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.
Heating Element. A common cause to your cleaner not producing steam can be a failed heating element. As the heater is used to heat up the water, if that has ruptured or burnt out your steam cleaner will not produce any steam. With the water tank filled and switched on the steamer should sound like a boiling kettle.
If your mop head is removable, throw the head into the dishwasher or washing machine. If not, add dish detergent into a bucket and lather the mop head in soapy water before rinsing. This will remove stains and other debris that didn`t come off in the running water.
Like all brushes, it`s important to remove any tangles around your DuoClean to make sure it can turn properly. In the long-term, you may also want to replace the brushes once the bristles become worn. Fortunately, Shark has made it easy to remove, clean, and replace both the brushes on the Shark NV801UK.

The Shark Steam Mop Replacement Pads 2-Pack is the cleaning pad option that works with the Euro-Pro XT3101 mop. These pads easily attach to the mop at the bottom and the pads can be machine washed and used multiple times over. This can help you to save money since they can be reused.

Check you are using carpet mode. If you have the settings on floor mode, then the brush roll will not spin. If the setting is on carpet mode, then the brush will turn.
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.

The Nozzle is not Fully Attached

The nozzle needs to be completely attached so that the power can reach the brush. When the vacuum head is on the floor, push down on the handle to make sure the connection is complete. If this does not work, something may be blocking the connection. Clear out any debris and try again.

Descale your machine – it`s no secret that water contains minerals, which can be left behind (in the form of limescale) in your steam cleaner`s boiler tank and hinder the performance of the appliance.
Breaking in a Mop 1. Fill mop bucket with water (120ºF–140ºF) and correct dilution of cleaning solution 2. Submerge mop in solution and agitate for two to three seconds 3. Thoroughly wring out and rinse 4.
Are SharkBite fittings reusable? Yes. SharkBite fittings can be reused for testing purposes but any fitting used repeatedly for testing should not be used in a permanent installation.
Mop heads. Mopping the floor is a great way to keep your home looking clean, but it will mean that the mop head will collect bacteria over time. While you should rinse the head after every use, it`s also recommend you replace it every two months.
Spread the mop head material near the top of the mop to expose metal handle and c-pin. Remove c-pin by pulling it out of pole. 3. Squeeze the 2 blue buttons at the base of the plastic handle and slide mop head up and off the pole.
Go for the shark`s most sensitive areas – its nose, its gills, and especially its eyes. Dig in and keep pressing until it lets you go. Remember that sharks will often thrash around once they have a bite, so if you can, give it a “hug”.

If you look at the each lens you will see two sections on the top edge of each lens that looks like this |___| |___| about 1 1/2 inches in from each end. Put a small screwdriver in the middle of each one of these (I used 2 screwdrivers at once) and pry out.

Shopvac 90L400 quit working (4 years old). Thought the switch was bad but not the problem. I read that there is a fuse link in the motor that frequently burns up.
