Chances are your vents are clogged. It happens when hard water leaves residue.

Pour some vinegar in the iron and let it steam. It will help. Also to keep it shiny on the bottom, scrub it with foil. Hope that helps.

It has a mineral buildup. Put some vinegar in it and let it sit overnight then drain it. I do that to my steam iron on occasion.

We have a steam iron that we haven't used for about a year. Before putting it away, we emptied the water from the reservoir. Now we are trying to get it to steam, but it won't. Any tips for cleaning it? We have only used this iron a couple of times.

You might try vinegar to unclog the sprayer. Leave the hot iron on a while, then empty and rinse a couple of times. Good luck.

My steam iron does not issue steam; it just spits out water and drenches the clothing. Any ideas?
