Head of my Philips Stand Garment Steamer drips water

If the head of your Philips stand garment steamer drips water, there may be various possible causes. Find out how to resolve this here.

The head and/or hose is in a horizontal position

When your hose is in a horizontal position, there might be condensation in it that cannot flow back into the water tank, and this might cause the head to drip water.

Please lift the head of your stand steamer up in order to allow condensation to flow back into the tank.

The hose is forming a U shape

When the hose forms a U-shape, condensation in the hose cannot flow back into the water tank, and this can cause the head of the steamer to drip water.

Please straighten the hose and lift the head of your stand steamer up so condensation can flow back into the tank.

Heavy usage

Note: This only applies to Philips steamers with AirStretch technology (these steamers have a grill in the head as shown in the image below).

If you have been using your stand steamer heavily for a long time, water condensation may occur. When this happens, water will drip from the head.

To solve this, first let your steamer cool down. Then, remove the grille and press a dry cloth against the black surface to remove the condensed water.
