Hello, most likely you have a clogged condensate line, in order to clean it you will need a wet/ dry vac and attach it to the outlet of the line and the suction pressure should dislodge the clog. Also, if the unit uses a condensate pump make sure it is working, if its not it can cause water to pour out onto the floor.
generally you have to put the pump up to the nozzle and have the lever down then put the nozzle in tightly and then pull the lever up. If after several attempts it doesn't work the pump may be broken, as bike pumps generally break easy
You don't have to "set the pressure", that knob is just for your own reference.
Most problems of this sort are due to not getting a good seal with the tire nozzle. Here are some steps to help you along.
1. put the bike on a flat surface 2. spin the wheel so the nozzle is facing upward 3. put the pump end on the nozzle with the lever down (this is a common mistake as older pumps had to start with the lever up) 4. Push the end down on the nozzle and pull the lever up 5. If you hear air escaping, then hold the pump end on the nozzle for the first few pumps. 6. pump it up till its a bit hard but be careful you can pop it.

Before putting the pump on the valve turn the attachment so you can observe inside it. Move the lever back and forth. Observe at what position the lever causes the fitting to constrict and hold on to the valve. That is the position it should be in when you attach to the valve. I'm not certain but I think you will find that the fitting is able to be used for both presta and schrader valves without adjustment. Just put it on and fasten with the lever. The seal is then established.
On most modern gas pumps there is a sensor in the tip of the nozzle. When it feels to much pressure or liquid it shuts the pump off. When you are filling your tank you need to leave a little room for air to come out. Try to not put the nozzle in as far and see if that will work. You will only need to leave a little bit of room. Hope it helps!
The gas guage has a sending unit in the tank attached to the pump, there is a small circuit board on it that has smal"fingers" that send the signal to the guage.These get worn off and thus sends a false reading to the gas guage in the dash. The gas tank must be removed and a new unit put in to solve the problem. I had to do this repair to mine. As for the gas issue, just try pulling the nozzle back out of the filler neck when putting gas in, sometimes the overflow tube gets plugged up and won't allow the air to escape as the gas goes in the tank, making the gas pump think the car is full, pulling the nozzle will allow the air to escape. Hope this helps.
The F5914 has a hose that must be attached to the pump when using the upholstry attachment. Make sure that the solution hose is pushed onto the pump valve all the way. Try pushing the hose down and then pushing the locking collar down to secure it. This will insure that the hose is fully engaged.
