Ok, this may sound silly, but do you need to push down on the cap to get it off? Just a thought.

I cant unscrew the filler cap for my polti 950


I had the same problem with the 2400 model, because the filller cap is a safety cap it thought there was pressure in the tank so wouldnt unscrew just kept going round and round. It had a little water it it. I switched it on heated it up then switched it off and let it cool a bit. There was a small metal bolt on the underside of the tank which I could unscrew with a alan key. This let the pressure out, I then rinsed it out with cold water and hey presto the safety value released itself. hope this helps

Vaporetto 2400 no access to water tank


The threads have probably stuck together with limescale. Push down with reasonable force while turning the cap, like you would if you were trying to get in one of the childproof bottles. This should crack the limecale and allow you to take it off. Then descale the threads on the top and machine using kalstop or whatever you use.

It should go just below the red providing steam isn,t escaping from the cap otherwise you won,t get the pressure build up to enable it to come out when you pull the trigger

NO STEAM EVEN THO THE DIAL GOES RIGHT UP TO THE RED


Hi i've had the same problem Put a phial of Kal stop into 1000 or 1500ml of water into the tank, let it heat up and it should break down the limescale of the solenoid. It's worked for me. Have a good evening;-)

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full


Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.
