You will have to check the power steamer switch where the cord connects to it can you do that or is that the one you checked?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I had power as far as I could check. Don't know how to get to where the power is connected. I think it is in the switch but do not know how to get to it

OK you have to take the base apart to get to it you need to remove the screws that hold the base together to separate it can you do that?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The base is pretty well contained and no screws. I'm afraid if I start digging I will cause damage. Was hoping to get an answer that would keep me from tearring into it. Thanks
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 3 months ago.

Yes I am sorry there is no way to do that you should have a local shop that you could take it into to get that fixed pretty cheap though. Sorry I wish there were an easier way to do this.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me!.....tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service.
