Water hose on steam generator iron is leaking

I have a White Brand Steam Generator Iron that is several years old. The water hose is leaking and I get puddles of water on the floor. Where can I get another hose or take it to be repaired? If I can get the hose I can make the repair myself. If no parts available any suggestion to fabricate a repair?

This may happen if the Calc Clean tank has not been emptied after the previous Auto Calc Clean process. Water used to clean the steam generator ends up in this tank that is located next to the water tank used for steam ironing. Always empty the Calc Clean tank when the red Calc Clean tank light flashes after the Auto Calc Clean process
Water may leak from the water tank when you have not attached the water tank properly to the steam generator. Push the water tank onto the steam generator until you hear a click.
question:--------Why do water droplets come out of the soleplate of the iron during ironing?
Condensation in hose
When you start steam ironing and when you continue steam ironing after an interruption, the steam that was still present in the supply hose has cooled down and condensed into water. This causes water droplets to come out of the soleplate. When you start steam ironing or when you continue steam ironing after an interruption, hold the iron over an old cloth and press the steam trigger until steam instead of water comes out of the soleplate. When this happens, the iron is ready for steam ironing.
Steam boost button used
Perhaps you pressed the steam boost button on top of the handle during steam ironing or just after switching on the appliance, while the temperature dial is set to a setting below 3 dots. Only use the steam trigger under the handle for regular steam ironing. When you wish to use the steam boost function, set the temperature dial between 3 dots and MAX and wait a few seconds for the appliance to heat up. This should prevent water droplets from ending up on the garments you are ironing.
Additives
Additives or ironing aids cause water leakage during ironing. Do not put any additives or ironing aids in the water tank. Make sure you only put tap water or distilled water in the water tank.
Iron not hot enough
The iron is perhaps not hot enough for steam ironing. Select a temperature of 2 dots for ironing at a low steam setting. For steam ironing at a higher setting, select a temperature setting of 3 dots or higher . If a garment needs to be ironed at a temperature below 2 dots, do not press the steam trigger during ironing.
question:-----------Water leaks out of the soleplate of the iron when I press the steam boost button. What is wrong with the appliance?
You have probably pressed the steam boost button while the iron was set to a temperature below 3 dots. Set the temperature dial between 3 dots and MAX and allow the iron to heat up to this temperature. When the iron has reached the set temperature, you can use the steam boost function.

The iron has been all descaled, however we cannot get any steam when pressing the button. It is a Tefal express generator model 3 years old.


Once you have descaled the boiler and refilled your frontpiece of the iron itself (hopefully with distilled water - any supermarket) you press the "reset"/ "restart" button on the back end of the steam generating unit. When the water is hot enough press steam button & turbo button a few times - WARNING: make sure iron is facing downwards and cover ironing board with old rag because initially brown steam splatter will come out on first few steam releases.

Steam irons can become clogged with mineral deposits. Use distilled water in the iron to minimize these deposits.
To clean the iron , use 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. pour in iron and place iron on steam. The iron may require a few cleanings.

I have a hinari steam generator iron and the steam has stopped coming through the iron and now coming through the base that the iron stands on!can anyone help please


Check the water reservoir of the steam generator and look for some hairline cracks. Also a clogged tubing will likely to go back water on reservoir inlet water pouring. Once you found the cracks, seal it with epoxy just enough to fill the cracks.
Thanks for asking.

Try holding the iron well below the base with the cord straight and pressing the steam button, this will release any airlock caused by a changing the filter

Maybe the cap is coated with mineral deposits. Do you use ONLY DISTILLED WATER in the iron? If not, minerals from the water could be the cause. Try pouring some CLR or a similar product over the cap and see if that frees it up . If it does, pour some CLR into the iron's tank, and set it to the highest temperature setting. Run the iron over an old towel to help clean the steam vents. Then fill the tank with DISTILLED WATER and do the same proceedure two more times using DISTILLED WATER ONLY to flush out any remining CLR.

Tefal proline express steam generator iron needs de scaling


Make a solution of half water and half white vinegar. Fill up your iron and get it good and hot then let it sit a couple hours. flush out and repeat as necessary. Hope you find this helpful. Please give me a fixya rating If this works for you. It works very well as long as it is not completely filled with scale. Once you have it good and clean By a gallon of bottled water at the market and use that for your Iron and you will never have a scale problem again. I learned how to do this 20 years ago from a 80 year old woman from england. If it is really bad you can up the vinegar concentration but do not go higher than 2 cup to 1.
