Dirt Devil Easy Steamer Deluxe

When I use my Dirt Devil Easy Steamer and I pull the trigger to release the cleaning solution, the solution comes out like it is supposed to, but it doesn't stop when the trigger is released. I took it apart and just can't figure out how the trigger assembly is supposed to work.

Follow the plastic extension that runs from the trigger through the length of the handle. This requires more disassembly that at just the trigger. At the end of the plastic extension you will find a triangular-shaped "ramp" that pushes against a "button" plunger that opens the valve that releases solution. When you release the trigger, the triangular ramp retreats and the plunger is supposed to be pushed back out by an internal spring in the valve. This plunger sticks because of accumulated soap from evaporated solution. Try cleaning that valve and plunger by running clean, hot water through the system OR replace the valve. In the future ALWAYS thoroughly flush the system with hot, clean water after using the machine.

Dirt devil carpet steamer diverter valve not releasing for furniture attachment


Hi there! If the trigger or valve are sticking this can be an indication that the valve may be clogged with soap residue. Try soaking the trigger end in warm water for a few hours. When you use the hose again, be sure to prime the trigger by pumping it about 30 times then squeezing it for 30 seconds to get the solution to flow. Hope this helps!

Why will my Dirt devil easy steamer not releasing cleaning solustion


Hi! You may need to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. To prime the trigger recline the handle and pump the trigger vigorously about 30 times. Power the cleaner on and hold the trigger in for 30 seconds. Be sure you are only using the Dirt Devil cleaning products intended for use with this machine. Using something other than the specified detergent can clog the lines that deliver the solution. If your cleaner still isn't dispensing you can take it in to a Dirt Devil authorized service center for repair. I have included a link where you may go to locate a service center near you. Hope this was helpful!

Hello! You may need to prime the trigger to get the solution to start flowing. To do this, recline the handle and pump the trigger about 30 times. Then, turn the cleaner on and hold the trigger in for 30 seconds. The solution should begin to dispense. Be sure you are only using the cleaning products specified for use with this unit.

Dirt devil easy steamer need directions to use


Thank you for responding to my question. I should have spent some time really looking at my little machine. It wasn't hard to figure out -once I found and read the back of the cleaning solution bottle and tried my luck following the water to cleaner ratio.. Opening, adding the cleaning solution and water and re-closing the reservoir was pretty easy. Everything worked out fine...and my carpet is...spotless. Thank you, Cmarie

Too much water coming out.


When you press the trigger an angled piece on the end of the plastic rod attached to the trigger pushes valve button in that then releases fluid. On releasing the trigger, the valve button is supposed to be pushed back out by an internal spring. The button gets sticky with evaporated cleaning fluid and does not come back out, causing fluid to continuously run. Try taking the machine outside, fill the tank with very hot water, pull the trigger, and let the clean, hot water flow through the valve. Perhaps it will free up. If not, the valvle will have to be replace. Either way, once it is working, ALWAYS flush the entire system with hot, clean, clear water to remove any cleaning solution in the system or it will only clog again
