My Philips Stand Garment Steamer is steaming weakly or irregularly

Published on 2021-07-04

If you notice that the steam coming from your Philips Stand Garment Steamer is weak or irregular, there might be a simple solution. Please read more here.

When the steam setting is low, the steam output might seem weaker than expected. Please, try choosing a higher steam setting.

If your stand steamer is steaming weakly, then it needs to be descaled.

To solve this, please descale it as follows:

1) Switch off and unplug your stand steamer. Allow it to cool down for an hour.

2) Bring the steamer to a sink.

3) Locate the de-calc knob (you will find it on the lower area of the water tank).

4) Turn the de-calc knob anti-clockwise to unlock it.

5) Pull the de-calc knob out and let the water drain.

6) Once all water is drained, push the de-calc knob back in and turn it clockwise to lock it.

When your Philips Steamer’s hose is not straight (e.g. it is forming a U-shape), steam cannot move freely and water condenses in it. This causes its output to be irregular.

To solve this, lift up the steamer’s head to straightened the hose. This will allows condensation to flow back into water tank.
