There is condensation in the stand steamer`s hose

To solve this, lift your stand steamer`s head to straighten the hose vertically and hold your steamer in an upright position: This will allow any condensation and steam to flow again. After this, your stand steamer should steam again.

Although some carpet steamers and cleaners have a suction mechanism to remove the cleaning fluid and water from your carpet after cleaning the area, you should only use them for steaming or cleaning a carpet and never use them like a vacuum cleaner.
Make sure this is initially set to the highest setting – you can always then reduce the velocity of the steam as you need during use. Ensure that your water tank cap is securely fitted. The cap on most cleaner`s tanks help to maintain the pressure and seal the steam in the unit, so need to be securely fastened.
If the product is not making steam please check that there is water in the tank fitted at the top. If the product is not making steam please check that there is water in the tank fitted at the top. Pull the tank up and fill it up with water. Please do not add any cleaning solutions to the water in the tank.
“Place the steamer at the top of the garment and gently work your way down,” recommends Sokolowski. For best results, pull down on the bottom of your garment when steaming, ensuring the fabric is taut. This way, as the fibers are steamed, they`re pulled straight and will dry into a smooth, wrinkle-free surface.
Consider your specific needs and preferences when choosing which one to use. If you have hard floors and want a time-saving, deep cleaning solution, a vacuum mop may be worth the investment. If you prefer a more eco-friendly, versatile, and budget-friendly option, a steam mop may be the way to go.
In a nutshell, indeed, vacuum first! Before using a steam carpet washer or cleaner, the carpet should be vacuumed thoroughly with a standard household vacuum cleaner. This would get rid of any small soil particles as well as any gravel or sand that has made its way through the building.
Shark Pocket will not make steam

Check that your water tank is full, if you find it is empty, add water. Also check that the tank is free of any cracks or holes that could cause water to leak, and that the tank is properly seated in the device`s housing.

What should I do if the steam cleaner does not heat up? Check the power cord and fuse, as well as the thermostat and pressure switch. Top up the water. If the water shortage light does not go off, please consult one of our service partners or contact us directly.
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.
How Steam Cleaners Work. Water is heated past the boiling point and forced out as pressurized steam through a nozzle, brush, or other attachment. The vapor loosens dirt and kills dust mites, mold, staph, and other allergens and harmful bacteria. No suction is required, since the high-heat moisture dries quickly.
Ultimately, running your vacuum over your carpets after a professional deep clean is great but remember to do it only after your carpet is completely dry. Vacuuming your carpet when it`s still damp could cause dirt to be transferred from your vacuum cleaner, so patience does pay off.
The spray tip may be clogged. Use a paperclip and insert it into the spray tip to remove a clog. Now plug back in, making sure you are using a working outlet. You will know, as the Ready light will begin to blink when plugged in.
Plug the steamer in. Steamers usually heat up fairly quickly (2-3 minutes). Allow your steamer to heat until steam begins to form. Be sure to let your steamer warm up all of the way to get the best results.

No steam My SV1000 steam cleaner will not make steam. It heats up, but I think the small portholes where the steam comes out are clogged up. Are parts available to change the steam line?

My Europro shark steam mop won’t steam, light on but no steam.
ANSWER : Hard water deposits. I ran some white vinegar through mine, like a coffee maker, and it worked for a while, but clogged again. So I unplugged it, let it cool and turned it over in the bathtub and squirted a small amount of Lime-Away into the hole where the steam comes out. Let it soak for 5- 10 minutes and it is working like is is brand new.

My shark steamer has stopped working after a year of having it (I have already replaced one, I’m a idiot!). My problem; however, is that it will steam, but the steam stops traveling through the actual “mop” part. I plugged it in, wait seconds and start pumping, but the steam builds up until it’s hard to pump. I had to press the button really hard for the bottom to come off and it shot off like a rocket! I tried to stick something through the tubing, but it did nothing. What am I doing wrong? I

While using my mop yesterday, it stopped letting steam come out. Tonight I plugged it up again and you could hear it trying to steam. I push the button in to release the square frame and it pushed out a burst of steam and pushed the head off. Put it back together and it still will not let steam out. No matter how much water is in it.

I purchased a Euro-Pro Steamer Mop 9 months ago and the Mop had just quit steaming. The green light is on and it makes a steaming sound but it is not getting hot and does not shoot out any steam like it should. Does it have an element or something that has gone bad in such a short time???
ANSWER : Hi,
Yeah, element is bad…
