Hi, the problems with "NO STEAM" is more than likely that water had been\015\012left in the tank for a long period of time. PREVENT this by emptying\015\012the tank after use.

Now, if it will not PRODUCE steam, do this:\015\012Purchase a bottle of CLR at you local hardware store or WalMart. Empty\015\012your Shark of any water in the tank. (Remove cap, remove handles (2),\015\012and turn it upside down over the sink or outside. Remove the pad too,\015\012if still on.

Pour CLR into the tank FULL STRENGTH until 1/4\015\012full. Set the Shark in the bathtub and pump the handle (there is a stub\015\012of a handle still attached) 4-5 times. Now leave it sitting in the tub\015\012for 2-4 hours. Remove from tub or plug it in while in the tub. It\015\012SHOULD start steaming in about 20-30 seconds! Immediately pull the plug\015\012- DO NOT INHALE THE VAPORS OF THE CLR!!!!! Empty the remaining CLR out\015\012of the tank, fill with clean water...install cap, shake and empty the\015\012water again. Fill and use!

Mine steamed better after I did this better than it did when I used it the first time!

IF,\015\012it did NOT start steaming after 4 hours, remove the CLR from the tank,\015\012fill the tank with water, shake and empty. Repeat the CLR process. If\015\012this doesn't work.......

Take care

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!!!

When pluged, in the unit turns on ( green light illuminates ) and feels warm. Yes, I filled the water container. The unit does not generate any steam. For some reason, I do not have an "operation manual" --- but it doesn't seem to be all that complicated! Have left it plugged in for 25 minutes. A small amount of water came out while just sitting. Then another small amount of water comes out when I push the handle in. I will assume that steam should come out when I push the handle in. Well, it do

Hi, I've a Tefal Steam Generator Express Turbo 2910. It won't "steam". The solenoid works when the button is pressed. The pump works. I've cleaned the tank (with white vinegar as recommended on this site!) thoroughly. The water from the steam tank is only "hot" (not scalding as I'd expect it to be). When first switched on and hot enough there is the TINIEST whiff of steam when the button is pressed then nothing more. Do you think this could be the Thermostat Part CS00094126, or can you

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water
