Tefal Quick Cup not working

Hi

My Tefal Quick Cup has stopped working properly.

Most of the time it just won't do anything. Occasionaly it will work but only dispense cold water even when hot water button is pressed. It I unplug it and plug it back in, then try to get hot water, it will work for a few seconds then start to run cold.

Can anyone please advise ?

Thanks

    I just bought my Quick & Hot on Saturday and todays (Tuesday) it won't give me hot water. I am not doing anything different from before, clicking on the red hot water button but it comes out cold.



    Any ideas?

This is in my opinion a design problem. The wiring connects to the spiral heating element via spring loaded contacts which only have a tiny connection surface area. These gets arcing deposits on the surfaces and will periodically require scraping clean. To get access prise off the silver top assembly which is a snap fit, unclip the circuit board and pull the plastic water pipe off the top of the plastic cylindrical tank. Then remove the two star screws from the base and prise it free. The whole internal assembly can now be carefully removed intact from the kettle housing but the circuit board at the top will need to be turned vertically and guided down the main body on the way out.

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.

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...

Water left in fabric dispenser after load


Hi,

The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.
Best regards, --W/D--

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!!
