Troubleshooting

My Philips iron doesn't steam right after pressing the trigger

If you wonder why your Philips iron sometimes doesn't steam right after you press the steam trigger, please read on.

Water is converted into steam

Water needs to be converted into steam in your Philips steam generator's soleplate. When pressing the steam trigger on your Philips steam iron, it may take one to two seconds until steam is generated and released. This is normal behaviour.

Keep the steam trigger pressed continuously when you move the iron over the fabric.
