My Hometek Steam Penguin wont produce steam


Hi
I opened whole thing and found that no suction to the pump or pressure from the pump. Opened the clear box which contains the pump and the el-motor. Then I opened the white pump and found it was assembled wrong way round. There are two tiny one way silicon "valves" which should produce the flow of the water to the heater. I also wiped off part of the sticky grease away. Now it works. 4 hours work, but it was interesting to learn the function :) .

Hmmm............ looks like the impeller is already stuck from a year w/o using it!


I suggest if u could open it and spray some penetrating oil on the bushing of the pump motror and the impeller, force the motor to turn manually to set it's rotor FREE. or just POUR some penetrating( I usually use BRAKE FLUiD ) oil in the pump and let it seat for a couple of days.


If don't have a knowhow in opening and repairing such machine, u coud bring it to ur tecnician or service center to fix that up!


Hope that helps u out!

Bissell 9200 upright carpet cleaner does not spray water. Could it be the pump or solenoid, or both?


It could be the pump. You can open it up and see if the pump is working by taking the pump input tube and inserting it into a bowl of water. Pull the trigger and see if water is leaving at the pump output.

However, ensure you have the simpler things covered first:
Ensure you have water in tank and solution (or water in solution tank). When you start the vacuum up, the pump starts to prime itself. If you have air in the system, it takes a little longer to prime. Allow the vacuum to run for 1 minute before attempting to pull the trigger. Then pull the trigger.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to open the unit up and check the hoses for any clogs, and next test the pump to see if it is functioning.

Pump motor sounds like it is running but is not pumping


The pumps in these machines are very simple and there's almost nothing to go wrong. If the problem is actually in the pump, the most likely thing is that there's something stuck in one of the valves, but this is unlikely as long as you've got an undamaged filter on the intake tube in the clean water tank. More likely is that the diode has failed in the live wire supplying the pump. The function of the diode is to act as an electrical one-way valve, and if it fails the pump will sound like it's working but it won't shift any water. I don't know of an easy way to check the diode, but replacing the pump lead-wires should be cheap. If that doesn't solve the problem, fit a new pump (they're not expensive).
Good luck! Please remember to rate this response, thanks.

My pump runs but won't pump


Refer to the discussion at the other thread: http://www.fixya.com/support/t3309646-pump_motor_sounds_like_running_but_not

You will need to remove the top domed lid to access the working parts. Refer to http://www.fixya.com/support/t3543424-two_top_sections_held_together

Examine the water lines to ensure they are attached to the pump. If you feel you can do so without shocking yourself on any exposed electrical connectors, try disconnecting the inlet hose. Buy a two-foot section of the same size hose from the hardware store and connect it to the pump inlet. Plug in the unit (be careful!!!) and use the pump switch to see if it draws water. Then try reconnecting the inlet and connect the outlet to the new hose to see if the pump pulls water from through its suction tube and will pump through the new hose.

Hi.

No the switch for the pump will work without main vacuum switched on.
Your problem could either be faulty pump switch or faulty pump,
You should be able to get spares relatively easy from any independant vacuum repair shop.
Dont try currys etc they wont have a clue what your talking about.
