Question about Euro-Pro EP1005 Iron
This unit has two heaters in it. One is for the water and the other is for the iron. There is either a thermal cutoff fuse or a bad heater element in the steamer section. The availability of parts and service is not good. I would get another one or a different one.

The water aperture inside the iron is clogged and no water is entering the steam chamber. You may find that a mixture of caustic soda and warm water will clear the aperture or you can try any of the proprietary iron cleaners. The aperture becomes clogged with calcium and other impurities and attempting to clean out the aperture usually fails but this is cheaper then replacing the iron so give it a go.. It may also be that the heating element is not reaching a high enough temperature to vaporise the water into steam so check that the iron is getting hot enough BUT DON'T TOUCH IT, Flick water onto the sole plate when the iron is upto temp, if it slowly boils away then it aint hot enough, it should splatter into steam..

Internal there is a heating element that can burn out. Its kinda the same as you have in a dryer when it decides not to heat. You can check it for resistance if you can access it. Then you can order the part. If it has no resistance like no number then its bad

Hello Laverneray, I would like you to know how your iron works first. The way your Iron is built is as simple as this: When you put on your Iron, without activating or turning-on the steam tab, only the heating element inside the iron works, which is being controlled by a bi-metallic strip, and allows you to iron your clothes that do not require steam, Now, when you activate the steam tab, a small, white, heating box at the base of the Iron is being supplied an electric current, and it becomes hot. The heat generated by this box gets the water inside the Iron very hot, and as soon as you keep pressing your clothes after this, Hot water in steam form or aerosols, spray on your clothes, making it easier to Iron tough clothes. If the voltage now becomes really high more than the specified amount, or there is any other voltage fluctuation, this small heating box might get damaged, and this is exactly what I suspect happened to your Steam Iron. In this case, There are three options that I would tell you: 1. Try to get a very good electrician to remove this box for you, open it up, and see if it is something that can be fixed. If yes, then just tell him to fix it for you, you might need to pay a little for his services. 2. If he says it cant be fixed, then ask him whether you can get an Iron of the same type, or that uses the same mechanism, but a fairly-used one, which still has its heating box functional/working properly, then tell him to remove it and fix it for you. 3. Go to an electric store, preferably where you initially bought the Iron from, and ask them if you can get a spare part of the Iron itself, if they say yes, then just buy it from them, and let them, or a very good electrician fix it for you. Let me know how it goes / Keep me posted about the problem. Hope this helps you out. Good luck.

there is a heating element and a heater in the iron.the heating element is for iron heating and heater to heat the water and get stem.in your iron the heater is got faulty and not working.as you mentioned two wires .yes there are two wires.one goes for heater and other for heating element.may be its possible that heater wire is got short in between or got cut in between.so it needs to be checked and replaced after confirming either is wire or the heater itself that is faulty.you will have to check out this with multi merer.

Hello. i can assist you. It appears that your iron is heating up but you are not seeing any steam generated. There are a few possible causes for this: 1. On/Off button is not in the “ON” position.2.Steam generator has no more water.3.Unit is not plugged in.4.Steam is not visible because the temperature of the soleplate is at maximum and room temperature is high.5.Generator is not fully heated.
And here are some solutions for you to consider: 1.Press the On/Off button to the “ON” position.2.Fill with water as per instructions.3.Make sure that the On/Off button is in the “OFF” position and plug the unit into an electrical outlet.4/5. The heating time for the generator is approximately 9 minutes. Watch for the steam ready light to go off indicating that steam is ready. Regards, Joe

Check the solenoid steam valve which is fitted on the steam tank output pipe, there is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged it up. Fill the reservoir with vinegar and water (50-50) and allow it to soak for 24 hours, then reheat and shake vigorously to drain. After you do that, rinse it out and retry
