Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My Sunbeam Pro Stream II Teflon shot and spray iron consistently spits water as I try to iron. I don't overfill it and the temperature and steam dials are set correctly. help!


Answers :

How old is the steam iron?
And what type of water have you been using in it during its life?

The reason I ask, is that my Wife's was doing this, and we have fairly 'hard' water,
and she was using water directly from the tap.
After a year or so of this 'hard' water, calcium and minerals build up in the heating chamber in the iron-- Also passageways get clogged, and instead of smooth flowing steam, you get build-up of pressure, and then sputtering and spurting take place, as the clogged passageways try to pass the steam to where it needs to be.

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.

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution tank to test without ay success. It is like it loses it's prime whenever you try to use a solution mix. Once you set it back to water rinse only and go through the priming steps, it is OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

November 2008 I bought a Simac Stirella 9000D steam generator iron. Recently its been leaking water out the bottom of the regenerator. It makes a noise when it is trying to get the steam to the iron and it works then but afterwards when the noise stops it stops steaming and I find a puddle of water underneath the regenerator. Also a little steam comes out of the water tank at the top. I understand this is happening because of scale in the base unit. Can I get something to get rid of the scale? -

I just got this euro pro shark steam mop. I dont have a manual for it so i dont know much about it. I put water in it and it heats up but when you start to use it. It makes a gurgling kind of sound and steam comes out, but not very much i dont think and on the floor you can't hardly tell where you went over the floor at cuz it's not very wet at all. So is it suppose to make a gurgling sound and should'nt the floor be alittle wetter?

I have a Polti Vaporetto Lecoaspira 710. I have filled the tank and set the machine up as usual. When I turn it on the boiler pump runs continuously for a minute or so and then the 'beep' begins and the machine shows that the boiler is empty. Obviously the water is not getting through. We don't live in a hard water area so it shouldn't be 'limed -up'. The manual says to leave it to cool down and then try again. That had no effect.

The last time I sewed with my Necchi the tension was fine. Today when I threaded my needle, the thread felt tight in the upper tension dial. I tried re-threading the machine several times, but it didn't help. Now the parts of the tension dial are all loose and wobbbly and I have no upper tension. Doesn't matter what the dial is set on. The tension dial appears to be broken, but I don't know how that could have happend since I store it in a case.

My sunbeam water cooler model #YLR2-5-67H3 has been sitting unplugged for 3 years. I moved, plugged it in and put a water bottle on top and water went all over the floor. I unplugged it, (read the instructions on the front, duh) and it still leaks on the floor. What should I do? I put it over the sink, emptied it, checked the drain plug, tried running a glass full of tap water through each tap. Only the room temperature one would work.

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 have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that. Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a

Recently our Vitapur water cooler has not been dispensing water. The problem is the water is freezing in the upper reservoir. We have tried unplugging the unit overnight & turning it back on at the minimum cold setting several times which has not worked. We have also used the Vitapur cleaning kit to clean the unit, which also did not help.

I have only had my shark steam mop for about a month and only used it twice. I tried to use it yesterday and it would not work. The green light came on and it worked for maybe ten seconds, then it completely shut off. I tried switching outlets and draining the water but nothing worked. It still doesn't work today either. What do you think is wrong? Does this product have a warranty?


Yes has warranty call Shark/europro. ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

Hi I have an Electrolux Envirosteamer and it has stopped steaming. I have made sure the water cap is on tight and also taken the head apart (where the hose finishes up and the attachments fit on) and the hose is intact there.

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.
