Having problems with your Euro-Pro Shark SC-505 Handheld Steam Vacuum ?

Can't get the top unscrewed

\015 The steamer has been stored in attack for summer. The top will not unsrew. Have tried using pliers and it is stuck. Any tips?\015

Answers :

My sister gave me hers that was stored in a humid storage unit--it still had water in it. What I did was hold down the pressure release trigger (with my leg against table top) then turned the top off with both hands, it wouldn't budge till I held the trigger(black). hope this helps, I am also looking for a manual for this little power house. so far I like it.
\015\012good luck.
I had same problem, the brass threaded cap corrodes in the threads on the steamer making it impossible to unscrew. Mine had no water in it at the time, so I plugged it in until it heated up and was able to unscrew it with large channel locks. Be careful not to break the plastic cap. Do not leave plugged in for long, takes only a minute to heat it up to try unscrewing

It only makes a grinding noise when you pull handle back and engade to vacuum flor and stops when you put it upright.

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? -

Miele Cat & Dog vacuum gets VERY hot and is VERY loud. Hose has no restrictions and I have changed the dust compartment (motor) filter and the exhaust filter. It still gets hot when I run it with the top open and all filters removed, so I'm guessing the problem is with the motor. Should I be going into the motor compartment? If so, what am I looking for?


Hi\015\012\015\012The fact that it gets very hot could be due to a number of issues.,but the fact that it started making a very loud noise at the same time suggests that there might be more problems maybe brushes etc.\015\012\ ... Miele S514 Solaris Bagged Canister Vacuum
