Steam cleaner ek8005


It would be most helpful to at least post the brand name of the unit, and you obviously have a computer, run a search for the parent company, call them and ask if replacement parts are available. If so, can you get a new switch. That simple.

I'm looking for replacement parts for tristar sb ek-8005.steam buggie. I bought it many years ago on hsn. Thanks for your help! karen USA


Sorry for the delay in responding. I have done many searches and also contacted the maker of Tri Star vacuum products; they did not market the Tristar Steam Buggy.

Before you consider investing more money in your machine you may like to view this video:At this point the only source of replacement parts is likely the secondary or used market. If you search you will find some products offered in places like ebay. For example:

Can you disperse a water and vinegar mixture with the steam buggy, without causing damage to any part of the unit? can you disperse a water and bleach mixture with the steam buggy, without causing damage...


If you do this the vinegar will likely disperse hard water scale as it cleans the inside of the element. While it shouldn't stain anything it will likely cause sputtering as it breaks down the scale. If your goal is to clean and disinfect a surface that is vinegar friendly, I would consider taking the extra step of spraying the surface with a spray bottle with the vinegar. Bleach in steam might puff back at you in a cloud and burn your eyes and skin so be VERY cautious on the bleach.

How do i get hoses off in order to unclog them


Once you remove them, they will leak. To flush them, just put plain water into the tank and run it through.

Steam escapes Steam Buggy


I've faithfully used by little yellow Steam Buggy to clean tight corners in my replacement windows and was always to get them looking new again and many other small places that needed blown out with steam when wiping or even scrubbing with a toothbrush doesn't work. I started to use it today and the steam started to come out around the black cap. After searching for a solution on the net I was very disappointed to find everyone else was having the same problem with no real solution. I had my hubby look at it and he said the gasket was worn and slip an o-ring on top of the gasket and now it back to working fine.

Just wanted to pass it along. A 10cent O ring will fix it.
