Likely you have used tap water and there is now mineral deposits blocking the flow. I posted a video on how to take it apart to clean it.

ALternatively, people have had success in putting CLR into the tank or Vinegar and pumping the unit and leaving it overnight in attempt to clear the blockage that way. I gave up and just took it apart and found a significant amount of mineral deposits blocking things up.

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: My Europro shark steam mop won't steam, light on but no steam.

Hard water deposits. I ran some white vinegar through mine, like a coffee maker, and it worked for a while, but clogged again. So I unplugged it, let it cool and turned it over in the bathtub and squirted a small amount of Lime-Away into the hole where the steam comes out. Let it soak for 5- 10 minutes and it is working like is is brand new.

Having problem with steam not coming out to do floors


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your Shark Steam Vac. One solution you can try is to create a solution of approximately 50% water and 50% CLR (calcium, lime, and rust).

Put the solution into the water tank of your vacuum and let it sit for awhile. Over time your vacuum may have developed a build-up of calcium which is blocking the pores that release the steam. This solution should break-down the calcium and allow steam to flow out of the vacuum.

If you do not have CLR on-hand, an alternative found in most kitchens that can be used is vinegar. Again, make a solution of vinegar and water and allow it time to sit in the tank attached to the vacuum. Then try running the machine.

You can purchase replacement parts for your Shark direct from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

If your not using distilled water the machine is probably loaded with mineral deposits from hard water and is plugged. you can try running some vinegar through it which may or may not work depending how plugged it is.
