SOURCE: Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator Iron

Irons are generally not worth repairing. That said, try to clean out any mineral deposits with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water. Put in the usual amount. Warm the iron, try to get steam. Empty the iron and do it twice more. Then, rinse it out with plain water.

You may get lucky!

SOURCE: tefal steam iron not heating up properly

That is probably because the contacts to the element at the base of the iron are broken.

To disassemble you have to remove the casing, then remove the steam pump at front top of iron and then undo the safety screw mounted on the front of the base plate.

SOURCE: The iron heats up, but when the steam generator

Chemicals and minerals in the water have probably clogged the vents. Empty the water. Pour 1/2 cup WHITE vinegar into the reservoir. Turn on your iron and let it heat. Then press the steam generator button several times until the vinegar is gone. Unplug the iron. As it is cooling, take acotton swab and gently wipe the surface of the vents. You can probe GENTLY with the swab, but don't push it into the vent or the cotton head may get stuck.
As you're pressing the steam button, keep the iron in the ironing position, not standing. If the vinegar just will not come out of the vents, use a wooden toothpick to loosen the build up.
This always works well for me and I hope it does for you.
If so, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

The iron has been all descaled, however we cannot get any steam when pressing the button. It is a Tefal express generator model 3 years old.


Once you have descaled the boiler and refilled your frontpiece of the iron itself (hopefully with distilled water - any supermarket) you press the "reset"/ "restart" button on the back end of the steam generating unit. When the water is hot enough press steam button & turbo button a few times - WARNING: make sure iron is facing downwards and cover ironing board with old rag because initially brown steam splatter will come out on first few steam releases.

Tefal Express 1750 has water dripping from it when using steam


That means that water is not heated properly and does not produce steam.

Try a complete descaling, often this happens because the water reservoir and heating element is covered with scale.

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 ;)
