    The steam is generating as the Iron attachment works ok,
    Dont understand what is meant by the steam holes are "stucked" if it means blocked they are not as far as I can see.
    The cleaning hose attachment just is not producing the steam.

Ijust disconnect the hose. there is a small hole where the hose connects.
 put there a litlle screwdriver in few times in and out. and then the steam will be proper.
the polti must be switched on and heated up before you de this.
be carefull, when you put the screwdriver in, the steam can come on your hands and face.sp please take care.

Hi This control panel switch regulates the temperature of the water in the tub. It also plays a role in controlling the fill cycle. If you suspect this switch is faulty, remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing (the test takes special equipment). Or, hook a test wire across the switch terminals; if water flows, the switch is faulty. If the switch is faulty, replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.

If there's a problem with both water temperature and tub filling cycles, both the temperature switch and the timer may be faulty. Test both components and replace them as necessary. Procedures for testing the timer can be found below.

    hi
    The heating element is used to help dry the dishes. In most dishwashers, the heating element fits around the screen in the bottom of the tub housing; it looks like an electric oven element. The heating element doesn't malfunction often, but it can burn out. If you suspect a faulty element:

    Step 1: Test it with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Remove the dishwasher's bottom access panel and disconnect one of the power leads to the element. Clip one probe of the VOM to each element terminal. If the meter reads between 15 and 30 ohms, the element is working. If the reading is higher than 30 ohms, the element is faulty and should be replaced.

    Step 2: As needed, replace the heating element with a new one made for the dishwasher. Disconnect the electrical leads to the element's terminal screws and remove the nuts or other fasteners that hold the element to the terminals. From inside the tub, lift the element out. It may be held by clips and ceramic blocks in the tub, but you can easily thread it past these spacers. Set the new heating element in position, reconnect the power leads, and replace the fasteners that hold the element in place.

May be the problem wud be a blockage in the black pipe that comes from the machine to the trigger, the pipe that carries the steam in other words, so get a piece of wire ong 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.. 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...

Hi,

Without a specific model number, any assistance provided would be generic in nature. In most steam systems and based on your description, probable general area to start checking would be:

  • rubber seals that serves as gaskets. There is probable pressure leak;
  • faulty valve;
  • clogged/blocked lines/tubings, pipes/hoses;
  • thermostat faulty, cutting out early, boiling temperature barely or not even reached;
  • relief valve locked in open position.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Handle is to hot to hold and steam is comming out of the top of the handle


i believe your hot water/steam hose/tube runs through the middle of
the handle down to the floor(where it sprays hot water/steam. it ether came apart on the inside or you have a hole in it.

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

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

Have a polti vaporetto 2400 been used 3 times approx but out of warranty heats up ok but wont release steam when trigger pressed.have tried flushing water in tank with no results


these machines like to be used regularly. if allowed to sit (especially after using tap water) they may buld up lime deposits on valves and cause them to stick. you could try filling with vinegar and let set, also tilt it so vinegar runs into valve area. you could heat the vinegar and it will run through the trigger valve area. if this doesn't work you'll need to replace trigger valve.

Polti 1500 no steam just droplets of water


Before trying anything else make sure you turn up the pressure control knob in the direction of the + sign if it is turned right down you will have steam in the system and the gun will be heard to click open the flow control valve but you will not get any steam because the control screw is set too low just turn it anti-clockwise to increase the flow and your good to go .I hope this helps I have one too and I some times forget to turn up the flow and wonder why for 3 minutes then realise that during storage and manuevering it gets turned down by accident and i turn it up and all is well again.
