Philips steam iron repairs

Post by tamada » June 14, 2018, 7:54 pm

Three year-old appliance that used to get regular de-scaling but that may have lapsed since our return to Udon. Anyway, the first reported symptoms were 'no steam' and then apparently it wasn't used for a few days. When I got around to checking it, it's not even heating and the de-scale program won't run. Going by Philips rather limited FAQ's online, the flashing light and no pump running indicates that the machine needs a 'pump reset' which is a simple power cycle... not making any difference this time unfortunately.There's a fair bit of gadgetry on small circuit boards inside the handle so reckon it needs a real tech.

So does anyone know of a good appliance repair shop in Udon? I know that Amorn underneath Big C has a repair shop but TBH, I have managed where their guys have failed before so looking for better, faster alternatives.

We’ve had a few problems with electrical bits lately and we’ve found that going to the manufacturers contact centres has been the best solution and to be fair quite inexpensive, might be worth a go.

Did some price checking yesterday and yes, they are only about £100.
