Having problems with your Scunci 52067 Handheld Steam Vacuum ?

Heats up but won't steam

\015 We bought the scunci a couple of eyars ago. i plugged it in last night and it heated up but steam wouldn't come out of the hose. i checked the hose and it was clear. could you give me some ideas of why it wouldn;t work.\015

Answers :

I posted this in the problem section, but it's also a partial solution:
\015\012I removed all screws except the ones on the bottom (use a mini screwdriver) and took off all removable parts. I saw where the handle trigger presses a button (gold on my unit) which was stuck. I cleaned around the button, but it still stuck, so I used a bolt and hammer to hit the button. Good news--the unit now steams. Bad news--it's stuck in the open position and won't stop steaming while plugged in.
I found that my wife had used tap water which is from a well and that caused a buildup on piston which was stuck closed. I took the handle apart and sprayed some lube on it which freed it up.The piston only travels/opens up about an1/8 to a 1/16th of an inch. Hope this helps.

DZ9080 IRON IS NOT VERY OLD, BUT HAS HEATING AND STEAMING PROBLEMS. IT MAY BE ALL HEATING RELATED! MY WIFE WILL SOMETIMES JUST LEAVE IT "ON" FOR TWO HOURS AND THEN IT WILL START STEAMING AGAIN. I CANNOT MAKE SENSE OF THE HEATING INDICATORS; SOMETIMES IT WILL STAY GREEN NO MATTER WHERE YOU SET THE DIAL ---- AND IT DOES NOT FEEL HOT! WHEN I TRIED IT AGAIN TODAY, THE SHOT-OF-STEAM WORKED FOR A WHILE (AND THE SPRAY WORKED), BUT THEN ALL IT WOULD DO IS DRIP WATER AT THE TIP WHEN TIPPED DOWNWARD.


I couldn't find any warranty information on this iron, but I suspect that the heating element either has a faulty connection or part of it has cracked, making contact at time, but poor contact at other times. The unit will have to be taken apart an ... Rowenta Vacuums
