I have a Model F7431-900 and is a SteamVac V2. When I press the trigger for water or cleaning solution, the water just runs right through it even after releasing the trigger. What kind of problem do I have? Is it most likely a valve problem? I'm handy at fixing things and want to avoid the large repair bill if I take it in.

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. I can see where the little white plastic piece sticks up into the water release valve and lets the water out. How do you stop this? Can it be fixed?
