Tefal Quick Cup not heating water

Hi. Only had this gadget for a month, and it has been brilliant. But, this morning, when I used it, the water came out cold. Have emptied it and turned it off then on again but still the same. Any ideas?

Press the hot button on off 5 times and on the 6th let it run a cup full. This will re set the temperature

That is either becaus of a lose contact, or because of a faulty element.

The unit should have one year factory warranty, call Tefal and have the product replaced, see:Contact us - Consumer Service - Tefal.Com .

How to fix kettle thats boiled milk ?


Just fill it up with water and boil, then empty and repeat a few times, or put in equal amounts of white vinegar and water and leave it to soak overnight. Just make sure you rinse it really well in the morning

How to descale tefal express boil


I was searching for this solution then I found the manual in a draw so to help anyone else with the same problem the method is:
Descaling should be carried out every 3 months.
Fill the appliance to max. Dispense maximum size cup to a large cup.
Add descaler to the cup then pour back into appliance.
Dispense the mixture in the appliance into the cup and disgard.
Continue until applance is at minimum water level.
Empty the appliance then refill with water and run it through the machine and disgard until its at minimum then empty the appliance again.
It should be ready for use. You can use 1ltr white (and only white) vinegar instead of the descaler and water mixture.

    Kettle gets heavy white residue on inside after a couple uses. we do not ever let it stand with water inside.


    Cheapest fix is to use white vinegar to disolve the building up of limestone hardness in your water. I am certain that you find it difficult to get soap to lather well, you have a bathtub ring every time you take a bath, your towels and sheets are stiff and scratchy and your lower legs itch terribly especially in the winter. You have very hard water and you need a water softener. Find a Certified Water Specialist in your Yellow Pages.

    How to descale Philips HD 4651/C Electric Water Kettle


    Not having received any solution message from FIXYA contributors, I consulted with a family member
    and also my long held Time-Life Books, Fix It Yourself Library, Volume: Cleaning & Stain Removal,
    ISBN: 0-8094-7400-X, Copyright 1990. My issue was resolved by using white vinegar and soaking the internal problem area for 30 minutes. The appliance has cleaned up like new and works fantastic. I apologize for bothering you.

    Tefal Quick Cup


    As you are getting a light, then the fuse/ supply is ok .

    Does it have water in it?
    If not, it may be a safety cut out sensing this - and turning off.

    Check the manual for any mention of a "thermostatic trip" This may be user-resettable by means of a rod or button underneath, or may need to cool down - you may even hear a click when it does.

    If not - then it is likely to be a manufacturing fault within the heating element.
    You should be able to return it to the shop you bought it from for a full refund.
