My Philips steam generator iron is leaking from its base

In the unfortunate event of your Philips steam generator leaking water from its tank or body, there might be a simple solution. Discover how to solve it.

The iron is frequently put back on the base station

When your iron is put often back on its base station, steam condensation will occur. Due to that, water droplets might 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 a PerfectCare range with OptimalTemp, you can simply rest it on the ironing board.

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