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 Easy, Quick, Effective and stylish [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So pleased with this product, I found this fabric steamer easy to use,quick heat up and results were great.No more getting the ironing board out now! I just hang the item of clothing on the door and steam away all the crease.Its also great for curtains, bedsheets and other clothes tricky to iron. I keep this inside my closet and it looks very nice. I would highly recommend this steamer. Its also safe for use on delicate fabric because it comes with different attachments and travel bag. Overall great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nifty and practical [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great little iron, works quite well and comes in its own heat resistant bag, great for when you go away and need an iron , I was impressed how well it got the creases out of my daughters shirt , it’s a fabric that difficult to iron and I think it did really well, downside is that it does feel quite heavy after awhile of holding it. I used one of the attachments to steam clean the sofa arms and it worked a dream at getting rid of some stubborn stain. Brilliant for killing bacteria too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steaming masterpiece!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Russel Hobbs Steam Genie is a steaming masterpiece! We lead busy lifestyles and when you need to iron something very quickly it does the job with grace. We have ironed school clothes, jeans and T-shirts with ease, always taking out the creases and it never leaves any residue like previous irons. It comes with different attachments, depending on what your doing and it heats up really fast. It kills 99.9% of bacteria in 60 seconds for fresher, more hygienic fabrics and it has one temperature technology which makes it fast and effortless to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 in 1 feature makes it easy to use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As an adult with a child who needs their uniform ironing everyday and not having the time to get an ironing board out every day. The steamer feature on this makes life so much more simple by just being able to steal over the clothes. When I have more time I can use the iron feature. Both work well. Small enough to be easily stored away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Buy in a long time Wish I had discovered this little gem years ago if I’m honest.. takes a little while to get it right but once you get going it so much easier than using an iron.. just hang your clothes on a door frame and get the steamer over them.. great on blazers and delicates. Really does get the creases out without the shiny marks left by an iron.. does get heavy if you do a lot of clothes in one go like I have been..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bit of kit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Fantastic steamer , I purchased this to steam my curtains but after testing it on some clothes I have now chucked my iron out. This is very impressive I have four young children and as you can imagine alot of school shirts, even though the iron plate is smaller then a average iron , it does the job twice as quick the amount of steam is brilliant. Well worth the money, I have recommended this to friends and family.
