If the steam boost of your Philips Steam Iron stopped working, please find our troubleshooting advice below.
Steam irons only: The steam boost trigger has not been pressed and released

In this case, please wait for a couple of minutes until you use the steam boost again.
Steam generator irons only: The steam trigger was not pressed twice quickly
