about 5yrs old & I can use tools& simple electrics
OK I have just had a look on the spares website for this model which is listed as obsolete with only two parts available. We can carry out the fault findling if you want but if we find that its a thermostat or soleplate that is faulty you may not be able to get a replacement and it may cost more than the value of the steam iron. Do you wish to proceed?
I understand completely take it to the recycle site & buy a new one.But I feel that the charge of £20.00 for telling me something from the Spares site which I had found for myself is exorbitant & not Knowledge based by an expert.
