The steam comes out of the water reservoir cap instead of the steam Jet Nozzle.


I can only guess since I have never worked on one of these units, but I think you lost a gasket on the cap. Pressure must build in the reservoir before being forced out the nozzle.

Eureka HotShot 350A heats up great but no steam when I press button.


Remove water fill cap. Remove rubber washer under cap. Unscrew three phillips head sscrews, one on end of handle, two under rubber washer. Take handle apart. remove clip holding rubber hose onto steam flange. Unloosen plastic steam flange and remove. Using a large pair of pliers or channel locks gently squeeze valve together. It will only move an eighth to a quarter inch. Dove several times until you can depress the pin by hand. Reassemble.

SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum: how do i add the solution to the steam vac? how mu...


You didn't give a model number so I'll tell you both methods. The F5xxx and F6xxx models have a cap at the top of the clean water tank that doubles as a measuring cup. The cap is about 3 inches in diameter. Fill the cap to the fill line with shampoo and dump it in the tank. Then fill the tank with hot (Not Boiling) water.
The F7xxx series has a 2 section tank. The large section is for hot (Not Boiling) water. The smaller section is for shampoo. Fill the smaller section with shampoo and the Steam Vac will mix the water and shampoo for you in the proper proportion.

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.

Can't get it open


had same problem. Tried pouring boiling water over cap and it seemed to loosen some so I boiled more water and put the steamer top down in a bowl in the kitchen sink and pour the boiling water in and let it sit about 5 minutes. It came loose with some effort. The grooves are the opening are metal and they had started to corrode.Once open coat with wd40.

Can't get the top unscrewed


I had the same problem. Mine had been stored for a year. We had to completely destroy the plastic cap. Once down to the metal underneath we did the boiling water thing. It didn't work at first so we tried it again. And then immediately after applying the boiling water we used ice water to make the metal contract. With pliers on the neck and pliers on the lid we were able to open it. But, I know my husband had to put some strength into it. Hope this helps you all!!!

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.
