Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I filled my shark up and plugged it in. I immediately got very hot and spit boiling water on my leg from the top. Stream didn't come out of the bottom, the body of the steamer where the water goes got so hot it would burn your hand. Did it short? I've only had it one year and don't use it often?

SOURCE: Water leaking

The water tanks on this unit have had a very bad history of leaks. Most of the repair people had never heard of this unit, but one did, and had a spare set of tanks. If the unit is still under warranty, it is worth your while to get a replacement unit. Call Eureka, and ask them how to get a replacement unit, especially if you are having more than one issue with the unit (such as leaking, no heat, broken upholstery nozzle, etc.). I had success in sending back the serial number plate and a detailed list of my problems. They sent me a new unit, and I was able to get at least one unit working properly. Some repair men may be able to fix leaks in the seals on the tank. Hold the tank up and if it leaks, well you got your problem! Eureka will not solve your problem, I've discovered they like to let their service depots handle their junk. Most service depots can give you a solution if they are worth their salt. If the service depot can still get tanks, go that direction. If no replacement tanks are available, call Eureka for a whole unit.

You didn't give a model number so I'll tell you both methods. The F5xxx and F6xxx models have a cap at the top of the clean water tank that doubles as a measuring cup. The cap is about 3 inches in diameter. Fill the cap to the fill line with shampoo and dump it in the tank. Then fill the tank with hot (Not Boiling) water.
The F7xxx series has a 2 section tank. The large section is for hot (Not Boiling) water. The smaller section is for shampoo. Fill the smaller section with shampoo and the Steam Vac will mix the water and shampoo for you in the proper proportion.

Can't get it open


had same problem. Tried pouring boiling water over cap and it seemed to loosen some so I boiled more water and put the steamer top down in a bowl in the kitchen sink and pour the boiling water in and let it sit about 5 minutes. It came loose with some effort. The grooves are the opening are metal and they had started to corrode.Once open coat with wd40.

Can't get the top unscrewed


I had the same problem. Mine had been stored for a year. We had to completely destroy the plastic cap. Once down to the metal underneath we did the boiling water thing. It didn't work at first so we tried it again. And then immediately after applying the boiling water we used ice water to make the metal contract. With pliers on the neck and pliers on the lid we were able to open it. But, I know my husband had to put some strength into it. Hope this helps you all!!!
