How to change a water pump in Morphy Richards steam generator iron.

Your steam generator iron just stopped to work, there is no steam from it. Warranty on the appliance is finished! Was very expensive!

Manufacturer asking £80 for repair!

If you visit my website it means that your Morphy Richards steam generator is no working properly.

You can fix steam generator iron of other makers, they are similar to repair.

I am a qualified electrician, have fixed 100's of these irons and sold 100's of pumps.

First of all, make sure your iron is unplugged and cool.

At the bottom you will need to unscrew 5 screws, then split into halves.

The top half is attached to the bottom by wires at the switch end.

Morphy Richards non-pressurised steam generator iron opened.

The water pump is placed between boiler and water tank, a green item with 3 wires.

To disconnect wires you will need a screwdriver or something similar as there is protection on the connectors, won't come off easily. Need to push a middle of the connector to release it and then pull it.

To Julie Williams In these models, there is a valve to release steam. The valve looks like not opens every time, the reason may be a limescale or loosen the electrical connection. Micro-switch in the handle can be blamed as well as connectors can be burned. I would start from the switch in the handle checking. Regards admin

Many thanks for the wonderful support, I ordered the pump which arrived very quickly and was quite reasonably priced. Your website instructions were excellent and I was able to change the pump in 15 minutes or so. Our Morphy Richards Jet Stream is now working perfectly again. Really appreciate it, well done. A+++

Hi. How do I know if it’s the pump that isn’t working - it’s making all the noises but no water coming through. Took it apart the pipes look ok. Don’t want to buy a pump if that’s not the fault. There is no suction on the little nozzle that attaches yo the water filter when I put my finger on it. Thanks

To Jason If the lights are shows that all ok you will need to change the valve which is placed on the boiler. This valve when opens release steam, can be stuck by limescale. Try to descale this valve. Regards

Our Morphy model No 42269 stopped making steam and I have looked at your brilliant instructions above but now need to order a new pump. We live in New Zealand but my Sister lives in Windsor, West London and the part could be sent to her place and we can pay by Credit card from here if thats possible.Regards Trevor T

To David To check if pump or PCB is faulty. You need to check if is voltage on the pump when you press the trigger. You can use a multimeter or use 240V light bulb connected instead pump.Regards admin

Hello. Morphy Richards power steamelite. If I take brass plug out and fill tank with water steam works. However it will not transfer from plastic refillable tank to main tank and a light comes on to refill. I hear no pump noise at all to transfer. Is this the pump on this thread or possible pcb. Thanks
