Throw it out, get a hoover floormate, best machine I ever had. My Shark steam/vac now resides at the dump after steam clogging problems and not being able to remove the hose to blow it clear.

    remove all mop ending accessories on bottom of steam mop. Add vinegar to liquid insert. plug it in for at least 30 mins and you will see the vinegar get hot. Imagine cleaning a coffee pot and loosening all hard water build up. That is what you are doing. But when it finally starts steaming up and it might take longer than 30 mins plug in., then you have to add distilled water and let that steam out. When that steams out you will see a brownish residue coming out of end without the mop piece Add distilled water about 3 x or until water comes out clear, bc i learned the hard way. I have a brown mop piece of left over residue. good luck

I just bought a pre-owned Euro-Pro Shark SC-505 Handheld Steam Vacuum . It did not have instruction manuel and i don't know how to open lid to fill with water. is the lid on the top ? does it screww...

You should be able to screw it off with your hands. I know mine started getting harder and harder to take off, I guess due to hard water buildup because I made the mistake of using tap water. I ended up breaking it off with a wrench and now can't find one to replace it with so I am selling my attachments. If you end up getting it off, use something to clean the lime scale build up off of it and distilled water. If you can't get it off, you might have bought one that has been damaged. If you need some replacements parts, contact me.

I had the same problem. I was able to get it off using an adjustable rubber-loop "Grip Wrench". This is similar to an oil filter wrench but the loop is rubber._944.jpg_943.jpg

Your heater in the cleaner is either plugged or has quit working, make sure you are getting a good ground for the cleaner. you may want to check the ground pin on the cord and make sure it is not loose or broken.
