Having problems with your Vacuums ?

What kind of water is to be used in the steam station RHST 100. I mean to say that only distilled water is to be put or ordinary tap water can be used ?

Answers :

distilled or de-ionised water is recommended in all steam generator units.

tap water can contain minerals and salts that will remain in the unit and fur the inside of the steam generator.

if you live in a soft water area where there are very few impurities in the water you should be ok to use the tap water.
if you are in a hard water area, do not use tap water.

the best way to work it out is look at the inside of your kettle.
if the inside is clean with no sign of scaling, the water should not scale your steam generator.
if there is any sign of scaling, do not use tapwater for your steam generator.

distilled or de-ionised water is recommended though

I have a Sunbeam Model Number 4065-000 and there is white particles comming out of the holes in the bottom. I think it is because we used tap water and there is a lot of deposits in the water. I read on the box that it was ok to use tap water and not distilled water. Is ther any way to clean the inside out to get the deposits cleaned out without affecting the possibility of doing something to the cloths that I will iron after cleaning the iron?

If the deposits are recent and still fairly soft, running a tank of vinegar through the machine should remove the deposits (obviously not using on any clothes, hold it over a sink). if the deposits are more stubborn, you can use a cleaning agent like ... Sunbeam Vacuums

After two years, my Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop, Model S3101, no longer ejects steam. I have used tap water. I think the line is clogged with mineral deposits. The light is on when plugged in, and the unit heats up. I even put in vinegar for about an hour to break up the calcium deposits, but it did not correct the problem. How do I fix it, or, where can I take it locally to be fixed (Orange County, CA)?

I have a euor pro iron 8000 that I lucked up on at a goodwill store. What type of water does the generator use, distilled or tap?

Always use distilled, because tap water will plug the vents with hard water deposits after a period of use. You may need to run a 50/50 vinegar/water solution through first as you don't know what the previous owner was filling it with. Hope this help ... Vacuums

My sunbeam water cooler model #YLR2-5-67H3 has been sitting unplugged for 3 years. I moved, plugged it in and put a water bottle on top and water went all over the floor. I unplugged it, (read the instructions on the front, duh) and it still leaks on the floor. What should I do? I put it over the sink, emptied it, checked the drain plug, tried running a glass full of tap water through each tap. Only the room temperature one would work.

One of the rubber connecting hoses inside it has dried and aged so the pressure of the water from the bottle made it burst.\012\012\012You will need to open it, find the defective hose and replace it - a 2 hour relatively easy job. The hardest ... Sunbeam Vacuums

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it. I put water & cleaner in top tank. That's all I know to do. Do I put any water in bottom tank? I figured not, since that is probably where the water goes when sucked up by vac. Do I leave lid on bottom tank? I usually use a commercial cleaner, and this is very different. I need to know NOW, as I must return it to her today, and I'm

While using, steam stopped coming out in force at the port levels in the head. Suddenly started high pitch whining, pressed button just above connection site and end flew off with great force pouring water onto floor and carpet. Unplugged immediately for safety and unable to get it to deliver steam force again. Less than one year old and used only 8-10 times only in walk areas where there is no carpet with distilled water.

My Eureka Atlantis Express is brand new - never used. I took it out of the box, read the manual, filled the soap and clean water tanks, put them in. I lifted the machine off the counter to take into the living room but all the water came running out of the bottom all over the kitchen floor.

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution tank to test without ay success. It is like it loses it's prime whenever you try to use a solution mix. Once you set it back to water rinse only and go through the priming steps, it is OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

After cleaning it out, I let it run for a while with distilled water and the same thing was happening. So, I called HAAN and they told me to troubleshoot. This entailed taking all the water out of the system and "shaking it out." Then to put new water in and turn it on. I was to do this three times and call them if it didn't work. After the third time, I realiz
