I have an older model F6056-900 Hoover steamvac Spin Scrub Cleaner. My first problem was that I loaned it out to a friend. Anyway she ran over the hose (used for attachments) with her car. I tried using the cleaner for carpet cleaning this morning but when I tried to put the solution tank into place...its loose...won't snap back in like it used to. When I can get it somewhat in place the solution just complete drains out through the bottom fo the tank. The leak is where the small hole on the bot

I have a Bissell ProHeat 2x, and I did something dum. I had some powdered cleaner that said it works with carpet cleaners-well I mixed it in-and the next time I tried to use it, nothing came out. So, I took it part to check what was wrong-and found out that the powdered cleaner solidified in places. I cleared the nozzels, nothing. I think the solenoid, between the heater and nozzels is pluggd, and possibly the heater. I've got a question-could I use CLR to clean the heater, with replacing t
Heck yeah, give it a shot. Try running some water through it too- fill it up, heat it just to where it's hot and unplug it, shake it around and dump it out. Repeat. You might have to get a wire or something to go through and get the powder loosened b ... Bissell Vacuums

Bissell Powerease Lighweight Deep Cleaner. (Shampooer) After I fill the solution tank with the solution and water, I put it in it's slot, but all of the contents just come flowing out. I have only used this machine twice and it worked ok. You are supposed to press the trigger and the solution sprays out and then release the trigger when you want it to stop. But like I said, now I just put the tank on and all the contents come flowing out. I don't know what's wrong or how to stop it.
I have an Electrolux LITE upright carpet cleaner - about 15 years old. Suddenly last night when using it, from the normal motor (whooshing) sound, the motor suddenly went very slow and with a slight grinding sound. The brushes are now just turning round very slowly and areobviously not picking up anything. Has the motor gone or is this repairable, or should I just get a new cleaner? I have tried to open the machine from the bottom to see if anything is obviously wrong, but it looks complicated a

I have a Vax Rapide Powerglide carpet cleaner. It sprays the solution on to the carpet perfectly but will only suck up the dirty water when in the upright position.
Bissell I inherited the Bissell Model 790 Steam Vac. No solution will come out. Apparently it's clogged somewhere as the previous owner appeared to have used it to vacumn up a powdered carpet cleaner. How do I resolve this problem as the machine is barely used and I would like to salvage it. Thank you
Check the belts first, if ok, does water squirt out of the hose nozzzle, if it does then the heate in the handle asm. is clogged where the tubes hook up to it. If no water squirts out, the the pump isn't working. Pull the top cover off, check all t ... Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Steamvac The last several times that I have used the steam vac to clean the carpet, I've noticed that the solution is not coming out as a spray. Instead it is a steam. Is this normal or is something wrong? Thanks for your help..

I have a Hoover Deluxe Spin Scrub carpet cleaner that has lost suction. I read the solution by Chris Jones of GoVacuum.com, in which he described the design flaw whereby the tool attachment hose tears at the point of connection with the motor housing. That is the case with my machine. Now I just need to know how to repair it. What kind of tape can I use? Plumber's tape? Please help me!!!
A tear in the hose will only affect pick up through the hose when using it to clean furniture, stairs, and such. It will have no effect on the carpet cleaning operation. If the hose cannot be replaced for a while, black electrical tape is one solutio ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

I have a new STEAM VAC Dual V All Terrain Carpet and Hardwood Cleaner. I have used it once and it worked well. Now, the second time, I have no water return. I checked the tank location, the brushes are moving slowly (but the plastic surrounding around the brushes moves as well ??) Water is coming out. There is hot air blowing out, but there is no air suction. What is wrong? Ursula Litzcke
