My tefal keeps tripping elcb in fuse board what could be wrong

Next time it happens and it trips.. use a dry towel to unplug kettle, just in case.

Is the base wet? Check the kettle for cracks. Check the cable. Is it damaged? Try replacing the fuse in the plug. Is the steam that the kettle produces affecting lighting or other electrical items around it? Try moving the kettle to a different location.

My steampress 660 is has black stuff coming out

Hi Beverly. The "dried stuff" is scale which occurs naturally in tap water. You should always use DISTILLED water - buy litre bottles (approx.$2.ea Home Brand) all supermarkets. Electricity off, empty out all the water in your iron. Half fill with distilled water, cover the filling hole, and shake water inside iron side to side, up and down, vigorously, empty distilled water out and watch carefully to see if water runs clear or has sediment coming out - may need to repeat this action. When water runs clear re-fill iron as normal with distilled water. Put iron on lowest STEAM setting, LIFT up iron but with soleplate facing down onto an old rag/towel (brown water may come out) press steam button on & off to try & clear the holes. Turn iron off, allow to cool. Thick cloth wipe soleplate over getting into the holes if they have not cleared. Triple wrap a wooden skewer in cloth soaked in white viegar or "scale remover" and circulate it around the blocked holes. Go very carefully do not scratch the coating on the soleplate or holes - very important. Let us all know how this goes please and if I have been of help, do hope so. Good luck, Chris

I have an older model and it is not shooting steam like it did when it was new. I have tried to contact a Rowenta repair center without any luck. Is it ok to use a deposit remover in just the tank if I...

Frankly, I never use or "need" to use deposit removers (vinegar or CLR) just because I only use filtered water in the tank and use all the water until the unit is totally dry, using the blast of steam to clear out as much as possible. I remove the blue reservoir entirely, wait for the iron to be totally cool to the touch, open up the trim knob and sloted metal screw with a penny and shake out the rest of the water as much as possible. I leave the whole works to dry overnight or longer and only then do we pack it back up for storate. Just my way, don't like putting acids or salts into any metal tank for safety reason.

Iron is not heating. Tried shaking it. It will start to heat then turns off. It is onlt a few monthe old.

If shaking it does anything, you should not use it. It clearly has an internal problem that could lead to shock or a fire. Even if you are not under warranty, most manufacturers will replace a unit with a serious fault that can lead to liability. You should contact the manufacturer directly. They will be very helpful.

I have a Rowenta Pro. Iron, model DE-86.1A with auto shut-off. It sticks on auto shut-off. I have to move it around for it to heat up, as indicated by the sensor light on the top.

I believe that is how the safety feature works.

Once the iron detects no movement for a certain period of time (the iron assumes you have finished ironing) the iron will shut of the heating element.

One you have moved it around, the timer should prevent it from auto shutting down for a period of time.

How to use the calc-clean button

Calc-Clean function
The Calc-Clean function removes scale and impurities.

To do so, set the steam control to position '0', set the temperature dial to 'MAX', and fill water tank up to the 'MAX' level. Then heat up the iron until the pilot light on the handgrip goes out.

Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and hold the iron horizontally over the sink. Then press and hold down the 'CALC CLEAN' button.

Move the iron forwards and backwards while boiling water/steam squirt from the holes in the soleplate to wash away impurities/scales.

When the water tank is empty, heat up the iron to dry it.

Finally move the iron to and fro on a piece of cloth to dry the soleplate. Repeat the process if necessary

Philips Azure self-cleaning steam iron

philips do not have a manual for this iron online, sorry contact them if you want; The best way to clean these irons is with neat vinegar - try to get white vinegar and you have less smell to get rid of - fill the iron, give it a good shake and leave it overnight, then use the iron as normal (use it on a kitchen drying up towel or similar) then leave it for another few hours/overnight and then empty out any remaining vinegar and rinse through with water a couple of times. this normally solves any problems caused by limescale - if not then just leave the iron a little longer with the vinegar, also try to pour a little vinegar into the steam vent holes with the iron upturned and leave for a while. Hope this helps :)
