It probably is, 8460 is likely a newer style with few more bells and whistles..like the anti calc..I'd make sure whom ever you buy it from (the 8360) they will take it back if not correct.

SOURCE: leaky water from sole plate

Open up iron, see if hose connected to tank came off. If you dropped iron a few to many times you could have cracked tank. Open up and you will see problem.

SOURCE: sole plate leaking

This IS a steam iron? The iron must be hot for the steam to form. If it's not hot enough, the water is leaking thru the steam holes. Also if the channels are calsified (boiler stone has formed into the steam channels) this may happen.

SOURCE: as the steam builds up it constantly comes out of the the blow off pressure valve under the iron. steam will come out of the sole plate when the button is pressed

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Clean an iron:

  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

There is something definitely wrong with the mechanism and seal. The lamp might have been affected likewise. I think you need to replace your iron. If you can, you can try to repair it but the parts are hard to come by. Specially the silicone o ring.

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.

Red light on


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.
