Troubleshooting

My Philips steam generator iron makes a noise

Various types of noises (such as pumping, rattling, ticking) are produced during ironing with your Philips steam generator. Learn more here.

Water is being sent from the water tank to the steam generator

This noise usually comes from the base of your iron and should happen at regular intervals or every time the steam button is pressed.

This is perfectly normal and to be expected with any steam generator iron. It may be possible to reduce the noise by not placing the iron on a hard surface. You may also put a piece of soft material (such as a cloth) under the base.

A whooshing sound can be heard when steam comes out of the soleplate

High-pressure steam is causing this noise. This is normal for steam generator with high pressure steam.

You can reduce the steam by selecting the ECO setting (if available).

The steam iron makes a loud pumping noise

The water tank is empty.

When the water tank is empty, the pump gets dry and this can cause noise coming from your steam iron.

Please check the water level in your iron.

If the water tank is empty, fill it with water. Then press and hold the steam trigger until steam comes out of the soleplate.

If your iron is equipped with a water level magnet: Please check if it got stuck in the water container. If it did, you can release it by carefully shaking the water tank or by tapping the side of the container with your fingers.
