    Instructions for Scunci say DO NOT use vinegar or calcium remover products. They suggest spraying WD40. About to perform surgery on mine to repair but my 1st response was going to be vinegar soak until I read the directions (a product owners' last resort). I'll update w/progress.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Eureka Hotshot Enviro steamer

Remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the steamer, that holds the center panel on. (Not the screws that hold the whole bottom.) Use a needle the clear the steam holes. Soak the panel in white vinegar for a couple of hours and scrub with aa brush to remove the lime calcium deposits. Check the center hole that goes into the steam and make sure it is clear. Reattach the panel. If the panel does not fit snuggly (either end does not contact the base panel, add two more screws about an inch in from either side. I used stainless steal screws because of the consist moisture. Used screws that are no more than 3/4 on an inch long and about the same diameter as the two you removed.

SOURCE: is it okay to run

I wouldn't recommend the CLR. My suggestion is to run a cycle using white vinegar, the accepted standby for removing sediment and deposits in small and major appliances. I hope this helps. If it does, please rate my solution. Good luck!

My bissell spot lifter model 1716 won't spray water at all, how do i fix this?


ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

Is it okay to run CLR or vinegar through my steamer. We have really hard water and even though we have a water softener and use filtered water, my steamer seems to be clogged

Take off the 2 spray nozzles and blow thru them, they may be clogged. You ay also try running a mix of water and vinegar thru it to help clean out the lines. May have a bad pump.

Bissell Proheat does not spray water along cleaning brush. Seems to spray just down either side only.


Are the brushes turning? If not then that could be your problem. If they are, check the spray nozzles, they may be partially clogged. Try water a mix of vinegar and water thru it to see if it will unlog your kines and spray nozzles.

9200 sprays out of hose but out of floor


Try taking the tank off, remove the 2 spray nozzles and blow thru them to see if they were clogged. You could try running a mix of vinegar and water, sometimes that will open up any clogs. Is the knob on the floor setting?

Bissell power steamer turbo


Mine does that, too. Pushing down and wiggling the tank usually gets it going. Also, it doesn't seem to work when the soap bottle is low, even when the soap is turned off. I fill the bottle with water. It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged. Some people say the heating unit in the handle plugs up, particularly if you put soap in the water tank. I haven't dealt with this, but it should be easy to open the handle and bypass the heating unit.
