I can't find anyone who actually repairs these steam presses. However, I did find a phone number you can call. They might be able to answer your question and tell you where to take your digital press for repair. The number is 800-401-8151

There are too many variables in what is called a steam press and several brands (commercial and home style) so go with your brand name and ask your question.
They should be able to help you find a service shop in your area.

They can probably also give you a manual which may have the answer you need..

I was trying to clean my presser and was trying to take the screws off where the the steam comes out. I'm stuck because I can't take the 1 screw out in the back of the press. I would like to know if there's somewhere I can take it like a repair shop to put it back together?

There really are no repair shops for irons. You could look for a private handyman to do it. It would not cost much. Look in the yellow pages of your phone book.

I have a steam press, but it is not producing any steam. It does not have a steam button on it, all there is, is the temperature dial.

It does not have a manual as it was given to me. I do not know if it could be limescale and if it is how do I clean it?

I'm not sure what model you have but I have not seen a manual for a Hinari - it is possible another make of steam press will be similar. I have an older Singer and my steam button is on the handle but it has to be on cotton (hot) for steam to work.
I cannot remove my water tank so I just run vinegar through it keep it clean and just use distilled water.
Have you been able to remove you water tank? If so, maybe a good cleaning would help. If you cannot locate a steam button then try the setting on high and see if that helps.
I do not know where you live but I found some Hinari steam presses for sale on eBay in the UK. Take a look at the listings and if any one of them looks similar to yours then go on the site and find the "ask seller a question" and send them a message and ask if they could look at the machine and maybe help you. Most sellers are nice and may be able to help you.

Does the plate have holes? Does it have a container to fill it with water? If yes, then it has steam but without a button. Otherwise, it's not a steam press. Just a press.

You might have sediment clogging it up. Take it to the sink and disassemble.

Unscrew the small drainage valve on the side at the bottom and flush through with clean cold water.

It is difficult to find a repair shop for steam presses but Singer does have a web site with free manuals and support contact information.

  • Find your model number and check this Singer link for a free manual.
  • http://www.sing  truction-manuals
  • This problem may be resolved with just a good cleaning and the manuals have pretty clear cleaning instructions.
  • Here is also a link to contact Singer support. Look carefully as they have telephone number and email address if after business hours.

The switch may be gone or the inner wiring corroded/burnt. You may have to get a new one.

I purchased an Elna Press Graffiti steam press about 2 yrs ago, it worked great. I can't imagine not having one since I discovered how handy they are. Well, last year (end of 2010) it just stopped powering on. I have been missing using it badly, a regular iron just isn't the same.

I replaced the plug because I thought it might be that but still no power. I unscrewed the casing and looked inside to see if I could notice any obvious sign of damage or whatever, but I really have no clue as to what each item should look like. Nothing I could visually see looked burnt out or anything, but I haven't tested anything else. I can possibly get a hold of a voltage tester thing, but need to know what I may need to check out. I wish I knew of a cheap repair center locally, but have no idea how to search/find a small appliance repair center. I thought maybe I could try a hand at it myself.

Any thoughts or ideas of what may be wrong with my machine?

Thanks.

Let your fingers do the walking and start here it is in Nebraska but I Googled Elna press grafitti and got a bunch including your listing here, try it and ask questions. If you have the book it has a schematic in it of everything and where it is and some trouble shooting directions as well. Good luck.

My mega stem press iron has stopped heating half way through my ironing. I've turned it off and on again but it didn't heat up. Can the thermostat break? The lights are all coming on, but it does not heat. I am devastated cos it cost so much and I am totally converted to steam presses now. Please help someone. Any suggestions?

The heat will come on and heat up for all settings, but after the yellow light comes on a very little time passes until the power will shut down. This has happened on the lowest setting to the highest setting. By opening the presser and closing it again the cycle will start again.
