Eureka Hotshot Enviro steamer

After a long period of non-use, my steamer nozzle is clogged. I soaked in vinegar and water, then heated up. Still cannot unclog nozzle. A small bit of steam came out. I will soak overnight, but not sure how to safely and effectively clear nozzle. Is there a deposit removal product i can run through it?

Thanks,
gbmeerkat1

    I love my Enviro Streamer, but mine too has stopped working after it was stored post move. The water definitely heats up and the pressure builds up, but nothing comes out - no steam at all.

    I let my Steamer sit in the garage for a couple of years, and did not know that my son used it without properly draining water from it. I never used tap water, but I assume he did, since there is white deposits all over the inside. My steamer is not holding enough steam pressure plus its spitting water all over. I'd like to know how to safely clean the tank to rid all these deposits. Thank you

Remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the steamer, that holds the center panel on. (Not the screws that hold the whole bottom.) Use a needle the clear the steam holes. Soak the panel in white vinegar for a couple of hours and scrub with aa brush to remove the lime calcium deposits. Check the center hole that goes into the steam and make sure it is clear. Reattach the panel. If the panel does not fit snuggly (either end does not contact the base panel, add two more screws about an inch in from either side. I used stainless steal screws because of the consist moisture. Used screws that are no more than 3/4 on an inch long and about the same diameter as the two you removed.

Try taking the steam head apart and cleaning. If difficult to remove, fill a basin with white vinegar & a small amount of water and let it soak to remove the built up deposits in the system. Remember to only use distilled water when steaming to avoid build up.

My bissell spot lifter model 1716 won't spray water at all, how do i fix this?


ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

Is it okay to run CLR or vinegar through my steamer. We have really hard water and even though we have a water softener and use filtered water, my steamer seems to be clogged


I wouldn't recommend the CLR. My suggestion is to run a cycle using white vinegar, the accepted standby for removing sediment and deposits in small and major appliances. I hope this helps. If it does, please rate my solution. Good luck!

My unit was working perfectly, then all of a sudden the heating unit quit. It's only two months old. What happened?


It's still covered by warranty, so I suggest taking it to where you got it. If they don't have a warranty station, you can find the nearest one on the below site.
