Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy1 from Incredible ! I recently purchased a Power Steamer 705. I had always heard the horror stories about removing wall paper so I put it off until my wife laid down the law!! Anyway, I have a background in product development and manufacturing so I'm always looking at a product from a critical eye, from design, price, is it user friendly and of course does it work. So I brought my purchase home from our local Lowe's and went to work. Easy set up-good, written directions- good, watched a you-tube video- very helpful. Machine looked good and felt durable. Now came the moment of truth, will it work! Plugged it in and it was ready to steam within 15 minutes, the attachments were perfect and the wall paper nearly fell off the wall. Total time to do my entire kitchen was around 10 hours and that is for a rookie. I cannot find one negative observation about this fine product. Rarely does a product exceed expectations, but this one has. Very Impressed.... It's a Masterpiece!! Worth twice the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kit2 from Ligtweight, easy to use. Used to remove a latex painted stipple ceiling! Not wallpaper! The latex paint quickly softened and peeled off easily. The stipple compound softened and was incredibly easy to remove with a putty knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RickT from Great product and time saver I needed to remove a border before painting a room. I tried the chemicals (even going to full strength) and all the scoring tools. I was removing about a foot/hour. With some ~ 60-70 feet to remove, I contemplated hiring a pro just to get through the misery. The border must have been of the highest quality as it was nearly impossible to saturate with chemicals. Not to mention the "superglue" adhesive. Wanting to give this one last try, I went to the store and bought a 705 unit. The price was reasonable and any time savings would be worth the price of admission. The removal rate was 10-times faster with less damage to the wall. It takes a little practice, but once you get a feel for the amount of time to place the steam tray on the wall, you can really remove lots of paper quickly. Do yourself a favor and get a bucket to hold the steam tray somewhere near you while working. This also keeps water off of everything and minimizes the burn potential. Supplying steam trays in two sizes is outstanding. The smaller steam tray is great for removing residual glue and working near edges and ceilings. In summary, if you're going to suffer the anguish of removing wallpaper, then buy the 705. The 705 falls under the category of "money well spent."

Rated 4 out of 5 by Remover501 from It was good while it lasted Bought 705 steamer, steamed 2 tanks of water and went for third tank. In the tank there was still water left, but when i went to fill it I tilted unit 90 degrees to get my water from kitchen sink in the unit and when Cold water hit the heating element I guess it bursted some of its plating and element is no longer working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomOhio from And now, on to other applications Incredible product. I took the paper off my bathroom walls in a short afternoon. I had tried chemical products and peeling it... but the steam took it right off with no damage to the drywall. Now I want to use the steamer for my primary reason for buying it... my wood-bending steam box. Instead of just sticking the hose in a hole and trying to tape the heck out it (which many do), I want to duplicate the male thread from the steam panel on a connection that will allow me to simply screw the hose onto the box. But, I can't find any specs on the thread. How about building one for us woodworkers, so that the unit has a whole new application by design? In the meantime, if I could get the thread specs I'd have on of our techs make one for me. THANKS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Handyman247 from Awesome steamer This steamer works great. I bought mine at a yard sale for five dollars. They even left scrapers in the box. I have used it several times for wallpaper removal and it works great. I've even used it to clean cabinets and other surfaces. When it quits I will definitely buy another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rich72 from Great when it worked... It worked great for two weeks and then all of a sudden would not heat up at all. I made sure the cord was connected to the main unit and then re-plugged it in multiple times just in case the automatic shut-off was stuck. (The last time I used it, I turned it off with plenty of water left in the tank.) It has only shut off automatically twice before the failure. According to the Wagner rep I spoke to on the phone, using the automatic shut-off is bad for the unit. Will be taking it back and hopefully getting a new one that will last longer.

The steamer stopped in the middle of wallpaper removal. It had been working excellently and then stopped. It was half full of water. I have let it cool, emptied and refilled the steamer. It does not heat. What can be done?
Sorry about your trouble with the 705 Power Steamer. If it is no longer heating up there may mineral build up on the heating coils. Our recommendation to clean that up is to mix 8 Oz water and 8 Oz vinegar into the steamer and let it sit unplugged for at least 30 minutes. Then wash it out and plug it in to see if it starts heating again. If that doesn't solve your problem please call our technical support staff at 1(800)328-8251 and they can determine if its in under the 1 year warranty that comes with the purchase of the unit.

Is it a 3-prong plug?
I have an old house with old 2-prong outlets in the rooms that need the wallpaper steamed off. If this is a 3-prong unit, can it be used with an extension cord?
You can certainly use an extension cord with the 705 Power Steamer. Make sure that if it is over 100 ft. in length that it is a minimum of a 14 gauge wire.
