Portable steamer sc500

I just bought this item, second hand and it seems as if the previous owner 1-either put soap in it and let it seat for years or 2-the previous owner left it seating with hard water for years... Black and white particles come out the top when I put water in it and pour out and when trying to use it the steam comes out and leaves white spots everywhere... Im thinking of buying "lime-a-away" and trying to clean it, not sure if that would work. Any other suggestions?

The other thing you can use is call CLR to clean it. CLR should not be allowed to sit too long though. IT will corrode metal.

Testimonial: "Yes I thought about CLR. How long do you suggest I leave it in? Should I dilute it?"

  • Brad Brown Apr 02, 2014

    I would leave it in for about 4 hours. You can dilute it 50/50.

    Right! Thats done. I bought the bath and kitchen CLR and put it in the steamer for a few times (+/- 10 mins each time) it sems to have gotten most of it out and IM quite happy now I might try doing it again for longer since I know theres still more calcium build up in the steamer still. but for the moment I m happy with it. Thanks for the suggestion.

What year is my scooter

Neil is right, the serial number is on the seat support. From that the year can be determined. It's mostly moot, as Pride only has a 1 year warranty, and after that, it Parts and Labor. Why are you asking?

Bought a used one need to wash the cover

Hi there, I would hand wash it. Sunlight soap is the best and give it a good soak and rub with your hands and the marks should come out. DON'T put it in the washing machine, so many websites say just machine wash but I don't recommend it. I saw someone trying to sell a second hand hood once and it had completely skewed out of shape. They don't take long to wash/ rinse until water clean and squeeze hard and dry in the shade. Don't put any cleaning substances/ upholstery cleaners on it, Sunlight soap is the all time favourite for this sort of thing and gets most marks out. If you don't know what Sunlight soap is then any pure soap or baby friendly detergent/ washing soap would do (any with a picture of a baby on it.

My car over heats and there is no crack in the radiator no hoses leak whats the problem

1.Could be that the radiator cores are partially plugged. If the antifreeze isn't changed yearly, the sediment buildup can clog those cores. 2.If you bought the car second hand, it could be that the previous owner used some sort of Stop Leak. A really Bad Move, as this junk collects in places it shouldn't, and causes hot spots, (In the engine block, cylinder heads, and so forth),clogged radiator cores, and doesn't always work. I have found unreputable radiator shops who state they have cleaned the radiator out inside it, but just painted the outside, and made it look good. 3.Might be a cracked cylinder head from previously overheating. However, if you're not seeing any apparent coolant loss, and the oil level seems to be overfull,you can rule this one out.
