How to dismantle a Tefal Aquaspeed 150
no, its not the Aquaspeed 170, but Aquaspeed 150.
i succeded to unwrap the housing, but did fail in disconnecting or dismounting the power cord terminal.i could not disassemble the Iron to reach the heater.
step 1 unscrew 3 visible screws.
step 2 lift the heel cover away, by unsnapping 1 hooks at the right and one at the left side of the heel cover. i used thumnbnail to deform the heel cover for not to wear out the snap-in hooks.
step 3 remove the dischalk stick (don't know the right wording in english)
step 4 lift the top cover (which covers the spray jet part), 2 hooks at both left and right, use thumbnail or flat screwdriver, start at the top hook.
step 5 take off the spray and steam buttons, 1 hook at the front side, 1 hook at the outer back side
step 6 take off 2 screws: one keeps the upper half of the handle, the other fixes the water container at the heater plate. Attention: when unmounting the container, and turning the iron upside down, a small (4mm diam, ~10 mm length) silicone cylinder part will fall out, some kind of actor of a bimetal thermo switch in the ground plate, which probably controls water flow (not the electric thermostate)
so far so good, i got my problem solved, but would like to know how to disassemble the container from the ground plate and how to replace the cable?
