I just bought a used Kingavon SC1 1000w hand held steam cleaner & can't get the safety cap off to put water in it. I've tried pushing down & turning the cap but it seems to be stuck. any solutions or ideas where I could get a manual would be appreciated. Thanks

SOURCE: No steam release

I solved the problem, the metal (hot!) release rod gets stuck & needs a little push.
Unfasten the top by prying off the rubber gasket after removing the top. Remove the 2 small phillips screws, then remove the front that holds the nozzle, & remove those 2 phillips screws.
Carefully pry up the top with a putty knife, inside you will see the tip of a metal piston that the plastic release knob is supposed to contact. Set it on its front, & soak the piston with a light household or sewing oil, giving it a few taps with a blunt object occassionaly to loosen, heat up & test before reassembling, but remember, the piston is very hot. When you push on the piston with a screwdriver, it should release the steam, but also stop when you let go. Work with it a little & it will come back to life.

Your heater in the cleaner is either plugged or has quit working, make sure you are getting a good ground for the cleaner. you may want to check the ground pin on the cord and make sure it is not loose or broken.

SOURCE: We have a spot bot that leaks almost the entire

Hi rvo... the nozzle activator (pin that depresses the clean water nozzel) is probably clogged with "gunk". It is easy to remove with a pair of tweezers or needle nose pliers.. rise it under water and reseat in the unit. If this maintenance does not solve the problem I recommend that you take it into your local vacuum repair shop as you may have an internal problem causing this annoying leak. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Karcher SC 1502 steam cleaner can't get cap off water tank


Dear jrider784,
I solved a problem like this on FIXYA, just a few months ago. I gave this solution. Try to fill the machine from somewhere else. You can do this from the outlet. If you manage to do this, put on the machine. ( now you know that when there is hot water in the machine, the tap goes round free for safety). Now as the water starts to cool down....start trying to see if you can unscrew it. My plan is that with the hot water, the safety will start to work again. If the cap does not release the safety on cooling, then there is no other way but to destroy the cap and replace with a new one. Very important to mention that this job must be done by a qualified technician or some one who knows what he is doing. Working with hot water is very dangerous.
Regards,
Fulltech.

I have a clogged Shark super steamer.


I have had a Shark Steam Mop for about 8 months now & all of a sudden it stopped producing steam. I was using it this past weekend & it produced steam as usual then all at once it stopped. When I push down on the handle to make the steam, it does nothing. No sound or steam. I have always used distilled water as well. Any ideas? Could it be clogged. The unit doesn't appear to get very warm now either. Thanks!

if it drips out while the tank is off the machine it couldbe the spring load mechanism in the cap. try soaking it in hot water for a few minutes to swell the rubber then with a pen push the spring plate up and down to lubricate the rubber. then try and see if that works. usually they are gravity fed systems but only works when the tank is in the unit.
