Question about Heating & Cooling
If that unit has a steam valve I'd suggest checking it to ensure it's not stuck open. If it is, the steamer will not build pressure also. Should be a gauge for tank pressure that will show if it has built up pressure. If the valve is stuck open, it may certainly just dump water instead of steam. It's possible the water level sensors are allowing too much water into the tank, and as a safety it dumps. I've changed steam valves quite often due to the amount of heat they have to deal with.

SOURCE: no heating from Mr slim
P8 refers to outdoor protection device activation usually caused by low gas charge or blocked condenser coil. any good a/c company can resolve this for you. however please note that if it is gas related a pressure test must be carried out to determine where that potential leak may be and that can be very costly.

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.

I would suggest putting a condensate pump in the reservoir, find the tube that empties the water into the reservoir and direct that into the pump. You can run tubing from the pump to a sink or any other drain in the house that is convenient. Putting the pump inside the reservoir is a safe guard in case the pump fails, the water will fill and turn the unit off instead of flooding the floor. It would actually probably trip your breaker once the water hit the voltage on the pump but always better safe then sorry. Check out these pumps at amazon, you don't need anything fancy.

If you have located the probe or sensor, then it is usually possible to remove it and yes you can get replacement sensors at any refrigeration shop
