How to de-scale my Philips Steam iron?

IMPORTANT: Besides Quick Calc Release function, you should also perform calc-clean once every 1 month to prolong the life of your iron.

Note that:

If water in your area is very hard, or you see scales coming out from the soleplate during ironing, use this function more frequently.

Descaling process:

  1. Make sure the iron is unplugged and the steam slider is set to dry setting
  2. Fill the water tank to the MAX indication
    Do not pour vinegar or other descaling agents into the water tank.
  3. Plug in the iron and set the temperature dial to MAX
  4. Unplug the iron when the temperature light goes out
  5. Hold the iron over the sink. Keep pushing the calc clean button and gently shake the iron forth and back until all water in the water tank has been used up (fig. 1.)
    Scales is flushed out, steam and boiling water also come out of the soleplate.
    Note: Repeat steps 2 to 5 if the water that comes out of the iron still contains scale particles
  6. Take out the Quick Calc Release tray, empty the water in the tray. Hold the iron vertically to allow small amount of water to flow out (fig. 2.)
  7. Insert the tray back to the iron and lock it
  8. Plug in the iron and let the iron heat up to dry the soleplate
  9. Unplug the iron when the temperature indicator light goes out
  10. Move the iron gently over a piece of cloth to remove any water stains on the soleplate
