Dismantling a Tefal program 8 400

I have a Tefal program 8 400 with heating issues. After being left in storage for a while, it works fine, but after some use, the heater cuts out at progressively lower temperatures until it won't turn on at all (the relay clicks twice when you connect power).

I'd like to get inside to fix the problem (I'm an electrical engineer, it shouldn't be too hard :oP ), but to get inside the case without marring it, I need to know where the clips are - I have the three base screws off, but that's as far as I can get without a better idea of how the shell is held together, without

Hi,

Did you ever work out how to get the casing off??

I managed to drop my iron on a dodgy angle and some of the plastic casing has popped out and I don't want to force it back in when it clearly needs to be opened and put together again in the correct alignment.

If you know how to open it past the 3 screws, please tell....Thanks

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord +thermical fuse with VOM . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat (

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.

Red light on


Per the owner manual, you shake the iron to "wake it back up".

The safety cycle initiates after it sits over 8 minutes on it's heel, or on it's sole plate or it's side side for more than 30 seconds. The light shoul dbe blinking when it is in the safety mode.

If you can't wake it up, then return it if it is still under new warranty.

How to dismantle a Tefal Aquaspeed 150


no, its not the Aquaspeed 170, but Aquaspeed 150. i succeded to unwrap the housing, but did fail in disconnecting or dismounting the power cord terminal.i could not disassemble the Iron to reach the heater. to dismantle, step 1 unscrew 3 visible screws. step 2 lift the heel cover away, by unsnapping 1 hooks at the right and one at the left side of the heel cover. i used thumnbnail to deform the heel cover for not to wear out the snap-in hooks. step 3 remove the dischalk stick (don't know the right wording in english) step 4 lift the top cover (which covers the spray jet part), 2 hooks at both left and right, use thumbnail or flat screwdriver, start at the top hook. step 5 take off the spray and steam buttons, 1 hook at the front side, 1 hook at the outer back side step 6 take off 2 screws: one keeps the upper half of the handle, the other fixes the water container at the heater plate. Attention: when unmounting the container, and turning the iron upside down, a small (4mm diam, ~10 mm length) silicone cylinder part will fall out, some kind of actor of a bimetal thermo switch in the ground plate, which probably controls water flow (not the electric thermostate) so far so good, i got my problem solved, but would like to know how to disassemble the container from the ground plate and how to replace the cable?
