Hi what model of Morphy Richards iron do you have?
Power Steam Elite . I am guessing that I have mislaid the washer if there was one fitted . Thank You .
Ok I have one of these sitting next to me now
So your talking about water leaking from the base unit which houses the water tank (not the iron)
There should be a brass bolt fitted under a grey cap, is this what your referring to?
Yes . I undid the brass screw to descale the iron and when I replaced it a leak appeared from around the screw .
Ok, how did you descale the iron
Just unscrew the drain screw, and fill it with water and flush out the deposit
If this is the case, remove the brass bolt again and check to see if you have a orange washer on the brass screw (at the top near the screw head). My guess is that you just need to make it a little tighter, if the washer is present on the bolt, I would buy some PTFE tape from Screw Fit or B&Q and put it on the base of the screw thread, this should stop any leaking.
Yes . I have done that so hopefully my problem is solved . Thank You .
No problem, you can probably get a replacement bolt if you contact Morphy Richards, but it will probably cost 25% of a new iron anyway.
If I can be of any more assistance please let me know, so I can close this case please rate the level of service received today.Have a good evening
