Question about Tefal UltraGlide Easycord FV4256 Iron

2 Answers

Hi I have a Tefal Ultraglide 50 which I don't feel produces enough steam to get creases out although you can get a good blast when you press the shot of steam button.I only purchased this around May time to replace another Tefal iron which I had always been really pleased with. I have tried self cleaning the iron but didn't help the problem to any great degree. Any suggestions or, as it is fairly new should I try and get a replacement? Thanks

I had the same problem with my Tefal steam iron, and it turned out the air vent in the fill spout was blocked. I cleaned it out with a nozzle cleaner and it now works fine. to test it try using the iron with the water filler open, if it works OK it's the vent blocked.

My tefal aqua is not taking out creases but i can see steam coming out of the iron I have tried the instructions according to the manual for cleaning but still no good please help


Some creases cannot be removed with any steam iron.

Dampen the area with the creases or place a wet press cloth over the area and try again.

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


Found this on another site and just tried it. Put 50/50 water and vinegar in the tank and leave it to go through on the constant steam. Give it about 5 minutes then try the button. Mine gave an extra spurt of steam at this point but still continued giving steam out all the time. I refilled with the water vinegar mix and just kept pressing the steam button and letting it go through. Eventually it fixed it and the constant steam stopped. Something to do with a piece of limescale blocking the solenoid but that's all Greek to me! Hope this helps. Kind regards.
