Put a cup of WHITE vinegar in it, shake it u and let it set for 20 minutes. Pour out 1/2 of the vinegar and replace it with water. Plug it in and it SHOULD melt the deposits away. If you still don't get pressure, clean the rim where the seal fits, with scotch brite or a good fine abrasive pad. You can soak the pad with vinegar to help the process.

Steam Vac Ultra five rotating brushes won't ****


ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN.

My h2o mop won't steam. How do i fix it?


If your H2O mop will not steam:
1. Ensure you have followed the operating instructions.
2. Ensure you have followed the troubleshooting instructions.

If the unit fails to produce steam:
3. Switch off the power at the outlet.
4. Look at the water reservoir. Inside you will see a flexible tube with a cone on the end. Tilt the unit or give it a gentle shake to submerge the cone in water.
5. With the cone submerged, switch on the power supply and follow the normal instructions. The unit should produce steam as normal.

Note: Unless the cone is submerged in water, the unit will not steam.

My Hometek Steam Penguin wont produce steam


Hi
I opened whole thing and found that no suction to the pump or pressure from the pump. Opened the clear box which contains the pump and the el-motor. Then I opened the white pump and found it was assembled wrong way round. There are two tiny one way silicon "valves" which should produce the flow of the water to the heater. I also wiped off part of the sticky grease away. Now it works. 4 hours work, but it was interesting to learn the function :) .

The mop just stopes making steam to the head. Could this be A heat coil problem? Also a lot of others have had This happen.


On these steam mops, you have to use distilled water, if you use tap water and do not have a house water softner or some kind of water filtration system, the water running thru the tubes of the steam mop
will develop calcium deposits, these deposits are caused by hard water and will clog up the tubes, and keep the mop from producing steam, then you will have to replace the lines. i own this brand of steam
mop and had the same problem you had, I replaced the lines and started using distilled water, and have not had any problems since and that was last year. good luck!

Heating up but not producing steam. Tank may be furred up as limescale deposits in water when tank emptied.


OK. This is an actual guaranteed solution to the Shark "No Steam" problem. The problem is well documented as hard water clogs the steam mops head. And using distilled water should prevent problem (not confirmed). But now that you have the problem, how do you unclog?

First off, Ive had two now. And my solution probably invalidates 1 year warranty, but I'm not interested in going through all the rigamarole of taking my mop back to the store. Maybe yours has expired or you want solution now like me.

This requires a drill. If you've tried the white vinegar route like me and it hasn't worked, and the toothpick, now it's time to get serious.

Remove the four screws. Then slide connection back and remove final two screws. Try blowing thru the small round hole at the end of the connector. If you can't blow through it, the smallest choke point near the hole is your problem.

Using the smallest drill bit in the standard drill set (not sure the size but it fits easily in the hole with room to spare) drill gently into the hole until it breaks thru the first resistance. Now blow through the hole. It should blow through easily now. Run some white vinegar thru to loosen up and remove other hard water deposits if you like.

Replace nozel. Replace two screws, Replace 4 screws. Done.

Use only bottled distilled water from now on would probably be a good idea.

In my opinion the problem is a design flaw built in by the Shark people. Appropriate name. Its called planned obsolescence. :( It breaks, you buy a new mop head (or entire mop if you can't find their part's website.)

My shark steam mop heats up but won't steam. help


Problem: mineral dleposits. Just fixed mine.... DO THIS OUTDOORS. Add 1/2 c CLR to the tank, let sit for an hour, turn on, allow to heat and pump. May have to refill with CLR and repeat. Be persistent, and eventually you'll blow out a wad of dissovled minerals followed, happily, by billows of steam. Again, do this outdoors and keep the mop pointed away from people, plants and things. (I aimed mine into a cardboard box.) Follow up with a couple of tanks of water and pump until empty to clean out any residual CLR and loosened deposits. (I continued to get some black precipitate through the first water cleaning.) I will add that I began this process first with white vinegar, then with Lime Away..no luck put perhaps I was not sufficiently persistent. Or perhaps it was the sequence of attempts. (Also, do not take off the mop head...the part to which you attach the pads...it's tough to get off, does not allow access to parts that need cleaning (thought it would, not not so), and practically impossible to get back on.)
Alternatively, call Shark...they'll offer to repair for $18 plus $10+/- shipping, or may offer you a new one at "preferred customer" rate of $39.95 plus shipping. Good luck, and please remember to try the CLR outside.
