Can not turn on the steam mop


I was able to turn on the steam mop, but no matter how hard I pumped the handle... no steam. Someone here said to put vinegar into the water bottle. I realized that they were saying particles from the water could have formed and clogged the steam tube. First, make sure your steamer is OFF!! Turn the steamer upside down as though you were putting a new pad on, Use a slender object to clean out the tubing where the steam comes from. Again, I will say... make sure your machine is off before you attempt this.. Otherwise, when you clean out the tubing the object will become a bullet flying thru the air and can hurt you, Hope this works

Mr Coffee Pump Espresso machine not working. Lights alternately flash between coffee and steam icons, machine makes noise, but coffee does not brew, water does not flow, steam does not come out.


The espresso portion may be clogged with hard water deposits, and the steamer tube with casein. Run a tank of plain white vinegar a couple of times then run a couple of tanks of plain water to flush the vinegar, Open the steam valve while the espresso portion is running and set the steamer pot under the steamer. Don't be surprised if a long white tube of hard white material slides out of the steamer valve. That's the casein, actually a form of organic plastic.

I have a Krups coffee/espresso maker, with a milk steamer. It makes great coffee and espresso; however, the steamer is not working. It is not clogged; I cleaned the handle with a fine needle, and water...


There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.

DeLonghi EAM3400 Magnifica with broken steam spout


No offense to Irishwarrior but the answer to your question is yes, you can buy a replacement. Call Delonghi. The inner sleeve has a flat spot on the back that matches up with the steam wand. No glue, and o ring holds it in place, either the o ring is worn out or the hole in the bottom of the sleeve is partially clogged creating more pressure than the resistance of the o ring. A paper clip straightened out will "****" it out. If you need to replace the whole steam wand arm you would want to order a new "tap" valve. Delonghi can give you the # of an authorized service center where you can order one (Delonghi will not sell you "internal" parts)

Scuncii Steamer


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.

IS8100 Commercial Steamer is leaking water


Try "cleaning it" with vinegar. It could be clogged with calcium carbonate. Replace the water with a potent solution of white vinegar and water and operate the unit until the vinegar solution is used up. I use 100% of the supermarket white vinegar and avoid breathing in the "steam." Repeat the procedure once or twice with plain water. If this works, let me know.
