How Can I Repair a Clothes Steamer That Doesn't Steam?

By Cornelia 45 72

My clothes steamer suddenly stopped steaming. It heats up, sometimes, but never quite makes it to steam when it does heat up. Is there a way to repair/clean it that will make it work right again?

Might have a little corrosion, or heating element could be going, in which case there's nothing to be done. But if you are a bit handy, get a small plate or container and start taking it apart,putting screws on plate, and check to see if all wires are connected tightly, use plain steel wool or an emery board to restore polish to anything which looks a little corroded, and lastly, check the cord. Sometimes things just need a new cord, but it has to be the proper heaviness. Is there

an appliance repair place near you? You can have it repaired or buy parts. Is there an 800 number on the appliance? They can point you in right direction sometimes.
