    My tefal pro express needs descaling from the inside of the holes where the steam comes out. I have aways flushed through the system as per the manufacturers guide but have white streaks over my clean clothes and sometimes the steam is not getting through. Can you help me please?

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.

My Tefal Steam generator needs de-scaling i have the kit but I have lost the instructions

you can download new instructions from the web. Remove the anticalc cover at the side and unscrew the metal nut, take care to ensure the little rubber seal is still inside the nut and not stuck to the opening. Plug one end of the hose into the iron ( it will fit without moving as it can only go in one way) connect the other end to the tap, turn on the tap and watch it flush out all the build up. leave it flushing for a few minutes then turn off the water. personally I then empty all the water from the base and then put the nut and cover back on fill up the tank and iron.

Tefal Express 1750 has water dripping from it when using steam

That means that water is not heated properly and does not produce steam.

Try a complete descaling, often this happens because the water reservoir and heating element is covered with scale.

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.
