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 ;)

SOURCE: 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.

How to open this rinse boiler for tefal pro express 2929 iron


Hello there. Place a coin in the groove running along the centre of the plug and twist it, or lie the end of a screwdriver into the groove and twist it. If the plug still will not move then it is jammed in with scale.
Please see below how I solved the plug problem when it was being held down and was immoveable due to scale.
NOTE: In future always use $2.00 litre bottles of distilled water from supermarkets in your iron, never use scale laden tap water.

Tefal pro express steam generator iron I need to drain '& clean the boiler but the boiler drain plug is seized I can't loosen it
Use a small tack hammer (its head covered with a cloth) they have a far smaller and lighter head than a standard hammer. Tap all around the edge of the plug and in the middle. My thinking is that the plug is in the grip of scale. The tapping loosens it and it falls off. This worked for me.
Also tap the end of a tiny screwdriver like watchmakers use, or the head of a fine tip kitchen skewer around the perimeter edge of the plug, go gently around twice, plus the other tapping and it breaks the seal formed by scale which is holding the plug down.
Next, fill and rinse the boiler out up to 6 times to get rid of all the sediment and the rinse water runs 100% clean. Always use distilled water from supermarket from now on (litre less than $3.00). No more scale, no more cleaning. WARNING: Make sure boiler is totally water free after final rinse- out. Refill water container on the actual iron itself with distilled water from now on.
Please let us all know if this worked for you and if my post was helpful. Good luck with it, Chris.

The boiler drain plug is seized can't loosen it


In another post I suggested that you may need to press a "restart" or "reset" button on the back of the generator mine is a small yellow one. Fill up the water tank to just below fill line and then press the "restart" button which is way up the other end of the machine - at the back end. I just hope your model has this button. Good luck.

Tefal express iron cleaning


Thankfully I was able to clean the boiler compartment, by unscrewing the large bolt on the boiler, cleaned with water only, loads of brown yuck came out, It would then not allow me to use the steamer, Waited until the next morning tried again and working brilliantly again.
