SOURCE: Vinegar

Do not add anything to the tank.... Vinegar is corrosive and that would potentially be very bad.

How to get steam out Clogged h20 mop


Put vinegar in it and let it sit for several hours. Then turn it on to heat the vinegar. It should start to sputter and you may see some material ejected. This is good. Now dump out the vinegar and fill with water, make steam and let it push out any more material that caused the clog. You may have to do this several times in order to get the vinegar smell out.

Shark Steam Pocket Mop Cleaning Problems


After watching Shark Steam Pocket Mop from the vantage point of Fixya.com for a few months and seeing the many problems that people were having with the Shark Steam Mop streaking their floors and especially hardwood or laminate flooring I decided to do some research and reading about this problem.

What I found was very interesting.

Many people are blaming the steam mop for their problems, when in fact the problem is just coming to light because of the use of the steam mop. It seems that if other cleaners have been used on the floors they leave behind a residue. Then you come along with this mop that produces a heated steam type cleaning and you start to take this residue off of the floors. This then leaves the flooring blotchy or streaking.

So now what do you do with you floors when you get this mop and what will cure your streaking, blotchy floors? There are a couple of ways....

First way is to just keep on using the mop. Many people report that their persistence has paid off and that after a few uses the shine comes back to their floor as the old scum and residue is more completely removed.

The second way is to use a vinegar and water solution to manually clean the flooring before using the mop. This takes a bit more elbow grease, but will get the floor looking really sharp much quicker. Here is a site that tells about that.

So if you are having a heart attack because your mop seems to be making things worse instead of better then don't give up too quickly!! Use it a few times first... it has a 1 year warranty. Or get on your knees with that pail of vinegar water and get the old gunk from all those other cleaners off of your floor first.

The Shark mop gets warm but does not produce steam. This is the second mop I have owned. Bought a new one as I had the same problem with the first.


Just a guess, but I think you have hard water problems. Pour some vinegar into the mop, heat it, allow to cool, pour it out, rinse, repeat. Afterwards, use distilled water if available, otherwise, after every 5 - 10 uses, use the vinegar to remove the minerals from the heating elements. Let us know if this works!

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.

The mop just stopes making steam to the head. Could this be A heat coil problem? Also a lot of others have had This happen.


On these steam mops, you have to use distilled water, if you use tap water and do not have a house water softner or some kind of water filtration system, the water running thru the tubes of the steam mop
will develop calcium deposits, these deposits are caused by hard water and will clog up the tubes, and keep the mop from producing steam, then you will have to replace the lines. i own this brand of steam
mop and had the same problem you had, I replaced the lines and started using distilled water, and have not had any problems since and that was last year. good luck!

My grey & purple steam mop is getting very little steam at the head. is there a way to clean it without damaging the product? or is there another solution for low steam?


Mixing white vinegar with water about a cup of vinegar and a cup of water ratio and let it steam through the mop. This is also good for steam irons and other appliances such as coffee/tea makers. The acetic acid in the vinegar will dissolve the calcium build up that blocks the steam ports and will not hurt plastic or floors. If you object to the vinegar smell, then mix a little lemon juice with the last cup of water and this rids you of the vinegar smell. I use the white vinegar to mop the wooden floors in the house.

My shark steam mop heats up but won't steam. help


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.
