Having problems with your Vacuums ?

My Tobi Platinum clothes steamer gets hot at the handle making it too hot to hold and steam with??


Answers :

We had the same problem but discovered it was because the steam hose had come adrift from it's fitting inside the handle. Dismantling the handle, re-attach the hose, re-assemble the handle and use some tie grips to hold the very poor design together and the problem was solved.

My Domotec handy steamer bought from Lakeland is not producing any steam. Have only used it a few times. makes a big noise and gets hot but no steam. I don't want to hold trigger too long in case something blows. In past steam has been quick to come out as soon as red light goes off. Any ideas?

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???

Have a Shark steamer. Tried the vinegar, tried the CLR, tried putting a piece of wire and a skewer into steam hole...no luck. The unit gets hot but no steam. Will try one more round of CLR and let it sit overnight. Other than all that I mentioned...have no idea what to do next. It's a great gadget if it worked!!

The steam in my handheld steam shot does not seem to be very hot therefore the surfaces, specially cloth ones do not get clean properly. What should I do?


If it steams it is as hot as it is going to get. Water steams at 212 degrees F at sea level so the only way to increase that heat is to pressurize that steam to a higher density than sea level which is about 32lbs per sq. in. Your steamer has no meth ... Bissell Vacuums

Hi, I have a Dirt Devil Model # M08100REDC. I desperately need to change the bag, but I don't see an obvious way to do it. I'm afraid to try pulling on the cloth tab thingy that's just below the handle, between the rubber ring that holds the bag on the vac, because it seems like stuff will fly everywhere from the force required to remove it, and I might not be able to get it back on there. Should I just pull on that cloth tab until the bag comes off? Thanks, Roberta


You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also b ... Dirt Devil Classic M08100 Bagged Handheld Vacuum

My Eureka Deluxe Enviro Steamer doesn't steam, I had no directions with it so I'm not sure how much water to put in it. It comes out the bottom before it heats up sometimes.It never seems to get hot enough. Hope you can help


You will need to pour two measures of water using the measuring cup or 12 oz of water. The reason why water comes out of the bottom is because the floor cloth is too wet or you had too much water in the tank\015\012\015\012Cl ... Eureka Deluxe Enviro Steamer Vacuum

Wondering if the head is plugged up because it makes a sound like air is escaping somewhere. I've replaced the original cloth bag with a comparable "O" paper bag from Sears. I tried to see if there was a clog in the hose by placing a broom handle in the hose to see if something would loosen. I also cleaned the filter and the air filter. If the head is plugged, how can I fix it? We can't get the vacuum apart. 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? -

The handle for my Eureka 5993 AVZ was getting very hot when used. Finally, the wires around the switch melted and now the vacuum will not work. What is wrong? Is the switch bad? The wires only melted in the immediate vicinity of the three-prong switch. Nothing else appears to be wrong; the vacuum worked fine when it was running - except for the handle getting hot. Thank you!
