Leaks steam underneath when heating up and then big puddle of water afterward. NO leaks when turned off. Steam does not come out of the nozzle. Could something be blocking it?

SOURCE: McCulloch Steam Cleaner Problem

I have a similar problem but the light is not even coming on. This was a refurbished unit and the retailer sent a replacement so I can get into the broken one and see what's there.
Anyone have any ideas on how these work? Is it just off/on or are there saftey switches/fuses/breakers etc?

Repair Polti VT Evolution steam cleaner doesn't work


Steam nozzle/lines are probably clogged. The minerals in the water will eventually clog up the system, you need to use only Distilled water whenever possible to eliminate as many minerals from the water as you can. If the screws are spinning and not coming out, you will have to pry up slightly on the cover the put pressure on the inner parts so they will come apart. Easiest way is to push something like an old credit card betwen the seams and pry up carefully. go slow and easy so you won't break anything.

Try taking the steam head apart and cleaning. If difficult to remove, fill a basin with white vinegar & a small amount of water and let it soak to remove the built up deposits in the system. Remember to only use distilled water when steaming to avoid build up.

Water heats up but no steam comes out


Make sure the nozzle where the steam comes out is not clogged. Minerals in tap water may clog it cause it's very small opening.

Is there a trigger handle to turn off and on


no betty, stupid bit of kit imo, no operating switch, just on/off at the switch, which heats the water up. i measured 500ml of water heated using my kettle, put the top on, switched on, and waited. first time the steam didn't come out of the nozzle, so i removed the end and cleaned the nozzle with water, blew down the end from the big end, and replaced it, steam came out. big grumble though, the steam coming out is not that warm, don't advise you to, but i directed against my fingers, it's only hot at the exit of the pointing bit, used it to try and clean floor tiles and grout, complete waste of time. i wouldn't advise anyone to buy one.

The steam is to comeing out of the nozzle but underneath the machine


You will need to check to see if there is a break in the steam track so a physical examination of the leak with an investigation into the steam track will needed.
Check for block in the nozzle track to confirm.

No steam release


I solved the problem, the metal (hot!) release rod gets stuck & needs a little push.
Unfasten the top by prying off the rubber gasket after removing the top. Remove the 2 small phillips screws, then remove the front that holds the nozzle, & remove those 2 phillips screws.
Carefully pry up the top with a putty knife, inside you will see the tip of a metal piston that the plastic release knob is supposed to contact. Set it on its front, & soak the piston with a light household or sewing oil, giving it a few taps with a blunt object occassionaly to loosen, heat up & test before reassembling, but remember, the piston is very hot. When you push on the piston with a screwdriver, it should release the steam, but also stop when you let go. Work with it a little & it will come back to life.
