Having problems with your Vacuums ?

We are VERY disappointed in our Steam mop. After only using twice in one year and following all the instructions, went to use it yesterday, Oct. 7th and could not get any steam out? It started up and it felt like it was heated, but no steam therefore could not clean our floors?


Answers :

Unfortunately they do not work well at all but if it means anything to you your not alone. Many people have complained about the same issue. To be quite honest there really is nothing better than very hot water in a bucket with a bit of cleaning solution and just be sure to squeeze out the mop well before you put it on the floor. It does not need to be sopping wet. Steam, is just water anyways and you can get steaming hot water from your tap in the house bso really its no different.I hope you kept the receipt so you can return it. I hope I didn't ruin your day and if this did help be sure to remember to click on the yes bow on your way out . Thanks again and good luck.

I have a Euro-Pro Shark Steam Pocket Mop. I used it twice last year, and then it stopped producing steam. Is there any way that I could easily fix this without dangerous chemicals? Everytime I call the company, I can't get anyone. The unit heats up, but doesn't produce steam. I've tried white vinegar to no avail. I am afried of using clr after reading that the unit blew up on somoone. I am visually impaired.

Over heating? My 10 gallon 4HP shop vac has started shutting off after about 30 sec. after I turn it on to use. It smells real hot after I shut it off. I have changed the filter and the bag, which did not solve the problem. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? It's only about 31/2 years old and I really don't use it all that much, mainly for getting up dust and cob-webs from my garage.

DZ9080 IRON IS NOT VERY OLD, BUT HAS HEATING AND STEAMING PROBLEMS. IT MAY BE ALL HEATING RELATED! MY WIFE WILL SOMETIMES JUST LEAVE IT "ON" FOR TWO HOURS AND THEN IT WILL START STEAMING AGAIN. I CANNOT MAKE SENSE OF THE HEATING INDICATORS; SOMETIMES IT WILL STAY GREEN NO MATTER WHERE YOU SET THE DIAL ---- AND IT DOES NOT FEEL HOT! WHEN I TRIED IT AGAIN TODAY, THE SHOT-OF-STEAM WORKED FOR A WHILE (AND THE SPRAY WORKED), BUT THEN ALL IT WOULD DO IS DRIP WATER AT THE TIP WHEN TIPPED DOWNWARD.


I couldn't find any warranty information on this iron, but I suspect that the heating element either has a faulty connection or part of it has cracked, making contact at time, but poor contact at other times. The unit will have to be taken apart an ... Rowenta Vacuums

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition
