20 Most Recent Euro-Pro Shark SC-505 Handheld Steam Vacuum Questions & Answers

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.

Dang everyone is looking to sell you stuff and not help. I'm having the same issue too. How did they tell you that you should have done that then? Everything I read says push down and turn.

Those things work off of suction, which spins a cog wheel that rotates and spins brush via a small belt. Disassemble the brush and check belt. Make sure the apparatus is clean and free of debris

Use 12 ounces of water.
It's best not to use extremely hard water in the Eureka steamer due to mineral deposits it may leave behind.
If you need cloths for your Eureka 300 or 310/311/313A see my listings on eBay by searching "eureka steamer."
This is a great floor cleaning machine. I have several for use on large areas of linoleum and sealed hardwood in our home.

don't waste your time. It's not going to work anyway. Throw it away.

Shark is not made to repair and there are no parts available. It's disposable. Most vac shops won't touch them.

DO NOT purchase ANY Shark products ! They don't perform well, don't last, and cannot be repaired. Save your money and some frustration.

Where do I find replacement parts to my SC-505?
Posted by deh127 on Jul 07, 2008
My dog ate thought the hose coming right from the steamer. I need to get a new hose and I never got the attachment that cleans the floor where can I get that? I only got the hose and then attachments that would clean a grill.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best place to get the added attachments for the Euro-Pro Shark SC-505 Handheld Steam Vacuum is to contact the Shark / Fantom factory manufacturer of which I will list below and this is a specialty vacuum and most local vacuum cleaner dealers do not have the parts but can order them for you if they are connected with Shark / Fantom. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
