Question about Tefal Ultraglide 1549 Iron

2 Answers

Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator doesn't.

I have a Tefal Pro Express steam generator (model 2929) which no longer generates steam.

When I switch it on from cold, it used to operate the pump to transfer water from the water tank to the boiler. If there was no water in the tank available to be pumped into the boiler, the heater would switch off and the red light would come on to say it needed to be refilled. Now, however, I don't hear the pump running and the boiler and iron heat up despite there being no water in the tank.

What would cause this problem and how easy is it to repair?

Please note, although I have selected this as a

    Please note, although I have selected this as a Tefal UltraGlide, it is actually a Pro Express Steam Generator.

    I have a Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator, it has been working fine for a year but I rinsed out the boiler last week and now it doesn't appear to make any steam, I have made sure the water tank is correctly in place.

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 ;)

Hi

I noticed the same problem a few weeks ago. Discovered that the water container needs to be pushed down more tightly than previously.

SOURCE: tefal proline express steam generator iron needs de scaling

Make a solution of half water and half white vinegar. Fill up your iron and get it good and hot then let it sit a couple hours. flush out and repeat as necessary. Hope you find this helpful. Please give me a fixya rating If this works for you. It works very well as long as it is not completely filled with scale. Once you have it good and clean By a gallon of bottled water at the market and use that for your Iron and you will never have a scale problem again. I learned how to do this 20 years ago from a 80 year old woman from england. If it is really bad you can up the vinegar concentration but do not go higher than 2 cup to 1.

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 Pro Express Steam Generator Iron


Once you have filled up with water and always just below full line, if your model has one, you need to press the "reset" or "restart" button on the back end of the generator (the end furthest away from the water container). Also, do be sure to regularly descale as advised above otherwise the water/steam can't get through.
