“Tefal Steam Irons are Amazing!”

Written on: 15/10/2014

We have had our Tefal Steam Iron for 2 years and it is without a doubt....amazing!. I have four children, so along with my husband and I (6) in the family, the iron is used 7 days per week non stop. I did hear that calcium builds up, however every iron I have ever owned does this. You just need to use distilled water. What a great product. If you don't have a Tefal steam iron you seriously are missing out on the most amazing product. I hated ironing until we bought this. Quick, easy and… Read Full Review

“Steer clear!”

Written on: 13/12/2012

I felt compelled to warn you away from purchasing this iron as like many others our 'Tefal pro-express' started to spit out brown stained water yesterday and tripped our electric circuit. I thought I'd give it a thorough clean before trying again, sadly to no avail - once again it started to spit out brown stained water and tripped the electric circuit. I bought the iron 18 months ago; unfortunately it is out of the 12 months warranty period. Reading the other reviews, it is clear that this is… Read Full Review

“design flaw”

Written on: 14/09/2012 by GMMS (1 review written)

15 mths ago I purchased the Tefal Steam generator iron model GV8461 and within the past month the lead has come off the reel which is incased within the stand. So I am not able to get the lead to extend out of the iron base. It is outside the 12 mth warranty so neither Tefal or the retailer want to know. The iron retails at £200 and Tefal offer was to get me to purchase another iron at a reduced price of £167.99 or send the faulty one off for repair with minimum charge of £64. It is day… Read Full Review

“Great iron”

Written on: 23/02/2012

I have had this iron for nearly a year. Periodically I did have problems with brown staining on light clothing even though I was following the instructions. Recently it has got much worse to I contacted Tefal to ask them how to fix this and this is the reply they sent back the following day: Thank you for your email regarding the above product. In order to keep your steam generator in peak condition, it is important to de-scale it regularly. In hard water areas, this procedure needs to be… Read Full Review

“Disappointing”

Written on: 29/01/2012 by Rosalyn123 (1 review written)

I too have been plagued with this machine for no rhyme of reason spilling out dirty brown water which stains the clothes. Even paid 65 pounds for it to be overhauled a few months ago. In the meantime I purchased a Philipps generator which was half the price and so very much better. Quite shocked to read just how many people were experiencing the same fault - this surely must be ironed out (excuse the pun !) by the Tefal manufacturers… Read Full Review

My tefal is doing the same thing. Think I am going to write to Which and the trading standards. It is an extortionate price to pay for 1 year of grace and no way to clean it. It has just ruined a very expensive pair of cream pants! Not impressed at all!

Omg...I have the same problem too. I am on my third Tefal. First one lasted a couple of years, but recently purchased a Tefal Pro Express and within a couple of weeks, brown muck spraying the clothes. So took it back to Argos and swopped it for another Tefal Pro Express different model, more money, but the same thing is happening. Any recommendations for a good iron?

“Bosch steam generating iron Sensixx B25L”

Written on: 22/09/2011

I have now had 4 Bosch steam generator irons that have splurted out brown water. I wonder if other people have had the same experience. It really isn't good enough that these expensive machines do this. I now keep the box and send them back when they do it and get a replacement, but that is a real hassle and what I really want is an iron that doesn't do it.... any ideas? Surely they can't go on manufacturing such a bad item of essential equipment. I certainly wouldn't have bought it if I'd… Read Full Review

I totally agree, I too have had three tefal steam generators that have not lasted more than 18 months. They are very expensive to replace each time. I have now bought a philips steam iron at a quater of the cost. If this lasts me a year then I will have saved some money.

second Tefal steam generator, I thought maybe first not lasting long was a one off so bought another. I have the same problems as others with brown stains on clothing which meant lots more washing. After 10 weeks it started leaking heavily and tripping the electric. The company I bought it from (electrical shopping.com) only offer a repair which I think is very poor. I have had a real problem finding a suitable box to return it then all of the inconvenience of having to return it. They use… Read Full Review

Oh yes nice and easy to use but not so good at leaving clothes without stains. I was so impressed when i first got this iron untill 3 months later when it started leaving brown stains on my washing. I'ts made my job twice as hard especially having to re-wash my husbands white shirts for work. Everytime i use it i have to flush it out and steam on a white cloth to make sure it does'nt leave any brown stains. This takes time and effort the former of which i have very liitle.

I have owned my Tefal Express generator iron for about 18 months and although I was very impressed when I first bought it and it made ironing a dream I am now very disallusioned. It would appear that the button under the handle of my iron has stopped working and now the iron constantly steams out of control. Also if I am not careful it will spit brown water over everything usually white washing!!. I have tried in vain to find someone who is prepared to look at my iron to see if it can be fixed… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/06/2010

This is the fourth Tefal generator that I have owned over the past 8 years. I had thought that I was just tough with my usage but after this one started to spit out brown water after just 8 months I began to think differently (takes time I know). Even after clearing the descaler it continually showed as needing to be cleaned and the brown marks continued. Then steam started escaping from the generator base and upon closer inspection I found a crack in the unit. What really finishes this off is… Read Full Review

After ANOTHER lot of brown water over the clothes I was ironing, from my Tefal Pro EXpress Steam Generator,in desperation,I telephoned Tefal Customer Relations,I was told I was using the wrong water, as I was in a hard water area, I should be using half tapwater and half distilled water, this was in the instructions for my model,(not in my book of instructions), on checking the instructions while I waited, she couldn't find them either. I should also be cleaning the iron every 10 uses, I… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...I am having the same problem with brown stains despite using the 'right water' and regular cleaning/flushing out. It has become unusable and I'm wondering whether to try and get it fixed or put it in the bin. Have had it about 18 months.

Written on: 25/09/2011

This seems a common problem that is easily fixed with a modicum of mechanical knowledge,the problem is a leaking safety relief valve which prevents proper steam being generated and causes water to pour from the base,sounds familiar then read on.Undo the small screw underneath you can get away with a small flat headed screwdriver if youre careful but the proper tool is a safety torx bit.Remove the base and you will see an aluminium cylinder and just to the side of it is the brass relief valve,now you may need a second pair of hands here,gently push down against the spring and remove the retaining circlip (carefully it may fly off and get lost or hit you in the eye!!!)then remove the spring top and spring and finally the lower insert,this is the bit that leaks,there is a rubber circle in the insert this will have a ring worn into it where steam has leaked,push this out and simply turn it over and reinsert it.All you have to do then is reassemble the relief valve and refit the circlip (careful etc,etc this is where a second pair of hands is invaluable)and simply refit the base.There you have it your iron is as good as new.

Written on: 17/03/2010

This is my third or fourth Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator iron (you'd think I would have learnt by now!!). It is 2 years and one month old, and the baseplate has lost all its heat, meaning that the steam still comes through, but converts to water and spits out of the baseplate, soaking my clothes and leaving filthy water marks all over my garments. Tefal offered me free collection, but said I would have to pay for an assessment and the costs of the actual repair, or they offered a discount… Read Full Review
