    Suction works, brushes work, but the machine doesn't spit the water/solution, rendering it completely useless. Could there be a clog somewhere I don't see?

Can I add vinegar to the water and steam clean laminate flooring?


Unless Shark says water only I don't think that would be a problem. All the vinegar will do is remove any grease on the floor and perhaps remove some bad odor. I rinse my hair with vinegar water every day after shampoo and conditioner. Only then do I consider my baby fine hair clean!

Proheat 9200 water/solution is not getting to the carpet but hose/tool working ok


Do you happen to live where the water is hard? If so you have calcium deposits that is clogging the machine. put it in the tub... fill the water/solution tank with HOT vinegar. Let it sit a bit then plug it in and press the trigger several times until you get a good flow. Once all the vinegar is through the machine... put about a half tank of water through it as a rinse. Good luck.

My grey & purple steam mop is getting very little steam at the head. is there a way to clean it without damaging the product? or is there another solution for low steam?


Mixing white vinegar with water about a cup of vinegar and a cup of water ratio and let it steam through the mop. This is also good for steam irons and other appliances such as coffee/tea makers. The acetic acid in the vinegar will dissolve the calcium build up that blocks the steam ports and will not hurt plastic or floors. If you object to the vinegar smell, then mix a little lemon juice with the last cup of water and this rids you of the vinegar smell. I use the white vinegar to mop the wooden floors in the house.

Deliming

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE

Type of Water Cleaning Frequency

Soft water every 80 brew cycles, Hard water every 40 brew cycles

Your espresso maker may be delimed using one quart of white household vinegar. Clean the water tank first, following steps l-5:

1. Make sure the steam control knob is in the center off position and that the plug is disconnected from the electrical outlet.

2. If the machine is cool and the pressure has been released, remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of undiluted white household vinegar into the water tank.

3. Screw on the pressure cap and allow machine to sit overnight with the vinegar solution in the water tank.

4. Remove pressure cap and discard vinegar through the top opening of the espresso maker.

5. Rinse the water tank thoroughly with tap water, repeating this step twice.

To wash internal parts:

Make sure you clean the inside of the water tank first. Remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of fresh white household vinegar into the water tank. Screw the pressure cap back on top of the water tank. Make sure the cap is on tight. Insert the filter holder into the brew head and place the glass decanter with lid on the drip tray. Plug the machine into the electrical outlet and turn the power switch on. An indicator light on the power switch will tell you the machine is on. Place a cup with cold water under the steam nozzle. When vinegar begins to flow into the decanter, insert the nozzle into the water and open the steam nozzle slowly by turning the steam control knob downward. After a few seconds, close the steam nozzle by turning the knob back up to center. This will clean any residue left in the nozzle from frothing milk. When all the vinegar has been pumped into the decanter and the flow has stopped, turn the power switch to the center off position and allow the machine to cool. Repeat steps 1-7 twice using only tap water to rinse any remaining traces of vinegar out of the machine.

Decanter cleaning

1. Pour warm white vinegar in the decanter and let soak for 20 minutes.

2. Discard the vinegar, Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a

soft cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners.

Steam doesn't come out anymore when I pull the trigger. I think the water in the tank is getting hot, but when I pull the trigger, only a little water comes out. No steam


Try putting some white vinegar in the tank to dissolve any hard water deposits. You should use only distilled water in this machine. Don't try to clean anything with the vinegar in it, but take it outside to run the vinegar through.

9200 sprays out of hose but out of floor


Try taking the tank off, remove the 2 spray nozzles and blow thru them to see if they were clogged. You could try running a mix of vinegar and water, sometimes that will open up any clogs. Is the knob on the floor setting?

Vinegar


Do not add anything to the tank.... Vinegar is corrosive and that would potentially be very bad.
