My Philips Steam generator beeps and does not work

If your Philips Steam generator does not work and is beeping, we are here to help. Just follow these steps to solve it yourself.


Did the beeping sound start within a minute after the appliance was plugged into the wall socket?

If so, the beeping is due to the Auto Calc cleaning feature of the appliance attempting to clean itself. This process will take about 3 minutes to complete. After the three minutes, your Philips Steam generator will work as per normal. See the Auto Calc cleaning section in the manual for more info.


Check if the water tank indicator is illuminated.

If so, the water level in the tank is too low. Kindly fill up the water tank to the MAX level and resume your ironing.


The water level floater inside the water tank is perhaps stuck.

Open the water tank cover and gently touch the floater to release it. Check the manual for more information.

The information on this page applies to the following models: GC9940/05 , GC9920/05 .
