The mop heats up and has steam, but won't steam with the pad on it. So, it won't clean the floors!

Likely the cause is a blocked hose in the head. See my video post for explanation of how to fix it:

Hi, you could try the following steps, if you have not done so already. Some of these steps may seem like common sense, but it's for people to forget about checking the least expensive part to replace first, so if some of the steps are those that you have already tried, then feel free just to skip through to the ones you have not tried already.
  1. 1
    Make sure the power cord is plugged firmly into the outlet. The steam mop will not start if it the power cord is loose.
  2. 2
    Check the fuse box or circuit breaker connected to the outlet the steam mop is plugged in to. Replace any blown fuses. Reset any tripped breakers.
  3. 3
    Check the water tank if the Shark steam mop will not produce steam. Add water to the tank if it is empty. The mop will not make steam without water in the tank. To fill the tank, turn the tank cap counterclockwise and lift it up to remove it. Set the filling funnel into the tank opening. Pour water through the funnel into the tank until the water level reaches the "Max" fill line on the tank. Replace the cap.
  4. 4
    Inspect the microfiber cleaning pad if the steam mop is leaving water on the floor. If the microfiber pad is too wet, it will leave water on the floor. Unplug the mop from the wall outlet. Replace the microfiber cleaning pad. To replace the pad, move the latch strips out of the hooks on the mop head. Pull the pad off. Set the new cleaning pad on the mop head. Hook the latch strips onto the hooks on the mop head.
  5. 5
    Use distilled water if the steam mop is leaving white spots on the floor. Hard water may cause white spots to be left.
If none of the above work, then is it something that you purchased recently, and is new? If you did, then it could still be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty regardless of whether or not the original length of the warranty has expired. This could be due to the fact that you have received a product that has some sort of manufacturing fault, rather than it stop working through misuse by the user.
If it's a common problem, then you will more then likely be able to return it to the manufacturer and have it replaced for a new one, let alone repaired :-) - This only applies to whether or not the item is New though :-).
Hope this info helps

The Shark mop gets warm but does not produce steam. This is the second mop I have owned. Bought a new one as I had the same problem with the first.


Just a guess, but I think you have hard water problems. Pour some vinegar into the mop, heat it, allow to cool, pour it out, rinse, repeat. Afterwards, use distilled water if available, otherwise, after every 5 - 10 uses, use the vinegar to remove the minerals from the heating elements. Let us know if this works!

Streaks on porcelein tile from shark steam mop


Try washing your pads in JUST water and Baking soda or Borax (and only about a tbs). Sounds like a hard water problem. I had the same issue with my wood floors so I put some Murphy's Oil in a spray bottle and it polished my floors while I steamed. Perhaps there is a good tile cleaner/polish you can spray with a spray bottle while you mop? Just a suggestion. I haven't had this particular issue with tile (our floors are concrete and wood) but the streaks went away when I started using just Borax in my laundry with them, no fabric softener, no dryer sheets. My mom used to use Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle with her steam mop. Make sure your tile is well seeled too, it gives you a better finish. The alcohol dries on it's own too without leaving residue.

My shark steams at the bottom of the handle but not at the foot of the mop. What is the problem?


sounds like the steam hose between the handle and the floor pad has a blockage in it and / or the pad exit holes are blocked with debris. clean and clear holes and hose and this should restore the unit to working condition.

Shark Floor Cleaner streaking on pergo laminate floor


Start with a clean pad. A dirty pad wil spread the wet residue around and strek the pergo. After steaming use a clean microfiber dust mop to buff the pergo. It will dry and shine yur laminate.
