How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Check if the mop is properly plugged into the outlet and turned on. If it is on and still not functioning, try resetting the mop by plugging it into a different outlet. Add water to the tank if it is empty then try selecting the `STEAM` setting once more.
What Should I Use? Good quality tap water. If you don`t have issues with hard water stains and buildup, your tap water is good.
First, check to make sure the unit is plugged in and is in a working outlet. Next, check to make sure there is water in the tank. It is very important to make sure you are ONLY using water to fill the tank. Other solutions may cause breakdown of the gasket and/or other parts of the machine.
Check for a clogged hose or filter; unclog the hose and replace the filter. Wait 45 minutes for the vacuum to cool; then plug in the vacuum. Turn the power switch to the β€œI-On” position to start the vacuum. If the vacuum still does not start, contact Customer Service at 1-800-798-7398.
Not Plugged In

You will notice a blinking blue light on the front of the device when plugged in correctly. If the light fails to come on then try to plug into a different outlet.

First, attach the mop pad to the mophead, then fill the reservoir with water using the filling flask. Once the steam mop is plugged in, it takes about 20 seconds for the steam to build up, and you`ll hear the mop hissing. During the first use, I found that I had to pump the handle a few times to prime the steam pump.
We recommend draining the water from your steam appliance every 30 days, in other words – do not let water sit in your steam appliance for more than 30 days.
A good rule of thumb is to have your carpet professionally steam cleaned at least once a year, twice if you seem to track a lot of dirt in. This way you get a good, deep cleaning and don`t let the dirt build up. Vacuum once or twice a week to keep it clean in between your steam cleaning sessions.
Applicable on SC505, SC505a & SC505N — The Shark Professional Portable Steam Cleaner takes approximately 6 minutes to reach its working temperature and is ready for use when the red light on the side of the unit turns green.
To prolong the life of your steam mop, we recommend using distilled water in the tank. Make sure you only add water to the tank – chemicals or cleaning solutions (including vinegar) may damage the steam mop and could be unsafe. For best results, sweep or vacuum your floors prior to cleaning with your steam mop.

I have a Hoover SteamVac SpinScrub with Clean Surge Carpet Cleaner. I loaned the cleaner to my son, who lives 3 hours away from me. My son returned the Steam Cleaner to me on Easter Sunday. My son failed to return the Owner’s Manual. I need to clean my ottoman. I have never used the upholstery & stair cleaning tool. Would you be able to e-mail me the instructions for this chore? My e-mail address is: [email protected]. My name is Kay. Thank you!
