Sounds like either your water pump is worn out, water intakes are clogged, or something is blocking the water passages in the motor. Just because you have water spray coming out from the motor, it does not mean that the motor is getting adequate cooling. In any case, you should take it to a motor repair shop and get it checked. If you keep running it hot you will probably ruin the motor.

    You can check the water intakes for blockages (grass, seaweed, debris). Water intakes are located above the propeller on each side. Anything else I would take it to a boat motor mechanic. Make sure and ask what is the hourly rate and how long he thinks it will take to fix it (try and get an estimate before work begins).

    pull your lower unit and therostate housing blow air/water through the water tube see if the block is stopped up with trash or old water pump parts replace water pump and thermostate if it has one

Water shoots out of steam valve and can't make espresso


The steam function and the expresso use the same elements to create the steam but the valves will direct the steam to the expresso unit or the steam arm. Most likely you have a faulty valve. In most cases the valve will not open until the pressure gets to the right level. If you are just getting hot water out of the steam arm instead of steam via the expresso unit it most likely means that the valve is faulty. The valves can be replaced but is not easy. You will need to have the unit serviced or you could try to replace the valves. Make sure the flow meter is working before you replace the valves. You can check the operation of the flow meter by running the hot water cycle and making sure that you get the right amount of hot water. Good luck!

I have a Bionaire Steam Mop, Model SM-02. The water appears to be heating up, but no steam comes out. Green light is on

My daughter has one of these and has the same problem. Does the body of the steamer (where the motor is located on yours) get really warm ? I took this one apart,and could find nothing visual wrong,but the motor itself was so hot that I couldn't touch it.The motor does make sounds even though it isn't supposed to after it has been running for a few seconds, but I don't think that it's turning.and no steam emits,so I suspect that is the problem. All the water hoses were clear,so I suspect that the motor will have to be replaced.It did work once and puffed steam out but not enough to do anything.

My steam cleaner is not spaying water on the carpet?

I found that if the water is not hot enough it won't create the suction needed for the water to spray. If you have use it in the past it could be that the water tubing could be clod.

Car overheated. Still runs

did it steam from under the hood or was water running from it when you cut it off? If water ran from it when you cut it off in the middle like the front that is your water pump. if steam was coming from the hood you could have a busted hose. if radiator is boiling hot could be your thermostat. if water is not holding in your radiator then you may have a busted radiator or blown a gasket. if your motor is still good do not drive if it runs hot you can blow a head gasket or the motor and to get it fixed a lot more money and you don't want that. as you put water in your vehicle make sure it is running while you are doing this. hope this helps

My steam/hot water arm fell out along with no steam

Easiest way to get to it, remove the 2 screws in the bean hopper, and remove the hopper, there are a few screws under the water tank, this should give you access to the machine top. Check the end of the steam wand it might be blocked use a paper clip to clear it out. Run it under the faucet to make suree it is clear. Check the microswitch that is connected to the steam valve, It can be seen when you turn the knob to open the steam/hot water valve, make sure it is not stuck in the on position.

I have a jacuzzi magnum 1.5 HP pump. It turns on, moves some water well towards getting primed, then cuts off. Pump gets quite hot to the touch. Circuit breakers do not trip however. Had the capacitor...

Your motor is going bad if it get's that hot. It is kicking off when it get's hot enough to the heat switch in the back of the motor. This resets it self and the motor probally comes on again after a few minutes. The wireing in the motor has a small short that will get worse soon enough and may even catch fire if the conditions are right. So you should get a new one and replace your seal kit and "O" rings at the same time. Odds are a small water leak got this started. Good luck

Please explain problem better. Whats this " just about " when you describe water and steam. Also on this cut off point that machine is getting hot . This machine gets hot normally , there is a heat cut off mounted on boiler but you would have to remove top off machine and physically check which I don't think you did.

Gaggia titanium not pumping water after descaling

Line could be blocked at the boiler, check the the line that runs to the steam/hot water valve.
Did you try disconnecting the other side of the pump to see if indeed it doesn't work when you turn it on.
For the pump, if you remove the top connection and the electrical connections you can slide it off the top flange, then using a flat edge screwdriver on the back middle of the bottom flange where is sits on the frame you can get the pump out.

Water heater problem (no leak on floor)

shut off the power to the hot water heater wait 5 to 15 min. If the noise stops it is the water heater eating up electricity. Turn it back on if noise starts again feel about 5 or so feet down the hot water line. If this line is hot you have a leak beyond the hot water heater. If you still hear it when the power is off to the water heater. next turn the water off on the cold water line at the water heater with the power off also Look at the water meter and see if the hand or wheel on the meter is moving and it should no be. Also think if the breaker to the hot water is off the electric meter should practically stop if no refrig oe anything else on. Have someone watch the electric meter and switch 1 breaker at a time leaving the one you just shut off in the off position until you cut them all off. Should the meter still be moving you have a main service cable shorting somewhere call the power company to advise you further if this is the problem.. Should just cutting the circuit breaker for the hot water heater stop the noise and down the hot water line is not hot then you are probably wasting power due to a thermostat or element inside the hot water heater.. Thank you j
