Hi

The washer must be empty and the controls must be in the off state.
1. Press the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons simultaneously.
2. Press the Power button, while the above condition. Then buzzer will sound twice.
3. Press the Start/Pause button repeatedly to cycle through the test modes.
a. Press 7 times to check whether Inlet valve for steam turns on.
b. Press 13 times to check whether Water level Sensor for Steam is working.
c. Press 14 times to check whether Steam Heater turns on for 1.2 sec.

If the diagnostics fail at step a then steam water valve is faulty. If it fails at step b then water level sensor is faulty, and if fails at step c then it is the steam heater which is faulty. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

    Hi



    Check the heat switch is turned on and if the engine runs but the burner doesn't fire. Check the thermostat isn't too low. Set it to a higher temperature. Check all the connections between the unloader and gun for leaks if the pressure washer surges. Tighten any loose components. Replace the spray gun, if necessary. Clean the nozzle if the washer runs but there's no pressure. Remove the nozzle and run it under a tap. Try a different nozzle. Check that the water flow is adequate. The water supply should be 2 1/2 gallons per minute. A trickle from the tap won't cut it. Check for any clogs in the strainer or the injector.

    Thanks

I have a Kenmore he5 steam dryer that is dripping water out of the steam nozzle on the inside of the drum. This happens on any drying cycle and causes clothes to not dry. How do I fix this?


Does it drip just when the unit is operating or do you find water in the machine when it is not running? Try shutting the water off to the dryer and see if the dripping stops. If it does the water inlet valve needs to be replaced.

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 :)

Steam nozzle


Yes, it's OK to work without steam function. Actually, it is not a real hot steam. It just spray the water.

When I turn on the steam valve, nor hot water nor steam comes out (not one drop), it doesn't make it to the nozzle and instead it goes directly to the drip tray. Coffees dispense works...


Hi, sounds like either you have a blocked or fauly solenoid, or micro switch or the water inlet side of the boiler is bocked. This is easy to fix. You need to be able to get to the inlet on the boiler, undo the water line and drill it out using a 3mm drill bit. Dazza

No Steam


Unit sounds like the steam valve and orings have failed.
This causes no steam and internal leakage.

Where to fine a owners manual


I own a Maxim Expres machine. I no longer use it nor have the manual, but the following are my recollections.
I have the version with an on/off switch on the front and a separate knob to control the steam nozzle.

- Use the carafe to measure the water, then pour into the tank and replace the screw-on lid.
- Measure coffee into the metal basket (don't remember the proportions of coffee to water - you
have to experiment.)
- I tamped the coffee lightly - not as much pressure as you use with a pump-driven machine.
- Put the basket into the handle, line up the slots and twist the handle to the side to secure (I'm
sure the models vary in this regard). Place the carafe under the drip hole.
- Push the button to "on". For espresso, just wait until it stops dripping. This is a steam-driven
machine - don't expect much or any crema.
- Frothing: If you are going to froth milk, you need to do it WHILE THE COFFEE IS DRIPPING.
-Wait until coffee starts dripping into the carafe (otherwise there is not enough steam pressure)
-Submerge the nozzle tip under the surface of the milk and turn the knob on the steam nozzle.
-After frothing, turn the nozzle to closed and wait for coffee to finish.
-If you wait too long to start frothing, the coffee will finish and you will lose steam pressure.

That's what I remember, hope it helps.
