Things to check: Check again that the pipes aren't clogged. Check all the way through from where the muck goes in to where it's supposed to end up, paying particular attention to places where the pipe narrows, goes round a bend, or changes material. Check the machine doesn't just need emptying. Wet/dry machines usually have some sort of float operated stop valve to stop you flooding the motor when you've filled it with water. Make sure this isn't stuck shut. Check everything from the impellor right back to where the muck goes in is airtight. It doesn't take a huge hole to lose you a lot of suction. Pay particular attention to places that are meant to come apart routinely, and places where hoses join to hard fittings. If in doubt, run the machine and listen for sucking noises. If there's a filter between the fan and the air outlet (there usually is) make sure it is clean Assuming the motor is running, check it is turning the fan impeller. Hopefully, one or other of these will get you somewhere. A.

SOURCE: No suction
I had a a low suction problem. Mine was easily fixed. Stand in front of the machine. When you remove the recovery tank there are the notches on the front of the tank that fit down into the machine. In the right hole in which the right notch fits, there should be a black rubber washer on the machine. Mine somehow came off and feel into the machine therefore there was practically no suction as the seal was not airtight. I only discovered this when I took apart the machine and found it floating around. Just something to check.

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.
