Having problems with your Tristar SB Steam Buggy Vacuum ?

Screw top not coming off

\015 I have tristar steam buggy ( yellow) and used it lots over a few days. The last time i used it i could not get the screw top off it keeps slipping as if it has melted. Does anybody know how i can get the top off and if i can get another one from somewhere please ?\015

Answers :

If you look under the black plastic cap (between the bottom lip of the cap and the yellow steamer body) you should see a circular hole in the pressure valve that the plastic cap is attached to. I used a flat blade screwdriver and a hammer to tap it anti-clockwise, the whole filler cap could then be removed.
Putting sone lubricant (plumbers lube or vaseline) stopped this happening again.
By the way, you just need to tighten the filler cap finger tight.
Hope this helps.

My Fantom Thunder upright has a blockage that sounds like it is directly above the dirt bin in the "head". I cannot access it from inside the bin chamber by going up the nozzle with a claw parts retriever. (This is the older model where the cyclone nozzle doesn't come off.) The wand, hose, rear inspection port, and front brush intake are all clear. How do I get the top of the vac off above the dirt bin? I don't see any screws or slots.
