How to open this rinse boiler for tefal pro express 2929 iron


Hello there. Place a coin in the groove running along the centre of the plug and twist it, or lie the end of a screwdriver into the groove and twist it. If the plug still will not move then it is jammed in with scale.
Please see below how I solved the plug problem when it was being held down and was immoveable due to scale.
NOTE: In future always use $2.00 litre bottles of distilled water from supermarkets in your iron, never use scale laden tap water.

Tefal pro express steam generator iron I need to drain '& clean the boiler but the boiler drain plug is seized I can't loosen it
Use a small tack hammer (its head covered with a cloth) they have a far smaller and lighter head than a standard hammer. Tap all around the edge of the plug and in the middle. My thinking is that the plug is in the grip of scale. The tapping loosens it and it falls off. This worked for me.
Also tap the end of a tiny screwdriver like watchmakers use, or the head of a fine tip kitchen skewer around the perimeter edge of the plug, go gently around twice, plus the other tapping and it breaks the seal formed by scale which is holding the plug down.
Next, fill and rinse the boiler out up to 6 times to get rid of all the sediment and the rinse water runs 100% clean. Always use distilled water from supermarket from now on (litre less than $3.00). No more scale, no more cleaning. WARNING: Make sure boiler is totally water free after final rinse- out. Refill water container on the actual iron itself with distilled water from now on.
Please let us all know if this worked for you and if my post was helpful. Good luck with it, Chris.

How to clean inside of iron


Please don't take Landsend advice, as it contadicts this whole "fixya" site! Let's keep it going by not giving in to this throw away world! Some people can't afford a $20 iron @ Wally's!
All the solutions above (besides Landsend) are on it!! Your City water is still too, hard for these delicate, devices. Filtered, as Alan Serna mentioned, is the way to go!! Dump your water out of your iron, when not using-maintenance is key, for everything, even your families!! : ) Have a G8 day!

My Rowenta Expert steam generation iron (seperate tank for the water type) is starting to spit ever so often brown water out. I only use filtered water. How can I clean the actual Iron, the water tank is...


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...
