SOURCE: How does it work?

Most units of this type make steam by heating water that is placed in a canister. Other than the place you attach the "hose", there should be only one other place on the body of the unit that opens up... that's most probably where the water goes in. Put water into a measuring cup, graduated cylinder, filling to known point. Then pour water into unit until 1/2" below fill hole. Note on measuring cup how much you used. This is the unit's capacity. Put "lid" or "cap" back on, plug unit into wall and wait a little while. Voila! Steam.

The steam comes out of the water reservoir cap instead of the steam Jet Nozzle.


I can only guess since I have never worked on one of these units, but I think you lost a gasket on the cap. Pressure must build in the reservoir before being forced out the nozzle.

Steam buggy inlet cap will not unscrew it just keeps on turning


I had same problem, but after fiddling with the top for a while, after it had gone cold, some slight movement occurred, and I was able to gently unscrew - I've also greased the thread - I think there seems to be a grub screw which might need tightening. good luck

Steam coming out cap not nozzle. doesnt seem to be plugged anywhere


When it's under pressure, the steam has to go somewhere.

If you can be sure that there aren't any blockages in the nozzle (maybe even go so far as to poke a sewing needle in each of the holes), AND that there isn't a blockage in the hose,
then there's a chance that the cap gasket is missing, split, or worn.

Write back if this doesn't solve your problem...

Steam leaking from screw cap. can i get a new one?


you dont need a new steam cap if steam is coming out of the top, that is supposed to happen when the hose is clogged, it would be very dangerous if that didnt happen, the amount of pressure that thing holds is unreal if you think your cap is leakin steam take a second look. if the cap is not physically damaged then it should be working fine, 9 times out of 10 your hose is clogged

Screw top not coming off


If you look under the black plastic cap (between the bottom lip of the cap and the yellow steamer body) you should see a circular hole in the pressure valve that the plastic cap is attached to. I used a flat blade screwdriver and a hammer to tap it anti-clockwise, the whole filler cap could then be removed.
Putting sone lubricant (plumbers lube or vaseline) stopped this happening again.
By the way, you just need to tighten the filler cap finger tight.
Hope this helps.
