Tefal steam iron leaking water and giving out steam at the same time.?
I have a Tefal Pro Express GV8330 Steam Generator, Anti Scale, 1.8 Litre Water Tank, when I press the steam button on the handle that is when the sole plate heats up. When you press the steam button it starts to gargle and leakes water from the holes as well giving out steam. The clothes are getting wet. Please help.
No steam when button pressed or continuous uncontrollable steam is usually symptomatic of the steam control valve having jammed (usually scaled up).
I cured mine by unscrewing the (brass) valve assembly from the boler, removing the (green plastic) solenoid unit from the valve then soaking the brass valve unit in descaling fluid for a couple of hours.
Afterwards, I rinsed off valve, reattached solenoid and screwed valve back into boiler unit.
The cleaned valve now works perfectly. Replacement valve assembly also available from various spare part sites on the internet.
