Having problems with your Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum ?

I pumped my steam mop to get started as I always do. I heard a loud pop and now it won't produce steam and leaks water on the floor.


Answers :

I was mopping with mine a couple months ago when it stopped producing steam. I pumped it several times resulting in a really loud pop (sounded like a .22 going off) followed by a large release of steam from the housing followed by water trailing on the floor. I immediately attributed it to an overpressurization and either a housing or hose failing.

Well several months later and enough nagging from my wife, I finally delved into it. I removed the housing screws from the back side (about 8 small recessed screws). After some wrestling with the housing to free it, I was able to examine the inside. I quickly found the issue. The hose that comes off of the top of the steam chamber and goes to the mop head had indeed failed (presumably from a blockage of sediment / calcium). The hose ruptured right at the top where it connects to the steam chamber where I found about a 1/4" hole.

I was able to remove the hose. I found a long spring inside the hose. (I'm guessing it is to try to prevent blockages.) I blew threw the hose and a good size cloud of a white powdery substance came out. I ran the spring back and forth inside the hose to ensure there were no other obstructions. Fortunately the failure occured close enough to the end of the hose that I was able to trim off the rupture and resecure it with the spring clamp.

I put everything back together and now it works perfectly again. Distilled water from now on (we're on a community well system) and an occasional flush with vinegar should prevent it from happening again.

My Delonghi DSS50 steam floor cleaner water reservoir has a broken valve on the bottom where it fits into the steam unit. It leaks water rather than producing steam.

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? -

While using, steam stopped coming out in force at the port levels in the head. Suddenly started high pitch whining, pressed button just above connection site and end flew off with great force pouring water onto floor and carpet. Unplugged immediately for safety and unable to get it to deliver steam force again. Less than one year old and used only 8-10 times only in walk areas where there is no carpet with distilled water. Please, advise, cannot find booklet. Thanks So Much, Beverly Crumme

What am I doing wrong??

My Reliable T730A Canister Steam Vacuum is not working. The red (empty) light stays on even though its full and it doesn't produce any steam. I doubt that the water is getting down into the heating chamber. How easy is it to take apart and clean or can I just blow compressed air through it? Any help most appreciated. Steve [email protected]


You can probably just blow it out with the air compressor. If you have a air pressure regulator on the air compressor then I would turn it down to about 30-40 psi. Then try to blow out the line. ... Reliable T730A Canister Steam Vacuum
