Shark canister steamer

moosemomAugust 13, 2011

Any owner of a shark canister steamer ever had an issue with it not heating the water? My canister is 5 years old, hardly used until just this month I began to use it weekly--wow week 4 it decides not to work any more! i am upset I spent alot of money on this and i get more use out of my 40 dollar vacuum! Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

This is a possible solution! On www.fixya.com they said to do this if anyone else has had this problem---it is worth checking out to fix an expensive cleaning machine!

There's a thermal fuse inside. If it gets too hot, the fuse will blow and the thing won't turn on.
It has a 216 C temp limit. You can find thermal fuses at radio shack for less than 5$. If you're adventurous enough, you can find the fuse in line of a white wire under a fiberglass outer and heat shrink inner shielding screwed against the bottom of the tank.
