plugged into a working mains power and set the temperature dial to a desired position.

It is normal for the orange pilot light to turn on and off during ironing. It comes on as the iron is heating up, and goes off when it is hot enough.

Smoke comes out of the appliance.

Some parts of the appliance have been slightly greased and as a result, the appliance may produce some smoke when it is switched on for the first time.

Also, if there is remaining water in the soleplate from the last usage, the smoke observed may actually be water evaporating. However, these will stop after a short while.

The soleplate coating is scratched/worn away.

Your iron has multiple thin layers of coating and light scratches will not impede the performance of the iron. You can continue using the iron as per normal.

My iron leaves shiny patches on fabrics.

Fabrics can acquire shiny patches if they are ironed at too high temperatures. Try a lower temperature setting.

Also, to prevent shiny patches, you can put a cloth (e.g. a tea towel) between the iron and the fabric.

What type of water should I use?

Your appliance has been designed to be used with tap water.

Water drips from the holes of the soleplate during ironing. What should I do?

There may be several reasons for this:

Your iron produces a lot of steam. Steam could have condensed on the ironing board cover, making it wet and cause water marks on your garment when the iron is pressed on it.
Ironing aids or fragrance water could have been added to the water tank. This can cause problems with the steaming function, causing water to leak. Use only tap water or distilled water or a mixture of these two types of water.
Steam setting is being used at too low a temperature - The steam function should be switched to "no steam" when using the iron at lower temperatures or the water tank shoud be emptied.
Steam surge/shot/spray being used too rigorously - try using these facilities more slowly.

Water drops appear on the garment during ironing or drip on to the floor.

The water droplets may appear on the garments when you have steam ironed for a while. This happens because steam has condensed on the ironing board.

Dry the wet spots on the garment and the ironing board cover by passing the iron over them without pressing the steam button. If the underside of the ironing board is wet, wipe it dry.

Make sure you use a mesh-top ironing board with a thick felt material as this minimises steam condensation on the ironing board.

How can I prevent stains on the soleplate?

Ironing synthetics at high temperatures can cause staining when synthetic material is scorched.

Synthetics or synthetic-mixed fabrics can only be ironed at the lowest temperature setting.

Always set the temperature acording to the type of clothing being ironed. If unsure, always start with a lower temperature.

How do I remove the stains on the soleplate?

To remove a stain, wipe the soleplate with a moist cotton cloth without heating up the iron.

For stubborn stains, soak a cotton rag or pot towel in water & lemon juice, then heat up the iron to 'max' temperature and run the soleplate over the rag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value iron - does the job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wasn't overly impressed with the basic look of this iron but it proved itself well. Light and easy to handle, it's wide sole-plate glided easily over my laundry and - a definite plus point - no drips at all. I used it to iron a damask duvet cover (usually a pain to iron) and my jeans but it got out all the creases. A slightly longer cord and larger water pot (to fill the iron) would be useful. I'd recommend this for smaller quantities of ironing rather than large loads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kettle has a great design and easy to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ideal iron for speedy use,and very lightweight. Fill with water straight from the tap in soft water areas. The steam shot button gives you an extra shot of steam when you need it. Ideal for light fabrics right through to heavy denim fabrics. Continuous steam function means you don’t have to keep pressing a button to get the steam on your clothes. I expected clothes to be wet with continuous steam but NO it leaves them dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use Very smart and easy to use glides like it's on wheels only downside is that it's not easy to wrap the cord when storeing But that the only little fault I wish I had bought this iron years ago

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not hot enough Probably fine if want to always use steam but utterly rubbish if you don't, and I much prefer to dry iron as sometimes I iron wet clothes to speed up drying times in the winter. Didn't get hot enough by far, couldn't cope with anything other than thin dresses and because not hot, it didn't glide over the fabric either. Couldn't press t-shirts, jeans or tea towels so as far as I am concerned, it was not fit for purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and a reasonable price. Bought this as a replacement as an expensive one I bought went off. This is just as good as more expensive irons. Definitely recommend buying this iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best iron I have EVER had. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Tried this iron for over a week and I can honestly say I really like it. It's one of the best I have ever had. The cable, for once, is a reasonable length reaches the end of ironing board but doesn't get tangled. The water holder is see through so can judge when it's coming to empty. The steamer capacity is efficient and powerful. The sole plate is very smooth and nice to use. Most importantly it irons very well, it is extremely light and very easy to use. In vibrant red compliments my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great easy to use iron [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Can’t fault this iron. My favourite features are it is light to use and the auto steam feature is great as it does it automatically for you. It is easy to fill the water and empty. The sole plate glides over the fabric and makes ironing easier. I was impressed even when ironing denim at how easily the creases were removed. Only thing is not sure if different colours would be available as some may want to coordinate with there other appliances, however overall this is a great iron.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iron looks good and works well [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Smart looking iron which works well. Has an easy dial for temperature control and two buttons one for water spray and the other for a shot of steam. Also can be used for vertical steaming of wrinkles from hanging clothes or curtains. Would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light iron Does the job well, as it's light it does feel like it's not going to be as good as a heavier iron, but it's better than my previous, even on lower heats. It really needs cord storage though. This is a big letdown for me can't even wrap around the iron without it all sliding off

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great iron I needed a ‘cheap’ iron in a hurry, until I had the money for a ‘decent’ one. I have to say that not only does it look great, but it works brilliantly. I’ll defo be keeping this ‘cheap’ iron. I would absolutely recommend it. I do which it had a longer cord though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn’t do the job I liked the look of the iron and it was a great price. Used it for the first time and it was fine, it as much steam as I would have liked but for the price paid theought it was a well designed iron. Tried to use it the 2nd time and very little steam came out, 3rd time just the same and it wouldn’t iron all the creases out of shirts so returned it. Now trying the same make but one that cost twice the price!
Date published: 2018-11-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good iron Overall I am pleased with the iron. The heat settings aren’t quite the same as my old iron and I’m still trying to figure out the lower heat setting to get it to work satisfactorily, but it works well in the high setting and is very smooth to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic iron for a realistic price. This iron is fantastic. I wanted an iron with a really good steam output, but didn't want to pay the earth for it. This is the most inexpensive iron I have ever bought, but is the best performing. I absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Iron for the price After having a gGenerator steam iron for the past 10 years. I was a little apprehensive about purchasing a standard iron, however I need not have been. I found this iron equaly as good. Does the job perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iron like a pro! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We were delighted to receive the new Russell Hobbs model. Thus far, we've used and tested it three times. The iron is light, comes with a lengthy cord which doesn't kink - unlike some other irons we've used previously. It's easy to handle and use and with minimum effort, presses all kinds of fabrics. It's especially effective in with dealing with shirt creases. We can certainly recommend the Russell Hobbs 22520 Autosteam Pro Steam Iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bargain buy Bought this iron after my steam generator iron gave up half way through my mount vesuvius of ironing piles. I read the reviews and went for it, as it was an emergency, what a pleasant surprise it was, it irons beautifully, has plenty of steam, not obviously as much as a steam generator but it is genuinely good! Ok it's not the sleekest of models, but it isn't heavy to use, basically it was cheap and it works, proof you don't always need to spend a lot to get a good product.
