Check the handle. There is a Button which you press and hold and one which slides up and down. The slide button is so you don't have to depress the other button (when you are wanting constant steam, ie., for cleaning floors etc...).

I would suggest that the slide button is engaged (meaning in the on position), slide it back the opposite way and see if this solves the problem. Regards, Tina

Make sure you don't fill it up too much. Use the measuring jug (about 6oz). Should be ready to go in 4 or 5 mins.

You didn't specify which model you had, but I assume it's the newer Eureka Enviro Steamer Model 313A.

I have an electrolux Enviro multi steamer which I was using this morning. I turned the steamer off for approximately 1 1/2 to do some shopping, and when I turned it on again, the steamer light turned on...


Problem fixed itself. Turned off for couple of hours so unit can cool down completely and when I turned it back on it started working 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!
