My Philips steam generator iron is leaking from its base

In the unfortunate event that your Philips steam generator iron is leaking water from its tank, there may be a simple solution. Find out how to resolve this.

The iron is frequently put back on the base station

When your iron is put back on its base station often, steam condensation will occur. The condensed steam is safely guided internally through the base station. Due to this, water droplets may be noticed underneath the base station (Figure 1).

To avoid this, rest your iron vertically on its heel during ironing (Figure 2).

Note: If your steam generator iron belongs to the PerfectCare range with OptimalTemp, you can simply rest it on the ironing board.

The EASY De-calc knob needs to be tightened

If your Philips steam generator iron has an EASY De-calc knob and this is not tightened enough, water may leak from it.

Please make sure that the knob is correctly positioned and tightened.
