Troubleshooting

How to de-scale my Philips Steam iron?

De-scaling your Philips Steam iron will increase its lifespan and improve its performance. Just follow these steps to make your steam iron last.

Step-by-step instructions

1) Make sure the appliance is unplugged
2) Set the steam slider to 'no steam'
3) Fill the water tank to the MAX level
4) Insert the plug in an earthed wall socket
5) Wait for the iron to heat up
6) Unplug the iron
7) Hold the iron over the sink, press and hold the Calc-Clean button and gently shake the iron back and forth

  • Note: Steam and boiling water come out of the soleplate. Impurities and flakes (if any) are flushed out.

8) Release the Calc-Clean button as soon as all the water in the tank has been used up
9) Repeat steps 1 to 7 when you still see impurities and flakes

Descaling the iron

After the Calc-Clean process

1) Put the plug back into the wall socket, and let the iron heat up to dry the soleplate
2) When the iron has heated up, move the iron gently over a piece of used cloth to remove any water stains that may have formed on the soleplate
3) Unplug the iron and let it cool down before you store it
