We had the same problem but discovered it was because the steam hose had come adrift from it's fitting inside the handle. Dismantling the handle, re-attach the hose, re-assemble the handle and use some tie grips to hold the very poor design together and the problem was solved.

Easy steam express ll not steaming


The problem with the DD steam mop is not getting steam out but trying to get it to keep coming out. If U disassemble the plastic housing around the handle U will see a small part connected to 2 hoses, one going to the water reservoir the other going to the heating unit. This is the pump which provides water to the heating unit, and if this fails U won't get steam. U can try disassembling this and try to get the piston to move more freely. A loud clicking sound coming from this should indicate good movement and a feeble click click click may indicate restricted movement.
Hope this helps

The steam in my handheld steam shot does not seem to be very hot therefore the surfaces, specially cloth ones do not get clean properly. What should I do?


If it steams it is as hot as it is going to get. Water steams at 212 degrees F at sea level so the only way to increase that heat is to pressurize that steam to a higher density than sea level which is about 32lbs per sq. in. Your steamer has no method to pressurize that steam to increase that heat. Conversely, as the pressure decreases, say you live in Denver which is about 5000 ft above sea level, then that steam will only get to about 203 degrees F. (See: http://whatscookingamerica.net/boilpoint.htm) Steam Cleaning at best is a poor method of cleaning as all it does is saturate the clothing item with water, which in theory loosens dirt, but no way is provided to remove the dirt. A rug shampooer has a vacuum that sucks the dirt away from the carpet along with the suds for a better cleaning method. In my opinion a hand steamer will only remove wrinkles at best.

I have an electrolux enviro multi steamer and have no instructions. I filled it up and turned it on and it is steaming out everywhere. The handle became too hot to use. What am I doing wrong ?


Check the handle. There is a Button which you press and hold and one which slides up and down. The slide button is so you don't have to depress the other button (when you are wanting constant steam, ie., for cleaning floors etc...).

I would suggest that the slide button is engaged (meaning in the on position), slide it back the opposite way and see if this solves the problem. Regards, Tina

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.

Heats up and produces steam but the release button does not open the flow of steam.


To remedy this, I did the following:
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach 
3) Once all parts are removed, you can see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it cranking against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you fill find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button (not sure if that helped in my case, but it was something I tried along the way). When the brass button moves in and out (again, it won't move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
This worked for my unit!
