    dear Fixya earlier today I sent a reply through this site to say it hadn't worked and to ask where the trigger switch is etc. I was expecting a reply to that instead you have sent me my original letter. Amymillie

These machines like to be used regularly. if allowed to sit (especially after using tap water) they may buld up lime deposits on valves and cause them to stick. you could try filling with vinegar and let set, also tilt it so vinegar runs into valve area. you could heat the vinegar and it will run through the trigger valve area. if this doesn't work you'll need to replace trigger valve.

    Valve is attached to trigger, may have to replace handle and or hose assembly. on small units (quart or less capacity) there are usually no parts available.

My polti steam cleaner wont work when i click trigger


Check the wand and line for calcium build up especially in the nozzle. Hard water will deposit a lot of calcium in the system, which needs to be cleaned regularly to keep it running freely.

Either the solenoid vale is stuck open all the time if there is no click when you pull the trigger or the "o" ring is split or missing where the tool fits on

POLTI VAPORETTO PROBLEMS


Hi, It is the solenoid that is sticking, It there fore needs opening up, the solenoid valve stripping and cleaning, or replace at a cost of about £12 then putting back together. they don,t like being left and not used. It is possable if you keep clicking for it to start working again.

No steam polti 2001r, heats up clicks, but no steam!!!!!!


the solenoid valve isn,t operating when you pull the trigger. It is caused by either the coil has burnt out on the solenoid or the valve itself is stuck

It should go just below the red providing steam isn,t escaping from the cap otherwise you won,t get the pressure build up to enable it to come out when you pull the trigger

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full


Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.
