Customer Questions
Dirty water and impurities come out of the soleplate during ironing, what should I do?

Self clean is required or has not been carried out correctly - Refer to the instruction booklet for self clean instructions.

Descaling required (if not a self clean iron) - Descale using a suitable descaler for plastic parts and follow instructions on the packet.

The iron may also require new filter cartridges.

Is it necessary to empty the water tank after each use?

Yes, we recommend you always empty the water tank after use and store the iron in an upright position to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.

The steam generator does not produce any steam. What can I do?

There is an airlock in the unit - Prime the unit by putting the generator unit on the floor and hold the iron itself up higher. Make sure that you have the heat and steam settings on 'maximum' then keep your finger on the trigger for about 5 – 6 minutes without letting go and try shaking the wire. This will not damage the unit and we only advise our customers to do this if they have an air lock.

Whilst carrying out the above you will hear the usual pulsating noise as normal, which should go quieter as the shot of steam works its way through the unit.

You can also try to prime the unit the opposite way round by having the generator unit on a high surface holding the iron at a lower level.

Why does the steam output get weaker?. What should I do?

It is common for the Steam generator to experience dip in steam pressure/ output when the water is being pumped from water tank to the boiler. This dip is momentarily and it restores to normal rate.

It is also common for the initial burst of steam to be higher and it tapers off to a steady level with continuous triggering of the steam trigger.

This is due to the initial release of build up pressure inside the boiler and this pressure will drop to a steady state level when the steam trigger is continuously depressed. It builds up pressure again when the trigger is released.

If steam output does not recover, kindly check steam generator panel for any notifications and take remedial action. e.g. water tank empty light or steam generator gone into standby mode.

What type of water should I use?

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

In case you live in an area with very hard water, fast scale build-up may occur. Therefore, it is recommended to mix 50% distilled water and 50% tap water, or to use only distilled water to prolong the lifetime of your appliance.

Do not put perfume, vinegar, starch, descaling agents, ironing aids or other chemicals in the water tank, as your appliance is not designed to work with these chemicals.

The water at home goes through a softener, will this have any affect inside the machine?

There are different types of water softener, if it is a filter it is OK.

If it is adding chemicals or additives into the water, it may damage the Steam Generator and give a poor steam performance.

Why does the steam generator switch off by itself.

Some of our irons have an auto-off function which is activated automatically when the steam generator has not been used for around 15 minutes.

Press the power on/off button to switch on the steam generator again.

How to fill/refill water when tank is empty?

The water tank is detachable. Detach it, and fill the water tank under the tap. You may fill the water tank any time during ironing.

How to avoid the iron leaving shine/ print on my garment during ironing?

The likely cause for this is that the garment surface being ironed is uneven; such as pocket or fold line below the garment.

To prevent shine/print, avoid ironing over uneven surface or use a piece of cotton over the surface during ironing.

What causes the noise in the steam generator when I press the steam trigger? Is this noise normal?

This noise is caused by movement of the valve that lets steam pass from the steam generator to the iron each time when the steam trigger is pressed. This sound is normal.

I hear noise coming out of the steam generator during ironing. Is this normal?

It is normal to hear occasional pumping sounds coming out of the steam generator when water is pumped from the water tank into the steam generator.

Water droplets appear on the garment during ironing

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 trigger. 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. This minimise steam condensation on the ironing board.

When possible, select a lower steam setting or use less steam during ironing.

Use steam ironing during the first few strokes of the iron across the garment, then release the steam trigger and finish up with dry-ironing strokes.

Replace the ironing board cover if the sponge material has worn out. You can also put an extra layer of felt between the ironing board and the ironing board cover to minimise condensation on the ironing board.

Water droplets come out of the soleplate during ironing, what should I do?

The droplets are caused by steam that was still present in the hose which has cooled down and condensed into water. This causes water droplets to come out of the soleplate.

To reduce this occurrence, it is recommended Steam away from the garment for a few seconds first.

How to clear an airlock on a steam generator iron?

Prime the unit by putting the generator unit on the floor and hold the iron itself up higher. Make sure that you have the heat and steam settings on 'maximum' then keep your finger on the trigger for about 5 – 6 minutes without letting go and try shaking the wire. This will not damage the unit and we only advise our customers to do this if they have an air lock.

Whilst carrying out the above you will hear the usual pulsating noise as normal, which should go quieter as the shot of steam works its way through the unit.

You can also try to prime the unit the opposite way round by having the generator unit on a high surface holding the iron at a lower level.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not live up to expectation This product looks fabulous and was, according to description, just what I was looking for. However, upon first use I found that the iron made a 'chugging' noise when the steam ejection button was depressed and the steam took around 10 seconds to emerge from the sole plate, by which time I had already ironed the garment. I'm not sure if the pump was working correctly. Also, the steam can only be ejected when the temperature was turned up to to 3 dots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy At first glance this was much bigger than my usual iron and I thought it would put me off a little but upon using it I fell in love! The bottom tank is just for water and acts as a sturdy stand for the iron itself. The iron heats up extremely quickly so wait time is minimal, which is perfect for a busy mum like me. The iron itself has a smooth ceramic plate that glides over my clothes effortlessly, the steam is super powerful and easily smooths stubborn creases out of my cotton items without keep having to go over and over repeatedly. It’s cut my ironing time down too which is always a bonus! I’d highly recommend this iron

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good steam iron A switch from my last two irons which were Morphy richards. A neat design, fits on my counter top better than the previous ones. Has a simple on and off switch at the front which is accessible. Easy to fill water tank. However I instantly noticed it does not produce steam at the press of a button. I like to iron quickly and this delay either makes you miss the crease or waste the steam. But produces good amount of steam comparatively. Not sure if that bothers others as much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very powerful, worst I’ve had I have had about seven different steam generator irons over the years. This is by far the worst, there is very little steam, it doesn’t penetrate through to the other side of the clothing and takes ages to decrease the side your ironing. Would definitely NOT recommend this iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Iron! We've had 4 power steam irons and this one is the best. The steam is very powerful and continues even after you release the button. The carry handles are great feature, making it so easy to move about, especially when it's still hot. Also the plug and cable tidy, is a real help when storing away. I would definitely recommend this iron.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Steam generation slow to operate Nice product although sole plate a little smaller than my previous one. One annoying feature is the delay in steam produced by the iron. Steam is not generated immediately and you could have the sleeve of a shirt ironed before the steam appears. Plenty of steam... just too late.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't fault it! As a professional seamstress and busy mum, I need a heavy duty iron, I did allot of research into steam generators before I finally settled in this iron and I have not been disappointed. It's lightweight and easy to use, the water tank is large enough to get through a full basket with some spare, the steam is powerful and it cuts thrpugh the oroning in no time. It does exactly what it claims to do!
