How to use my Philips Iron’s Smart Calc-Clean container

The Philips Steam Generator Calc Clean container allows you to descale your iron on any flat surface you choose, instead of going to the sink. Find out below how to use it.

Instructions to use the Calc-Clean container

  1. Fill the water tank halfway.
  2. Make sure that the iron is plugged in and switched on during the Calc-Clean process.
  3. Place the Smart Calc-Clean container on the ironing board or any other even surface.
  4. Place the iron on the Smart Calc-Clean container.
  5. Press and hold the Calc-Clean button for 2 seconds until you hear short beeps and the Calc-Clean process begins.
  6. During the Calc-Clean process, you hear short beeps and a pumping sound. Wait approximately two minutes for the iron to complete the process.
  7. When the Calc-Clean process is completed, the iron will produce a long beep and will then switch off.
  8. Wipe the iron with a piece of cloth and put it back on the base station.
  9. As the Smart Calc-Clean container becomes hot during the Calc-Clean process, wait approximately 5 minutes before you touch it.
  10. Carry the Smart Calc-Clean container to the sink, empty it and store it for future use.
  11. If necessary, you can repeat steps 1 to 10. Make sure that you empty the Calc-Clean container before you start the Calc-Clean process.

Important to know about the Calc-Clean process

During the Calc-Clean process do not leave your Philips iron unattended and do not interrupt the process or move the iron (hot steam and water will be coming out).

If clean water comes out of the soleplate during the Calc Clean process, this means that no scale has accumulated in the iron. This is normal behaviour.

Can I perform the Calc-Clean process without the Smart Calc-Clean container?

Please always perform the Calc-Clean process with the Calc-Clean container. The Smart Calc Clean container is designed for convenient use with your Philips Steam Generator Iron. It allows hands-free operation to ensure safety during the Calc-Clean process, whereby hot water and steam come out of the soleplate.

If your container is lost, please contact us.
