SOURCE: My Europro shark steam mop won't steam, light on but no steam.

Hard water deposits. I ran some white vinegar through mine, like a coffee maker, and it worked for a while, but clogged again. So I unplugged it, let it cool and turned it over in the bathtub and squirted a small amount of Lime-Away into the hole where the steam comes out. Let it soak for 5- 10 minutes and it is working like is is brand new.

SOURCE: The hose as torn along the metal ring. How do I

Hi Jim,
SmartAlec from here.
It is possible to take the end off and re-attatch (but its very fiddly and a real pain). You need to simultaneously push in the small oval pins on the side of the hard plastic part and pull the hose out. Be aware that there is 2 tiny springs inside and if they dont go back in the hose will not lock on. Once you have hose out simply cut out the bad part and reinsert to the end.
If this is too hard or some small parts go missing you will need a new hose.
You can get a new hose from

SOURCE: The hose on my spot bot has torn

I called one of the local service centres to order one 2 months ago, still haven't heard back. Last weekend was our city's curb giveaway weekend and I got a busted Bissell Pro Heat 2X Turbo which I removed the hose from. You can order them online, just not from Bissell directly.
Cut the old hose off, you won't need it.
You have to disassemble the unit mostly. Several screws on the bottom, several under the collection tank, etc... The tubing is held together with Brass tubing clamps, they're not glued. The inner hose needs to run inside, through to the outer channel underneath the 90degree bend that the outer hose plugs into and will connect to a T shaped 3 way hose connector. My hose was wider and needed the holes to be widened. If you have to use the same outer hose connector, the coiled hose will twist in, once you remove the old hose but the new hose will need to be siliconed or glued with something that will seal it.
My new salvaged hose had the handle on it already.
It's not a pleasant procedure, have a shower after because you may get sprayed.
That being said, this process is doable, but it isn't a 5 minute fix. It took about 40 minutes all and all.

Eureka HotShot 350A heats up great but no steam when I press button.

Remove water fill cap. Remove rubber washer under cap. Unscrew three phillips head sscrews, one on end of handle, two under rubber washer. Take handle apart. remove clip holding rubber hose onto steam flange. Unloosen plastic steam flange and remove. Using a large pair of pliers or channel locks gently squeeze valve together. It will only move an eighth to a quarter inch. Dove several times until you can depress the pin by hand. Reassemble.

Rowenta Effective DX 1700 model---won't spray water?!

Mine was getting slow to steam, downloaded a manual (could only find model #1900, but close enough), and found out how to clean- fill with water, heat to the highest temp, hold over the sink horizontally and hold the steam lever over to the "self clean" position for one minute. That's supposed to purge the system of junk. Manual site: It's a free download.

No Steam after heating up

Sounds like the switch on the handle or the steam release solenoid on the steam chamber is faulty ,use a volt meter/tester to see if you have current to the solenoid when you turn on the switch.
