My Scunci steamer won't work. It heats up, builds pressure, but steam won't come out. Please help.

Take it back or do this;; To fix the problem of no steam coming out or steam coming out without pushing the button.
1. Remove the two screws from the from of the steamer then remove the end cap.
2. Removed screw from the lower area of handle.
3.Top of steamer, remove the two screws under round rubber flap around fill hole.
4. Removed back of handle, top of steamer, front of steamer where nozzles attach.
5. Remove the plastic tube where the steam comes out.
6. Now look in the hole where the steam comes out and remove the 1/4 inch nut, metal washer, and rubber washer.
7. Take a small punch and lightly tap the brass rod until it pops out the back.
8. Remove the brass rod and spring. " The spring will have white crud on it and in the hole where it came out of. Clean the hole and spring realy good. This will fix the problem of steam always coming out with out pushing the button."
9. Clean the brass rod, spring, and hole that they go into. I use a very small round wire brush. "Like the kind you might use to clean a gun."
10. Spray some WD40 in the hole and on the brass rod, then put a few drops of oil on the rod.
11. Put every thing back together and it will work like new.
12. Don't use tap water in the steamer and you will not get the build up.good luck.
If I were you, I would take it back to the store where you bought it there maybe a problem with it. Get a new one and see if it works if not I would contact the manufacture. Good luck.
Here are questions related to Scunci Steamer Doesn't Steam.
I removed the rubber flap on the Scuni Steamer and now it won't go back on securely. How did you get it back on securely?

How can I get the steam to the attachments?
There was a post in November of 2009 listing needed steps for repairing a Scunci steamer. At one point it very blithely states: 6. Now look in the hole where the steam comes out and remove the 1/4 inch nut, metal washer, and rubber washer. But I have no idea what tool is needed to take out the washers. They seem to be held fast by the post that the nut was on. I can't for the life of me figure this one out. I have tried asking both my son-in-law and his brother. Help! It was a post by kffrmw88. Anyone have any idea what is holding this thing in place? I am trying to do it myself. Thanks.
