Troubleshooting

My Philips steam iron's steam pressure is low

If you encounter low steam pressure with your Philips steam generator, there might be a simple solution.

If you encounter low steam pressure, this may be due to the 3 scenarios below:

  1. You do not press the steam trigger continuously. Keep the steam trigger pressed continuously when you move the iron over the fabric.
  2. You are using ECO mode. For more steam, switch off ECO mode by pressing the ECO button. The green ECO light goes off.
  3. Calc build-up in the soleplate may cause a reduction in steam pressure. Perform the Calc-Clean process regularly.
