I have a clogged Shark super steamer.

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.

Thank you

    no steam when trigger is pressed. Don't see a clog, red light is on, and unit is hot, but no steam.

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.

    With you both tapping this golden colored button made of metal is attached to a golden nut. when this is loose, you will loose pressure. Titan it up with a spanner "properly". Another reason it may mal-function would be the build up of calcium deposits (which build up fast with "hard" water). I have half filled the main unit with vinegar and left it for about 12 to 15 hours. Plugged it in and let it boil away for about 20 minuites. I then pressed the trigger on the end of the hose and I got some pressure coming out, but not allot. I kept on repeating this until I retrieved the appropriate pressure. It is now fully working. Treat this gadget like your household kettle and it should serve you well..... :-)

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?

Gets super hot but steam won't come out.


i have a simular steamer made by a different company. it used to work when i had first gotten it, but i think one time that i had plugged it in for a long period of time without using it has caused the plastic parts under the trigger that releases the steam flow to melt. so now the steamer that i have still heats up really hot but when i try to push the button it does nothing, no steam will come out of it at all... so i think my mistake was plugging it in without using it for too long, making it now inoperable basically garbage. sorry to say

I believe the steam may be trapped in steamer, as it isnt steaming up like usual, just acts like a wet mop. Is is clogged? Maybe because I didn't use distilled wwater?
