Question about Scunci 52067 Handheld Steam Vacuum
I have the scunci hand held model (looks somewhat like a tea pot) it has been very hard working and loyal, however, suddenly it does not spray any steam. I checked all the nozzle vents, etc. & although it does heat up & the indicator lite works, nothing happens when i push the power button.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions,
Unscrew the screw on the handle and remove handle. Remove rubber where top screws on. Remove two screws and the top and now unscrew the black pipe where the steam comes out. Now remove the button and see the small metal protrusion on the pot where the button was. Hit it with a hammer a few times softly to remove the scale buildup until the metal starts moving in and out again. I also sprayed it with a little silicone spray. Now put everything back together again. My steamer now works beautifully again!

I had the same problem with the 1600 Scunci Floor model...It seems that steamers are prong to calcium deposits. This is especially true if you have hard water. I tried everything....I even opened the unit up...I don't suggest you do that but you can fix the problem by buying a new hose...just google Scunci Accessories....I actually got my working but I don't trust my home made remedy....I'm just gonna buy a new hose....I learned also that you should put CLR and vinegar in the steamer before each use to avoid the calcium deposits.

If you've used this product before, did you use regular tap water or distilled water? I've had my Scunci for years and have no problem with it.

Use a very small flat head screwdriver and use any sort of a grinding tool to cut a small slot in the center of the blade. Works like magic and enabled me to filx my steamer

I had the same problem . I have some of the best warter there is. It is filtered and it has a magnatie on it. So my warter does not leave hard warter spots or anything like that much. So why does this steamer not work. I have a floor brand by shark and it works great. But Liked this one so I got it. And it will not work after one use. My husband works on all kinds of applainces. And for the life of him he says it should not be this way after one use. Thanks In Texas
