Having problems with your Euro-Pro Vacuums ?

I have purchased 2 euro-pro 53101 steam machines and after only a few uses they stopped steaming. I am the only person using the machines. what is the problem?


Answers :

It is possible you have a calcium build up problem if you have hard water or the heating elements have gone bad. Try running CLR cleaner through them and see if that clears the problem. In most cases you will see calcium build up on or around any area where the steam came out when you used it.
Hi there,\012

Well first of all you can try cleaning your machine -
Fill the water level in your Euro-Pro to its maximum level and set it on any steam setting. Place it upright on your board or another safe place isolated from other things.

Set the machine to its hottest setting and wait for it to heat up. The temperature light will stop flashing when it is finished, usually about five minutes.

Change the steam setting to point to "self clean" and hold the euro over a sink in the horizontal position. Steam and boiling water will begin to come out of the Euro-Pro holes on the sole plate.

Thanks

I bought a used Hoover Reind and there are two issues:1) There is no suction. The debris flies out of the back of the machine and 2) The machine will not shut off. You have to unplug it in order to get it to stop working. Any suggestions on either problem?

I have the Janome 6600 P. Beginning a seam the thread knotted and the machine made noise and needle would not move either up or down. I manually moved the needle using the handwheel and cut away the knotted thread. I began sewing again but instead of starting at the edge began about a half inch down, forward stitched, reversed to lock threads and problem repeated and received the message to "Stop for safety purposes". Did that. Referred to the manual, tried manual recommendation. Did not work. I

Hi, I have a Sebo X4 which is almost 3 years old. I haven't had any problems with it until the last couple of days when I notice a slight screeching noise when in upright position, coming from the roller mechanism area. If I slightly push the sebo forwards it gets worse, if I tip it back it stops. If I take the roller out and switch on, there is no noise. I have always been careful not to tip the machine forwards when using the hose, but I recently lent it to a friend whose hoover had broken do

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel that has been used twice both times at Christmas to pick up pine needles. It really has never been used because my cleaning ladies come every week and use their own machine. The problem I have is that the machine just doesn't pick up anything. Can you help. It's not overuse that is the problem!

I have the same problem as discussed above. My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stops working while using it. The bottom feels hot when this happens. When it first occurred, I emptied the canister and even tried a different plug. It did not turn back on for over an hour. When it did turn back on, it would die again after about 3-5 minutes of use. I don't know what else to try. I have washed the secondary filters, let them air dry and replaced them and this did not help the problem. My friend,

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu

Won't start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn't change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was't on & it didn't stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn't the problem.

Hello, I have an Electrolux vacuum. In desperation, I vacuumed up some water and my machine stopped. I am hesitant to take the machine to a repair place for fear that if it is a simple repair they will not be honest. Can anyone give me advice on whether this is a problem that requires a new motor or major repair? Thank you!
