I'm willing to try this to clean the mold out of the steamer container and possibly the rest of the attachments:
1. Empty the water reservoir completely.
2. Place 20 mL of CLR or bleach into the reservoir.
3. Fill the reservoir with hot water.
4. Shake the reservoir to mix and let stand for about 1 hour.
5. Empty the reservoir completely.
6. Rinse the reservoir 3 or 4 times with cold water.
7. Fill the reservoir with distilled water.
8. Run the steamer into the ventilated air a couple of times to ensure that there is no CLR or bleach residue on the evaporation elements. Thus, there will be no bleach on your cloths.
I have the same problem and will try this out tomorrow. I will tell you how it turns out.
When I use mine I hang the hand held part from my closet door, while I am waiting for it to heat up. When the hose gets too much condensation, from the steam, it leaks out... This will also happen if you try to use in the motion of an iron. The hand held part needs to be at a vertical position at all time to prevent leaking.
I think is maybe the hose connections. You need to make sure both ends (by the T-nozzle and by the body of the steamer) are secure. You have to align the nozzle with the rod, and push down, and twist. Try watching instructions for connecting both ends on www.HandBookLive.com under appliances category. There are GS4 video instructions and GS10 (this one has just been posted yesterday)
hoe it helps. Otherwise I would return the steamer. Nowhere in the operating instructions does it say that you can control the amount of stream produced...
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.
If the steamer starts making a "gurgling" noise, like its running out of steam, hold the hose straight up for several seconds. It says to do this in the manual and gets the steam flowing again--works great!
