Having problems with your iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum ?

Dirty tank has no water after the whole cycle.

\015 I think there is something wrong with the "sucking back" feature of my scoobe cuz there is no water in the dirty tank at the end of the cycle. The floor also has streaks. Can anyone help me? I've just changed a new battery too.\015

Answers :

Turn the tank over. It's transparent on the underside, and there are two oval-shaped openings that stick out more than an inch, located toward the middle. On the far right and far left sides, next to each oval opening, there is another opening. (These are oddly shaped-- one round, one large and curved like Roomba's filter.) Rinse all four of these openings really thoroughly with warm water. The water should go in one opening and come out one of the others. (This should happen when you put water in every one of the four ports.) Do not be surprised if you get clots of dirt out of there. This is generally what keeps Scooba from being able to pick up water. Then, if this works for you, make the tank rinse part of your regular cleaning routine and it shouldn't happen again.

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full.

Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor. The dirty tank fills up, so the suction works, but, I don't know what is going on?

Dear Sir: I just purchased a Bissell Rug Shampooer at a garage sale. The only thing I find for a model is on the back and it says Model 1695 there. Nothing on front. It is Navy blue and has a grey tank on it with a smaller one inserted at bottom of the large tank. It has two switches on the back of it and the trigger switch at the handle. The cleaner works, BUT, it does not extract any water back into the tank that is to pick up the dirty water. Could you suggest what I may look at t

The water tank on my bissell proheat 2x is not keeping the clean and dirty water separate. I;ve checked the container and there doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it.
