The water light is blinking on my Philips steam iron

If the orange or blue water refill light is blinking on your Philips steam generator iron even though there is water in the tank, read on to find out how to solve this yourself.

The water refill light (blue or orange) is blinking

The magnetic sensor in the tank that detects the water level may be stuck.

Try to gently shake the water tank to release the sensor (please note that the sensor is not visible from outside the tank). If you have a detachable water tank, when you reinsert the tank the light should turn off.

If the problem persists, we recommend you to contact Philips Consumer Care and request a repair.
