Scunci steamer will not heat up

Yesterday I used the scunci steamer and it worked great. I followed the instructions carefully. over night it was empty. this morning i put the measured water in, put cap on, put attatchment on, and plugged it in. I've tried this SEVERAL times today and each time the little red light comes on but it doesn't heat up. What is wrong with it?

    I have the same problem. Will not heat up. My husband has disassembled it only to discover that it is a blown fuse however, not knowing the amps he cannot locate a new fuse. Does anyone know the amperage of the unit?

Take the bottom off (Just break it after you get the two normal screws out), find the white wire from the element, bridge the offending fuse located under the special insulation, with a piece of wire, if you cant replace it, re assemble, and steam away. If the lack of that fuse worries you, don't do this, just pitch it.

    This worked but should I be concerned the fuse is missing?

    Harold, I followed your instructons and my scunci still won't heat the water. It hasn't even had more than 2 or 3 hours of use at the most. I'm so disappointed. Is it just trash or do you have anymore suggestions?

That phone number is on my manual too but does not go to scunci customer service. Its a marketing line that tries to sell you things, tells you that you win a cruise, then if you don't push the number to accept cruise (for a fee of course), the line disconnects. Scunci, where are you?

probably full of scale in the nozzle and element common from using tap water. Purchase a product called scale clean insert and flush. Scale clean is available at department stores for home coffee makers.

Scunci instruction manual


This is the biggest run around! We all should be able to find a manual on the internet for this scunci? I have waisted more time trying to locate the instructions and end up in the same place everytime which is nowhere. Does anyone no where to find it? This is also dangerous and a liability not to have instruction manuals available. We are trying to get it to work and not having any luck. We can't even get the lid off.

Scunci ss1000 handheld steamer


My Scunci MS 1000 heats and builds up steam, but the steam does not release from the spout when the release button is pushed. Plenty of pressure is built up inside (escapes when cap is opened). What is the problem?

Scunci steam cleaner not spraying steam


Unscrew the screw on the handle and remove handle. Remove rubber where top screws on. Remove two screws and the top and now unscrew the black pipe where the steam comes out. Now remove the button and see the small metal protrusion on the pot where the button was. Hit it with a hammer a few times softly to remove the scale buildup until the metal starts moving in and out again. I also sprayed it with a little silicone spray. Now put everything back together again. My steamer now works beautifully again!
