Question about Black & Decker SV1000-4 SteamBuster Vacuum
Anything that calls for water usage, its best to use distilled water instead of plain tap water. Then you eliminate the chance for calcium buildup. (steam mops, small water foutains, humidifiers, fog bowls, etc)

Clean the tiny air inlet port on the water tank.

In my case, it was the water pump only that was clogged up. My hoses were clear, but the pump was not working at all.
I fixed it by removing both hoses from the pump and forcing some vinegar into it until it cleared out.

Take it apart, the heater is most likely plugged, use something small enough that you can put in the ports and clean them out. Once they are cleaned out, then use a mix of water and vineager, run that thru it for awhile to clean out the lines.

I used vinegar water solution half and half in water tank and put it on "steam" and after few minutes finally steam started coming out . Worked wonderfully.

On mine I had to disassemble the pump and clean the inside parts.
The piston had gotten some calcium build up on it and wasn't moving well.
