Troubleshooting

The iron releases steam without pressing the button. What happened? What can I do?

One possible reason is that the steam boost has been activated. It can be activated by pressing the steam trigger quickly 2 times. In this mode, the steam generator will deliver high continuous steam output. To deactivate, simply press the steam trigger one time.
