Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Vax carpet washer deluxe leaks from bottom of water tank, somewhere between coming out of the tank and going into the jet to squirt on the floor. pissing me off - any help would be great!

Answers :

Just stripped VAX rapid carpet cleaner model v-025 down found out the internal plastic water valve keeps sticking in open position causing the water to free flow on the carpet when it should be closed pop the water flow regulator part out of housing and spray wd40 on the plunger side and pump with finger( repeat till it does not stick ) you can do a water test by putting some water in the bottle housing cap on the body of the machine then press the plunger on the regulator the water will flow through the pipe then it will shut off when released, top the housing cap back up with water the regulator should now be in the closed position and holding the water until plunger is pressed back in a gain for the water to flow down the pipe again if this is the case rebuild the machine mine now works perfect.hope this sorts your problem out
This is a common problem known by repairers. What happens is residue gets stuck in the seals. The next time you use the machine and press the trigger the seals stay open and water leaks continually. It was suggested that maybe after you finish using the machine you do a whole tank of plain water to rinse it out but I haven't had any luck with that. I am stuck with a machine that doesn't work.

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!

Hoover F7431900 I am using this for the first time in a little while and both tanks, the water tank and the cleaning tank are both leaking. Any help in this matter would be appreciated!

The tank you are talking about has the soap container attched to the back of the water tank, then probably you need to replace the tank. If this has different tanks, then you may have to replave the seals that the tank sits on. ... Hoover V1 SteamVac SpinScrub Vacuum

Kirby Vacuum Hi Bruce, In my opinion, yes the Kirby would be worth it, as long as you are not replacing the motor. The switch would be the most expensive part besides the motor that would need to be replaced. The switch costs USD 49.99, the cord is roughly $39.99, and the carbon brushes are $29.99. I can easily walk you through any of these repairs should you need help. Kirby's are great vacuum cleaners, that usually last 30+ years. Brand new these machines sell in the US for $1600 or more,

I just bought a foldaway hoover with wide path. I plugged it in and started to vacuum and dust flew everywhere. Walmart would not give me my money back so they gave me another hoover foldaway with the wide path. I thought this one might work. This one does the same thing. It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.

Your Vac probably does not have a filter installed inside the unit, that is why fine dust escapes through the vents. Remove the dirt canister/cup from the unit and you will see a filter frame behind. Possibly the filter itself is missing or wrongly i ... Hoover U5172900 Fold Away Widepath Bagless Upright Vacuum
