    We did not lubricate to top first and Euro Pro had not addressed this problem. It is now cemented shut and EP says there is nothing we can do about it.

I had the same problem of getting the cap off. I ended up popping the black cap off and then used wd40 on the metal screw that was still attached. I then took a pair of pliers and turned and it came right off.

The steam comes out of the water reservoir cap instead of the steam Jet Nozzle.


I can only guess since I have never worked on one of these units, but I think you lost a gasket on the cap. Pressure must build in the reservoir before being forced out the nozzle.

Hi Karen, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC25's brush bar. It sounds like the removable end cap may not be fitted or locked in place correctly.

If you turn the machine over, you should see a small silver catch which can be turned using the edge of a coin. Please make sure this is turned to face the small padlock icon, to lock the end cap to the cleaner head securely. The removal and replacement of the end cap is shown in the video attached.

This should resolve the issue, but if you do need further advice, please get in touch with us directly. Our experts can confirm if we're able to help under the terms of our 5-year guarantee. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Best wishes,

Dyson dc35 max button gets stuck


I found my MAX button had a crack in it, which was causing it to grab on the sides of the button hole, I tried various methods to free the button, but in the end I resorted to ripping the button cap off. Below the button cap is the max/normal switch itself. It now functions as it should, but is missing the MAX button cap, not really an issue for me, though if I could find a new MAX button somewhere I'd put it on, it looks like it should push straight on.

Steam buggy water reservoir cap has apparently been cross threaded, and cannot be removed by twisting or other "encouragement." If I cut it off, where can I get a replacement? Can the machine be used as...


You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You will need to use some force to get the plug out since it's basically glued shut by lime deposits in your tap water.


Do not move the slotted cap or else this will need to be adjusted so that all your water doesn't squirt out before turning to steam.


Next time only use distilled water. Store with the cap off. Grease the inner and outer threads after every use and wipe it off completely before use so it doesn't mix with the steam and turn to vapor.

Karcher SC 1502 steam cleaner can't get cap off water tank


Dear jrider784,
I solved a problem like this on FIXYA, just a few months ago. I gave this solution. Try to fill the machine from somewhere else. You can do this from the outlet. If you manage to do this, put on the machine. ( now you know that when there is hot water in the machine, the tap goes round free for safety). Now as the water starts to cool down....start trying to see if you can unscrew it. My plan is that with the hot water, the safety will start to work again. If the cap does not release the safety on cooling, then there is no other way but to destroy the cap and replace with a new one. Very important to mention that this job must be done by a qualified technician or some one who knows what he is doing. Working with hot water is very dangerous.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Tank Cap is stuck


I had the same problem. I was able to use two butter knifes (using dull edges) to 1. pry up cap slightly and 2. pull gasket over lip of cap

I then worked the gasket off by lifting the cap right behind where I was removing the gasket.

Once the gasket was off, I was able to remove the cap easily.

I then put the gasket back on, undamaged, and could use like normal.

The difference between the lock and unlock position is only around 20-30 degrees.

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