Per the owner manual, you shake the iron to "wake it back up".

The safety cycle initiates after it sits over 8 minutes on it's heel, or on it's sole plate or it's side side for more than 30 seconds. The light shoul dbe blinking when it is in the safety mode.

If you can't wake it up, then return it if it is still under new warranty.

TEFAL STEAM GENERATOR GV8460 NO STEAM IRON HEATS UP


The water is heated by a metal plate that is bolted to the metal water tank, operating in pretty much the same way as a domestic kettle, the plate being the element. The plate is fixed in place by 8 or so nuts onto studs that form part of the water tank and heated by passing electrical current into this plate. Over time the nuts come loose and consequently the plate is not in full contact with the water tank. This results in insufficient heat transfer and a failure to consistently reach the required temperature to create steam. Ultimately you will need to remove the plastic base of the unit to access the plate and re-tighten the nuts. You will need a small 6 star bit with the centre punched out to remove the base as it is secured with security screws. These are readily available on ebay as they are the same as those used to secure number plates.

Not heating up, flashing light


It sounds like you have a loose wire, check your plug to make sure the wire connections are sound. The loose connection may be where the wire enters the iron its self. For saftey I would have this repaired by a professional or have it replaced.

Not getting hot


The thermal cutoff device blew and must be replaced. It acts like a fuse when the iron gets too hot. Thay are very
cheap and it would be well worth replacing. Hope this was helpful.
