It might be full of scale and the nozzle may be clogged. They sell a de-scaler. You may also have a blown fuse. You would have to disassemble it to get to the fuse.

One person wrote it could be a fuse issue. You will need to take take the bottom off, find white wire from the element, bridge the offending fuse located under the special insulation, with a piece of wire - if you can't replace it, re-assemble, and it should work - Per Harold.

There is more than one model of the Scunci Steamer so you'll have to look for the suggestion that fits your model.

It may need to decalcify:
Fill the water tank with 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 distilled water. Run the steamer until half the mixture has steamed. Unplug and allow it to rest for 30 minutes. Rinse and repeat... as many times as necessary until steam returns to normal (could be 2-3 times).

You can also use a commercial product:
