I had the same problem. I found the trigger button at You'll have to pry off the rubber grip, and unscrew one or two screws on the handle, bu the trigger inserts neatly into the space. Screw it back together, snap on the rubber grip and it will work like new. Below is the part number & price.

Watch out, the next thing that will go is the on/off switch. Once it starts getting difficult to turn the unit on or off, just plug and unplug it until you get the new part, or you will be stuck one day and need the iron and go to turn it on and it wont start.

The part is $20, and the same site has it available.

I imagine that it would be the water valve not closing, allowing water to continue to enter the steam chamber. I have no idea how to get into these to have a look.

First thing to try is descaling it. Most manuals are online, Google
make model manual

Cleaning a Laundry Iron
Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

I'm having a similar problem. I've used mine quite often a few years ago and went to use it recently and now no steam. I've taken my fcl-ss167 apart and there is a water filter inside the base. The water filter may be too full of calcium carbonate to pass water. The water filter is removable but I have not yet found one to replace it.

I would go online to the manufacturer's web site for the information.

I'm looking for a solution to why the thread cutter isn't working. It just pulls the thread into a knot and jams the bobbin case. I was hoping for an answer here but the answer had nothing to do with the question!
