SOURCE: Karcher SC 1502 steam cleaner can't get cap off water tank

Dear jrider784,
I solved a problem like this on FIXYA, just a few months ago. I gave this solution. Try to fill the machine from somewhere else. You can do this from the outlet. If you manage to do this, put on the machine. ( now you know that when there is hot water in the machine, the tap goes round free for safety). Now as the water starts to cool down....start trying to see if you can unscrew it. My plan is that with the hot water, the safety will start to work again. If the cap does not release the safety on cooling, then there is no other way but to destroy the cap and replace with a new one. Very important to mention that this job must be done by a qualified technician or some one who knows what he is doing. Working with hot water is very dangerous.
Regards,
Fulltech.

How can i fix my H20 mop x5 steam cleaner


see this causes, and use the common sense God bless you
nspect your steam cleaner's belts for loss or damage. Damaged belts can cause the brushes to stop rolling or the spray mechanism to stop functioning. To fix a damaged pump or brush belt, first unplug the steam cleaner. Refer to the user's manual to determine the specific location of each belt. Order a new belt directly from the manufacturer's website, or from a local home improvement store, if necessary.

I can't unscrew the plug on the water reservoir??


Same thing happened to me. The plastic cap gets "stripped" inside and won't catch to turn. I removed the plastic cap with a big wrench and a lot of muscle. Then used an adjustable to remove the metal screw-in plug. I still use it this way and put the metal cap on and off with a wrench. Just have to be very careful as it gets extremely hot.

My h2o mop won't steam. How do i fix it?


If your H2O mop will not steam:
1. Ensure you have followed the operating instructions.
2. Ensure you have followed the troubleshooting instructions.

If the unit fails to produce steam:
3. Switch off the power at the outlet.
4. Look at the water reservoir. Inside you will see a flexible tube with a cone on the end. Tilt the unit or give it a gentle shake to submerge the cone in water.
5. With the cone submerged, switch on the power supply and follow the normal instructions. The unit should produce steam as normal.

Note: Unless the cone is submerged in water, the unit will not steam.

Shark SV736R motorized brush won't rotate


The 2 metal pins of the motorized brush are not in contact with the vacuum cleaner. or the Motorized brush is clogged up. You have mentioned that it is cleaned, but still give a thorough inspection. For the metal pins, firmly insert the motorized brush into the air-intake nozzle. This will connect the motorized nozzle to the unit power supply.

Re: Low pressure on WhiteWing steam cleaner
1. Make sure the safety switch for the hose handle on the right side of the hose handle is turned to the closed position. To do that, push it away form the hose.
2. Make sure the steam release button (next to the on/off button on the control panel on the steamer) is in the Off position.
3. Make sure the safety cap is tightened.
4. Make sure you have enough water in the tank (at least half a bottle of water)
I hope this helps.

My steam cleaner is not spaying water on the carpet?


I found that if the water is not hot enough it won't create the suction needed for the water to spray. If you have use it in the past it could be that the water tubing could be clod.

Where is the belt located on my hoover steam shampoer


There is probably not a belt. The brushes on the carpet cleaner head and attachments work from air and there is a roller bearing deep inside that will wear out and the brushes won't turn. I've found no way to fix this. I consider it a design defect.

Deliming

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE

Type of Water Cleaning Frequency

Soft water every 80 brew cycles, Hard water every 40 brew cycles

Your espresso maker may be delimed using one quart of white household vinegar. Clean the water tank first, following steps l-5:

1. Make sure the steam control knob is in the center off position and that the plug is disconnected from the electrical outlet.

2. If the machine is cool and the pressure has been released, remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of undiluted white household vinegar into the water tank.

3. Screw on the pressure cap and allow machine to sit overnight with the vinegar solution in the water tank.

4. Remove pressure cap and discard vinegar through the top opening of the espresso maker.

5. Rinse the water tank thoroughly with tap water, repeating this step twice.

To wash internal parts:

Make sure you clean the inside of the water tank first. Remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of fresh white household vinegar into the water tank. Screw the pressure cap back on top of the water tank. Make sure the cap is on tight. Insert the filter holder into the brew head and place the glass decanter with lid on the drip tray. Plug the machine into the electrical outlet and turn the power switch on. An indicator light on the power switch will tell you the machine is on. Place a cup with cold water under the steam nozzle. When vinegar begins to flow into the decanter, insert the nozzle into the water and open the steam nozzle slowly by turning the steam control knob downward. After a few seconds, close the steam nozzle by turning the knob back up to center. This will clean any residue left in the nozzle from frothing milk. When all the vinegar has been pumped into the decanter and the flow has stopped, turn the power switch to the center off position and allow the machine to cool. Repeat steps 1-7 twice using only tap water to rinse any remaining traces of vinegar out of the machine.

Decanter cleaning

1. Pour warm white vinegar in the decanter and let soak for 20 minutes.

2. Discard the vinegar, Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a

soft cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners.
