Irons - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I'm having a similar problem. I've used mine quite often a few years ago and went to use it recently and now no steam. I've taken my fcl-ss167 apart and there is a water filter inside the base. The water filter may be too full of calcium carbonate to pass water. The water filter is removable but I have not yet found one to replace it.

I would go online to the manufacturer's web site for the information.

I'm looking for a solution to why the thread cutter isn't working. It just pulls the thread into a knot and jams the bobbin case. I was hoping for an answer here but the answer had nothing to do with the question!

To disassemble the Russell Hobbs 15081 steam glide iron, you have to remove the two hidden screws on the handle. To locate the first screw remove the two adjacent blue buttons which are each held in with two hidden clips front and rear, so lever out with small screwdriver or similar. The second hidden screw is under the pivots of the water inlet lid.(I broke one of the plastic pivots but no big deal). Then using a thin blade, separate the top half of the handle from the bottom half of the handle. A bit of force is needed as there are more plastic clips. I started from the rear.
Once the top half the handle is removed, other screws become visible, so teardown is not hard, just note which screws go where, as they are different lengths.
My problem was that some of the screws/bolts were so corroded I needed to drill them out. The thermostat was also corroded, which probably explained why the thermal fuse had blown. The element was fine.

There are no user serviceable parts in this device. unplug it for 2 minutes- make sure the reservoir is filled with water, and the power is off- plug it in and turn thee power on- wait for the ready light to illuminate and try to use it.
good luck
