SOURCE: Euro-Pro Shark hand held steam cleaner model #sc618hd

Your heater in the cleaner is either plugged or has quit working, make sure you are getting a good ground for the cleaner. you may want to check the ground pin on the cord and make sure it is not loose or broken.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Mop stopped producing steam while

In this unit the steam is generated by the boiling of a liquid. It doesn't matter what liquid: water, tea, wine, even gasoline - as long as it boils you can use it.
The heat needed to make the liquid boil is generated by a simple resistance controlled by a basic thermostat - if the temperature of the resistance goes over 100C the power to the resistance is cut. So in your case either the thermostat or, most likely, the resistance has failed.
Unfortunately there are no replacement parts for this unit - it's a use and junk device that is cheaper to replace than to repair. Sorry, time for a new one.

I have a vax steam mop it was working perfectly


possibly not heating if you have water and no heat it could be a problem with the heating cycle that allows the steam to work .
You need a technician to have a closer look at it. It could be something small like a wire off or it could be major like an element problem. Take it in & ask for a quote on getting your machine working again.

No more steam coming out.


The channel between the steam chamber on the pump side and the exit chamber of the steam chamber is probably plugged, I opened up the chamber at both ends and cleaned it out with CLR and a heavy wire.
