The steam generator probably has it's own circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel. Turning that off, will stop the alarm. Most steam generators have a reservoir that holds the water to be heated, as well as a float valve that opens to fill the reservoir as needed. I suspect the float valve is stuck and the the sensor is reading it as low water supply. You won't be able to investigate that, until you turn the circuit breaker OFF.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

    Roy, apparently someone has turned OFF the water supply line to the steam generator's reservoir or since it hasn't been used in there months, there may be a calcium buildup in the system. Especially, if you're using well water. Here is a link to your Owners Manual, that should prove invaluable in troubleshooting and solving the problem. Copy and paste the link into your web browser.

    kindly let me know, have you followed this. When you begin using the steam cabin, do not start with periods of longer that 10 to 12 minutes at a temperature of 35°C. Just need to know yes or no for the solution.

Hi, my Electrolux EWX12550w washing machine and dryer, working fine on was but when I'm drying it it starts at 13 minutes then keeps working but sticks on 10min also I get an err sign it's E10

Family error code E10 is visible to customers and (could be E11,E12 and E13 only visible in service mode) means problem
with filling water.

I suggest rapid reading alarm code when appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. during the execution of the washing
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and the nearest option buttons for at least two seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the last alarm.
The alarm sequence continues as long as the two buttons are held down.

E11 - Problems with water fill for washing
E12 - Problems with water fill for drying
E13 - Water leakage

I believe there are difficulties in water fill for drying.
Water is necessary in the drying phase in order to cool down the steam entering in the drying condenser.
Possible causes: Tap closed or water pressure too low; Drain tube improperly positioned; Water fill solenoid valve is faulty; Leaks from water circuit on pressure switch; Pressure switch faulty; Wiring faulty; PCB faulty

Mr Steam MS Super-1 kW: 10 doesn't generate steam

the first thing the generator should do when you hit the on button is fill. You will hear the water entering the tank. Once the water stops it indicates that the water has reached the water satisfied level, after which you should hear a loud click(your contactor engaging for the heat cycle, newer units will have all three light on the side lit). After this point is you aren't getting any steam after 5 minutes it probably means your heating element may be damaged. It would be best to remove the element at this point from the left side of the unit via 6 bolts and 2 wire leads. Any physical damage on the element such as a pinhole pop, burn mark, melting, or scar will surely prevent the element from heating

Water level to high

Hello, Your in luck, I own a espresso company, my wife runs the drive thru. We just had same problem 3 days ago. And this is what I found out. Our water level was to high and kept filling, and of course because of that no room for steam. This is what you need: it is called auto level circuit board sensor, it normally is hooked right to the back of your water flow gauge. It is like a chip, just get new one by giving parts place your machine name , model etc, and this is something you can do your self. Just tells parts place, water filling to much, and need a new Auto level circuit board sensor. It is a chip about size of postage stamp, runs around 50 bucks. I hope this helps. Thanks mike, ( mr bean man)

Genset does not start , alarm can't reset

what safety caused the alarm. if you cant restart it, it may be cause the problem that originally shut the engine down has not been fixed, it could be water level, low oil, high water temp, low fuel,over voltage, all of the above are probably run through the safeties. over volt, and water temp would probably clear its self after it sat a while. try turning off power to panel. for a couple minutes and see if it will reset, if not check water level. and oil levels

My shaerer expresso machine (ambiente) is giving error, level steam probe, when this happens it will not steam. This problem does not happen all the time and can be cleared by shuting machine off then...

"level steam probe" occurs when it takes more than two minutes to fill the water in the steam boiler. The easiest solution is low water pressure to the machine. Does it have a water filter? replacing it will probably help. Other problems could be the fill valve is not opening fully and or scaled water lines going to the steam boiler. The first thing I would do is activate the hot water tap and look at the pressure. If the water is coming out slow then I know its a restriction to the machine.

Water level alarm

1 - Depends on the type - - Some 'liquid' detectors work on the basis of a 'sperical' cover over the optical sensor - This magnifies the displacement of light (Index of Refraction) suggesting that liquid is in the way, therefore alarming. Some simplistic types are straight forward carbon resistive tracs that detect 'levels' of water, and alarm or light up accordingly (1/2 full gives certain lights etc...)
2 - Don't know what components your using to begin with - so really can't answer this one ...
3 - Some plants 'MUST' have certain amounts of water, and must not go dry...I have a shower room, and can not allow the filter to get blocked, otherwise I get flooded . . A fish tank may need a mechanical systen to keep it filled (you could use a low level voltage detector to advise of low water level) - - Endless applications.

My husband threw away the opereating instructions for our iron.

SELF CLEANINGIt is important to “Self Clean” the iron at least every two weeksto remove scale, calcium, etc. The harder the water, the more often the iron should be self cleaned.1. Set the variable steam control dial to any steam position.2. Fill the water tank up to the “MAX” level.3. Stand the iron on its heel. Plug the iron into the electrical outlet.4.Press the electronic temperature control button until you get the “MAX” temperature setting on the display panel and wait until the iron heats up and temperature setting light stops flashing.5. Turn the variable steam control dial all the way to the right to the self-cleaning position and hold the iron horizontally over the sink (Fig. 8).6. Boiling water and steam will now be ejected from the holes in the soleplate. The impurities and scale are washed away with it. 7. Move the iron back and forth as this happens.8. If there is any water left in the water tank after the iron stops steaming, just empty the remaining water in a sink following the instructions for emptying the iron. 9.Turn the variable steam control dial to the “0” position when the water tank is empty.10.Place the iron back upright on its heel to cool down before storing.

I suggest using KalStop to remove the calcium and minerals built up in the machine. Polti has built the machines to stop working when there is too much calcium in the boiler to prevent further damage.

Cleaning a self cleaning iron

Fill the Iron with water but keep the water level below the max line. Plug in the iron and set the temp to 6 and stand iron on it's heel and allow to heat for 3 mins. Now unplug the iron and take it to a sink move and Hold the variable steam dial in the CLEAN position. There may be some hissing and spitting while cleaning so be careful. Continue to hold the dial in the clean position until all the water has emptied. If necessary rock side to side and back to front to get all the water out.When finished release the steam dial plug in the iron and heat for about 2 mins to dry out the remaining water and unplug.
