Question about Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum
The unit heats up but produces no steam. This is the second one it happened too. I returned the first one and now the second one doesn't work
This was an easy fix, actually. Take off the mop attachment and you'll see a little hole where the water/steam comes out. Use a toothpick and clean out that hole and it'll work good as new. NOTE: Be careful! I cleaned it while my unit was still warm and once the hole was clean, steam shot out and burned the s*&% out of me. I have a bad burn on my shoulder. Either wait until the unit is cold or makes sure you work from the side and wear goggles.

My problem was in the mop head itself where flexible tubing meets the plastic. I took out the 4 screws that connect the swivel mechanism, then the two that hold the flexible tube in place. Once that was free I could get a large straightened paper clip in the hole to break out the clog of mineral deposits.

SOURCE: shark steam mop
Well got one brought it home worked for five minutes. Went back to walmart exchanged my Shark.Only one box left,looked opened but nothing seemed out of place till I got it home.Must have beeen a previous return somebody was short a funnel for their meth.lab(lol).Now warranty or not have tod to take it apart and see.There is a line that looks like it has a tendency to come off it has a spring inside it.Looks like it just blew apart because of pressure (poor design) Going to reattach it see what happens.

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.
