I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, so I know that shipping my iron to and from you for repair will be fairly expensive but what would I be looking at for parts and repair costs? The thermostat is fine but when I press the steam button, next to no steam comes out and if I have the iron turned off but forget to close the water bottle valve, water pours out of the iron as soon as I turn the iron power on.
Juanita, the solenoid probably needs to be replaced. It stays open and will not open and close when you activate the steam switch on and off. You can send your HYS-58 directly to Naomoto below. John

We are extremely happy with the Naomoto HYS-58 Iron. It's a little heavier than other, less expensive irons, but it has a sleeker design, is better weighted so it doesn't tip back, and it has a more effective heat shield. The iron also comes with a couple small tools, and instructions on how to troubleshoot and fix minor problems. This iron is highly recommendable!
