Tefal Pro Express - Constant Steam

I have a Tefal Pro Express, and the steam will not switch off. Normally you have to depress the button on the grip to produce steam, but the steam is constant, running thro water quickly and steaming up the kitchen. Any ideas?

Thanks

    I have the same problem, my Tefal pro express constantly gives out steam. It's as if the steam button is stuck but it isn't.

    Thank you Jacquief..that worked..patience is needed and the solenoid will release..and though it takes some time for the vinegar smell to go...the extra work is worth it.. Many thanks

    Water in iron appears to be getting too hot and boiling up producing far too much steam.

Found this on another site and just tried it. Put 50/50 water and vinegar in the tank and leave it to go through on the constant steam. Give it about 5 minutes then try the button. Mine gave an extra spurt of steam at this point but still continued giving steam out all the time. I refilled with the water vinegar mix and just kept pressing the steam button and letting it go through. Eventually it fixed it and the constant steam stopped. Something to do with a piece of limescale blocking the solenoid but that's all Greek to me! Hope this helps. Kind regards.

    Pleasure! Glad to have been of help. At least it will save a few quid when times are tight! I still have the smell of vinegar though! We all smell like we live in a fish and chip shop LOL!

I have a tefal pro express turbo GV8150 and there is constant team coming from iron without me touching the steam button. Can anyone help with a diagnosis and or possible fix?


constant steam means the control valve is not working
descaling may fix the problem
the other fix is a new iron as the cost to repair is generally more that a replacement price

Continuous steam and green light flashing on my tefal steam generator iron.


I found this on a site and it works!! Put 50/50 mix of water and viniger in your iron, let it run, after a while start pressing the steam button, you may have to do this a few times, but it will eventually stop the light flashing, then the steam function will return to normal. You'll need to clean the iron out a few times afterwards

Tefal Pro Express - Constant Steam (Model 2932)


Great answer from Jacquief above. To which I add try giving the base of the iron and its button, a very light tapping with a tack hammer (much smaller and lighter than a standard hammer) wrapped in a tea-towel. This can often break up the lime scale seal which has formed somewhere inside and is not responding to Jacquief's method. In future never use scale laden tap water in your iron, use $2 litre bottles of distilled water from any supermarket.
