    I have the same exact situation - mine is practically new but the water barely gets warm and no steam. I went on the Euro Pro website to send a customer complaint, but it says server is busy-try later. *sigh*

SOURCE: Vinegar

Do not add anything to the tank.... Vinegar is corrosive and that would potentially be very bad.

Why the euro pro shark mop model S3202 Get hot but does not steam


Unplug your mop, add vinegar, plug back in, let it sit inside a sink or tub. When all vinegar has been steamed out, then unplug, Now add "DISTILLED WATER" and repeat until all brown residue left over is gone. Then, from now on, only use "DISTILLED WATER".

Steam wont come out although filled with water and heated as required


If you are using tap water the holes where the water comes out are plugged. You will have to take it apart to clean. After that you should use distilled water you can purchase at your local grocery store. That is what my wife uses after I insisted.

There are a number of possibilities. I have this appliance and I'm not a fan of it!

  1. Check the water filter isn't void, which is behind the main water tank at the front. It should have a sandy colour to it and if it is low or discoloured, then it requires to be replaced.
  2. Fill the water tank with water and the back tank (if fitted) with clear "white" vinegar and switch on. If there is only one tank fill half with water and vinegar. Then press the trigger on the handle. If nothing comes out, You will need to buy a new water limescale filter which can be purchased from Vax UK.

Shark Euro Pro Steamer


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

I need operating manual for vapor white wing steamer


This is from an Amazon review. I have misplaced my manual and was searching for a pdf file without any luck. I think I have it under control if I only knew where to put my distilled water.Basic operation of the WhiteWing is:

1. Fill the tank with distilled water
2. Attach the hose to the steamer.
3. Attach the extension handles and attachment you want.(Be sure to watch the video and read the instruction booklet. Some of the attachments have specific uses and setup instructions)
4. Lock the finger trigger.
5. Plug it in.
6. Turn it on.
7. Wait 20 min. or until the pressure gauge reads between 3.5-4.5.
8. Get ready to rock - press the steam release button, unlock the finger trigger and start steaming.

For many jobs such as countertops, shower stalls, stovetops, you will need to follow behind the steam, wiping with a cloth to remove the released dirt from the surface. Some jobs may require you to start with a non-toxic cleaner or grease remover such as Orange Clean or Method brand cleaners. Remember, you'll be breathing in vaporized cleaner. So be sure it's something non-toxic and non-irritating. I prefer the Method brand cleaners.

Shark s3501 plugged


I had same problem with no steam... ready to throw in the dumpster!
I tried to it take apart. (kind of hard) still ready to throw it!
Then I thought about CLR!
I put about 1/2 cup in, turned on and let set for about 20 to 30 minutes.
I really did not think this would work but... Amazing! I actually got STEAM!!!!!!
Next I dumped out what was left, put in distilled water and ran for another 30 minutes on high.
Will use CLR again before final clean out and 2 full tanks of distilled water before I use again.

Shark S3101 Steam Mop won't produce steam


You have to use distilled water in the steam mop. regular water clogs it up and causes it not to work.

The mop just stopes making steam to the head. Could this be A heat coil problem? Also a lot of others have had This happen.


On these steam mops, you have to use distilled water, if you use tap water and do not have a house water softner or some kind of water filtration system, the water running thru the tubes of the steam mop
will develop calcium deposits, these deposits are caused by hard water and will clog up the tubes, and keep the mop from producing steam, then you will have to replace the lines. i own this brand of steam
mop and had the same problem you had, I replaced the lines and started using distilled water, and have not had any problems since and that was last year. good luck!

Somewhat new_ leaking dark water on white shirt- washed then repeated


I stopped vacuuming my shirts ages ago, and mostly everyone else did, so I assume you're talking about an iron?

The dark water is just tap water that was sitting inside the iron and caused it to rust.

After you rinse the iron several times with distilled water, keep using distilled water from now on.
It's about $1.00 per gallon and you can buy it in any supermarket.
When you use distilled water in your iron, there is no need to empty it every time you're done with the weekly ironing.

How do I clean my iron?


I am assuming that you have scale or lime build up on your iron. Make a solution of half white vinegar and half distilled water. Pour it in the water container on your iron. Turn your iron on its highest setting and set for steam. Wait about 15 minutes and turn off the iron. When water cools pour off the remaining water/vinegar solution. Fill the iron with distilled water and turn on. Let it heat and then cool then pour off that solution. Do this till the poured off water runs clear. If you have scale on the bottom of the iron you can clean that with an old toothbrush dipped into warm white vinegar. There may be easier ways to do this but this is eco friendly and it works the best of anything I have tried.
