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.

The little cup that comes with it to fill it has a line on it and says "220ml MAX". I would not recommend putting anything but water into it!

SOURCE: Steamer filler cap is sealed
You need a little more leverage--either a strap type tool or a pair of adjustable width pliers that span the width of the cap. Try running hot water over the cap first which may loosen it enough to remove by hand.

if it is anything like mine...you push the cap down, give it a full turn & release. keep doing this (maybe 5 or more times, and eventually it will start unscrewing easily without needing to push down
