Low power from steam mop


Try to be a little more vague! Model? Age of steamer? Rate of use?...Try a couple of drops of vinegar in with the water you use to fill your steam mop. The heating element that heats the water is probably oxidized, especially if you use tap water to fill it. You should only use distilled water in these mops. Some lower end steam mops have a handle that compresses, as you push the mop forward, which essentially makes the mop steam more, the more you "pump" the handle. Hope this helps!

Gets super hot but steam won't come out.


i have a simular steamer made by a different company. it used to work when i had first gotten it, but i think one time that i had plugged it in for a long period of time without using it has caused the plastic parts under the trigger that releases the steam flow to melt. so now the steamer that i have still heats up really hot but when i try to push the button it does nothing, no steam will come out of it at all... so i think my mistake was plugging it in without using it for too long, making it now inoperable basically garbage. sorry to say

I have a turbosteamer 220 hand steamer. It heats up but won't spray steam


It's most likely the trigger not engaging the piston that releases the steam. Due to the fact that the plastic inside the 220 holding the trigger in place has cracked on both sides.It will need to be taken apart.That's another issue.Be easy on the trigger press down gentle.....

Hi,
Vinegar will not hurt it...
The heating element may have died or there is an obstruction...

Does not give steam.


Actually there was no category for clothes steamer, and before entering information I was prompted to pick a category so I chose vacuums hoping that when my problem was diagnosed it would be understood that the problem is a clothes steamer that has stopped giving off steam. Please help if you can. I appreciated your time.

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.

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.
