Question about Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

Steam Tek mop doesnt steam anymore

I have a steam tek steam mop. Worked fabulously for about 6 months, then it stopped steaming very well. A small amount still comes out, but its not enough to clean the floors effectively. I tried putting vinegar thru it to see if it was calcium build up, but it didnt seem to help any. Maybe CLR? Im not sure, I dont want to put chemicals thru it and dammage it.
Help, id love to get it working again, and not have to buy a new one. :(

We had a similar experience. I opened the head to look if the steam line was clogged. There was no sign of dirt or calcium build up, so I opened up the body. Found that one of the heater wires had come loose. The connector, which is crimped to the wire, was charred. Could be a potential fire hazard!

I notice that a similar product marketed under the Thane brand has been recalled for wiring issues.

We will try to return this mop for a refund.
