Troubleshooting

White flakes coming off of my Philips steam iron after the Calc-Clean process

The Calc-Clean process for your Philips steam generator removes most of the limescale and organic residue. If you use very hard water, it could happen that you still experience flaking. In order to improve this, please perform the descaling process again. Please follow www.philips.com/descaling for your iron.
