Question about Eureka 2553A Atlantis Handheld Wet/Dry Vacuum

Open Question

My Eureka Atlantis Express is brand new - never used. I took it out of the box, read the manual, filled the soap and clean water tanks, put them in. I lifted the machine off the counter to take into the living room but all the water came running out of the bottom all over the kitchen floor. I can see where the little white plastic piece sticks up into the water release valve and lets the water out. How do you stop this? Can it be fixed?

You will just have to take it apart to see if a hose is loose, came off, or is cracked.

make sure that the two slide-tabs on the front of the machine are all the way down so that they can hold the front see-through cover down and create suction at the front. I did the same thing. you can tell when they get moved while cleaning because you will hear a muffled pop like something just got sucked into the vacuum. It is just the sound of suction being broken.

SOURCE: no water and brushes not working

Sadly, the advice I got from Eureka was "Time for a new attachment". They can tell where to find a service agent. Call the service agent, and ask if Eureka has solved this problem. Don't waste your time trying to fix it - believe me, it's not worth it unless you are a master with switches, etc.

If Eureka has come up with a new design for that upholstery attachment, the service guy will know because millions are having problems with it (by the looks of it!). I also heard this model was discontinued, but I did not hear that from Eureka when I phoned about my problem.

SOURCE: No suction or spray - Eureka Atlantis Steam Cleaner

I got the machine working. I think because it hadn't been used for awhile that the seals were dried out. I wet them and let it sit for awhile and then I could push the containers all the way in and seated them properly. Then it started working no problem and I got to clean my carpets.

Where can i get the shampoo? Can i find the owners manual online?


you should be able to get the shampoo at wal-mart and any place else they sell the steam cleaners. You do not have to use the eureka shampoo for this unit, however, it is more recommended.

I mean you can use the hoover, and dirt devil shampoo if you can find that, or something generic. Because the machine is mixing the soap for you with the water, anything will work.

As for the owners manual, you can get it here.

Eureka atlantis...water won't spray out.


Try taking the upholstery nozzle apart, there are only a couple of screws, and make sure the little tube is attached where it is supposed to be attached. Be careful when you take it apart, and remember how to put it back together. Try running some water in the one end and see if it comes out the other end. I had a problem with the grip switch not working, and ended getting Eureka to send me a whole new unit as it was still under warranty. I honestly tried to fix it myself, but I don't think the design is good enough to be fixed, so replacement is usually the better choice. Again, I say, shame on Eureka for such a bad product. A good appliance service depot should be able to get a new hose for you, but if you have to pay big bucks, I think it is better to try a different brand than Eureka. I'm assuming by your question that the nozzle is the one on the upholstery hose attachment.

Leaking


Could be that the despensing tank has melted and deformed at the connection point. This is what happened to me when I put in really hot tap water. The heat allowed the connection (where the water/soap outlet is) to deform when using it. Now when I fill the tank and place it in the machine the water just leaks out all over the place with no control.
If you look at the bottom of your tank, where the water comes out, you may be able to see that the plastic is mis-shaped or deformed slightly. It probably doesn't take much for the seal to be broken.

Water leaking


The water tanks on this unit have had a very bad history of leaks. Most of the repair people had never heard of this unit, but one did, and had a spare set of tanks. If the unit is still under warranty, it is worth your while to get a replacement unit. Call Eureka, and ask them how to get a replacement unit, especially if you are having more than one issue with the unit (such as leaking, no heat, broken upholstery nozzle, etc.). I had success in sending back the serial number plate and a detailed list of my problems. They sent me a new unit, and I was able to get at least one unit working properly. Some repair men may be able to fix leaks in the seals on the tank. Hold the tank up and if it leaks, well you got your problem! Eureka will not solve your problem, I've discovered they like to let their service depots handle their junk. Most service depots can give you a solution if they are worth their salt. If the service depot can still get tanks, go that direction. If no replacement tanks are available, call Eureka for a whole unit.

Put water in the tank to the fill line. Turn on the unit, and press the spray as you need it. This is a silly question, and should be taken off the board.

Eureka Atlantis 2591A Extractor - Won't spray


Hard to say without seeing it, is there a function type knob that you would switch from carpet to hose? Did the hose attachment lid close ok? Other then take, if this is new, it has a years warranty on it, just take it to a waranty shop for repair.

I have an Eureka Atlantis Deep Steam Extractor and it does the same thing. It's not new but it hasn't been used much. The only thing the booksays is to put the tank in until it snaps into place. (Like we didn'ttry that.) Apparently it's a bad design. The seal on mine looks fine.

If I was doing the floor I'd just keep going but I'm trying to do my couches and I don't need a huge puddle on the floor.
