The irons are tested by the manufacturer and will often still be wet. They are wrapped in plastic for this reason.

A:
The Kyoto features a double hose nipple with mesh strainer, a thicker more ergonomic handle. Both will have a thicker thumb lever. The clearance space between the inlet valve and the handle has also been widened, to allow the presser more room to grip the handle (on both irons).

Is an all steam iron as effective as an electric-steam iron to use it for touch-up laundry shirts?

A:
The all steam irons will give 80 psi of steam and is very good at touching up shirts. Steam electric irons also have a heating element and thermostat so you will get a powerful steam at an even higher temperature.

What is the best material to produce the base plate of the steam iron?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
Most all-steam irons will come with a nickel coated base plate or a non-stick sole. The nickel coated base plates tend to be easier to clean with standard iron cleaners. The non-stick sole plates are not as easy to clean because you don’t want to scratch the coating off the non-stick. The nice thing about the non-stick coating is that it tends to glide across the garments a little better. Because it glides, you do not need an iron shoe. Iron shoes tend to bring down the temperature of the iron base.

What is the best steam trap to use with my iron?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
All steam irons are most likely stationed next to a press which already had a bucket trap in line. If you are finding that the bucket trap for the unit is not sufficient and water is coming out of the iron, we recommend the 1/4" disc trap (STE-5). They can be attached directly to the exhaust valve of the iron or to the end of the hose going into the return line.

Can you sand a burr off the bottom of an all steam iron?
Anonymous

Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
Our irons are made of a stainless steel so it would be vary hard to sand. A special grinder would have to be used. However, as long as the presser used and iron shoe- it shouldn’t be a problem. A burr on an iron would normally occur if an iron was dropped.

Is there an adjustment that can be made to keep the exhaust valves on all steam irons from leaking steam prematurely?

A:
The gaskets will go bad eventually. However, there is a simple adjustment that can be made to prolong the life. Tightening the spindle nut underneath the black knob will eliminate the space in the gaskets, creating less room for the steam to escape from.

Are All-Steam Irons interchangeable?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
If a you have an all- steam iron set up, whether its a Cissell, Naomoto, Kyoto, Ace-Hi, Sapporo, you can always replace it with any other all steam iron. For example, if you have a Cissell All steam iron- and you are thinking of switching to a Kyoto iron- you CAN do that. The only things that you may want to consider- is upon installation, you might need a different iron shoe. Also there may be some possible differences with the fittings or adapters. Most of the irons we carry come with hoses that will hook up directly to the iron, however, because all dry cleaners may be using different sized pipe threads to hook the irons up, you may need to purchase the correct adapters to use in their system. Any hardware store should have these parts.

Can a bad check valve give water problems to your all-steam iron?

A:
Yes, if you are experiencing water problems and have decided to check your steam trap, you should also check the check valve that is located after it. If the check valve is not working it could cause the steam trap to malfunction as well as the iron or piece of equipment it is draining.

An iron shoe diffuser can be used in conjunction with the iron shoe to diffuse the steam better. Or the operator may want to try turning the nut at the base of thumb lever to the right- so that less steam is allowed to come out of the iron.

How do you keep water from leaking out of the all steam irons in the morning?
Anonymous

Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
After turning on the boiler in the morning, you will want to open the exhaust valve of the iron fully. Wait until the iron gets warm enough for the new steam to push the excess water out of the exhaust valve. Push down on the push lever, away from any garments to get rid of any additional water.

I’ve tried the troubleshooting recommended for my all steam iron, but I’m still getting water? Is there anything else I’m missing?
Anonymous

A:
One thing we may have forgotten to mention is that the exhaust knob should be open. It’s an obvious thing to overlook, but nonetheless, it should be inspected to ensure that it is open and there is no blockage in the valve as well. If this particular station has always been a problem, it’s possible that the station is located too far from the boiler and thus the iron is not getting the quality of steam that it should be.

When investigating a water issue on an all steam iron, should the return hose on the iron, once disconnected from the return line be giving off any steam?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
You will tend to see water with possibly a lot of steam, as the steam that is coming out of this hose is a wet steam, thus more visible to the human eye. Continue to adjust the exhaust valve a bit, while pressing down on the thumb switch of the iron. If a dry steam can be obtained from the iron, with out any water coming out of it, you can rule out the return line as being the culprit for the water issues.

Try tightening the hose nipple down. If that doesn’t solve the problem, inspect the copper washer near the base of the nipple fitting. If the copper washer is in bad shape, replace. If the copper washer is not available, remove and wrap the threaded portions of the hose nipple with Teflon tape.

Why would an all-steam iron be giving off static electric shocks?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
All-steam irons do not have any electricity connected to them. They are run solely be steam. If there is a problem with the iron conducting static electricity it is most likely due to the fact that there is something inside the plant which is not grounded properly. The electricity is trying to reach the ground and is going through the iron, through the presser, and to the ground. Ways to fix this problem would be to use an iron rest when the iron is not in use, and to use a rubber mat under the presser’s feet. In the mean time the plant should be checked to make sure that all items inside the plant are grounded properly.

A:
If you have connected this iron to an older boiler, the boiler should be resting on a metal table for this very reason (manufacturers recommendation).

Can you and should you use a steam hose that is longer than 7ft. long with an all-steam iron?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
We only carry the 7ft. hoses, even though larger lengths may be offered elsewhere. Originally the manufacturers of the all-steam iron had a hose that was 7 ¼’ because their iron is supposed to be as close as possible to its steam source. As the hoses get further away from the supply line, there is a greater chance for water problems in the iron.

Why does water leak from my all steam iron?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
There are a few reasons why this might happen. The following are some trouble shooting suggestions: 1) Check to make sure that the small nut at the top of the rocker (or base of thumb lever) isn’t too tight. Loosen this nut slightly while the iron is hot- pushing the thumb lever periodically till the steam flow is sufficient. 2) Make sure that the steam supply and steam return hoses have not been reversed. 3) Make sure there is no water coming through the steam supply line. This line should only have steam – If water is in the line- it will leak though the bottom of the iron. 4) Make sure the return line is working properly. Keep steam supply hose connected, but disconnect steam return hose. Let the return hose fall into pail to collect any water. Press down on thumb switch. A) If iron is giving off a dry steam- then the problem lies in the return line. Check the steam traps and check valve. B)If iron isn’t giving off any steam- check the steam inlet fitting of iron for dirt. If inlet is clogged, steam cannot pass though. The inlet must be cleaned 5) There may be a steam trap problem. Is a thermodynamic trap being used? The thermodynamic trap allows condensate and steam to continually flow. A good thermodynamic trap virtually eliminates any water problems. These traps however should be used with a strainer as they have a tendency to clog. 6) Make sure that the exhaust valve is open- and will allow any water to leave back into the return line. 7) When operating the iron, follow these instructions: A) Turn on the steam source B) With iron cold, open the return/ exhaust valve (on back of iron) completely C)When the iron is hot, close the return valve completely and reopen it about 1/8th of a turn. A vacuum is then created which draws moisture into the return line.

A:
First make sure that the steam supply was turned on. If the steam supply was turned on and the iron is still not getting hot, the steam trap may not be functioning properly. Try tapping on the trap to dislodge any dirt or debris that may have caused the trap to stay shut.

How do you adjust the steam flow on an all steam iron?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
At the base of the thumb switch is a nut and a metal adjustment screw. Remove the nut, and adjust the metal adjustment screw. Turning the adjustment screw to the right will decrease the steam flow. Turning the adjustment screw to the left will increase the steam flow. After the steam flow is sufficient, replace the plastic nut.
