Troubleshooting

My Philips steam iron does not remove creases

If your Philips Steam Iron is not removing wrinkles, find out how to solve this in the following lines.

The temperature is set too low

For irons with a temperature dial, please set the temperature according to the fabric that you are ironing. You can use the following table as a reference.

Note: For some fabrics such as silk, wool, cotton and linen, steam is required to remove creases more efficiently.

 
Setting the temperature on the Philips Steam Generator

Steam is not used

For steam generators: Press and hold the steam button/trigger below the handle of your Philips Steam Generator continuously to generate steam. When you release the button, your iron will stop steaming.
 
For steam irons: You can get more steam by using a shot of steam (a boost of steam) to help remove tough wrinkles. Press the steam boost trigger of your iron to increase the steam rate.
