Why is vax s7-a+steam mop steamer dripping water and cuts on and off

I managed to fix mine after a little effort. It was blocked well up in the nozzle into a small pinhole where the steam comes out of the 'small kettle' in the steam mop.
To fix:
  • take the blue side bit off by unscrewing the two small screws
  • Undo the screws inside (there are about 11)
  • Once these were undone there was two screws holding the nozzle cover.
  • After unscrewing these pull the nozzle cover of and scrape limescale from inside the small hole where the steam comes out
  • Put it all back together and it should work much better
You should only really do this if you are competent as there are lots of wires etc. and if your steam mop is not covered under warranty as messing around with it will void this.

Hope this helps :)

How do I replace the power cord on an electrolux 8502A vacuum cleaner?

1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.

It is probably clogged with rust or limescale - can happen with steam cleaners. Sadly there's no way around this but to try a limescale remover in distilled water such as Calgon limescale remover. Fill the kettle as normal and give it time to boil up. Then release the steam as you would normally. You may find that the kettle will spurt out deposits of gunk. Sounds like its definately clogged though.

Scunci steamer will not heat up

Take the bottom off (Just break it after you get the two normal screws out), find the white wire from the element, bridge the offending fuse located under the special insulation, with a piece of wire, if you cant replace it, re assemble, and steam away. If the lack of that fuse worries you, don't do this, just pitch it.

Hi there!

It would certainly help if you said which model it was.

I can only give generic help now, and do the best I can for you.

Most plastic products rely heavily on moulded catches that click into grooves upon assembly. The screws are fewer in number, and tend to be centred in the assembly, or spaced at intervals around the periphery. This is the "belt & braces" method which works quite well.

With the screws out, press around the seam line to see if it will pop open at one of the clips, then chase the gap around to all of the clips. You may have to insert a spacer as you go so they don't snap shut again.

There may be hidden fasteners under labels, star lock springs, or solvent welding to make more money for the manufacturer who insists you buy a new unit instead, but with a little care, and seeing which parts are not moving - and finding out why, then you should do it.

Worse case scenario, you crack the casing and have to glue it, saving the expense of a new motor. - Usually worth it.

If this helps you, Please rate as Fixya!.. Much apreciated thanks.

Scunci steam cleaner not spraying steam

Unscrew the screw on the handle and remove handle. Remove rubber where top screws on. Remove two screws and the top and now unscrew the black pipe where the steam comes out. Now remove the button and see the small metal protrusion on the pot where the button was. Hit it with a hammer a few times softly to remove the scale buildup until the metal starts moving in and out again. I also sprayed it with a little silicone spray. Now put everything back together again. My steamer now works beautifully again!

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!
