    Steam cleaner back up and running

    Reliable service with genuine part, when the old cap seized up, my steam cleaner was useless - so good value for money. The espares video was really useful too. I will definitely be using espares again.

    If left fitted tightly the knob can corrode and seize. To remove it try using water pump pliers or a strap wrench.

I have cracked open my cap (as in the clear video), it still will not budge. I have now removed the plastic to expose the copper nut of the cap and still it will not budge - any helpful pointers...?

    We believe if you have tried to remove with a flat blade screwdriver then try using some pipe grips as this should be able to remove the cap.

    It is likely a new cap will resolve the problem.

    This is for an SC1020 cleaner. If steam is escaping it is likely the seal has failed.
