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.

SOURCE: tefal steam iron not heating up properly

That is probably because the contacts to the element at the base of the iron are broken.

To disassemble you have to remove the casing, then remove the steam pump at front top of iron and then undo the safety screw mounted on the front of the base plate.

SOURCE: Iron leaking and plate dirty

If you have hard water, there will be a buildup of minerals where the rubber gasket on the water tank meets the steam chamber that is built into the sole plate. This will make the rubber gasket surface become hard and no longer seak to the team chamber, resulting in water leaking from the tank onto the outside of the iron.

If you are reasonably skilled with tools and have a Torx T20 driver, you can disassemble the iron and remove the rubber gasket between the tank and the steam chamber and soak it in vinegar to remove the mineral scale. First remove the three Torx screws visible at the rear of the iron and gently pry off the gray rear cover plate. This will expose two screws holding the rear end of the sole plate. Remove those two screws. Then gently pry off the stainless steel nose piece on the front of the iron; this is the curved piece that says "high precision" on it. This will then expose the screw that holds the front of the sole plate on the handle. Remove thqt screw. Pull the black connector at the rear of the iron off the two rods to which it is attached, and you can move the sole plate away from the handle. The rubber piece in the handle that is sort of oval shaped and about 2 inches long is the gasket that is probably causing the leak. Gently remove it and soak it in vinegar to remove the scale, and remove the scle from the round hole where it meets the steam chamber in the sole plate. .When they are clean, reassemble the gasket onto the handle and the sole plate onto the handle, connecting the electrical connections, and replace the screws, It is not simple, but it is doable.

Tefal iron steam generator


Steam irons can become clogged with mineral deposits. Use distilled water in the iron to minimize these deposits.
To clean the iron , use 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 water. pour in iron and place iron on steam. The iron may require a few cleanings.

How do I clean the water reservoir in my T-FAL Avantis 90 iron. When I use the iron hard particles come out of the steam holes.


Hi, Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron... If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that... For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water, and then use the bottled water instead...

When empty, fill with white vinegar, let it heat up then hold the steam button down to let the vinegar run through the iron. Do this over the sink!! Then fill with water and repeat to rinse the vinegar out.
The vinegar will dissolve the mineral deposits in the iron.

No instructions came with my Avantis 100. Mode. 1829/A 3.12 104. I have used it for several years, just guessing and hoping I am using it correctly. Would you have information on it.


If you have been using it for several years, you are using it correctly already. the fact that it still operates indicates that you use the proper sort of water in it (not using distilled water is the number one cause of failure in irons). The information available for the Avantis is really generic and will not add to your success, I assure you. Iron on! Farmerbear at FixYa.com

Hi My iron seems to auto shut off in 2 secs when I plug in the power, it shows the red light for a sec and off, what could be the issues.


How old is it?
Is it still under warrenty? if it is take it back to where you bought it.

Otherwise it sounds like the thermostat is broken. Wallmart has some very nice cheap irons.
