Cleaning Your Jiffy Steamer



FOR MODELS J-1, J-2, J-200 & J-2000 Jiffy® STEAMERS

The cleaning procedure below is recommended as a regular maintenance measure to help your steamer maintain its maximum steaming performance. This maintenance should be performed on a basis of every 3-6 months depending on your water supply. In most cases, a steamer that is severely clogged will require disassembly to properly clean and prolong the life span of the unit. An authorized repair center or a Jiffy® Steamer service technician best performs this disassembly.


1. Unplug your steamer from the wall outlet. Remove hose attachment at the brass coupling using a wrench and remove water bottle from unit. Pour out any remaining water from your unit.

2. If the hose attachment is blocked by sediment build-up, flush your hose attachment by using a garden water hose. This should loosen and remove any build-up that may have occurred within the hose itself.

3. To clean the internal parts of your steamer, use of the Jiffy® Liquid Cleaner (10 ounce bottle) is recommended. This acid-based cleaner will remove hard water deposits and sediment build-up. This cleaner is not available for export.

4. Pour the cleaning solution into the water cup of your steamer. This is the location on the steamer base where you normally place the water bottle. Allow the cleaning solution to remain in the unit for 2-3 hours. DO NOT STEAM THE SOLUTION IN THE UNIT AS DAMAGE MAY OCCUR.

5. Pour the cleaning solution out of the steamer. Do this by tilting the steamer back and forth and pouring the solution out of the water cup area.

6. Rinse the unit thoroughly by flushing with fresh water 2-3 times.

7. If discolored water or residue continues to come from the unit, the above procedure may need to be repeated.
