SOURCE: I have a Tefal Pro express iron and I have water

There is a seal or a connection leaking. Take the iron apart -- you'll probably see where it's been leaking.

The steam is building up in the water tank but not going through to the iron.

I suspect that the discharge holes have become clogged by calcified deposites due to hard water. You need to de-calcify the iron. Mix one cup of white vinegar with one cup of water and pour this mixture in the iron and let it heat up. The acidic vinegar should dissolve the build up. repeat until clear. forthe final, use a little lemon in a cup of water to get rid of the vinegar smell. You can prevent this by using only distilled water in the iron, but this is not really practical, so a couple of clearing runs of the vinegar/water bath each month will put this off.

Hello, my Tefal Virtuose iron only gets slightly warm even on the highest setting..does it need replacing or can it be fixed? Thanks!

Yes,it can be fixed. however, if the fixing cost a little lower than buying a new one, it is best to buy one.

My Tefal Steam generator needs de-scaling i have the kit but I have lost the instructions

you can download new instructions from the web. Remove the anticalc cover at the side and unscrew the metal nut, take care to ensure the little rubber seal is still inside the nut and not stuck to the opening. Plug one end of the hose into the iron ( it will fit without moving as it can only go in one way) connect the other end to the tap, turn on the tap and watch it flush out all the build up. leave it flushing for a few minutes then turn off the water. personally I then empty all the water from the base and then put the nut and cover back on fill up the tank and iron.

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.

Hi, My Tefal Express Steam Iron is not working. The steam will not work and brown water is pouring out the bottom of the iron. I need to know where I should get this repaired in Inner West...

Do you use any additive to the water when you iron?
Do you empty the water out after use ?
Brown steam / water suggests foul water, or rust due to dirty water pipes on Iron.

With regards to 'not working' - do you have any lights on, or is it dead.
(I had one of these, the mains lead within the flex holder had broken - design flaw) - managed to repair.
