Put stick on tiles over Linileum in my kitchen 3 weeks ago, they still move. Tried heat, still move. What else can I do

The surface of the linoleum may have a permanent shine product which is preventing the adhesion of the tile. Again if you have ever used a shine product over the linoleum that might be it also. I would have used a wax stripping agent over the linoleum prior to installation which might have helped.

I used to do that, but got a steam cleaner and shine went, since its down can anything beside removal be done, or will it ever dry

Don't know what to suggest! My experience with self-stick tiles has not been good. We have what we thought to be good quality self stick tiles in out extended laundry room and they were installed over wood that was primed with the special primer for them. They are bubbling up to some extent in the area where they get cold.

If EVERY tile is moving, you may have to pull them off and start over. But I've done rooms where only a few tiles came loose, and Super Glue worked wonders! That stuff is great for attaching vinyl to vinyl. (Wear gloves!)

My guess is that you will need to scuff up the linoleum floor a little bit to get the contact adhesive to grab better. I would imagine that you are going to need some new tiles at this point, too.
