You have not mentioned the capacity of the container but if it is the one litre type anything from half litre to a litre is good, the coils must be submerged and not to be heated dry beacuse it will blow off.

I have a scunci ss 1000 hand held steamer cleaner. Its been used and given to me from a friend. The steam comes out the trouble is the steam is not hot, just luke warm. how can I fix it myself.


Try descaling it with CLR. Add CLR and water, turn it on but not fully to produce steam, just get it hot. Leave it for an hour. Empty that out and out some more in. Get this up to steam for 10 minutes, switch off, leave it for an hour and empty it. Fill and rinse out twice. Fill with water and see if it is fixed.

Why is vax s7-a+steam mop steamer dripping water and cuts on and off


I managed to fix mine after a little effort. It was blocked well up in the nozzle into a small pinhole where the steam comes out of the 'small kettle' in the steam mop.
To fix:
  • take the blue side bit off by unscrewing the two small screws
  • Undo the screws inside (there are about 11)
  • Once these were undone there was two screws holding the nozzle cover.
  • After unscrewing these pull the nozzle cover of and scrape limescale from inside the small hole where the steam comes out
  • Put it all back together and it should work much better
You should only really do this if you are competent as there are lots of wires etc. and if your steam mop is not covered under warranty as messing around with it will void this.

Hope this helps :)

Just need simple instructions, can not find mine at the moment due to Christmas rush. Do I need to put warm or cold water in tank?


Hi,

It doesn't really matter - the water is heated to the correct temperature inside the steam mop - so you can use either. It's recommended that you fill with clean cold water, but if you put warm water in, it will still work and will generate steam faster from startup.

Whichever you use, just make sure you don't overfill it past the MAX mark on the tank.

How does it work?


Most units of this type make steam by heating water that is placed in a canister. Other than the place you attach the "hose", there should be only one other place on the body of the unit that opens up... that's most probably where the water goes in. Put water into a measuring cup, graduated cylinder, filling to known point. Then pour water into unit until 1/2" below fill hole. Note on measuring cup how much you used. This is the unit's capacity. Put "lid" or "cap" back on, plug unit into wall and wait a little while. Voila! Steam.

My hoover steam vac


OKay! I've figured it out! After making sure I had the cleaning solution container connected properly, the "lint filter" thingy clear, the attachment plug thingy unplugged, the filter in it's proper position, (about a cm down from the seal), and the seal on the filter was all good, etc etc etc, the brushes in properly...I was about to drive over this steam cleaner with my car!

After taking a break and going back to it, I discovered that I didn't have the lid to my dirty water tank (or air tank, as I was starting to call it) properly closed. There are two lips that you have to make sure the lid "hinges" from, and THEN snap the lid shut. This made a seal that allowed this steam cleaner to **** up all kinds of gooey gunk from my carpets! The brushes work, the suction works, it's a FABULOUS machine! It doesn't get any louder when it's sucking up water, either.

All this AND I had the instructions! Go figure!
