According to iRobot make sure that the Scooba is clean, including the parts (vacuum hose & filter, bottom roller)
Make sure the battery if fully charged, and that you let it complete the cycles!

    I forgot to ask how much water is it leaving on the floor?

    The robot will leave some (not much) clean water on the floor on every cycle, as designed.

When steaming wood floors leaves floors wet


Kathy if you are talking about hardwood floors you should NOT use any kind of steamer ever on them .
The wood is eighter oak or yellow pine most common however cherry and moghagany on high end houses and used .
But it is all what is called tung and grove and is finished on the top olny with an interior finish that dosn't work well with moisture let alone forceing steam under it it will soak into the bottom of the wood and then the wood will start to cup become uneven on open up .
The best thing you can do if you have this problem let it dry out might take some time weeks or more .
Then rent a floor sander sand it stain it and put at least 3 coats of a polyurthane over it if you use water base poly you will need more coats.

Leaves too much water on floor. Do I release the trigger to suck up water or keep it pulled at all times?


I don't know the particular brand you're talking about, but in my experience I do one pass with the trigger/sprayer on and then two or three passes with just the vacuum to remove the excess water. Devices with sprayers always need at least one pass over without the sprayer trigger on.

My Bissell proheat2x leaks water from bottom of machine, if you have the water tank full and cleaner and leave it sit it drains out onto the floor, it leaks when you are using it to, is this a seal or...


Nope, not a seal problem, just natural good old fashioned natural gravity. I know it doesn\'t take long for it to start leaking after use but Bissell covers this in the manual. Thoroughly clean the unit, run clean rinse water through every cycle and empty all tanks and cavities after use. Do not leave water in any of the tanks when not in use. What doesn\'t leak on your floor (which doesn\'t take long) could cause permanent blockages in the lines. It\'s a pain, I know, but I use the garage or back deck to park and prep mine after use.

Shark Euro Pro Steamer


Hi, you could try the following steps, if you have not done so already. Some of these steps may seem like common sense, but it's for people to forget about checking the least expensive part to replace first, so if some of the steps are those that you have already tried, then feel free just to skip through to the ones you have not tried already.
  1. 1
    Make sure the power cord is plugged firmly into the outlet. The steam mop will not start if it the power cord is loose.
  2. 2
    Check the fuse box or circuit breaker connected to the outlet the steam mop is plugged in to. Replace any blown fuses. Reset any tripped breakers.
  3. 3
    Check the water tank if the Shark steam mop will not produce steam. Add water to the tank if it is empty. The mop will not make steam without water in the tank. To fill the tank, turn the tank cap counterclockwise and lift it up to remove it. Set the filling funnel into the tank opening. Pour water through the funnel into the tank until the water level reaches the "Max" fill line on the tank. Replace the cap.
  4. 4
    Inspect the microfiber cleaning pad if the steam mop is leaving water on the floor. If the microfiber pad is too wet, it will leave water on the floor. Unplug the mop from the wall outlet. Replace the microfiber cleaning pad. To replace the pad, move the latch strips out of the hooks on the mop head. Pull the pad off. Set the new cleaning pad on the mop head. Hook the latch strips onto the hooks on the mop head.
  5. 5
    Use distilled water if the steam mop is leaving white spots on the floor. Hard water may cause white spots to be left.
If none of the above work, then is it something that you purchased recently, and is new? If you did, then it could still be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty regardless of whether or not the original length of the warranty has expired. This could be due to the fact that you have received a product that has some sort of manufacturing fault, rather than it stop working through misuse by the user.
If it's a common problem, then you will more then likely be able to return it to the manufacturer and have it replaced for a new one, let alone repaired :-) - This only applies to whether or not the item is New though :-).
Hope this info helps

Streaks on porcelein tile from shark steam mop


Try washing your pads in JUST water and Baking soda or Borax (and only about a tbs). Sounds like a hard water problem. I had the same issue with my wood floors so I put some Murphy's Oil in a spray bottle and it polished my floors while I steamed. Perhaps there is a good tile cleaner/polish you can spray with a spray bottle while you mop? Just a suggestion. I haven't had this particular issue with tile (our floors are concrete and wood) but the streaks went away when I started using just Borax in my laundry with them, no fabric softener, no dryer sheets. My mom used to use Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle with her steam mop. Make sure your tile is well seeled too, it gives you a better finish. The alcohol dries on it's own too without leaving residue.

Shampooer leaves spots


If the spots are NOT at the center of the unit - you may have washed the brush roll. Older style shampooer brush rolls could retain a lot of water and it is all dirty in there. NEVER wash the brush. Just after you are done - raise the nozzle and let it spin freely for 10-15 seconds. It will be clean most of the time.

If you already did or if you will absolutely have to do it in the future - do not soak it. Set it vertically somewhere so water could drain and leave it to dry.

Do not make sudden moves while shampooing so the water does not spill from the tray.

If you oiled Kirby some time or sprayed WD40 somewhere - maybe it is coming out now (do not oil Kirby - it does not need that type of maintenance)

Hope this helps

Poor cleaning


Hi,

This type of problem usually is not he fault of the Shark Steam Mop.
The problem is the old residue left on the floors by other cleaners.
