Flashing Blue Light Solved

published

My iron is now 1.5 years old and I use this iron several times a week. It works well and I love that there is no setting knob to accidentally spin around when in use. I also had the flashing blue light problem, whereby it would flash rapidly and it had to be switched off, then on to operate. I re-read the book, read the website and, nothing. Experimentation was required. I finally discovered that the flashing blue light is trying to tell you that the water should be filled to maximum each time. I now top it up to full before use and I have NO blue flashing light in the last 6 months of usage. Philips, you have failed to add important information into your manual. I still think that its a great iron.

Perfect iron

published

I love this iron. Great on all fabrics and does not snag. I Has a large water chamber which I like so I don’t have to keep refilling for steam. I like that it has a number of setting as well even though I find even the max setting irons all types of material without any problems.

Great iron, perfect for men.

published

Expensive compared with STD irons. You get what you pay for I guess. Fantastic iron, love it's features, no temp settings, iron adjusts automatically , auto switch off. Bit on the heavy side but easy to clean.

Would not buy again.

published

I find that often it takes absolutely ages to heat up and emit steam. It's brilliant once it's hot, and certainly works really well changing from one type of fabric to another, but since my clothes etc are mostly natural fibres I don't really need this feature, and won't buy it again because of the length of time it takes to heat up. I keep wondering whether there's an intermittent fault with mine. Not very happy with the option to have max steam either, this doesn't work well.

Purchased in for $180.

Design Flaw, handle breaks after few months of use.

published

I bought this iron looking at some very good reviews. It's more expensive than other comparative items.
It comes with a new technology that a user cannot set a temperature, it automatically handles it.

However, due to low temperature, users generally presses it harder and due to a design flaw that the handle doesn't have a support at back (see the pictures), the plastic handle breaks easily after few months of use.

Company doesn't cover this under warranty and it's a throwaway in few months.

Other than that, I found this good enough to use as a normal iron with some frustration with the temperature, nothing special.

I even wasted the money I paid for extended warranty for this.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $189.15.

Fabulous iron

published

Truly is a sensor iron that you don't need to set the temperature. Only thing I missed is the little clip on the end of the cord to secure it around the iron. Happily I was able to steal it from my Philips Easy Care that my partner dropped and broke the handle after many years of good service.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $199.

Terrible! Doesn't get hot enough!

published

I've had this iron replaced and BOTH irons don't get hot enough. DO NOT BUY!!
Didn't matter whether I was using IQ or Max setting it just couldn't iron out simple creases. A cheap supermarket iron I bought for temporary use was better than this iron.
The iron also spits out dirty water on your clean clothes. Not good enough.

Wasted my money

published

This iron is not good. I can clean it and then turn it on for ironing and it still spews dirty water onto my white clothes, so frustrating. Also it takes so very very long to reheat after being left for more than 5 minutes. I have successfully used Phillip's irons for quite a long time but wasted my money with this model.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $150.

Doesn't last long

published

Great iron when it worked. We are light ironers and it stopped working after 7 years with no damage occurring. My parents still have this iron and I purchased it after using theirs. The computer panel is the issue, it generates power whilst the plate stays cold.

Purchased in at Myer for $90.

Leaking

Appalling after sales service.

published

It’s a flimsy iron and when it broke I sent it in May to be repaired. Got in back in July and now it leaks ! I am frustrated with the service. I contacted the service team on the phone, mail and social media. Received standard responses. The apologies sound fake and scripted. It cost me about $ 160 to purchase frustration. I am done with this company. I got my self a $49 steam iron and it seems to do the job far beyond my expectations.

I bought this iron box and it is working fine. This is the first time I use the high-end iron box.
I was actually looking for Braun Texstyle 9, but Philips offers two years guarantee.
One thing I noted with the iron box is that it makes vibration while using. Any idea regarding this ?

Could that be the water going through water pump? It's a vibratory sound. Does it sound louder when water low & go away when water opped up?
