6400 series Pressurised ironing system

90 gr GC6420/03


Steam still coming out after having released my Philips steam iron's steam trigger.

Steam can be released from your Philips iron when you have released the steam trigger or when you have placed it back on the stand tray. Find out how you can prevent this.

Steam delay

Steam is generated in your Philips steam generator's soleplate. When you release the steam trigger, any remaining water is still transformed into steam. Therefore, steam is still emitted when you put the iron back, even though you no longer press the steam trigger. As the steam is directed at the stand tray and reflected, it creates the impression of a steam boost. This is normal.
Release the steam trigger 2 to 3 seconds before you place the iron back on the stand tray to avoid this phenomenon.
