1 Answer

If your steam mop is Enviro Steam Mop by Eureka. remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the steamer, that holds the center panel on. (Not the screws that hold the whole bottom.) Use a needle the clear the steam holes. Soak the panel in white vinegar for a couple of hours and scrub with aa brush to remove the lime calcium deposits. Check the center hole that goes into the steam and make sure it is clear. Reattach the panel. If the panel does not fit snuggly (either end does not contact the base panel, add two more screws about an inch in from either side. I used stainless steal screws because of the consist moisture. Used screws that are no more than 3/4 on an inch long and about the same diameter as the two you removed.

SOURCE: No steam release

I solved the problem, the metal (hot!) release rod gets stuck & needs a little push.
Unfasten the top by prying off the rubber gasket after removing the top. Remove the 2 small phillips screws, then remove the front that holds the nozzle, & remove those 2 phillips screws.
Carefully pry up the top with a putty knife, inside you will see the tip of a metal piston that the plastic release knob is supposed to contact. Set it on its front, & soak the piston with a light household or sewing oil, giving it a few taps with a blunt object occassionaly to loosen, heat up & test before reassembling, but remember, the piston is very hot. When you push on the piston with a screwdriver, it should release the steam, but also stop when you let go. Work with it a little & it will come back to life.

Water heats up but no steam comes out


Make sure the nozzle where the steam comes out is not clogged. Minerals in tap water may clog it cause it's very small opening.

Is there a trigger handle to turn off and on


no betty, stupid bit of kit imo, no operating switch, just on/off at the switch, which heats the water up. i measured 500ml of water heated using my kettle, put the top on, switched on, and waited. first time the steam didn't come out of the nozzle, so i removed the end and cleaned the nozzle with water, blew down the end from the big end, and replaced it, steam came out. big grumble though, the steam coming out is not that warm, don't advise you to, but i directed against my fingers, it's only hot at the exit of the pointing bit, used it to try and clean floor tiles and grout, complete waste of time. i wouldn't advise anyone to buy one.

How to remove hood from hoover steam cleaner deluxe I can not find how to remove hood its on top of nose of steam cleaner


Hi Lisa,

Do you need to clean the nozzle or do you need to do repairs inside? You only remove the hood to do repairs. For cleaning the nozzle, refer to your owner's manual as to what to do after you finish cleaning. There is a description for how to clean the nozzle.

If you need to do repair, please reply back. Thanks,

My brand new h2o mop won't steam. Green light comes on and thats it.


bought it a few years ago - I used it a few times and it was fair but did leae a lot of water on the floors. My wife had wanted it as it was supposed to be a miracle device, but she had some health issues and not able to do heavy housework. She is better now and decided to try this miracle device she had wanted so bad - so we took it out and no steam - so this would be it's 3rd use and it's was dead. I'm a bit of a tinkerer so decided to take the thing apart/clean the nozzles etc per the troubleshooting guide. Well, none of the obvious/accessable nozzles were clogged, and the filter seemed to pass air and water ok (probably does have to be changed due to time vs uses. Anyway, took the unit apart and ended up having to take the pump motor apart - there is a little nozzle/connecter on the back of the motor that passes the water into the heating chamber. cleaned that with a pin - put it back together, and tons of steam shooting half way across the room. So - she did the floors, they are wet but clean. Bottom line - does an ok job but leaves a lot of water behind, and it appears the internal nozzles can be a problem, and not something the average householder would want or be capable of fixing. (they do say you can try using WD-40 in the unit to clear nozzles - not sure how it would get through to the pump nozzle, but maybe this would work ??
Anyway - may end up buying some more filters as we will want to get a few more uses out of this thing for our $100 bucks, but will stay away from them in the future (go back to the wet swiffer - does about the same job but much less cost and hassle).

Have a Bissell Proheat2 will not spray water from the carpet power head but sprays from tools setting Does anyone know how to get water to spray or clean out water


I had this problem. It was small pieces of debris that got into the solution lines and clogged all the nozzles. There is a nozzle for the handheld attachments, one on the front of the machine for spraying spots and two nozzles underneath just behind the rotating brushes.

It was a royal pain disconnecting the clear rubber hoses inside the machine and blowing out the nozzles and the hoses with compressed air. If you are mechanically challenged I'd suggest you take the machine to a vacuum/steam cleaner repair facility.

I'm not sure how the debris got into the solution system, but it may have been when the dirty water tank was emptied some of the dirty water entered the internal, clean water bladder.

A note to Bissell engineers: This issue can be prevented if you simply add an easily accessable solution and/or water filter that the customers can remove, clean and reinstall. Just a suggestion.

It is probably clogged with rust or limescale - can happen with steam cleaners. Sadly there's no way around this but to try a limescale remover in distilled water such as Calgon limescale remover. Fill the kettle as normal and give it time to boil up. Then release the steam as you would normally. You may find that the kettle will spurt out deposits of gunk. Sounds like its definately clogged though.

Either the nozzles are clogged, or the brush block is not turning.
