If your Philips steam generator iron will not start the Calc-Clean process, we are here to help. Follow these tips and tricks.

The steam generator won't start the Calc-Clean process

One of the Calc-Clean steps was followed incorrectly or was not followed.

Please follow these steps:

For irons SpeedCare or FastCare (with a dial):

  1. Prepare the Iron for Calc-Clean: Fill the water container halfway. Plug in the appliance and switch it on. Place the Cal-Clean tray under the iron. Set the temperature dial to the “Calc-Clean” setting and wait for the iron to heat up

  2. Press the Calc-Clean button: Press the Calc-Clean button for 2 seconds until the appliance starts beeping. The iron will start the Calc-Clean process (and it will continue beeping during this process).

For irons PerfectCare Viva, Compact or Aqua (without a dial):

  1. Prepare the iron for Calc-Clean: Fill the water container halfway. Plug in the steam generator and switch ON. Place the Cal-Clean tray under the iron.

  2. Press the Calc-Clean button: Press the Calc-Clean button for 2 seconds until the iron starts beeping. Then the iron will start the Calc-Clean process. Please note that it will continue beeping during the Calc-Clean process.

  3. Wait until Calc-Clean has finished: The Calc-Cleaning will take around 2 minutes; do not interrupt it. When the Calc-Cleaning has finished the iron will stop beeping.

  4. Empty the Calc-Clean tray: After the Calc-Clean process has finished, there is hot water in the Calc-Clean tray. You can let the water in the Calc-Clean tray cool down or carefully empty the tray in the sink.
