The nozzle is blocked up i'm assuming with limescale. I've tried soaking it in descaler but it still won't work. The buggy is working but need the nozzle for any sort of power.

If you can not get the power nozzle to work then the best thing to do is take the nozzle to the local vacuum store(used) and they will tell you the best advice weather it be fix the old one or replace the head. You can pick up a brand new head for around 99.00 up to 350.00 depending on what you want and they have come a long way in the past few years so take a look at a couple new ones.

The nozzle on my machine needs to be cleaned. there is lint in it


If its just the nozzle, soak it in a mixture of Dawn, baking soda & hot water apprx 5-10 min. After soaking take an old paint brush, sponge applicator or several pipe cleaners and just start to work it, The gunk should start to break up. If not, you may need to enlist the help of a butter knife to help your cause.

The steam comes out of the water reservoir cap instead of the steam Jet Nozzle.


I can only guess since I have never worked on one of these units, but I think you lost a gasket on the cap. Pressure must build in the reservoir before being forced out the nozzle.

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 :)

Power steam elite not registering descale


We had this problem whilst still in warranty. Without question they sent a new iron. We have only used the di-ionised water in the new one making descaling much less painful

We have a Magimix M 200 Purchased at John Lewis Registration No: 278739 approx Dec 2008. We have not got the purchase receipt. The nozzle for frothing up the milk is not working at all so we are unable to...


There might be a blockage in the steam tube or the frothing nozzle itself. Make sure the nozzle is clean and try inserting a pipe cleaner gently into the steam tube to clear any blockage that may be preventing steam from passing through.

Polti steam cleaner


It should go just below the red providing steam isn,t escaping from the cap otherwise you won,t get the pressure build up to enable it to come out when you pull the trigger
