Tefal Quick Cup

Bought the Quick Cup last yesterday, used it a couple of times very happy with it.

Got up this morning, switched the appliance on at the wall (we always switch off unnecessary appliances overnight), the light comes on red for about 1 second, then goes out. I press the button and nothing, no hot, no room temperature water just nothing comes out.

    I took mine to pieces and it definitely isn't limescale. I can get water to come out now but it still won't heat up. Definitely a manufacturing fault. I think lots of people are getting this problem.

I found that after a few months of use I had to unplug the unit from the mains and plug it back in to reset it. It then ran OK until I wanted to use it again. I took it apart and found that the heating element and temperature sensor (thermistor) were attached to the electronics via copper spring clips. These had formed corrosion where they made contact. A quick clean to the restore the copper colour cured the unit. It now works every time.

As you are getting a light, then the fuse/ supply is ok .

Does it have water in it?
If not, it may be a safety cut out sensing this - and turning off.

Check the manual for any mention of a "thermostatic trip" This may be user-resettable by means of a rod or button underneath, or may need to cool down - you may even hear a click when it does.

If not - then it is likely to be a manufacturing fault within the heating element.
You should be able to return it to the shop you bought it from for a full refund.

How to descale tefal express boil


I was searching for this solution then I found the manual in a draw so to help anyone else with the same problem the method is:
Descaling should be carried out every 3 months.
Fill the appliance to max. Dispense maximum size cup to a large cup.
Add descaler to the cup then pour back into appliance.
Dispense the mixture in the appliance into the cup and disgard.
Continue until applance is at minimum water level.
Empty the appliance then refill with water and run it through the machine and disgard until its at minimum then empty the appliance again.
It should be ready for use. You can use 1ltr white (and only white) vinegar instead of the descaler and water mixture.

Tefal quick cup kettle water coming out in slow spurts,have changed filter but no improvement.


If you are in a hard water area you may need to descale the heater element. Try adding 1 cup vinegar to 3 cups water and run the machine should clear up the scale. Rinse thoroughly before use.

Just bought a tefal quick cup from john lewis and we have lost the instructions, could you tell me how to turn the blue light off on the top when you change the filter . thank you.


Follow this procedure when you change the filter:

Press the hot water button H and the ambient water button G, for at least 5 seconds.

After 5 seconds, the indicator light will go out. The appliance will then have recorded the cartridge change.

If you are happy with my response pease vote for this answer.

Thanks

Hello tefal quick cup water is no longer hot only


we had to return our first one for the same problem Gavin. Tefal (surprise surprise) claimed that nobody else had EVER had that problem. 2 years down the track though, and i've discovered that mine turns itself on at random intervals, and floods the kitchen bench. My advice - get a refund while you still can...

Tefal Quick Cup


ALERT :- Tefal Quick Cup can TURN IT SELF ON. Tefal know about this but it is a potential fire hazard. Mine turned itself on and dispensed the water reservoir over my kitchen. Dread to think if I had been out shopping what could have happened. Tefal know about this problem but are not doing anything to advertise the fault!!
