Question about Euro-Pro Shark SC-505 Handheld Steam Vacuum
The steamer has been stored in attack for summer. The top will not unsrew. Have tried using pliers and it is stuck. Any tips?
My sister gave me hers that was stored in a humid storage unit--it still had water in it. What I did was hold down the pressure release trigger (with my leg against table top) then turned the top off with both hands, it wouldn't budge till I held the trigger(black). hope this helps, I am also looking for a manual for this little power house. so far I like it.

I had same problem, the brass threaded cap corrodes in the threads on the steamer making it impossible to unscrew. Mine had no water in it at the time, so I plugged it in until it heated up and was able to unscrew it with large channel locks. Be careful not to break the plastic cap. Do not leave plugged in for long, takes only a minute to heat it up to try unscrewing

I had the same problem. Mine had been stored for a year. We had to completely destroy the plastic cap. Once down to the metal underneath we did the boiling water thing. It didn't work at first so we tried it again. And then immediately after applying the boiling water we used ice water to make the metal contract. With pliers on the neck and pliers on the lid we were able to open it. But, I know my husband had to put some strength into it. Hope this helps you all!!!
