SOURCE: STEAMER NOT WORKING
When I got my X1 (used,) the steamer was clogged. I unscrewed the end of the nozzle, and a big chunk of calcium(?) came out. I had to poke it with some wire with the steamer on. The way I got the end off is: I wrapped it with a leather glove first, then turned it with a pair of pliers. I still managed to scratch it a little bit though. Maybe you can turn it by inserting a needle in the little hole on the side of the nozzle. I've been thinking of using distilled water to avoid the calcium build-up in the future.

I had the same problem on an X5 model, eventually we realized that you we could unscrew the entire nozzel fairly easily (not just the little steam attachment on the end). Once we'd done this, it was easy to soak the entire nozzel in hot soapy water. I then used a needle and dental floss to get the entire thing clean inside. Not very technical, but it worked for me. Worth a try if you haven't already sorted this.
