Hello! The valve assembly is not replaceable on the F6210. We recommend replacing the solution tank part number 90001091, can be purchased online or through a local service center. Hope this was helpful!

I can't get the hose portion apart to see why it is clogged?


There is a plastic retaining ring securing the hose to the rear of the machine. By removing the ring the hose can be removed and checked for blockage. If it is clear, you may have to remove the rear duct assembly and check inside. The large "J" shaped duct is held in place by eight # 20 torx screws. If this is clear, the valve assembly inside the rug nozzle may be broken and require professional repair.

My steam cleaner is leaking as soon as i put the clean water tank on machine


The most common reason for leakage is that the reservoir assembly has gone bad. If you look in the area behind the tank, you will see a rod that pushes down on a small round rubber seal when you squeeze the trigger. The assembly being pushed on is the reservoir, and the internal valve may be bad. This would require replacement of the assembly. ( Part # 43526016, msrp $6.49 ). Another possibility is that the seal that the tank sits on is worn or missing. There is a round black rubber seal that the tank sits on. There is a plastic pin in the middle which opens the tank outlet valve. I sometimes see this seal missing - usually because a child has pulled it off. If it is missing it must be replaced. ( Part # 38784060, msrp $1.29)

Cannot reinstall valve pipe assembly on Dyson dc17 vacuum


Take off the cyclone canister and flip open the filter cover. (The U-shaped tube at the bottom of the vacuum is probably already off-if not, release the lock with a screwdriver and remove it.) Release the vacuum from the upright positon, so that the head is extended. Align the value pipe assembly so that the clear tabs line up while the small extension off the value pipe faces the front of the vacuum (ie, is near the filter area). Now you have to carefully twist the value pipe clockwise while lining us the small extension with the black groove inside the head piece by moving the head back into the upright positon at the same time. Replace the U-shaped tube.

My NuTone built in central vacuum is putting dirt out instead of picking it up. We have just changed the bag.


From the information here, it sounds like you do not have any suction. If this happened at the same time you replaced the bag, I'm guessing that the unit did not seal when you put it back together. Make sure the bag is seated like it should be and the cover that you removed to replace the bag is sealed and locked into place. An easy way to check this would be to remove the inlet side tubing from the machine and check the suction there. If the unit has a utility valve, be sure that it is closed. You should have good suction there unless the bag cover part of the canister is not sealing onto the rest of the unit, or the fan assembly is damaged. The latter of which is pretty rare, and it would probably make a good bit of noise. If you have good suction at the unit, then you either have a clog or an open pipe somewhere. I hope this helps. Please comment with more details if it doesn't. Good Luck!

Loss of suction when using upright. Suction remains for samll tools


I checked all the pipes and seals. There is a flexible pipe which you can see underneath that connects the front rotating brush assembly to the vacuum system. This pipe can crack and loss of suction occurs when using it upright. The pipe can be repaired temporarily with strong fabric sticky backed tape (e.g. carpet seal tape). A new pipe can be fitted with a few tools.
