Having problems with your Polti Vaporetto 2400 Canister Steam Vacuum ?

Polti Vaporetto I have a problem with my steam cleaner. Cannot get steam to come out, and the big valve at the top just keeps turning in both directions. So can't empty it. I have'nt got an instruction manual either as it was given to me. Any suggestions!!! Terena

Dear Terena
\015\012Had the same problem with a polti vaporetto 1500 ( vtt 1500 ) after butchering the big valve on the top I realised that the problem was that there was a blockage in the black pipe that comes from the machine to the trigger, the pipe that carries the steam in other words, so I got a piece of wire ( brake cable form a bike shop ) long enough to go at least half way down the pipe and then I pushed the wire down the hole at the trigger end and then from the other end that joins to the polti and hey presto the blockage was gone and the machine works fine again. If you use the machine again after you have cleared the blockage from the pipe you should be able to remove the valve from the top remeber that the water is now steam so it is very hot and will burn you so be carefull when opening the valve when hot I think that you will have to open it when it is warm not hot as what has happened is that scale has got in the threads of the valve and sealed it, so if you get it undone ( try pushing it down hard as you turn it Whilst it is warm only not hot ) then get some kettle descaler and put some in a bowl of hot water and put the valve threaded end in the descaler for 10 minutes to get rid of the scale and in the mean time put some descaler around the threads on the polti where the valve goes this will allow the valve to screw back on easily and you will be back to normal use again remember to keep the valve screw threads free of scale in the future I have only just reallised this so dont feel alone.

I just bought a used euro pro steam shark model ep903, has all parts but when I turned it on to use it water and steam poured out of the handle grip area. Am I not doing something right? The manual says to attach the brush directly to the hand grip but I can't use it without getting burned. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I just got this euro pro shark steam mop. I dont have a manual for it so i dont know much about it. I put water in it and it heats up but when you start to use it. It makes a gurgling kind of sound and steam comes out, but not very much i dont think and on the floor you can't hardly tell where you went over the floor at cuz it's not very wet at all. So is it suppose to make a gurgling sound and should'nt the floor be alittle wetter?

My brand-new Hoover Windtunnel T-Series Pet Rewind Bagless vac simply shut off while I was using it and now I can't get it to turn back on. I've emptied the dirt collection bin and let the unit sit unplugged for 30 minutes to reset the Thermal Protector as per the manual. I've even tried a few different outlets just in case a fuse got tripped, but the vac still won't turn on. What happened? Do I need to return this vac to the store? I just bought it 5 hours ago.

Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?

After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums

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.

I have a Kenmore 385.19110 model machine, and the straight and zig zag stitches work just fine, but when I follow the directions in the manual to do a satin stitch (which is use the lowest stitch length) it creates a line that isn't perfect, or uniform, and after an inch or two stops catching the bobbin underneath.

The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come on unless the water is siphoned manually through the tube. Then the pump come on and empties the bucket. I have reattached the tube and still had to manually siphon the water through the tube. Any suggestions?

Any automatic pumps operate off a swith that is turned on when the water rises. They normally have some type of ball lift, that will raise the switch when water is high and then drops with the water and shuts the pumps off. It sounds like yours is ... Vacuums
