    This is the second unit that suddenly stopped turning on. I am in love with the product but extremely frustrated at the lack of reliablility. Don't know what to do with it now except throw it out and buy a third unit. Any suggestions?

    STEAMER STOPED WORKING AND LIGHTS ARE NOT ON

    I have the same problem with no light or steam. I do use distilled water.

    I have had two of the biggest ones they make. When the light does not come on or no steam is made, it appears to be an electrical problem with the power cord at the base of the unit. If, when filled and first turned on, the light does not come on, giggle the power cord at the base.. If the light comes on, you can either somehow tightly attach it to the handle with some sort of plastic tie that is sold in any hardware store. Otherwise it will happen no matter how many of these things you buy. When it works, it's a great product. If they want you to send it back they want you to pay the shipping and an addtional $16.00 so they can ship it back (if within the one year warranty). Not worth it.

Hi All
Shark steamer that the light is not on and will not heat up. I have found that there is a in line slow blow fuse in side. replace this fuse IF you can find one and the steamer will work. If you let the unit run dry and leave the unit on it will get hot and blow the fuse!
I am looking for the fuse myself. good luck! Dan FL.

    Hi All
    Up Date on shark no steam no light.
    The fuse that controls the steam is a thermal fuse, 192c ,10 am 250 volt.
    Now that may sound strange to some one who dose not know fuses, but Radio Shack carries them and there $3 bucks!
    If there is a handy person you know they should have no problem replacing the fuse. I just fixed ours in about 30 min. but I work on electronics. If the Shark gets to hot this fuse will blow to prevent overload or fire so don't put bigger fuse in it!!
    Fuse is cheaper then new one or shipping to factory!

Lights on but no steam and getting hot


In order to produce steam, you have to "pump" the steamer. After it heats up, pump it while moving it back and forth on the floor while mopping - it takes a few strokes to get the steam really rolling. I love mine - ;)
