I suggest to remove the bad thermostate and try to buy a similar one. First remove the scew which fix the thermostate on the iron base. Then carefully disconnect the two wires and mark them in order to connect correctly the new one. I used to make a litlle sketch.
But before buying a new thermostate, you should test the thermic fuse (a small component placed into a thermic "sleeve" and fixed with a small brace screwed to the base) as when the thermostate jams this fuse burns out, giving a second protection.

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.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in wat

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 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.

Instructions for use DiLonghi StiroMeglio compact iron (steam boiler Iron)


Is a long story but i make short.Don`t be afraid to leave your iron on.Is common to water tank iron to get working in more then 5-10 minutes.That machine are really safe since they do have more then 1 thermostat to control the water pressure.
How they work is pretty easy.The boil the water to a certan temperature and you know after certan F. the water become steam generatin pressure and steam.The thermostat control the heater and the electroswitch release the steam

If your in not making any steam after 5-10 minutes make sure you hear the electroswitch working.Sometimes they get cloght and even if the boil is under the pressure you can not get any steam at all
Good Luck

Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator Iron


Once you have filled up with water and always just below full line, if your model has one, you need to press the "reset" or "restart" button on the back end of the generator (the end furthest away from the water container). Also, do be sure to regularly descale as advised above otherwise the water/steam can't get through.
