Know When It's Time to Replace the Steamer

With proper care and maintenance, a quality garment steamer should provide many years of service. But occasionally it may need to be replaced if repairs are no longer feasible.

Signs It's Time for a New Steamer

  • No longer heats up properly
  • Takes too long to heat up
  • Leaks steam or water
  • Makes odd noises
  • Feeble or uneven steam

If your steamer exhibits any of these issues, even after descaling and cleaning, it likely means the internal components are wearing out.

When to Repair vs. Replace

  • Under warranty - contact manufacturer about repairs
  • Older model - replacement parts may be unavailable
  • Major issues - new steamer may be more cost effective
  • Minor issues - replacement gaskets, seals may help

Compare the cost of repairs versus the cost and hassle of purchasing a whole new steamer.

Buying a Replacement

  • Look for similar steam power and capacity
  • Consider new features and technology
  • Read reviews of current models
  • Choose reputable brands for safety

Investing in a new high-quality steamer is worth it if your old model is no longer functioning properly. Look for improved steam time, faster heat-up, and useful features in a new steamer.
