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.


I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece. There are two screws that will need to be removed in order to get access to the connector. Once the connector is removed from the rec ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

Vinegar Hello! I really love my new Shark Steam Mop. It is useful for cleaning my Pergo floors without streaking. Can I add some white vinegar to the water or will that damage the mechanism or clog something? I am using distilled water, by the way. Thanks- Denise

My steam mop S3501 seems to be clogged because of mineral build up. When it heats up it blows the mop head off from the pressure. I had not been using distilled water. Is there any way to clean it so the steam can get through again?

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!

My kenwood steam mop makes for very wet mopping is this supposed to be? My floors are a lot wetter than when I use a traditional mop. When I fill the tank and turn it on the water seems to just leak from the bottom so I have only been half filling it and then the water light comes on within 2 mins of when steam starts to appear. What am I doing wrong??

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?

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

I have a Bissell Steam Cleaner that is not sucking up the water when cleaning. I used a full container of water and when it was empty I emptied out the water, only to find very little dirty water in it. I noticed the window, as i used it, seemed like it wasnt sucking up the water. I took the plastic cover off to clean it (it didnt look very dirty in the first place), an i noticed that the grey plastic flap was on but not moving up or down. I thought there may be dirt in it that prevented it from

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning..... When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up.

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

Hello, I got a used Kirby Sentria. When I run the vaccum and push and pull on the handle, I can hearing a friction type noise. I got up close to the vaccum and it is not the wheels or roller. It is coming from the base of the handle. It's like it is pushing on something on the vaccum body and is creating the noise. Maybe transmission? Is this normal, or is it something I should be concerned about? Thanks for your help!
