Steamer keeps shutting off.

My steamer works for about 2 minutes and then shuts off. I tried different water levels-makes no difference. Tried without removable ring-no difference. Tried different time settings- no difference. Please help!

    Same problem. Tried different water levels, more/less time. Still no luck!

    It seems to run for a max. of 40 minutes and then shuts off. I then cannot get it to run after that for more than 2 minutes either. I've ruined dinner already cause it won't start again. I'll try the cold water thing .

I have the same issue, but if I use cold water (15 C, 60 F), the steamer works. Hope this help.

    I have this steamer and found that if you clean the heating post in the center some times it gets covered with scale. Remove this scale with a knife and the unit doesen't over heat and keeps working fine. Works for me .......

Try decalcifying it. It could be affecting the temperature gauge. Pour some white vinegar into the water reservoir and let it soak for a bit (10 mins) then rinse it out and try it.

Steamer does not work on my cuisinart steamer/convection oven

If the steamer function is not working on your Cuisinart steamer/convection oven, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:
1. Check Power and Settings: Ensure that the steamer/convection oven is properly connected to a power source and turned on. Make sure you have selected the correct steaming function and set the desired time and temperature.
2. Water Level: Check the water level in the steaming reservoir or water tank. Some steamers require a minimum amount of water to generate steam. Ensure that the water level meets the manufacturer's recommended guidelines.
3. Water Reservoir Placement: Confirm that the water reservoir is correctly placed in the steamer/convection oven. It should be securely seated in its designated position.
4. Steam Vent: Ensure that the steam vent or release valve is not blocked or obstructed. Any blockage in the steam vent can prevent steam from being released properly. Clean any debris or buildup that may be affecting the vent.
5. Steam Function Timing: Some steamers require preheating before steam is generated. Consult the user manual to determine if the steamer/convection oven requires preheating and for how long. Allow sufficient time for the steamer to reach the appropriate temperature.
6. Clean the Steamer: If the steamer has not been used for an extended period, it may have accumulated mineral deposits or limescale. Clean the steamer according to the manufacturer's instructions to remove any buildup that could be affecting its performance.
7. Contact Cuisinart Support: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it's recommended to reach out to Cuisinart customer support for further assistance. They can provide specific troubleshooting steps for your model or advise on potential hardware issues that may require repair or replacement.
When contacting customer support, provide them with the model number, a detailed description of the issue, and any troubleshooting steps you have already attempted. This information will help them assist you more effectively.

Hoover twin tank handheld steamer WH20100

Step 1 - How It Works
A garment steamer is a hand held device. Water is placed in the tank and is heated until it becomes steam. The steam is directed at pressure through a nozzle to the garment. The heat relaxes all the fibers in the garment, which eliminates the wrinkles in the clothing.
Step 2 - Preparation
Put cold water in the water tank of the handheld steamer. Check to ensure all the parts are properly connected. Turn the device on and allow the garment steamer to heat until steam forms.
Step 3 - Shirts
Put the shirt on a hanger. You should button the collar and a couple of buttons below it. To make life as easy as possible, hang the shirt from something that will easily let you reach all around it-a shower curtain rail is ideal for this.
Steam from the bottom of the shirt, moving upward. Direct the steam at the material and pay particular attention to the collar area. After you've finished, let the shirt hang for a minute before putting it in the closet. This will allow the dampness to air out.
Step 4 - Dresses And Skirts
Dresses and skirts can be made of many different types of fabric, with different printing, so special care is needed with these. Where the material itself is delicate, such as silk or velvet, make sure that the nozzle of the garment steamer never directly touches the material.
Where clothing has been embroidered or screen-printed you should turn the item of clothing inside out and steam that side instead. That way there's no risk of damaging the print or embroidery, and the wrinkles will still disappear. When you've finished, give the clothing a minute for the dampness to fade, turn right side out and hang in the closet.
Step 5 - Heavier Material
Where you're steaming a heavier material, you might well find that it needs several steamings before all the wrinkles go. As an alternative to this you can also use the garment steamer on the inside and the outside of the piece of clothing.
Step 6 - Water Level
Check the water level in the tank after each item of clothing. This way there will be no danger of the water running low. If you let the water run out you can end up damaging the garment steamer. On the other hand, if you put too much water in the tank, all that will come out will be water, not steam.
Step 7 - Other Uses
A garment steamer is surprisingly versatile. You can also use it on drapes, upholstery and even wigs. Many people pack travel size garment steamers when they go on trips.

I just divcovered my Rival Rice and vegetable steamer in my storage area. I loved it and used it quite a bit and can't figure out how it ended up in storage. I'm not sure of the model number - but my...

For white rice, put 2 cups water in the bottom and 2 cups water in the rice dish along with 2 cups rice (also in the rice dish!). Plug it in and when the light goes out, it's ready. Also, one thing to remember is to clean the little well after each use with a bit of vinegar so it doesn't build up hard water deposits (unless you're lucky enough not to have hard water!) It makes a BIG difference in the rice steamer's operation. BTW: each mark on the side of the steamer's base is about 1 cup which equals about 20 minutes of steam time. Hope that helps. -Donna

Heating on the 4450 goes off

After posting the problem I remebered that my mother used to use vinegar to desolve mineral resedeu from water containers and coffee machines. So I filled the heater well with some vinegar aqnd let it sit over night and it desolved the resedue. Under all that grit was actually metal and on a trial run the machine worked fine. So I'm pretty sure the problem is solved.

Rival automatic steamer rice cooker 4450 guide needed

Here's all the info I've been able to find:

The older Rival rice cooker steamer should have a base, a lid, steamer basket, and rice bowl.

To cook rice, fill center basin of base with water. Place the rice bowl on basin. Add rice and water as follows. For white rice add water in a 1:1 ratio to rice plus 1/2 cup. For brown rice add water in a 1:1 ratio to rice plus 3/4 cup. Examples: 1 cup white rice, 1-1/2 cup water; 2 cups brown rice, 2-3/4 cups water. Put lid on and plug in and in about 50 minutes you should have delicious rice.

Timing is Everything
Whether using the Rival Steamer for a main dish or for a side dish, cooking is easy. But not Fast. Rice and steamed vegetables actually take twice as long to cook in this steamer. The simplicity comes since you add your rice or vegetables in one step. No waiting for one thing to happen before you can do the next. Put water and fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry or rice in the basket or bowl that come with the unit, cover, plug in and wait for the light to go off per the timing chart.
1/4 cup water takes 6 -7 minutes
1/2 cup water takes 10-12 minutes
3/4 cup water takes 16-17 minutes
1 cup water takes 19-22 minutes
1.25 cups water takes 24-26 minutes
1.5 cups water takes 26-30 minutes
2 cups water takes 38-39 minutes
2.5 cups water takes 43-44 minutes
3 cups water (max fill) takes 45-50 minutes.

Steamed Chocolate Pudding (From the Rival Steamer Guide)
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1.5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped nuts
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Cream butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beat well. Add egg and melted chocolate; blend well. Add milk alternately with dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Fold nuts into batter. Pour into greased 8"x4" loaf pan. Cover pan with aluminum foil. Place pan in steamer basket. Cover and steam until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm with **Marshmallow Cream Sauce. Water: 1 cup. Time: 19-22 min.

**Marshmallow Cream Sauce:
16 large marshmallows
1/3 cup cream
In a small saucepan, combine ingredients and melt over low heat. Serve over Steamed Chocolate Pudding.
