Our out of warranty Tefal steam generator iron has started emitting steam
from underneath. Instructions state that if this happens the item should not
be used but sent back to be fixed. It will cost £12.50 for an estimate? on
top of the postage before parts and labour costs. I think that a seal has
probably worn so and have found a few outlets for parts. My problem : To get
into the guts I need a screwdiver which is like a Torx but
Torx is star-shaped. These are sextagonal, allen key type screws with of all
things a pin in the center, I have no idea where to get one of these or what
they are called.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Pop down to your local Aldi and they may still have sets of them left in
yellow boxes on their shelves - failing that, I believe that you can pick
them up from the tool departments of the various 'sheds'.
As an emergency, I have "adapted" by cutting a notch in the centre, a
relevant sized, flat bladed screwdiver to fit between the 'indentations' and
over the central 'pip'.
