    I was mopping my kitchen and out of no where it just stopped producing steam, well boy was I wrong, the sucker exploded from backed-up steam in whatever little thing creates the steam![​IMG] It was really scary and burned my fingers, thank goodness my kids weren't in the room or they could have been burned!!! Th best part it's only a little over a year old [​IMG]

    See? Another example of why housework is very very bad.

    Oh my gosh! I am glad no one got seriously injured. You should call the company and let them know. Even, if they don't do anything, it is good for htem to have it on record in case it has happened (or may happen in the future) to other people. How scary!
