Tefal Pro express steam iron will not stop steaming

Once it heats up it will not stop steaming. I have tested the microswitch in the handle and it is ok. Is the problem likely to be the electrical solenoid that the micro switch operates in the steam generator?

SOURCE: 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.

Plug iron in but its dead

follow the next steps and fix it. God bless you
If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord +thermical fuse with VOM . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat (

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 Express 1750 has water dripping from it when using steam

That means that water is not heated properly and does not produce steam.

Try a complete descaling, often this happens because the water reservoir and heating element is covered with scale.

Tefal Pro Express - Constant 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.

Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator Iron

Once you have filled up with water and always just below full line, if your model has one, you need to press the "reset" or "restart" button on the back end of the generator (the end furthest away from the water container). Also, do be sure to regularly descale as advised above otherwise the water/steam can't get through.
