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.

Rowenta Advancer iron has been working for 2 years and now won't heat up. I have checked the cord and it is fine. The heat indicator light comes on but I don't measure any voltage going to the hot plate....

How to repair aan electrical iron


Hi,

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical chord, and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.

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 chord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat.
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the sole plate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the sole plate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

The tools you will need are

  • Screwdrivers
  • Toothpicks or pipe cleaners
  • Sewing needle
  • Commercial electric iron cleaning solution or vinegar and water
  • Commercial sole plate cleaner or baking soda and water
  • Steel wool
  • Emery cloth
Please rate my solution.

My singer magic press 4 iron comes on but the plate will not heat up. I turn it on one day and it just would not heat up.


Not sure how tech savvy you are, but the service manual can be downloaded at http://www.parts.singerco.com/CPpartCharts/Presses/MP4.pdf
UNPLUG THE IRON. Figure 7 shows the wiring. Note that the lamp inside the switch is shown incorrectly. It should be on the other side of the switch. Also the 2 wires running down to the fuse are the red wires. The red wires are interchangeable. Use a continuity tester between wire 2 and wire 3 to test the thermostat. Should be open when dial is turned to the left. Closed when dial turned to the right. Also check continuity on the heaters. If everything looks good but it still doesn't work, replace the circuit board.

Repair of Steam Iron


Hi, honestly if there is a short circuit to ground and you are trying to troubleshoot this, I would not advise you doing this (I do electronic tech/engineering everyday) and am uncomfortable doing it, as it is a shock hazard to continue using the device, especially if significant others are using the appliance. Unless I am SURE I can fix the problem AND I know how to test for circuit isolation as recommended by UL, CE and other safety governing bodies...i.e. "Know about HI POT and Leakage Testing techniques."

That said, since you have already dismantled and accessed the "guts", there is probably a fastener or moulded retainer you missed. Probably a good idea to try and locate a schematic or reverse engineer it, making sure you draw lots of assembly and disassembly diagrams as you go if you are so inclined

I just removed the two screws on the bottom of the cord winder and made the screws tight again, works like a charm.
