Hi
If the wand will allow water to flow, then you have a bad steam thermostat. Its the one on top that doesn't have the red dot on it.

SOURCE: My expresso machine won't steam. Just suddenly stopped. Have tried running vinegar through system, but still won't run through steamer.

Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it.
If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter.
So lets break it down a) solenid
b) micro switch
c) Thermoblock
d) thermostat/ thermol overload
Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

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.

I have a turbosteamer 220 hand steamer. It heats up but won't spray steam


It's most likely the trigger not engaging the piston that releases the steam. Due to the fact that the plastic inside the 220 holding the trigger in place has cracked on both sides.It will need to be taken apart.That's another issue.Be easy on the trigger press down gentle.....

Sunbeam 4710 steamer


The most likely reason they don't fit together perfectly right is because, when I bought the Sunbeam Instant Steamer Model 4710, it only came with 1 steaming tray.

Cooking Rice


Ironically, I came to this site with the same questin you posted. I just found my manual. This is how tha manual tells you to steam rice:

Place one of the steamer baskets on the steamer base.

Place 1 cup of rice and 10 ozs of water in the rice bowl.

Place the rice bowl on the steamer basket and cover the steamer.

Set timer for approximately 32 minutes, depending on your taste.

Good luck!
