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.

SOURCE: safety cap on the Euro-Pro dexuxe steam cleaner style SC507H

if it is anything like mine...you push the cap down, give it a full turn & release. keep doing this (maybe 5 or more times, and eventually it will start unscrewing easily without needing to push down

SOURCE: My shark steam mop heats up but won't steam. help

My problem was in the mop head itself where flexible tubing meets the plastic. I took out the 4 screws that connect the swivel mechanism, then the two that hold the flexible tube in place. Once that was free I could get a large straightened paper clip in the hole to break out the clog of mineral deposits.

SOURCE: Shark S3101 Steam Mop won't produce steam

You have to use distilled water in the steam mop. regular water clogs it up and causes it not to work.

My h2o mop won't steam. How do i fix it?


If your H2O mop will not steam:
1. Ensure you have followed the operating instructions.
2. Ensure you have followed the troubleshooting instructions.

If the unit fails to produce steam:
3. Switch off the power at the outlet.
4. Look at the water reservoir. Inside you will see a flexible tube with a cone on the end. Tilt the unit or give it a gentle shake to submerge the cone in water.
5. With the cone submerged, switch on the power supply and follow the normal instructions. The unit should produce steam as normal.

Note: Unless the cone is submerged in water, the unit will not steam.

Steam buggy water reservoir cap has apparently been cross threaded, and cannot be removed by twisting or other "encouragement." If I cut it off, where can I get a replacement? Can the machine be used as...


You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You will need to use some force to get the plug out since it's basically glued shut by lime deposits in your tap water.


Do not move the slotted cap or else this will need to be adjusted so that all your water doesn't squirt out before turning to steam.


Next time only use distilled water. Store with the cap off. Grease the inner and outer threads after every use and wipe it off completely before use so it doesn't mix with the steam and turn to vapor.

Karcher SC 1502 steam cleaner can't get cap off water tank


Dear jrider784,
I solved a problem like this on FIXYA, just a few months ago. I gave this solution. Try to fill the machine from somewhere else. You can do this from the outlet. If you manage to do this, put on the machine. ( now you know that when there is hot water in the machine, the tap goes round free for safety). Now as the water starts to cool down....start trying to see if you can unscrew it. My plan is that with the hot water, the safety will start to work again. If the cap does not release the safety on cooling, then there is no other way but to destroy the cap and replace with a new one. Very important to mention that this job must be done by a qualified technician or some one who knows what he is doing. Working with hot water is very dangerous.
Regards,
Fulltech.
