Jiffy Steamer J-2 Troubleshooting Guide
The following are common problems, causes and solutions for the Jiffy Steamer J-2. We strongly recommend customers contact us to book a service to ensure the most professional repair service possible. If your issue is not listed, contact us with your questions and we will respond as soon as possible.
Steamer works poorly or cycles ON and OFF while steaming.
The unit may need a thorough cleaning, or there could be problems with the thermostat. Manual cleaning is the best solution at this point. The heating element must be disassembled and cleaned out manually.
The green indicator light does not illuminate when turned to ON position.
The fuse wire, cord-set or switch could be bad. Wires may be disconnected, or the unit may not be plugged in. In addition, the outlet may be defective or inoperable. Check the unit’s current flow and replace the defective part. Try to plug the unit into another outlet.
The steamer spits water from the steam head.
The steam head may be cracked or damaged or the rod-set may not be fully assembled (there are three sections for most models). Replace the steam head once signs of excess wear are apparent. Make sure the hose is straight and that it has no kinks, which may trap condensation in the hose.
Unit does not produce steam when green indicator light is on.
Check the water level to make sure the unit is not out of water. The heating element may be bad, or the wire may be disconnected. Turn off the unit, allow it to cool down and refill water container. Check unit with a voltage meter (if qualified).
Cleaning Instructions for Jiffy Steamer J-2
The following cleaning procedure is recommended as a regular maintenance measure to help your steamer maintain its maximum steaming performance. This maintenance should be performed on a basis of every 3-6 months, depending on your usage. In most cases, properly cleaning a severely-clogged steamer requires disassembly. Contact us for a service to best perform this disassembly.
- Unplug your steamer from the wall outlet. Remove hose attachment at the brass coupling using a wrench and remove water bottle from unit. Pour out any remaining water from your unit.
- If the hose attachment is blocked by sediment build-up, use a water hose to clean inside the hose. This should loosen and remove any build-up that may have occurred within the hose itself.
- A solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% distilled water may be used as a cleaning solution. Pour the cleaning solution into the water cup of your steamer. This is the location on the steamer base where you normally place the water bottle. Allow the cleaning solution to remain in the unit for 2-3 hours. DO NOT STEAM THE SOLUTION IN THE UNIT AS DAMAGE MAY OCCUR.
- Pour the cleaning solution out of the steamer. Do this by tilting the steamer back and forth and pouring the solution out of the water cup area.
- Rinse the unit thoroughly by flushing with fresh water 2-3 times.
- If discoloured water or residue continues to come from the unit, the above procedure may need to be repeated.
- We recommend cleaning the steamer once every 4-6 months, depending on the amount of sediment in your water source.
