Question about Scunci SS1000 Handheld Steam Cleaner

1 Answer

I have the scunci 1000 steamer- it was sitting for a while and the cap on the top looks like its corroded and i cannot remove it from the steamer - i just bought it a year ago, but i think the salt or vinegar from cleaning it got trapped in the top and i tried everything i could think of to loosen the top so i could pour water into the unit and use it again; otherwise it is in perfect condition, but i tried even pliers and i cannot loosen it and i dont want to break it, but am so frustrated - what do i do? elaine schwart

Hi, Elaine, W/D here.
Corroded items are difficult to break loose as the corrosion builds up a layer that binds the parts together. Try this, as I usually have good luck with this method:
Tap around the perimeter of the cap with a wooden hammer (like a meat hammer). Don't hit it too hard, you don't want to hit it like you're driving a nail, but somewhat softer. Then, try wiggling the cap open then closed. Once it breaks loose a bit, you'll find that it will move only so far, and then bind up again as the corrosion gets to a built up point. Back and forth, tap,tap, tap, back and forth....etc. You'll get the cap open a little more with each cycle, then it will finally open.
Best regards, --W/D--

Scunci ss1000 handheld steamer


My Scunci MS 1000 heats and builds up steam, but the steam does not release from the spout when the release button is pushed. Plenty of pressure is built up inside (escapes when cap is opened). What is the problem?

Scunci steam cleaner not spraying steam


Unscrew the screw on the handle and remove handle. Remove rubber where top screws on. Remove two screws and the top and now unscrew the black pipe where the steam comes out. Now remove the button and see the small metal protrusion on the pot where the button was. Hit it with a hammer a few times softly to remove the scale buildup until the metal starts moving in and out again. I also sprayed it with a little silicone spray. Now put everything back together again. My steamer now works beautifully again!
