My Philips Steam iron (vertical) steam boost does not work

If your Philips Steam iron vertical steam or steam boost function does not operate, there might be a simple solution. Just follow these tips and tricks.

Tips and tricks:

  1. The (vertical) steam boost function has been used too much within a very short period
