Troubleshooting

My Philips Steam iron is leaking from its soleplate

In the unfortunate even of your Philips Steam iron leaking water, there might be a simple solution. Discover how to solve it yourself.

Three reasons:

1) Steam is used when the temperature is too low (at the non steaming zone)

Refer to temperature dial (steaming zone - darken area)

Note: Dial graphics is for illustration purpose only and may differ from the dial of specific models.

Turn the temperature dial to the steaming zone and let iron heat up in heel-rest position for one minute before you resume ironing.

2) Your iron produces a lot of steam

Steam could have condensed on the board cover, making it wet and cause water marks on your garment when the iron is pressed on it.

Refer to question related to water leakage due to board condensation.

3) Ironing aids or fragrance water could have been added to the water tank

This delays the steaming function, causing water to leak. Use only tap water or distilled water or a mixed of these two types of water.
