Having problems with your Kenmore 25512/ 25513 Progressive Canister Vacuum ?

Auto-matic suction shut-off didn't resume once tank was emptied

\015 Hello. I have a Kenmore Carpet Cleaner, Model 473.85930. \015\012\015\012This is the first time I've used it, and once the recovery tank was full, I emptied it, latched it back on properly, and tried to continue with cleaning, but the water no longer is being vacuumed up. The manual states that once the recovery tank is full, the automatic shut-off valve is activated -- but even though I've emptied the tank, it still seems to be activated. I don't see any sort of reset switch, and now I'm stuck with really wet carpets and no way to suction the water. Please help... and THANKS!\015

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 purchased a brand new Eureka Pet vacuum, sorry don't know exact name but it the one that has the self cleaning duster on it. Last night I used the vacuum on my carpet, it was working fine until I accidently sucked up the corner of a scarf that was hanging off a couch. I shut the vacuum off, pulled out the scarf and and resumed vacuuming. Much to my dismay the suction on the vacuum had ceased. Can you tell me if there is a reset button on the vacuum? The vacuum does not appear to be damage

Lost Suction This is my second hoover steamvac and i am having the same problem with my new one as i did with the old one that i tossed out. I have used it about 12 times and it worked great the first 6 times... Now i'll empty a full tank of water and only half will get sucked back up. I have tried taking it apart and cleaning and also the rubber seal had some gaps so i sealed those thinking that it was leaking air from there...can anyone help?

After running for 15 minutes, the windtunnel vacuum cleaner shuts off. It will not restart until it has been off for 30 minutes. Could it be overheating for some reason. All of the filters are clean; the dust tank is empty; the belts have no cracks.


It's not necessarily overheating, but the thermal-fuse is definitely tripping and it takes 30 minutes to reset. There are several causes of this (in most common order):\015\012\015\0121. A blockage in the suction system or a full dust tan ... Hoover U6630-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum

I have an eye vac professional that will not stay on to **** up the dirt. There is power to the outlet and the blue on/off light does stay on, but in Auto mode if I stick my hand near the dirt sensor it just pulses on and off. I can feel the suction, but it won't stay on. I've unplugged it, removed the dirt bin and filters and nothing works. Help!!!! This is brand new and I've only emptied the collection bin once and it hasn't worked since.

My Steam Vac F59149 will not vacuum up the cleaning solution. I have checked the usual culprits. The dirty water tank is empty, the yellow float is not up too high. This is a relatively new appliance, so the way for the water is not blocked, there is just no suction. The warm air is blowing, the brushes are spinning. What next?

Suction Problem I was vacuuming and stopped to empty the cannister. When I started vacuuming again - the suction wasn't working properly. The vacuum was just pushing stuff around the floor.
