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: does not give steam.

Actually there was no category for clothes steamer, and before entering information I was prompted to pick a category so I chose vacuums hoping that when my problem was diagnosed it would be understood that the problem is a clothes steamer that has stopped giving off steam. Please help if you can. I appreciated your time.

My Hometek Steam Penguin wont produce steam


Hi
I opened whole thing and found that no suction to the pump or pressure from the pump. Opened the clear box which contains the pump and the el-motor. Then I opened the white pump and found it was assembled wrong way round. There are two tiny one way silicon "valves" which should produce the flow of the water to the heater. I also wiped off part of the sticky grease away. Now it works. 4 hours work, but it was interesting to learn the function :) .

I have the steamtek steam cleaner for 5 months and it will no longer steam!


We had the same problem. I took the unit completely apart and it seems it doesn't like our hard water. I took off the head (one screw at the base and it slips off) and I put a tooth pick into the steamer hole to clean any clogs. Then I ran a cup of CLR through it with equal parts water and it runs fine but not as good as it did new. We are going to only run distilled water through it from now on. Hope this helps!
