I initially bought this iron from Argos with their extended warranty, I was back within a year because mid ironing the iron would switch off, show there was no water in the system, or blow out brown dust. Replaced for the same iron, thinking it was just a faulty one and after a few months same problems arose. I packed it in a box and have left it there for about 2 years, using a cheap iron instead. Decided to give it another go recently and remembered why it made a not enjoyable task even less enjoyable

First time with this type of iron and I would not got back! More effective than a conventional steam iron, it is so easy to use. Great results every time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Taneh Steam generator stopped working
After less than 2 years and only using the iron very minimally the steam has stopped working. Not only that but the brown marks are increasing.

My iron has just deposited brown water AGAIN for the 99th time. I am heartily sick of using the CALC clean facility and re-washing the items it decides to throw up on. Have only just finished paying for this as I purchased it from my catalogue.
Have used Philips products for years but am really disappointed this time. Am choosing another manufacturer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kaz1997 Not happy with brown water marks
I purchased this product as in the past Philips has been a name I can trust.
At first this iron was fantastic, I could wizz though my ironing in half the normal time. It is cleaned out regularly as per instructions, however the iron now insists on spiting out water and leaves brown marks.
I have followed all the advice from other websites and still the problem remains. Its driving me mad!!!!!
The Iron is also big and bulky and storage can be a nuisance, especially when it comes to the leads.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tolly Loud worrying noise
I'm not over- pleased with my iron; it's not easy to carry and move around and the cable storage is pretty ineffective so, dangerously, I don't use it.The really worrying thing is the additional noise it makes (an electric-crackling type of sound) during ironing mainly after I've pressed the steam boost button or steam activator. It's a noise that feels like I should be worried about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shevy Brown water marks!
I have exactly the same problem as Lintere07 reviewer. I have spent the last 15 minutes trying to get a brown / reddish stain out of a new white shirt. This is not the 1st time it has happened and I am starting to feel that it is an inferior product. I clean the product regulary and now feel that I cannot trust the iron which is such a shame as it is so easy to use.
I too purchased the item from John Lewis in MK.
