Your polti is blocked up with limescale, you can try and decscale it but mine didn't work after that so I dismantled it, cleaned the valves out and now she's running at full steam ahead.

It should go just below the red providing steam isn,t escaping from the cap otherwise you won,t get the pressure build up to enable it to come out when you pull the trigger

My polti steam cleaner wont work when i click trigger


Check the wand and line for calcium build up especially in the nozzle. Hard water will deposit a lot of calcium in the system, which needs to be cleaned regularly to keep it running freely.

Repair Polti VT Evolution steam cleaner doesn't work


Steam nozzle/lines are probably clogged. The minerals in the water will eventually clog up the system, you need to use only Distilled water whenever possible to eliminate as many minerals from the water as you can. If the screws are spinning and not coming out, you will have to pry up slightly on the cover the put pressure on the inner parts so they will come apart. Easiest way is to push something like an old credit card betwen the seams and pry up carefully. go slow and easy so you won't break anything.

Due to illness etc I've not used my Polti 2400 for a couple of years. Now I want to use it I have all the paperwork that came with it - except the instructions! Can you help.


Polto steam cleaner 2100/2400 yellow, the on switch will not click on so the water does not heat up. The orange light comes on when i press the on switch but goes off and the button comes back up as soon as i let go. Any ideas will be gratefully received.

No steam polti 2001r, heats up clicks, but no steam!!!!!!


the solenoid valve isn,t operating when you pull the trigger. It is caused by either the coil has burnt out on the solenoid or the valve itself is stuck

NO STEAM EVEN THO THE DIAL GOES RIGHT UP TO THE RED


Hi i've had the same problem Put a phial of Kal stop into 1000 or 1500ml of water into the tank, let it heat up and it should break down the limescale of the solenoid. It's worked for me. Have a good evening;-)

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full


Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.

Polti Vaporetto


Dear Terena

Had the same problem with a polti vaporetto 1500 ( vtt 1500 ) after butchering the big valve on the top I realised that the problem was that there was a blockage in the black pipe that comes from the machine to the trigger, the pipe that carries the steam in other words, so I got a piece of wire ( brake cable form a bike shop ) long enough to go at least half way down the pipe and then I pushed the wire down the hole at the trigger end and then from the other end that joins to the polti and hey presto the blockage was gone and the machine works fine again. If you use the machine again after you have cleared the blockage from the pipe you should be able to remove the valve from the top remeber that the water is now steam so it is very hot and will burn you so be carefull when opening the valve when hot I think that you will have to open it when it is warm not hot as what has happened is that scale has got in the threads of the valve and sealed it, so if you get it undone ( try pushing it down hard as you turn it Whilst it is warm only not hot ) then get some kettle descaler and put some in a bowl of hot water and put the valve threaded end in the descaler for 10 minutes to get rid of the scale and in the mean time put some descaler around the threads on the polti where the valve goes this will allow the valve to screw back on easily and you will be back to normal use again remember to keep the valve screw threads free of scale in the future I have only just reallised this so dont feel alone.
