I didn't fix the problem but I did take the handle apart. There is a little metal piston that is pushed down by the button on the outside of the handle. It was very sticky and stuck in the off mode. I freed it when I took it apart but obviously it just stuck again. I am going to take the handle apart and see if a little WD40 will make it easier to push. Either that or glue it in the "on" position. I really love this appliance and if I can't fix it, I'll probably just buy something similar.

Yello steam mop does not make steam


The release lever is held in place by tabs molded into the base. You just need use a screwdriver or two to press the plastic tabs back and then push the release lever out. The new release lever can be just pushed into place and the plastic tabs will snap and hold it in place.

Shark s3601a no steam


Don't you have to push down on the handle while mopping the floor to get the steam to release. I know the one I have has a handle that slides down the shaft in forward mopping motion which releases the steam.

The unit heats up when plugged in, but there is no steam released out the bottom of the mop when the handle is pushed up and down.

Wheres the release button for the recovery tank located on model # 2591


There isn't one. Just pull the handle straight up. When you reinstall it be sure to push it in firmly. Mine gives a click. Otherwise water runs out the side.

It will not dispense water when you press the release button


I've had a problem with Bissells where the handle gets out of where it's supposed to be in the handle and causes the problem that you mention. If this is your problem, the handle will feel different and looser. Good luck!

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.


To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!

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.
