IS IT NORMAL TO VIBRATE LOUDLY WHEN PUSHING RED BUTTON TO RELEASE WATER? I RENTED ONE TODAY. IT PRETTY MUCH IS QUIET TILL I PUSH THE RED BUTTON.


Red button activates the pump, brushes and suction is my guess and pumps can be noisy. You could phone the rental place and ask. As long as it cleans your carpets, all is good.

How do I vacuum my index pool


Even with an "upgraded" pump, it still doesn't provide enough suction to do a good job. They are just a better than non upgraded 'toy'! But... Take your vacuum hose with the vacuum head attached and one end connected to your telescopic pole and send it to the bottom of the pool. Then slowly feed the rest of the hose pushing water into the hose until you reach the opposite end. Water should come out of the other end! If it does not, you did not prime the hose correctly. Try it again this time push deeper into the water beating the hose slowly pushing the water up into the hose at the surface level. Once you have water coming out of the other end you plug it into your suction port. Turn on the pump and now you have section at the other end of the hose, that the vacuum head. Now just vacuum the bottom of the pool, as you would vacuum your carpet in your home.
all of that dirt, sand, silt, and other debris, will end up in your filter element. You will have to clean it, if not replace it.

I don't know how to vacuume me pool. I have a hayward sand filter


all you need is a pole, a vacuum hose, and a vacuum head. connect the hose to the vacuum head and the head to the pole. Submerge the vacuum head and the pole into the pool and push the vacuum hose slowly straight down so that it fills with water. Once the entire vacuum hose is filled with water, plug it into the skimmer suction or wall port. You may have to adjust the valves at the pump to increase suction to wherever you have to vacuum hose plugged in to.

Hope this helps

Pump not sucking in water what would cause this?


These pumps are not designed to **** water like some might think. There is going to be some vacuum created for the fact that it is an axial pump. You really should have a water supply pushing water to the unit instead of trying to use it to **** water.

I have used a pump like this to **** water but it only would pull water from a 6 to 7 ft hose and nothing longer. If it use to **** before then it sounds like your low pressure valves in the pump are becoming worn out and would have to be replaced.

The water won't come out. The carpet is still dry after repeatedly pushing trigger to dispurse water on carpet.


If it will not disperse water then that means that the pump belt needs to be replaced. Here is the belt you need:

I have the Oreck Sanapathic DMS2000 Handheld Steam Vacuum, but no steam comes out when I push the button. I hear the motor, is there any buttons I am missing or any help on how to make it work, been...


ORECK DMS2000 No Steam
First, tested tank and filter flow together using suction via
plastic tubing. Worked freely Second, removed pump
and disconnected hoses and terminals [watch location,
three terminals on pump, two plugs]. Pump has a slug inside
and I could blow water either way. Sucked white vinegar
both ways until check action returned. Use distilled water
in future!

My Hoover will not turn on


there was probably a leak in the hose/piping near the pump in the vacuum that shorted out the motor. you will need a new motor for the vacuum. you will also need a new pump assembly. i strongly recommend that you also replace all the internal tubing and places where the pipes join.

We found that ours had a simpler problem. Upon opening the motor compartment, we saw that the pump had "nudged" up from it's mounting slots. It is held down by a clip on each end and one had pushed up, allowing the pump to ride up and thereby disconnecting the short hose which kept the "suction train" intact. Once we re-seated the pump correctly and pushed the clip back down, the hose reached nicely and our suction was re-established.
Getting into the motor and pump area was the hardest part. Inside the power hose "cubbie" is a small hex head screw. Find your shortest stubbiest 1/4 inch open ended wrench to loosen this screw (lefty-loosey). Once the screw is out, gently pry along the edge with fingers and thumbs. The top (ours is green) part should separate itself from the bottom (ours is beige) part. The pump in our unit is red and has a 4-5 inch hose leading from the end of the pump to the outlet (on the outside of the green or top part). Re-assemble and go for it!

Wouldn't be the pump, the pump pushes the water out when you are spraying. If a suction problem check for clogged filters, is the tank sitting down tight?
