Answers :

I have an H3000 that has an upper and lower tank. The upper tank comes off and has a screw-in filler cap for measuring the cleaner. Just fill the cap with a recommended cleaner, fill the upper tank to the line with water, then add the cleaner as you screw on the cap. (You can put the cleaner in first, but it will make lots of bubbles when you top off with water.) Now, the bottom tank is where the dirty water will end up. I use my machine only for wet cleaning so I have removed the little paper filter. (My blue plastic rectangle just sits on top loosely.) When the bottom tank gets full enough, take it off the machine, flip up the latch and pull off the top. It is kind of hard to remove, so hold on tightly and pull the lid up and off. Just dump the dirty stuff in the toilet and flush! Put it all back together, and you're done. :)

Hi I own a Bissell Proheat Powersteamer pro-tech with a turbobrush. I have been using "bissell multi-allergen removal formula for carpets and upholstery." I ran out of that last night. Today I went to walmart looking for more. Everything I found said "2x Ultra Concentrated Bissell multi-allergen." I'm confused on where to add the cleaner. I have a water tank and a separate soap tank. The instructions on this new cleaner bottle say to add 4 capfuls for the formula tank and dilute with hot tap wat

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

Steam buggy water reservoir cap has apparently been cross threaded, and cannot be removed by twisting or other "encouragement." If I cut it off, where can I get a replacement? Can the machine be used as is by taking the insert out of the cap and filling the reservoir through the opening? Is there a current manufacturer of this product?


You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You w ... Tristar SB Steam Buggy Vacuum

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

I recently took out a stand mixer that is probably over 50 years old. It belonged to my mother and I wanted to use it. It probably hasn't been used in at least 10 years. With some effort, I removed one of the beaters but cannot remove the other one nor can I even budge it. I have used WD-40 but it's not helping. It's a Westinghouse product. Any ideas? Thanks.


If you used WD40, you should have the unit inverted so the WD40 runs down into the beater socket.Use a small piece of wood and place it against the bottom of the beater and tap lightly with a hammer while pressing the beater release button/lever, jus ... Vacuums
