Question about Karcher K DS 5500 Vacuum

1 Answer

Karcher Press & Ex 800

My Karcher Press & Ex 800 extraction carpet cleaner will not spray. Vacuum motor works fine but sprayer is dead. I checked the switch with a continuity tester and it is fine. Is there a fuse that needs to be replaced. Help! My carpeting is nasty. Gonna pull it up and replace with hardwood floors, so if you can help me, I'll be selling this thing cheap soon!

Thanks,
Art

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

Why can't I use the attachments to clean my couch?


You may want to check for a pinched hose. Unwind the hose completely and lay it out and try your sprayer again. If that doesn't work than try reseating the tank (turn the unit off, remove the tank and then replace it, wait 1 minute and turn the unit back on.) AND, if you haven't been cleaning the filters now would be a good time to do that. In the tank there is a lint filter on the lid and there is another filter under the flow indicator (turn flow indicator cap counter-clock wise, remove rotor, remove filter. clean filter and replace everything in reverse manner. Hope that helps. If not Bissell Consumer Care number is 1-800-237-7691.

How does the carpet cleaner work


Resolve carpet cleaner is a cleaner specifically designed to work on carpets. Resolve comes as a steam concentrate, a powder, a foam spray, or liquid spray. Before using the carpet cleaner you should vacuum the carpet. Resolve carpet cleaner works by being applied to the carpet then worked in with a soft bristled brush. Depending on the cleaner, it will be sprinkled or sprayed onto the carpet. Use the brush to work the cleaner down into carpet fibers. There is a waiting period for the cleaner to work, then you vacuum the cleaner out of the carpet.

Hoover SteamVac isn't extracting solution from carpet. Motor runs and the brushes weren't turning at first but do now


That vacuum is fine on liquid extraction but often gets clogged by debris when it hits a solid. It would be better to do the clean with the steamvac then follow it with a wet/dry shop vac to be sure you got all the water. I say this because the vac built into that hoover is way too easy to clog.
