The Iron makes a noise like a 50 calibre machine gun when it pumps up ...
on 20 July 2015
There are two 'O' rings that come off or perish. They are situated at the top front of the base unit,where the water tank attaches. Ever since I had this Iron I learned to check every time you refill the tank that one of them has not come off and fallen inside the water tank! The Iron makes a noise like a 50 calibre machine gun when it pumps up the steam. If these 'O' rings are not seated properly it will rattle out this noise continuously! The smooth seating of the water tank is constantly compromised by this system and if you are not mechanically aware it will completely baffle you when you expect it just to click into place and do its job. I now have to buy an 'O' ring kit to try and sort it out but I should have sent the thing back as it is not merchantable quality. Worst household purchase I have had the misfortune to have made.
