Hi all
I had exactly the same problem with mine!
I also have a Bissell Steam Mop for my sealed wood floors, and the manual suggested using vinegar if the system ever became blocked. I tried it with the Steam Duck, and it now works perfectly again!
Just put enough vinegar in the water tank to cover the inlet pipe - about 3 tablespoons, heat in the usual way, and you should be away laughing!! You may need to pump the thingy a few times.
Good luck

Take off the round agitators one at a time, by popping off the center cap and use a hex driver to remove the screw. Tilt out aggitator, and clean back of agitator, hyousing and gear box of the moldy/mildew build up..its kinda gross. That is where the stink comes from.

I can't open the water reservoir on a Karcher 1501 steam cleaner - the screw thread may be worn - any idea how to fix this? thanks, Bill Donaldson

likely soap or such has bound it .
wash it in hot water. or wrap hot towels around it
the heat will also make it expand.

Steam coming out of washer drawer

This problem happened to us too, fortunately it's quite easy to repair. The problem may lie with the water inlet solenoid (rear of machine, top left under the top cover). The cold water inlet to condense the steam may not be working correctly and the steam comes out of the detergent drawer. Replace this solenoid (bank of three on the water inlet) and this should solve your problem.
