Hand held steamer doesn't release steam!

Customer Question

Hand held steamer doesn't release steam!

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries -
Try this -
1) Removed screws from: a) Lower area of handle (1 screw), b) Top of steamer, under round rubber flap around fill hole (2 screws), c) Front of steamer where nozzles attach (2 screws)
2) Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach
3) Once all parts are removed, you will see a brass button that is pushed by the trigger
4) Using a needle-nose pliers, grasp and rotate the button several times in both directions (you may hear it rubbing against the interior spring). Do this until it turns fairly easily with the pliers.
5) Once this is done, you will find that the brass button can be very slightly depressed with a bit of force. You may also need/want to unfold a large paper clip to push into the nozzle hole to help unsticking the brass button. When the brass button moves in and out (it doesnt move much), the steam release mechanism is unstuck!
6) Reassemble all parts (everything snaps back neatly into place).
Test and confirm correct operation.
