Question about Irons

1 Answer

I have a Morphy richards steam elite 42221 the problem is that the water light comes on even when the tank is up to max. If I turn the power on and off the generator works for a short time then the light comes back on and the steam wont come out. We cleaned and emptied the boiler and it worked for a few seconds. Is there a sensor or blockage problem and can this be repaired.

What did you use to clean your device ?
hard water can cause all sorts of troubles and this might be one of them, Yes anything can be fixed if you please
try strait vinegar in your unit, it will not damage and it works very well against hard water deposits that can cause problems like this, if this dose not work get back to me and we will try to find out what is the problem and make it right again

SOURCE: Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator doesn't.

OK... so I have fixed my problem of NO STEAM, just lots of water coming out of the iron press plate itself... I had already cleaned the boiler, so I tried adding 1/4 tsp - 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda to the water and flushing it through. From what came out of the iron press plate, I would say the problem was caused by a build up of goop (technical term) inside the iron. Once cleared, the iron is steaming away again. Please note, u will need to have an old towel handy if this is ur problem, 'cos until it starts getting better, there is a fair amount of water coming out of the iron press plate. Just add the bicarb to the water reserve and use the steam buttons to bring the bicarb through. Do not attempt to iron clothing with the bicarb in the water!!! Carolyn ;)

is there a noise when u press the trigger? if not there is sometimes a reset button on the front of the base. failing that the problem may well be the solenoid which opens to let the water into the steaming tank which is repairable but can be awkward.

The problem will be with the level switch in the tank.

I've checked for a service manual without any luck and checked all the spares sites I know and there's no reference to a replacement level switch.

How would you be for opening the base and checking for loose or broken connections?

Steam generation minimum morphy richards


If tap water is used in a hard water area limescale can soon build up and reduce water flow into the steam generator.
A propriety descaler might help but if the situation is too advanced it is unlikely.

Descale


Soak and/or run vinegar or CLR through it. They also make a steam iron cleaner.

Can't get my Morphy Richards steam generator off of standby


do this and use the common sense. God bless you
f the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber (see below). If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat (see the Appliance Controls Fix-It Guide).
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle (see below).
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water

We have a water filter and softened water. Our iron is clean and went after 2 months.
