Hello, i just finished a successful repair. i did have to take it apart, and there were springs and ss balls(at fog liquid pickup end that i unscrewed to give easy access to blocked pipe) and such so work where parts won't be easily lost and pay attention during disassembly. The problem with mine(several years old) was blockage in the metal line(pipe) that carries the fogger liquid. i used carborator cleaner and a compressor hose with low pressure. i sprayed in the cleaner and then put air pressure each way back and forth till it eventually yet suddenly cleared out then allowed unobstructed passage. then flushed it to clean it well. BE CAREFUL, it can suddenly spray the cleaner out, safety glasses saved me from a bad accident but my face and lips were stinging from the cleaner, and that was with the end facing away from me(but into a bucket and it bounced back at me). Anyway, reassembly took a bit but now it fogs great again. Mine might be a different manufacturer(burgess) but most likely the same basic scenario. Best wishes

I have a black flag propane fogger that clogged also. But instead of using a cleaner that can be harmful I took a propane torch and heated the coils to the point of glowing red and then took and blew it out with a compressor. You do have to take it apart in order to access both ends of the coils. Yes keep all parts together and pay attention as to how it goes back together. Once you blow it out you won't have to flush it out cause everything got cooked to oblivion and blown out.

No pressur


If you are getting pressure at times that would seem to indicate that the pump is till ok. There is a pressure bypass valve that operates when you let go of the trigger - it does not let internal pressures build up monumentally when you release the trigger........if this valve gets stuck in the open position the pressure is reduced considerably because of the bypass path. Unclog it, clear it. or replace the valve to restore normal operation.

020209 pressure washer has no pressure


Your water inlet may be stopped up. Whether this model only has a screened hose washer or a better filter, pay special attention to that. Be sure the pathway is free and clear.

Take each of poppet valves and while pushing (with a pencil or something) on the part that moves up and the spring pushes it back down - with magnification and lots of light, be sure there isn't a small piece of debris affecting one of those valves. Its easy to miss, so look very closely.

Next, remove the hose from the pump. We are by-passing the entire unit that includes pressure hose, trigger gun, lance, spray nozzle. If it seems to pump a lot of water out of the pump--then the problem is most likely the trigger gun is clogged or the pressure nozzle is clogged. Some trigger guns can be taken apart -- some, not so much. Same with nozzles.

I hope this helps you, Randell. If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Will I still get coffee if the pump is broken. The machine is leaking staem and water underneath and I beleive it is the staem valve but a 'dodgy' coffee machine repairman is telling me it is the...


Hello,

I am an expert espresso certified man. First of all your repair man is wrong. Let me explain. If you are getting steam at all, then your pump is not broken. This is the way it works, you have water in your machine, it goes into a area where it heats the water by heating elements, then as it heats it builds pressure by air and heat. The machine has a water pump in it, that operates by of course electricity, it pumps the water that is heated by the elements through the machine to of course make shots of espresso. The steam part is simular as it goes in a area, the gets hot and produces steam from the water, like a iron would of press kind of method. THE MACHINE will not make coffee or steam if pump is not working. If you turn machine on, and hear it humming or running, when trying to make a cup, then motor is running, if you turn it on and try to make a cup of coffee or steam and hear nothing at all, then pump is not working. If your machine is leaking under machine from from the steam valve, means it would not do that if pump is not working. Sense it is leaking, this tells me it is clogged. Most likely your need your machine cleaned good, that means descaled. Clean hoses, use small needle to poke in end of steam wand to clean out good jet air holes and basket screen. Find your manual, and it should tell you how to properly clean your machine, and even can use can of compressed air, that you can spray in hoses. It appears to be it is clogged, and when the pump or lines are clogged , it will back up like a clogged toilet and flood area around base and underneath. This whole problem is a cleaning problem, do to a clog or build up. I hope this. PS no if you pump is out or clogged, you would not get coffee as it need to the pump to work (unclogged) to push the water through the heads. Thanks Mike

I CANT GET MY BISSELL SPOTLIFTER MODEL 1716 TO SPRAY THE SOLUTION.


1) Make sure there is water in the solution tank.

2) Try priming the machine by instructing the consumer to squeeze the trigger

repeatedly for 1 to 2 full minutes. Important: If you cannot

squeeze the trigger all the way in, remove the tank from the back of the

machine and then try squeezing the trigger with the tank removed. There is an

internal valve that could be sticking. By removing the solution tank and squeezing

the trigger, it should break it loose, allowing the trigger to be fully depressed.

3) Make sure the open end of the siphon tube in the solution tank is not pushed into the

side of the tank, covering the end of tube. If it is, push the bend in the

Siphon tube toward the back of the solution tank.

4) Check to see if the siphon tube has become disconnected from the outlet fitting on

the inside of the solution tank. If so, you need to buy a replacement solution tank. Parts

can be found at www.bissell.com

5) Check to see if air comes through the spray tip by repeatedly squeezing the trigger

with solution tank off the unit. If not, spray tip may be clogged. Try and unclog

spray tip with a pin or paper clip.

If still no spray, please check the following:

a) Make sure the solution tank is installed properly.

b) Check to see if black O-ring is present on rear connector to solution tank.

The washer pauses mid-cycle. The pump filter is not clogged. After watching the GE video on how to unclog the pump filter, it said if the pump filter was not clogged there may be an imbalance problem. ...


Make sure that your cold water side of the water valve on the back of the unit is no clogged. Mid cycle is usually when the rinse cycle begins and that usually only uses cold water.

The lamp is flashing and it seems it doesn't pump in any water in the machine


Possible failure of the inlet valve or the valve is clogged at the filter end. remove and check inlet line. if flow does not come after valve is triggered, remove clean and reset.
Also the main pump can be faulty as it is not able to pump with the desired pressure.
check pump for dirt accumulation.

Dyson Animal, lost suction and bypass valve seems to be loose


Dear terrygivens, 2-17-2009 4:12am EST (USA)

Most suction problems are caused by a clog from picking up something you probably didn't see or if you have pets an accumulation of pet hairs!

To clear it out take a metal coat hanger and unbend it til it's straight, then bend the end and tape it so when you push it through to unclog your vac it doesn't rip the hose.

Push the coat hanger in from the bottom brush area through the opening where the suction is. Also push it in and out anywhere else you can......You'll probably find something clogged....keep working it til it loosens and intermittently turn on the suction.

If you have a second vac with a hose, use that hose for suction on the clogged vac!

This should do it!
