    I've sorted it out thank you. I put some Kal Stop (5ml) into 1500ml of water into the Polti, let it heat up and it's broken down the limescale build-up on the solenoid. Hope this helps anyone else having a similar problem. Have a good day ;-)

    You can purchase the Kal Stop from Polti. It's well worth the money. Mine came with 2 free phials.

I added a phial of KalStop which is biodegradable to 1000ml of water put it in the tank, turned on the appliance and let it come up to temperature. Then I operated the steam switch on the wand and voila after a few more spluttery spurts, it started producing steam again and even better than before. Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem and before throwing out the Polti or paying £79 to have the solenoid cleaned by the manufacturers.

Hi, It is the solenoid that is sticking, It there fore needs opening up, the solenoid valve stripping and cleaning, or replace at a cost of about £12 then putting back together. they don,t like being left and not used. It is possable if you keep clicking for it to start working again.

No steam polti 2001r, heats up clicks, but no steam!!!!!!


the solenoid valve isn,t operating when you pull the trigger. It is caused by either the coil has burnt out on the solenoid or the valve itself is stuck

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.
