    Same problem here too! I bought mine at a garage sale for $2 new in box but it doesn't work. I have searched online also for a manual to download or some help, but haven't found anything. Glad I didn't pay full price.

    Thank You "cisheolawson", however after I have taken this machine apart, and there are Not any "rings" to get clogged. Am unsure what it is you are referring to.

If you need instructions go to www.HandBookLive.com. There are videos for GS4 and GS10 under Appliances category. It says that steam is produced in about 5-6 minutes after you turn power on. Also there is a low water indicator light on GS10 that kills power to teh unit if the water level is low. Maybe that's the problem... Not sure if sc20 is similar

    It is impossible to find online link to a user manual for sc20, but if you call Conair at 800-326-6247 and ask for it they will email you the pdf file. Got this information from www.HandBookLive.com

Use distelled water and check the rings where the spray comes out they can be clogged. You have to turn the switch on and give it time to heat up. I own one for 4 years and works wonderful.

Just bought the conair extreme steam, won't work, where is the steam reset button? Please help lol


It probably does not have a reset button. It is defective. Just return the item back to the store for a new replacement or refund.

My steam cleaner was working, then when i refilled it, it didnt heat up. its a multipurpose with different attachments. could it be element gone?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clean an iron:
  1. Unplug the iron and make sure it is cool before cleaning.
  2. Use a toothpick or pipe cleaner to remove buildup in the steam vents, making sure the debris doesn't fall into the vents.
  3. Use a fine sewing needle to carefully clean the spray nozzle of mineral deposits.
  4. To flush sediment from a steam iron, pour 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup vinegar into the water tank. Place the iron on a rack over a broiling pan and set the iron to steam until the tank runs dry. Repeat if necessary. Or follow the instructions for using a commercial iron cleaner.
Service the steam and spray mechanism:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a fine sewing needle to unclog the steam valve assembly. Also, check the valve spring and replace it if it is broken or has lost tension.
  3. If the spray pump is accessible, remove it and check for leaks by placing the spray tube in water and squirting the pump. Clean or replace as needed.
Clean a metal soleplate:
  1. Unplug the iron.
  2. Use a sponge and commercial soleplate cleaner or baking soda and water to remove dirt buildup on the soleplate. Rinse well with water and dry. Don't use harsh abrasives or immerse an electric iron in water.
  3. Use very fine steel wool (0000) or an emery cloth to remove scratches and burns on the soleplate, then clean the soleplate.

There is probably a float inside of tank. Deposit calcum probably has stuck it. This is dependent on the brand and how old it is.

Conair GS33 fabric steamer spews too much water..can't be normal, eh?


Are you setting the body of the steamer on a table? If part of the hose sits lower than the steamer body steam will condense in the hose and collect in the low spot. Steam pressure will push the water out through the nozzle. If your steamer starts to sputter lift the hose so that it is completely above the level of the water reservoir and let the water drain down. Its a good idea to keep the steamer body on the floor so the hose can never get lower than it.

Hand steamer conair GS15R will not produce steam. It is on, it is full of water, the body gets warm, and it makes noises like it is steaming but nothing comes out.


Hi.

The iron steam lines may be clogged with limescale.

Try first using descaling solution to clean the lines.
Do descaling several times.

If that does not work, then the thermostat may have started malfunctioning and cutting off earlier than normal. This will cause water not getting enough temperature, and iron not steaming.

Try using a descaler product, often that can fix the problem.
