The TS-10 Hand Held Clothes Steamer is a powerful 600 watts in a small machine, which means that the boiler isn’t too far away from the steam nozzle.  When too much water is added to the water tank, the boiling water will start to “spit” out of the steam nozzle. To prevent this from happening, please be sure to only fill the water tank to the “MAX” line as indicated on the water tank of your Hand Held Steamer.
