Power steamer pro series 1697

I have many problems with my steamer. I have done everything that could be done, I refuse to bring it in to be repaired again. Used onkly 3 times.
Does anyone know how to get the bottom of my cleaner off. Its the gray cover on the bottom. I'm good at repairing and would like to go a bit further trying to solve my problem. Thanks

    Sorry those links did not work, From the top there are 6 screws to take off, then remove the flow indicator cap, the top will come off. Maybe this picture will help.

Steamer has quit steaming. I have not used distilled water (didn't know I was suppose to. It seams to be stopped up.


Any device that actually makes steam should use distilled water. You are boiling away the water to make steam. Everything in the water that is not water will remain in your 'boiler'. So, what to do now ... treat it with vinegar. Vinegar should disolve the minerals left in your boiler.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Screw top not coming off


If you look under the black plastic cap (between the bottom lip of the cap and the yellow steamer body) you should see a circular hole in the pressure valve that the plastic cap is attached to. I used a flat blade screwdriver and a hammer to tap it anti-clockwise, the whole filler cap could then be removed.
Putting sone lubricant (plumbers lube or vaseline) stopped this happening again.
By the way, you just need to tighten the filler cap finger tight.
Hope this helps.

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.

Scunci steam cleaner not spraying steam


Unscrew the screw on the handle and remove handle. Remove rubber where top screws on. Remove two screws and the top and now unscrew the black pipe where the steam comes out. Now remove the button and see the small metal protrusion on the pot where the button was. Hit it with a hammer a few times softly to remove the scale buildup until the metal starts moving in and out again. I also sprayed it with a little silicone spray. Now put everything back together again. My steamer now works beautifully 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!
