Dear jrider784,
I solved a problem like this on FIXYA, just a few months ago. I gave this solution. Try to fill the machine from somewhere else. You can do this from the outlet. If you manage to do this, put on the machine. ( now you know that when there is hot water in the machine, the tap goes round free for safety). Now as the water starts to cool down....start trying to see if you can unscrew it. My plan is that with the hot water, the safety will start to work again. If the cap does not release the safety on cooling, then there is no other way but to destroy the cap and replace with a new one. Very important to mention that this job must be done by a qualified technician or some one who knows what he is doing. Working with hot water is very dangerous.
Regards,
Fulltech.

    already have a severe burn, but will try to look for another way to fill the tank....perhaps it's underneath although seems unlikely as would be v. dangerous with all that pressure....no?

  • Martin Grech Mar 13, 2014

    Anything you do.....wait for enough time for the pressure or at least the temperature to get down. As I explained ..PRESSURE and TEMPERATURE are very dangerous. Do not attemt anything, if you are not sure or not competent to do so. If in doubt and cannot find someone to help you...THROW IT SAFELY AWAY!!!!! It is nothing compared to your health!!!!

Karcher sc 952 having problems with no steam coming out.


this machine uses an electrical solenoid to open the flow of steam from the heater..... the switch is in the hand trigger and the valve on the machine.... one of these is at fault

If you have a Karcher then you should always post your machines barcode.
The karcher barcode is on a silver sticker and is usually 15 digits long. Example 156987400000123 is actually model 1.569-874.0 and serial number 00123....

The brushes are not going round when the hoover is being used in upright position, there is no obstruction and the brush part has been cleaned?


Hi there,

Sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC15 All Floors. If you've already checked the cleaner head for obstructions and cleaned the brushbar, you may need to reset the brushbar. To do this, with the cleaner reclined into the vacuuming position, turn the suction motor on using red on/off switch, then press the silver switch next to the on/off switch twice. This should get the brushbar running again.

If you've tried this but have not been able to resolve your issue, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly. One of our experts will be happy to run through some troubleshooting over the phone with you, and recommend the best course of action. You can call us free on 08002980298 - our Helpline is open from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week. We'll look forward to hearing from you.

Maybe you have already solved the problem this late in the game. Manuals for Eureka products can be found on http://www.eureka.com. Your local hardware store will have a bunch of different sizes of plastic caps in the plumbing section normally used for capping pvc tubing. If the outlet is round like an upright I had a few years ago you can pop one of these on and it'll do the trick. The cap shouldn't be more than a dollar or two, plus if you ever do want to use the tools again you didn't do any permanent damage to the port. Hope this helps!
