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.

No steam coming throwc


Normally when water is put inside steam irons, it get stored in tank then if thermostat knob is set for steam then water moves to bottom heated portion of iron. Water converts to steam as base plate is hot, heated steam comes out through perforated holes. If holes are blocked due to scale formation steam flow is blocked. The descaling has to be done as per instructions given on descaling wax manufacturer. sometimes if water does not enter through a rubber washer that is water tank to heated bottom portion then also steam will not get generated hence no steam. Please check above points and identify the problem.

Hi, i have a Bosch TDS2551GB steam generator iron. It needs descaling but I don't know how and there does not appear to be a descaling button. How do I proceed ?


Hi, Descaling is simply a process where the limestone that is deposited in any water cooking device is removed.
Have a look inside your electric kettle to see how much of a problem ypou have in your area.
If you have a serious problem & your kettle element is totally covered up with a whitish coating, I suggest you buy a can of commercial descaling agent.
If not, or iof you prefer home remedies, get a bottle of white vinegar.
Empty your kettle & pour a bit of vinegar onto the limestone. If it boils & foams, it is being dissolved. Replace the vinegar everytime it stops or slows down. Look at the results. You can speed it up by heating the kettle. Do not boil the kettle with vinegar. (Weak acid) Rather dilute it 50-50 I then boil. Or, just boi;l some water & throw it out. Then put the acid on. once you figuted out what process is suitable for getting rid of your areas's limestne, then applie your knowledge to your Bosh.
Just let the acid stand inside it overnight, or get more drastic if neccessary.

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'

Rowenta steam iron no longer steams


Your local grocery or hardware store will sell "descaler" for coffee pots and irons.

Mix as instructed (water/descaler) and pour the disolved mix into the iron. Set the iron on the highest steam settings (heat and steam volume). After it is hot, let it steam into the sink, pressing the steam button over and over to let the descaler work through all the tubes/passages, until it has all been pumped out.

Refill with more descaler (if it is not completely unplugged) and repeat until you are satisifed with how the iron is working.

After descaling, run clean water through it with the same process (but no descaler) several times.

Iron spitting out brown water


I'm afraid the brown water is rust if it is I would chuck the iron and buy a new one.

If it's just scale then mix "Lime Away" 50/50 with water pour it in the opening where you put the water in for steam, turn it on low and let it sit for a few hours, rinse it three or four times and then try the steam again.

HOW DO I DESCALE A STEAM GENERATOR IRON


Place the iron soleplate, unplugged of course, in a shallow dish of water and descaler and leave it for a while. I have just done this with mine and its working a treat.
