My Philips Steam Iron is releasing smoke while heating up

Published on 06 April 2023

If your Philips Steam Iron is producing smoke, there can be several reasons. Please find out how we can help you.

During production, some parts of your Philips Steam Iron have been slightly greased.

As a result of this, your iron may produce some smoke when it is switched on for the first few times.

Do not worry, this is normal.

Sometimes, there might still be some remaining water in your iron’s soleplate after the last usage. This water will evaporate when your iron’s soleplate heats up, and that might look like smoke.

This is normal and will stop after a short while.
