Poor purchase, serious issues

published

Like many reviewers here, shortly after a year my Tefal iron experienced an issue where it would go into auto off mode in the middle of ironing, requiring the power to be switched off then back on. Contacted Tefal and they said bad luck, I’m out of warranty!

Purchased in at Catch for $135.

Keeps turning off mid use

published

I purchased this iron 5 months ago - it Irons well, light to handle BUT auto off light flashes red & consequently turns the iron off - I can only remedy this by turning off at power point & turning back on - this is repeated every 5 MINUTES.
Other reviews have also encountered this problem.
This is not acceptable.

Broke within the year, doesn't iron well.

published

This is the second Tefal iron I have replaced within 3 years. The first broke within 12 months and this one constantly turns off and I have to unplug it and turn it back on at the switch. The steam isn't great and it doesn't really iron out creases. I had a Tefal for years that was excellent the latest offerings by Tefal are terrible.

Tefal saves production costs by shortening its cord length

published

Have been a fan of Tefal irons in the past - having owned a few. Just replaced a Phillips that was rubbish from the start, with a new Tefal.
The good:
- heats quickly
- glides well
- not so prone to leaks (like the Philips)
The bad:
- Tefal have shortened their power cord lengths. VERY noticeable. It is 60cm shorter than the Philips. I know it is a different brand however I notice it also because the ironing board needs to be right on top of the power point, otherwise I pull the cord out of the wall when trying to iron.

This is a really really poor. A short cord length on an iron is dangerous. If they want to save money then reduce the number of models produced. On this basis I will not buy another Tefal iron.

Purchased in at David Jones Retail Stores for $120.

nice iron!

published

This iron is easy to use and it heats up quickly so you don't have to wait long. It irons different fabrics really well and glides over the surface smoothly and easily. It's safe so you don't burn yourself or your clothes.

Good iron but heavy

published

This is certainly a good iron and does an excellent job. The only thing I would suggest is to check that you're happy with the weight as I found it to be heavy to use. I also found that the turbo boost button under the handle made it a little uncomfortable for me to hold, but this may be different for other users. It doesn't take long to heat up though, and is certainly effective.

So easy to use

published

The ease of use of this iron was a leading factor in purchasing this product. Fill it up with water and let iron glide away on any fabric and material without the worry of burn marks.

Comfortable on your hand and Auto Shut down

published

Many time in fear that my iron is not switched off. But with my new iron as i got it for a present is so much better. I do ironing every day, with little kids around. This iron is light easy on hand, large hole for water, many functions and the bottom, by seeing it you will know its the most quality one. Calc easy cleaning , so after so often use still good as new.

Excellent Iron

published

I use my iron a lot more than most people, almost daily, because I make garments and quilts. I've gone through a lot of irons and I know that there are big differences between them. The most expensive ones aren't always the best.But it's an excellent piece of iron.This iron is very safe

Lead is short enough to be hazardous

published

Functionally it is generally very good and it seemed a safe bet, anyway, based on our use of an earlier model. However, the steam control is a bit hit and moss and it does belch quite a large burst of steam now and then, in a fairly random and potentially painful way. More fundamentally, I guess the device will expire in a few years, like all irons do, and at the most inconvenient time.
Manufacturers and .retailers should be cursed for marketing products which they seem to deem to be "disposable" and Irons, toasters, etc are prime examples that arise from that philosophy. Sadly, they actually design and make them with scant regard for repairability or for the disassembly and recycling of the materials - so off to the landfill site they go.

I own an FV5648 which I bought a few years back. In the last few months, while using the iron, the red pilot lamp starts flashing and the iron stops heating. This happens annoyingly at very regular intervals. The only way to get the iron going again is switching off the power (and takes a few attempts). I have to keep doing this a few times during an ironing session of say a hour. Very annoying. Does anyone know why this is the sase and how to resolve it permanently?

Either yourv ran out of water in the tank or it might need descaling

ram

plenty of water in the tank; not sure about the descaling bit; the iron hasn't been used much after it was de-scaled previously; just wondering if it could be any other reason; hoping a tefal rep will be see this and respond
