Thanks Andy B. I was just about to give up and tried this. It worked!

I had the same issue. To be honest, I had not used the steam cleaner for 3 months and had left the cap in place. I followed the instructions in the advice to depressurise the device. I even turned it on again and made sure any residual water was turned to steam and exhausted. In that condition the cap turned easily as the safety worked, but of course the cap did not open. once cold again the cap was jammed as before. Conclusion, the cap is corroded/limescaled in place. The cap is difficult to grip due to the plastic moulding around it, so I used a set of mole-grips to get greater leverage and gentle eased the cap anticlockwise. This worked with minimal effort so did not damage the cap or thread.

Make sure the machine is completely cold - pull the steam trigger to see, then press the cap down hard as you turn it.
