The thermal cutoff device blew and must be replaced. It acts like a fuse when the iron gets too hot. Thay are very
cheap and it would be well worth replacing. Hope this was helpful.

    can u give me the type of thermal fuse of the steam press?

    I had to solve the same problem on Tefal Program 8 500/FV9250. I was told in the Tefal service to buy a complete new heating plate. The thermal fuse (tiny pewter rolling-pin) is not delivered separately. New plate cost about 35€. The cheap Tefal iron with two year warranty time is for less then 40€. I have modified the rolling pin, so my wife can use it again and in the worst case scenario will the fuse work properly again (at least I hope). The moral of the story is do not buy high tech iron. Buy just the cheapest one. The heating platform seems to be the same in all models. So does not matter how much it cost, in a short time after warranty time passed tell you good bye, with no chance for reasonable repair costs.

I have a tefal pro express turbo GV8150 and there is constant team coming from iron without me touching the steam button. Can anyone help with a diagnosis and or possible fix?


constant steam means the control valve is not working
descaling may fix the problem
the other fix is a new iron as the cost to repair is generally more that a replacement price

I have a Tefal Pro Express Turbo iron (purchased in 2005). In the past 2 days the steam is constantly on - the button does not appear to be stuck. I can't get the steam to stop... unless I take out...


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.

My tefal express 2941 steams constantly when switched on and cannot be stopped, please advise?


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

Tefal Pro Express - Constant Steam (Model 2932)


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.
