Question about Polder KSC-310-28 Easy-Read Digital Kitchen Scale, Extra Large LCD Displa, 11Lb 4Kg Capacity, 1/8oz 1gram Increments, Add & Weigh, Auto Off, 4AAA Bat

Replaced three batteries in polder kitchen scale, now it just flashes light. Can't turn on or off and no digital readings

I replaced the three triple a batteries and now all the scale does is have a flashing light that cannot be turned off. The scale no longer works. When I put the original batteries back in for a test, it does the same thing, flashes light only. No on or off, no digital readout. Seems it cannot handle having the batteries taken out just once.

Be sure all 3 batteries are fresh and also be sure they are in correctly .positive+ and negative- , to proper placement in machine. Typically the spring contact points go on the flat -end of battery and the + nipple end of battery goes on the solid or button contact on the machine. Spring end contact points on machine may be an actual spring or a raised metal piece either way they are the end that flexes and holds the battery tight against both contact points. Sometimes the spring must be carefully pulled to make it give more holding pressure. Good luck and I always say Google it!

All the lights on iron won't stop flashing.

It sounds as though it is blocked up with lime scale which won't allow the sensors to work so stopping all the functions....

I hope this helps....

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.

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.

My Rowenta Garment Steamer will not steam up.

Ok. This thing is caused by scaling. If the steam generator runs out of water the sensor thinks the tank is empty and causes the machine to go to standby (basically switch off -- orange light comes on). The solution: Open the machine and clean it.


1. There are six screws ( phillips - you will need a long screwdriver). Two of them are hidden under the wheels (just pop off the rollers and you will see the screws)

2. Open the steam generator (there are four screws) and be very careful with the 'O' ring -- you damage it and you can say good bye to the machine. Clean it if you see scaling. The amount of scaling present would indicate how hard your water was. This itself may not be cause of the problem but now that you openend the machine, you might as well as clean it for better efficiency.

3. Disconnect the hose to the steam generator (it has two circlips) and clean it. Mine had hard deposit of scales preventing the water reaching the steam generator.

Re assemble it.

Good Luck

My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.

SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.

Weight watcher scale not calibrating weight correctly

Press the scale once with your foot. All screen options should display to initialize and then go to 0.0. Now step on the scale. It should read out your correct weight. If not, first remove and replace the battery for reset. If still not, replace the battery. If still not it's ready for return or replacement. Hope it works! Dave - CA
