Tefal saves production costs by shortening its cord length


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 June 2020 at David Jones Retail Stores for $120.00.

It does its work


Heats up quickly in seconds, safe and easy to operate. Bought on a special offer, look for a special offer or discount. Suitable for daily used clothes, less meant for suits and jackets. Very handy to store and move, very efficient in terms of electricity consumption since heats uo in no time

Questions & Answers



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


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
