Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full

Trying to use the Polti Vaporetto 2400, the tank is full (2 liters) and the steam gun attached. It starts to heat up, but as soon as there is just a little bit of pressure, the water out light comes on and the pressure does not get any higher. There is very little spray comes out when the trigger is pressed, which stops after 1 second.
Found there was a fair bit of scale in the tank. Rinsed it out well, but this didn't fix the problem. Even tried filling with boiling water from the kettle and adding kettle descaler. Left it a while and rinsed out well. It hasn't helped.
Any suggestions? Thanks, Andrew

Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.

It is getting up to tempeture but it will not produce any steam


Your machine need to reach boiling point to produce stem? Then check if all the sustem is sealed other than the pip outlet gun and it should now operate with the gun trigger ( pull to operate, but only when the water within the vessel is boiling, producing steam)Hope this helps Regards Mike

Vaporetto 2400 no access to water tank


The threads have probably stuck together with limescale. Push down with reasonable force while turning the cap, like you would if you were trying to get in one of the childproof bottles. This should crack the limecale and allow you to take it off. Then descale the threads on the top and machine using kalstop or whatever you use.
