Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
When I press the trigger button down I do not get any steam. I have already tried using a paperclip to unstuck the nozzle, with no luck.
I have had a Shark Steam Mop for about 8 months now & all of a sudden it stopped producing steam. I was using it this past weekend & it produced steam as usual then all at once it stopped. When I push down on the handle to make the steam, it does nothing. No sound or steam. I have always used distilled water as well. Any ideas? Could it be clogged. The unit doesn't appear to get very warm now either. Thanks!

I had the same problem with mine and just fixed it yesterday.
take off the lid
lift the rubber seal and remove the screws
remove screws & black cover where attachments go on
the place that the trigger pushes to push out steam is a goldish colored button made of metal
i tapped mine with a hammer and it works perfectly again
although a 'friend' stole my hose and i can't figure out how to replace it, so mine is pretty useless. i can't figure out how to contact the company.

Solution #2 is right on, all you need to do is free up the rod by removing the 2 screws in the front and the two on top, use a pair of snap ring pliers to get the odd screw loose. Once it is all open, move back and forth with a hammer and punch, spray some lube and it should be fine. Only use distilled or bottled water and leave the top off when not in use.

I am trying to "unclog" a shark hand held steamer. I removed the end cap, pulled off the rubber stopper on the top and removed the one phillips head screw. However, the other screw is different looking...not a phillips head. How do you removed this in order to tap on the metal chamber?
