Open Question

Orange light comes when it is full

I went to add water and the cap shot off and sprayed hot water and steam all over me? How do I clean it out because I think it is clogged with calcium deposits.

    I have a Kenwood 5000 steam mop thinking it would be easier to fill. I've found it doesn't work like the older model....The orange light comes on when I fill the top and NO steam comes into the mop head at all. I've checked the lock and unlock and it still doesn't work...

If you have been using tap water, your steamer is probably clogged with calcium or lime. I would pour some CLR (Calcium, Lime and Rust remover) into it and let it sit for a few hours. CLR can be bought at Home Depot or Lowe's.

Why is the spray always clogged?

water too hard causes calcium deposits. you can buy softener pellets for steam machines. using battery (demin) water will help prevent it

Can I use tap water with the S3101WT model

Yes, you can use tap water - either hot or cold.

It's recommended that you fill with clean cold water, but if you fill it with hot water, it will generate steam faster from startup. The most important thing is not to overfill it beyond the MAX mark on the tank.

My Sunbeam Pro Stream II Teflon shot and spray iron consistently spits water as I try to iron. I don't overfill it and the temperature and steam dials are set correctly. help!

How old is the steam iron?
And what type of water have you been using in it during its life?

The reason I ask, is that my Wife's was doing this, and we have fairly 'hard' water,
and she was using water directly from the tap.
After a year or so of this 'hard' water, calcium and minerals build up in the heating chamber in the iron-- Also passageways get clogged, and instead of smooth flowing steam, you get build-up of pressure, and then sputtering and spurting take place, as the clogged passageways try to pass the steam to where it needs to be.

Steam coming out but no water is being distribued for the steam to dry it

If you have used it a lot and you have hard water... the calcium deposits will clog the water dispenser. That's what happened to mine. I cleaned it out with white vinegar and it started working fine. It's simply something clogged in the water dispenser.

Does not spray cleaner

It helps to always run hot water in the soap holding tank after you have cleaned the carpet to make sure the soap does not dry inside and clog. Make sure that the dirty tank water filter is clear of debris, I have noticed that if it is clogged it won't spray out solution. Another thing to try is, it usually will always spray out of handheld cleaning attatchment. steve

You didn't give a model number so I'll tell you both methods. The F5xxx and F6xxx models have a cap at the top of the clean water tank that doubles as a measuring cup. The cap is about 3 inches in diameter. Fill the cap to the fill line with shampoo and dump it in the tank. Then fill the tank with hot (Not Boiling) water.
The F7xxx series has a 2 section tank. The large section is for hot (Not Boiling) water. The smaller section is for shampoo. Fill the smaller section with shampoo and the Steam Vac will mix the water and shampoo for you in the proper proportion.

No steam

I used the straw to prime the lines and 50/50 mix of vinager and water and it worked perfectly. I then mixed the water container with the same mix and ran it through the system. All works fine now.
