You did very well to switch it off since steam could harm the electronics.
However this is a frequent problem with espresso machines. The steam is coming from the boiler with pressure by tube made from Teflon and it is secure on the steam wand union with the easy secure system. This is using an o ring rubber and a copper ring forced in the union and secured with a clip.
Sometimes the clip get out of this place so the Teflon tube is out too or the o ring it is have a leak and in both cases the steam is all over inside the machine.
The problem is sometime caused because the steam wand becomes goggled by dry milk so the steam with pressure will force the tube to come out from a loose point.
Therefore your machine actually have not any serious problem the only thing is to remove the top panel find the loose tube and put it back is place. If you don’t see the clip on place you search for it around the bottom of your machine.
Use also a thin paper clip inside the steam wand so it will open completely and try to use the machine without the panels in order to visual check that the steam is coming from steam wand and you don’t have any steam leaks in other places.
If you are not capable doing the above yourself then if you ask a professional do it for you just take care to charge you only a labor cost of 30 min and maybe a new clip.
Take care and if you need anything more just comment it back.

    You should remove the grounds bin and check in the funnel place the limit switch is on the back.

    Check if you have any grounds remaining and if yes clean them by the use of a brush or a vacuum cleaner. Maybe this is the reason the bin cannot be in place or the grounds are blocking the switch.

    However there is also the possibility during the assembling of the machine one of the two wires of the switch to be loose.

Can not turn on the steam mop


I was able to turn on the steam mop, but no matter how hard I pumped the handle... no steam. Someone here said to put vinegar into the water bottle. I realized that they were saying particles from the water could have formed and clogged the steam tube. First, make sure your steamer is OFF!! Turn the steamer upside down as though you were putting a new pad on, Use a slender object to clean out the tubing where the steam comes from. Again, I will say... make sure your machine is off before you attempt this.. Otherwise, when you clean out the tubing the object will become a bullet flying thru the air and can hurt you, Hope this works

Hoover twin tank handheld steamer WH20100


Step 1 - How It Works
A garment steamer is a hand held device. Water is placed in the tank and is heated until it becomes steam. The steam is directed at pressure through a nozzle to the garment. The heat relaxes all the fibers in the garment, which eliminates the wrinkles in the clothing.
Step 2 - Preparation
Put cold water in the water tank of the handheld steamer. Check to ensure all the parts are properly connected. Turn the device on and allow the garment steamer to heat until steam forms.
Step 3 - Shirts
Put the shirt on a hanger. You should button the collar and a couple of buttons below it. To make life as easy as possible, hang the shirt from something that will easily let you reach all around it-a shower curtain rail is ideal for this.
Steam from the bottom of the shirt, moving upward. Direct the steam at the material and pay particular attention to the collar area. After you've finished, let the shirt hang for a minute before putting it in the closet. This will allow the dampness to air out.
Step 4 - Dresses And Skirts
Dresses and skirts can be made of many different types of fabric, with different printing, so special care is needed with these. Where the material itself is delicate, such as silk or velvet, make sure that the nozzle of the garment steamer never directly touches the material.
Where clothing has been embroidered or screen-printed you should turn the item of clothing inside out and steam that side instead. That way there's no risk of damaging the print or embroidery, and the wrinkles will still disappear. When you've finished, give the clothing a minute for the dampness to fade, turn right side out and hang in the closet.
Step 5 - Heavier Material
Where you're steaming a heavier material, you might well find that it needs several steamings before all the wrinkles go. As an alternative to this you can also use the garment steamer on the inside and the outside of the piece of clothing.
Step 6 - Water Level
Check the water level in the tank after each item of clothing. This way there will be no danger of the water running low. If you let the water run out you can end up damaging the garment steamer. On the other hand, if you put too much water in the tank, all that will come out will be water, not steam.
Step 7 - Other Uses
A garment steamer is surprisingly versatile. You can also use it on drapes, upholstery and even wigs. Many people pack travel size garment steamers when they go on trips.

Hi You need to switch Steam ON so it heats up and then turn Steam button OFF (no light) and then turn steamer knob counter clockwise you will hear the pump start up and then water will stream out. This is when it's primed. Turn steamer clock wise to close. You must do this everytime you use the steamer.

Steam Nozzle


I've only had it fly off once.  I think I didn't put it all the way on.  Also make sure you clean the nozzle every time you use the steamer.  Milk will clog the nozzle otherwise.  My maker is right beside the sink and I rinse the nozzle immediately after steaming milk.  I also run it through the dishwasher at least weekly.  (This isn't a substitute for immediate clearing of the nozzle.)   A clogged nozzle will always blow off the end.

Both tubes must be in the water. If you haven't used the machine for awhile, fill the water canister, turn the espresso maker on and also turn on the delivery switch (the top switch on the EC140). You'll hear the pump and in a second or two water will begin to exit the boiler nozzle. Immediately turn the delivery switch off. Wait for the "OK" light to come on. Press the "Steam" switch (the middle switch on the EC140, place an empty cup under the frother and turn the steam control knob on top in the counterclockwise direction. Steam will come from the frother. Be very careful to avoid contact with this steam.

Steamer does not work


Your steam wand is probably clogged with milk. Remove the panarello outside and stick a paper clip up the tube. Then try to run water out of the steam wand.

 

Hope this helps!
