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 5 out of 5 by from Clean steam [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Straight out the box a weighted sturdy iron with a secure feeling fill point for the water. Beeps when you turn it on. This doesn’t turn the heat on though. Press the temp button another bleep and a long bleep when it reaches temperature.More presses, more beeps and further up the temp chart you go.the steam press produces a powerful burst of steam both vertical and horizontal. Glides effortlessly across clothes but the scallop on the point sometimes catches. All in all a quality iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best iron I have ever tried [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love this iron,very sturdy,luxurious and modern. Love the colour of iron also has different colour settings so you can tell what setting is on and iron turns that colour e.g blue very low and red very high. Love that it’s digital on settings.Large water tank for longer steam ironing.The iron self cleans so makes it even easier and less time consuming. There’s colour protecting conditioner infused in the iron plates to maintain colour on fabrics. The iron also beeps when ready to use! Very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A heavy robust iron [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Takes out creases with a smooth glide. A special colour code system for heat & the type of material you are ironing. Pressing a button behind the spray/steam buttons, changes the settings with ease. Flashing coloured lights, whilst heating, a solid light on reaching the correct temperature. Included water container, with an accessible large, easy fill capacity tank. Has an extremely long cable. The steam jet on full, lifts the iron from the clothing, it is that powerful! I’d recommend this iron.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid product Bought this recently and found it lived up to the adverts. Only real downside is that it is quite heavy, and definitely not arthritis friendly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confusing Although this is a fairly powerful Iron, unfortunately the 'colour coding' is pointless in my opinion. This system only confusing at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Russell Hobbs 25400 Colour Control Steam Iron [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I findt it light,and easy to use due to its long cord. I used it on cotton, silk and synthetic garments. I was impressed how easy it battles the crease and glides across fabrics. This colour-protect innovation is brilliant: no shiny marks on black suit trousers. Now I finish my work quicker thanks to ingenious fast heat ceramic plate. I am happy with the steam function as it works really well. I tried it on coloured blazers. I am well happy with this new iron and I definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colour temperature features [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm very surprised with the colour control feature as I didn't think it would be easy to use but I was wrong very easy to use easy to control the colours. I like the fact that when you are ironing and stop for a while it automatically turns off then on again once your start. It's a very nice iron does the job well. The water jug that comes is a bit small but not a problem for me as I tend to use a very big hub so I don't go back and forward all the time. I would definitely recommend this iron.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK - ish. I never use the steam feature of irons because my choice of fabric means it's not suitable.I have trouble getting an iron to be used dry that are actually hot enough. This is almost there but not quite on the hottest setting and have to go over the fabric a couple of times.. The shape of the iron is good, with the well defined point, the cable is nice and long but it's fairly heavy. I like the fancy colour coding for temps as well as the safety features.
