Re: heats up but won't steam

I posted this in the problem section, but it's also a partial solution:
I removed all screws except the ones on the bottom (use a mini screwdriver) and took off all removable parts. I saw where the handle trigger presses a button (gold on my unit) which was stuck. I cleaned around the button, but it still stuck, so I used a bolt and hammer to hit the button. Good news--the unit now steams. Bad news--it's stuck in the open position and won't stop steaming while plugged in.

Re: heats up but won't steam

I found that my wife had used tap water which is from a well and that caused a buildup on piston which was stuck closed. I took the handle apart and sprayed some lube on it which freed it up.The piston only travels/opens up about an1/8 to a 1/16th of an inch. Hope this helps.

Re: heats up but won't steam

I have been told that you can use a can of WD40 and lubricate the hoses and nozzle.  Try this I hope it works.  I have a Scunci too, but I haven't had this problem yet, I got it almost 2 years ago.

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

Here is a tip that I wrote about the Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop and why it maynot be getting steam to the head...

Scunci steamer will not heat up

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.

My scunci steam cleaner has a white build up and is clogged. How can i clean it?

I had not used my scunci for a few months and now it is completely clogged. I tried vinegar over night and removed a lot of sediment, but it is still not working. My last shot was going to be to use lime-away. Any suggestions. All parts look in mint condition, but it just doesn't work.

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?
