    I get about 3 min of steam and then it just stops!  I am so mad!  I cannot get assistance, trouble shooting didn't help, and it is just a terrible product.

If the steamer starts making a "gurgling" noise, like its running out of steam, hold the hose straight up for several seconds. It says to do this in the manual and gets the steam flowing again--works great!

    Not so~ I have had the the hose straight up for a half hour. "On" light is lit--- no steam. Worked 2 separate occasions. No more.

How do you clean a Home touch PS 250B clothes steamer?

I have a hand steamer and use it every time I wear a garment that's a wrinkle-magnet. Usually it does the trick but I may have to steam it for five to ten minutes. Floor steamers that are often used in department stores have a larger capacity water tank and tend to be the most effective. But they also cost a lot more than a hand-held steamer.

Plugged in, reset button is lit, won't go off

The problem is the thermostat (NC 150 C). A replacement is available at, item R2015025 (part no. 317-1468-ND) It's a simple replacement with the bottom removed.
