Yes, if your electric cord was extremely hot to touch is not common. It's posing danger to your unit and to your entire electrical system that may cause fire. Please let a qualified electrician inspect and repair your unit. The unit thermal fuse may not functioning that automatically switch off or cut the electric power of your unit when it gets too hot. Thank you for asking.
Fill the iron with 50/50 water and vinegar and let it steam for as long as it will. This will clean out the iron thoroughly, the green light will stop flashing and it will go back to normal. Then remember to clean your iron on a regular basis. Mine did!! Found this solution on another site
You better open your tefal iron,so you can fix the problem.When open look for the contact bronze in color must them place in the center,use a sandpaper to clean the contacts,when already clean test it if its okey going to hot again if not turn the udjuster to adjust it is a screw liked.
Great answer from Jacquief above. To which I add try giving the base of the iron and its button, a very light tapping with a tack hammer (much smaller and lighter than a standard hammer) wrapped in a tea-towel. This can often break up the lime scale seal which has formed somewhere inside and is not responding to Jacquief's method. In future never use scale laden tap water in your iron, use $2 litre bottles of distilled water from any supermarket.
