Ran into the same problem on mine just after using the steam, so it definetely wasn't clogged... hope this helps.

Just try running the expresso maker through a full cycle and then try the steam again. Not sure if the machine air locked or something, but the expresso cycle appeared to get the water flowing again and then it had no trouble producing steam.

Hope it works.

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

Stopped emitting steam


Mine started steaming from the top and a little plastic piece inside where the handle attaches to the wand cracked. I had to purchase an entire head and after one use it did the same thing again. It is a poorly made steamer with cheap plastic parts! Since it was out of warranty, I threw it in the dumpster!

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.

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.
