Question about Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

Open Question

My steam mop whistled and scared me so I unplugged it. Did I prime it to many times?

As I primed my steam mop a few times and started to move it forward the thing just started whistling at me. I unplugged it and I dont know If I did something wrong? Will it be okay to plug it back in and use it?

SOURCE: My shark steam mop heats up but won't steam. help

Problem: mineral dleposits. Just fixed mine.... DO THIS OUTDOORS. Add 1/2 c CLR to the tank, let sit for an hour, turn on, allow to heat and pump. May have to refill with CLR and repeat. Be persistent, and eventually you'll blow out a wad of dissovled minerals followed, happily, by billows of steam. Again, do this outdoors and keep the mop pointed away from people, plants and things. (I aimed mine into a cardboard box.) Follow up with a couple of tanks of water and pump until empty to clean out any residual CLR and loosened deposits. (I continued to get some black precipitate through the first water cleaning.) I will add that I began this process first with white vinegar, then with Lime Away..no luck put perhaps I was not sufficiently persistent. Or perhaps it was the sequence of attempts. (Also, do not take off the mop head...the part to which you attach the pads...it's tough to get off, does not allow access to parts that need cleaning (thought it would, not not so), and practically impossible to get back on.)
Alternatively, call Shark...they'll offer to repair for $18 plus $10+/- shipping, or may offer you a new one at "preferred customer" rate of $39.95 plus shipping. Good luck, and please remember to try the CLR outside.

Shark stopped steaming how to fix this


It may be mineral deposits. Empty reservoir of water, add 1/2 cup of CLR. Let sit 1 hour. Take mop outside with a mop head on but not the cloth padding. Plug it in and start pumping the handle to prime it. I used cardboard to do this on to cushion the mop and soak up moisture. Keep pumping handle until the mineral deposits clear and full steam is coming out. When I was done, I unplugged the mop, dumped out remaining CLR, and rinsed out mop reservoir with water. Please add fresh water, plug in and steam out rest of CLR out of tube leading to mop head. Otherwise your mop will still issue out CLR steam. As always, be careful to unplug and let the unit cool down before adding or removing CLR, water or mop head. Steam can cause serious burns.

Lights on but no steam and getting hot


In order to produce steam, you have to "pump" the steamer. After it heats up, pump it while moving it back and forth on the floor while mopping - it takes a few strokes to get the steam really rolling. I love mine - ;)

No steam


I used the straw to prime the lines and 50/50 mix of vinager and water and it worked perfectly. I then mixed the water container with the same mix and ran it through the system. All works fine now.
