You can clean them with household units but even professionals have trouble with berber carpet because of its tight weave and usual inlaid patterns. Dry carpet cleaning between professional cleanings will help keep carpet looking new without staining. My suggestion is to use a dry carpet cleaning machine and then have a professional come in with hot water extract as often as every year depending on traffic. I sell the SEBO DUO machine you can see by clicking the link provided.

The most common issue with this is the white nozzle tip broken. sometimes it comes out. it still could be the trigger. take it to a shop and they can tell right away. the trigger is spring loaded, you should feel tension.

It sounds like one of the hoses that supplies solution has either ruptured or come disconnected and is running out through the machine. Disassembling it is the only solution to check for that problem.

That part has been discontinued. You should take it to your local vacuum repair shop to have it diagnosed. If the switch is actually at fault they can most likely help you with an alternate switch. It may not be the switch , so buying one would be a waste of money.
