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.

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

Howdy,
The Tefal PDF links for your model are not present, but here is the manual for a similar model by Tefal: http://www.t-falusa.com/NR/rdonlyres/FEBC20F7-ADAC-459C-9213-B3C3B67E57CF/210/PRIMA_gb.pdf

I hope you find it pertinent to your model:)

Tefal aquaspeed 260 No heat no light. Fuse OK


I had the same problem. Turned out to be dirty contacts on the thermostat, easily cured with a strip of sandpaper, but you need to dismantle the iron first.
  • Remove the 3 Torq screws in the heel plate (the purple triangular bit at the back, that you stand the iron up on when it's cooling off). One of the screws is a security screw so you'll need a special screwdriver, though I suppose you could risk drilling it out if you're desperate.
  • Prise off the bottom section of the heel plate, to reveal the cable connector block. Pull out the connector block (it's just a push fit).
  • Pull out the self clean / steam selector button.
  • Prise off the white plastic front cover (the one under the self clean button, that surrounds the jet spray nozzle).
  • Under the cover are 3 screws that hold the sole plate and iron body together. Undo them.
  • Now you should be able to separate the main components of the iron and get to the thermostat. Check the contacts - mine had a build-up of carbon from the arcing as the thermostat operates. Clean both faces with a strip of sandpaper, then reassemble the iron, being careful to align the temperature selection lever correctly.

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.

i do believe is something wrong with the thermostat or the electronic board.That model i do believe(but i`m not sure) have a small circuit board controlling the temperature and the safety.Make sure also your thermostat handle is working properly because sometimes the connector between the handle and the thermostat can get bad and not adjusting the right temperature

How to dismantle a Tefal Aquaspeed 150


no, its not the Aquaspeed 170, but Aquaspeed 150. i succeded to unwrap the housing, but did fail in disconnecting or dismounting the power cord terminal.i could not disassemble the Iron to reach the heater. to dismantle, step 1 unscrew 3 visible screws. step 2 lift the heel cover away, by unsnapping 1 hooks at the right and one at the left side of the heel cover. i used thumnbnail to deform the heel cover for not to wear out the snap-in hooks. step 3 remove the dischalk stick (don't know the right wording in english) step 4 lift the top cover (which covers the spray jet part), 2 hooks at both left and right, use thumbnail or flat screwdriver, start at the top hook. step 5 take off the spray and steam buttons, 1 hook at the front side, 1 hook at the outer back side step 6 take off 2 screws: one keeps the upper half of the handle, the other fixes the water container at the heater plate. Attention: when unmounting the container, and turning the iron upside down, a small (4mm diam, ~10 mm length) silicone cylinder part will fall out, some kind of actor of a bimetal thermo switch in the ground plate, which probably controls water flow (not the electric thermostate) so far so good, i got my problem solved, but would like to know how to disassemble the container from the ground plate and how to replace the cable?
