When I was putting my new rug shampooer together and the directions said to press the trigger and the clean surge button until I heard a snap, I did just that many times and never did hear a snap so I thought it had likely happened and I didn't hear it so I proceeded to fill the solution tank and get busy but no solution came out so I used the clean surge button instead and got the job done (I think). Can I continue to use it that way or is there a way I can get it to snap and use it the way it

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
I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning..... When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI - I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn't wet. Any tips? The manual doesn't help.

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen

Vinegar Hello! I really love my new Shark Steam Mop. It is useful for cleaning my Pergo floors without streaking. Can I add some white vinegar to the water or will that damage the mechanism or clog something? I am using distilled water, by the way. Thanks- Denise

I bought a rubbermaid reveal mopping system.and I dropped the mop while using and the bottle fell out, the cleaning solution gurgled all over the floor, and now the cap is stuck inside the mop. Can anybody help me think of a way to get it out without damaging the unit?
Try using a pair of needle nosed pliers, in reverse. Put the tips into the cap and SPREAD the handles. The jaws MIGHT provide enough grab to back the cap out. Otherwise, it will be a try this and try that job. No two are ever alike. ... Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop Kit, FG1M1600GRYRD

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.

Asking again. Better wording? My lightweight Bissell carpet shampooer is continually spraying cleaning solution. The sucking action works well but can't keep up. This unit does NOT HAVE A HEATER. This is a simple unit. Is there a cable going down the handle from the trigger? ( it feels like that's the way it works. Could the drain be plugged. Also it will only use 1/2 a tank of solution at a time. Then must be filled again
