Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
This is James, I'm an appliance repair technician with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today

Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What brand is your steamer, I assume its a Bosch or Siemens based on you suggesting it has a two year warranty?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
No it is beldray 12 in 1
Expert:  JamesI replied 11 days ago.

The appliance is showing it has one year (see here), can you advise if you have confirmation they have extended your warranty to 2 years, as in some instances they do this on registering the appliance etc, but not normally with budget appliances such as this model.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Expert:  JamesI replied 11 days ago.

Understood then you have a one year warranty which has now expired, so repairs would be chargeable.

Parts for your model of steamer can be sourced here, most likley the boiler has failed which is not deemed a consumer replaceable part which would mean the appliance would need to be sent in for a service centre repair

Taking into account the fault occurred during lock down you could contact Beldray to see if they will honour the repair, though may challenge whey you didn't log the fault during lock down.

You can contact the service\warrant team by calling 0161(###) ###-####/p>
