Hi , I am Tech Michael an expert in this field and I will be assisting you today. I am a Master Technician that's dedicated to giving you the best Answer possible.

If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:

1. We may need some back and forth to exchange information (if needed) and there is no extra cost for replying.

2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.

The better you describe the problem, the quicker I can help ;-)

Yes this is dangerous!

But also I hate to tell you, yes the parts are available but the cost is almosrt as much as a new iron, so it is time really to replace that one as I would, especially for safety reasons.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

the Iron is only just over 2 years old. There are only 2 of us in the house. Are you telling me that a Bosch item is not fit for use after only 2 years? Whats the point of buying an expensive item if it only lasts 2 years/

Hi, if yours is leaking as it is, and tripping the RCD, then it has a dangerous fault and the system senses that and shuts the unit down. Its a rare occurrence that this happens, but this one has failed in a dangerous way.

I wish I had better news for you I really do. If you want to repair this iron, I can tell you where to get the parts and I will help you all the way though the repair.

But really, if this was mine, I wouldn't spend that much on this repair, I would simply buy a new iron.
