How to release the stuck steam button stuck in the up position in a morphy richard


On this model i believe you have to slide the button back to release perminent steam function. I am not sure what screws are on this iron as to what they are called.

regards, I hope this was useful.

What can be done about leaking steam?


ensure your iron steam button is not set into perminent steam function. leaving the iron with the point of the iron pointing upwards should reduce steam to the handle. also the iron may need to be descaled to ensure any steam switch funtion is not stuck in an on position.

Too hot to handle spits water from sides Bosch sensixx B10L


I just fixed mine - it had exactly the same problem.

First, though, check it's not within the Bosch TWO year guarantee; if it is, they'll either fix or replace it.

If it's not under guarantee then the problem is probably the rubber tubing that connects the external steam tube to the hotplate. You'll need to dismantle the iron. Mine had split right next to the spring clip that holds it on. I shortened it, clipped it back on and all is now well.

Bosch Sensixx B25L


see the instruction from your manual:
Check the owner's manual for your iron to learn the manufacturer's suggestions for cleaning, what water to use, and storage tips.
Soft-water systems add minerals that can harm an electric steam iron and your clothes so don't fill the iron with softened water. Instead, use filtered or distilled water.
2) if the iron does not heat a( test the power cord for open or defective b) and thermostat for adjust c) test the thermal fuse d) test the heating element for open.

HI I have a Bosch Sensixx B25L iron. Steam isn't coming out of holes, seems to be escaping from edge of iron. Handle very hot (Too hot to hold on to), burns your hand when steam button is pressed

How do I dismantle the handle assembley so I can get at the screw under the front? It seems to have some sort of retaining clip at the steaming/water spray buttons


I've just done this 20 minutes ago.
Just between the 0-1-2 lever and the 0-1-2 script is a plastic catch (both sides)
Slide a medium screwdriver into the gap at this point, pushing hard and levering up.
This should just free the catch.
Do the same the other side and then lever the handle up. It will only go up about 1/2 inch.
Now go to the very front of the handle and do the same thing, both sides.
You should now be able to lever the top end of the front piece of handle past the middle piece that you levered up first, and then it will come off, revealing the front screw. Its made a bit more difficult because of the water jet, but comes off with a bit of a wriggle.
When you put this piece back on take care to get the water input spout into the tube before you push down too hard.
(My problem was a main power connector had burned out causing a short circuit and blowing the house circuit breaker. I soldered the connection and it seems to be working OK)

Steam button not working


I had the same problem. I found the trigger button at SmallAppliances.com. You'll have to pry off the rubber grip, and unscrew one or two screws on the handle, bu the trigger inserts neatly into the space. Screw it back together, snap on the rubber grip and it will work like new. Below is the part number & price.

Rowenta DG0123 Knob Trigger, Blue $9.99 (plus shipping)

Watch out, the next thing that will go is the on/off switch. Once it starts getting difficult to turn the unit on or off, just plug and unplug it until you get the new part, or you will be stuck one day and need the iron and go to turn it on and it wont start.

The part is $20, and the same site has it available.

Euro-Pro Steam Generator EP8015 - Rocker switch


The screws holding the unit together are T-20 TORX screws; the center post makes them anti-tamper TORX screws. These screws are used in applications in which the manufacturer does not want the average consumer to attempt repairs. Please don't take this wrong, but if you have to ask about the "unusual 6-sided screw", then you shouldn't be opening the unit.

Unfortunately, when the heating element rocker switch gives out (3-4 years), it is usually about time to overhaul the entire iron (both the tank portion as well as the iron portion). Other things that can cause problems are the thermostat and the pressure actuator.

Contact A2A Consulting at 1-888-830-3563; they can probably fix the unit for you.
