Inside the iron's handle the thumb switch steam trigger broke. It has a thin plastic lever pressing upon a micro-switch; I super-glued the broken lever back and hope it would hold for a while longer. This lever, which clicks hundreds of times each ironing session, should be thicker, or metal.
The iron's inner thermostat started to interrupt randomly - not heating the iron. I had to open it up, which is a complex task, and clean the contacts with a small file. This is really poor quality thermostat. I never had this problem with cheap irons, or any irons. I assume that the Swiss factory did not account for the fact that half the Voltage in US means twice the current, and they used their standard European 240 Volts thermostat for their American version. Their European models probably last longer.
Finally, the steamer in the lower part stopped working and the iron became unusable. Torx T15 opens the back cover. Inside I discovered a whole lot of overheated, browned or blackened, push-on connectors. Here is a basic math: 1200 Watts in Europe (240 Volt) draws only 5 Amps, and the same 1200 Watts in US (120 Volt) draws 10 Amps = TWICE the current, thus all connectors must be TWICE as beefy. Or else, they will overheat.
It appears that the overheating connectors (not overheating steam!) tripped thermal protection on the hot tank. The protection can be reset with a paper clip wire, which is what I did. I removed all push-on connectors and squeezed them gently with pliers to create a more tight connection: with less resistance = less heat.
I got the iron to work again --- for the time being.
It is a great, overpriced ironing system that does not last long enough to pay for itself - therefore my two stars. I'd recommend similar steam ironing system by Rowenta at a fraction of the cost.
I attached a few pictures showing inside the steamer.
I did hear the company was bought so maybe it isn't made as well. If you get one make sure you flush it out frequently.
Only downside is my adult daughter brings me her ironing
