The red Calc-Clean light of my Philips Steam Iron keeps blinking

Published on 29 November 2023
If your Philips Steam Iron or Steam Generator beeps or the red/orange Calc-Clean or Decalc light flashes, find our troubleshooting advice below to solve this.
When the Calc-Clean or Decalc light of your Philips Steam Iron or Steam Generator is blinking as in the image below, it is time to descale it.

If the alert remains, this means that the descaling process is not performed properly.  Please click here to follow the descaling steps on the website.

After performing all these steps if the descaling alert continues to blink,  please contact Philips Consumer Care.

When descaling your Philips Steam Generator, it might happen that the descaling routine is not fully completed and so the reset was not done successfully.

Please descale your appliance again and ensure the process is completed. When the descaling routine is completed, your steam generator will reset, and the descaling light will switch off automatically (Easy De-Calc function).

If the issue remains or you have any questions, please always feel free to contact Philips Consumer Care.
