Murphy Richards power steamelite about 5 year old

The fault suggests the boiler is no able to keep up with demand, typically this is associated where scale builds up in the boiler. I would perform a descale of the iron, should this not resolve the issue then a new boiler would be required.

Taking into account the age of the unit, its not likely to be an economical repair since the cost of a repair would be almost as much as a new iron.

It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you are happy for the question to be closed there is no need to reply (as this will reopen the question), however do let me know if you have any follow up questions.
