SOURCE: I have a Bionaire Steam
Solition: 1 tbsp of vinegar in the 1 cup of water added to mop reservoir
I purchased my Bionaire steam mop in Nov. 2010 but did not try it out until just recently (Mar. 2011) - and had the exact same problem as you... green light on, base feels warm, sounds like it's working, but no steam coming out.
I called Bionaire customer service and the lady there told me to try adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar to the 1 cup of water that you put in the mop. Then she said to leave the mop plugged-in (but not switched on) for about 30 minutes; so the green light is on; then to turn the switch to "on". I did this and, when I switched it on, it still did not produce steam. In frustration, I unplugged it and left the mop (with the water/vinegar mixture still in it) sitting upright for two days. After the two days, I was just about to empty the mixture out of the mop and thought I would try it one more time... and IT WORKED!!!
I hope this solution works for you, too!

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.
