Why would an all-steam iron be giving off static electric shocks?

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.
