SOURCE: Not steaming
Hi, it sounds like the steam trigger has a broken pin on the end inside the handle. Unplug the unit from the wall and let it cool. I found out that you can remove the main rubber cover by gently prying it up from the front and pivoting it up to the cord end and lifting it off. You will see the trigger snaps in, but look at the finger end going under the microswitch that activates the "Burst of Steam"...it is probably broken. You can get another one from California Electric Service in Concord CA; or you can epoxy a small 3/4" by 1/8" x 1/16" piece of aluminum, bent at 45 degs into trigger hollow, approx 1/4" sticking out to actuate the micro-switch and after a day or two for the epoxy to harden it should work just fine.

Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.

Remove the nozzle on the end of the steam wand, them open valve to see if the steam wand works, if yes use a paper clip to clear holes on nozzle, if no remove steam wand where it is connected to the valve then open wand(steam will be spraying be careful). If you have steam there then clean wand and nozzle.
