Troubleshooting

My Philips Steam Generator is leaking water droplets

When using the Philips Steam Generator, water droplets may appear on your clothes. Find out why this occurs and how to prevent it.

Condensation

Water droplets appear because steam has condensed on the ironing board. You can easily dry the wet spots on your garment and the ironing board cover by ironing it without pressing the steam trigger. If the bottom of the ironing board is wet, wipe it dry with a cloth. Make sure you use a mesh-top ironing board with a thick felt material.

Minimise steam condensation

When possible, select a lower steam setting or use less steam while ironing. Use steam ironing during the first few strokes and release the steam trigger to finish up with dry-ironing strokes. Replace the ironing board cover if the sponge material has worn out. You can also put an extra layer of felt between the ironing board and the ironing board cover to minimise condensation on the ironing board.
