SOURCE: tefal express iron cleaning

Thankfully I was able to clean the boiler compartment, by unscrewing the large bolt on the boiler, cleaned with water only, loads of brown yuck came out, It would then not allow me to use the steamer, Waited until the next morning tried again and working brilliantly again.

White vinegar and a toothbrush. You can clean the whole steam path with 25% vinegar to 75% water. Steam it through. Run plain water afterwards to rinse it out.

How do I get rid of of black dirt that is coming out of steam holes?


it is corrosion build up in the iron
you can try a quality steam iron cleaner but that process is generally short lived and the problem will return
The normal fix is a new iron and using only demineralized water-- not tap water

My steampress 660 is has black stuff coming out


Hi Beverly. The "dried stuff" is scale which occurs naturally in tap water. You should always use DISTILLED water - buy litre bottles (approx.$2.ea Home Brand) all supermarkets. Electricity off, empty out all the water in your iron. Half fill with distilled water, cover the filling hole, and shake water inside iron side to side, up and down, vigorously, empty distilled water out and watch carefully to see if water runs clear or has sediment coming out - may need to repeat this action. When water runs clear re-fill iron as normal with distilled water. Put iron on lowest STEAM setting, LIFT up iron but with soleplate facing down onto an old rag/towel (brown water may come out) press steam button on & off to try & clear the holes. Turn iron off, allow to cool. Thick cloth wipe soleplate over getting into the holes if they have not cleared. Triple wrap a wooden skewer in cloth soaked in white viegar or "scale remover" and circulate it around the blocked holes. Go very carefully do not scratch the coating on the soleplate or holes - very important. Let us all know how this goes please and if I have been of help, do hope so. Good luck, Chris

No steam coming throwc


Normally when water is put inside steam irons, it get stored in tank then if thermostat knob is set for steam then water moves to bottom heated portion of iron. Water converts to steam as base plate is hot, heated steam comes out through perforated holes. If holes are blocked due to scale formation steam flow is blocked. The descaling has to be done as per instructions given on descaling wax manufacturer. sometimes if water does not enter through a rubber washer that is water tank to heated bottom portion then also steam will not get generated hence no steam. Please check above points and identify the problem.

Solenoids workin, steam lines fine, but no steam


take hose off from iron end,press iron button ,breifly! keep tight hold of hose [best to put towel around hose while holding]see if steam comes out.if not hose could be blocked, then take hose from solenoid end and press button .if no steam comes out the solenoid is either faulty or the valve hole inside is blocked,turn off power and take nut off top of solenoid ,check spring and plunger for condition.the small hole may be blocked in the solenoid housing,try a needle in the hole to clear any blockage.

It's a possibility that you iron steam making elements are caked with lime and possibly the steam holes as well.

Purchase some "Lime Away" and dilute it 50/50 and pour it into your steam iron (drain all the old water out first and leave the iron unpluged) let sit for an hour or so and drain out, fill it again with clear water shake and drain out do this a couple of time then turn on the steam and see if it works properly, use the first time on an old towel to be sure all the chemical has been rinced out. Good Luck.
