My Philips Steam Iron does not produce steam

If your Philips Steam Iron has stopped producing steam, please read our troubleshooting advice below to solve this.

There is no water in the water tank

If there is no water in the water tank of your Philips Steam Iron, your iron is not able to generate steam. Please refill the water tank with water. After this, your iron should work again.

The iron is not ready to steam

In this case, wait until the orange "temperature indicator" light switches off, then your iron will be ready to produce steam.

Note: For the irons with OptimalTemp, the iron-ready light will stay on when the iron is ready to produce steam.
