JACUSTOMER-d4f951y9- : FD:9301. E-NR. TDS4570GB/02
JACUSTOMER-d4f951y9- : What is the answer please
Dales-Electronic :

OK I need you to answer you a few questions to understand what is happening, when you set the iron to a temperature does the temperature icon flash or stay lit after a short while?

JACUSTOMER-d4f951y9- : It only flashes
Dales-Electronic :

OK when you say steam comes out of the upper end and water out of the lower end are you talking about the sole plate or hoses?

JACUSTOMER-d4f951y9- : The sole plate
Dales-Electronic :

OK and when did you carry out your last descaling operation?

JACUSTOMER-d4f951y9- : Yesterday after the problem occured
Dales-Electronic :

OK to state the obvious, this iron is temperature controlled by a electronic pcb connected to a NTC sensor, the fact that you have some heat indicates that the sole plate element is working but not getting hot enough. The fact that you get steam at one end and water at the bottom is because the sole plate is not hot enough. So in your case you have a problem with the either the pcb or the NTC sensor (pcb part number 00751215 @ £50 ~~ NTC sensor (part number 00622160 @ £21) - if you can use a multimeter I can help you test them out if you are prepared to take the iron apart. ~ Ian

JACUSTOMER-d4f951y9- : Hi Ian thanks for your help I'm not able to take the iron apart but hopefully know someone you may be able to help me with the information you supplied to me. Many thanks
