    Went out and bought a new Shark steamer today but thought I'd give one last shot to repairing the old one. Followed the instructions from above by D. Floyd Kolb and in 20 minutes the old one was working like brand new. Thank you Mr. Kolb. You saved me a lot of money.

The heating device if left unattended calcifies. Run Vinegar through it and pump it through and it will clean the steamer. Do this often. Or mix 1 part vinegar to 5 parts water. If found the heat resistant tube broken at the connection into the heating element so water was not going into it, just dripped out. I repaired the tube by cutting the bad portion. There was enough tube to allow me to do this without replacing the tube. I Still had to use the vinegar to clean out the heating tank.

I bought a Shark 2-in-1 Steam pocket MOP at Target 5 months ago,I used it 3 times and now the steaming isn't working. My Shark is S2902 what can I do with it? Could youhelp me with it, please?


It seems strange that it failed so quickly. Don't use tap water, it will wreck the element and potentially block up the galleries. I have a budget tip you can try. Mix up a solution of citric acid powder (safe to use - it's a baking ingredient) in DISTILLED WATER. A tablespoon per 2 cups should be strong enough. Make sure the powder is sufficiently dissolved and add it to the steamer tank. Turn it on and wait for a while (maybe 10 - 15 mins?) and pump the mop on the floor - with a bit of luck, it will purge out the steamer and start working. Drain it out and thoroughly rinse the tank. Refill with distilled water and use it until the lines and galleries are free of the powdered acid solution. Store the steamer EMPTY of all water and in future only use distilled water (citric acid powder does an amazing job of cleaning electric kettles too)

My compact steamer does not let the steam out when I press the black release button help?


I examined mine. There is literally NO hole in the steam wand for the steam to exit. It's a wonder the thing didn't blow up. Take it back and be glad you still have your face.

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 could try the following steps, if you have not done so already. Some of these steps may seem like common sense, but it's for people to forget about checking the least expensive part to replace first, so if some of the steps are those that you have already tried, then feel free just to skip through to the ones you have not tried already.
  1. 1
    Make sure the power cord is plugged firmly into the outlet. The steam mop will not start if it the power cord is loose.
  2. 2
    Check the fuse box or circuit breaker connected to the outlet the steam mop is plugged in to. Replace any blown fuses. Reset any tripped breakers.
  3. 3
    Check the water tank if the Shark steam mop will not produce steam. Add water to the tank if it is empty. The mop will not make steam without water in the tank. To fill the tank, turn the tank cap counterclockwise and lift it up to remove it. Set the filling funnel into the tank opening. Pour water through the funnel into the tank until the water level reaches the "Max" fill line on the tank. Replace the cap.
  4. 4
    Inspect the microfiber cleaning pad if the steam mop is leaving water on the floor. If the microfiber pad is too wet, it will leave water on the floor. Unplug the mop from the wall outlet. Replace the microfiber cleaning pad. To replace the pad, move the latch strips out of the hooks on the mop head. Pull the pad off. Set the new cleaning pad on the mop head. Hook the latch strips onto the hooks on the mop head.
  5. 5
    Use distilled water if the steam mop is leaving white spots on the floor. Hard water may cause white spots to be left.
If none of the above work, then is it something that you purchased recently, and is new? If you did, then it could still be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty regardless of whether or not the original length of the warranty has expired. This could be due to the fact that you have received a product that has some sort of manufacturing fault, rather than it stop working through misuse by the user.
If it's a common problem, then you will more then likely be able to return it to the manufacturer and have it replaced for a new one, let alone repaired :-) - This only applies to whether or not the item is New though :-).
Hope this info helps

(1) take the tank off and reassemble to assure you sealed to the lower handle.

Bissell 1770 Quicksteamer Lightweight: the solution doesn't come out of the steamer


Check the valve on the tank, push it in and see if water comes out ok. Check the rod, is it going up and down when you squeeze the trigger. Sometimes it breaks and won't depress the receiver to release the water, part #2035617. Or you may have a clogged line and sometimes running a mix of water and vinegar will clean them out.

Bissell 1698 Powersteamer no spray


A simple thing to check is make sure the round seal is on the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank not sitting loose in then hole that the tank valve goes into. Could be a problem with the flow indictor cap leaking air. Is the top and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the plastic breaks loose and the top will rise enough that it raises the tank so water won't flow. Your pump may be bad.
