Do you know it will only draw soap at low pressure? Usually there is a way to adjust the nozzle to low pressure.

My Miele S3141 canister began acting strange this morning. No suction...so I took off the hose and checked for blockage, (nothing). Now I can't get the hose back on the canister. It just slips ar


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.


Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

Will start won't stau running got wet


Have you checked the gas tank. My bet is that water got into the tank and is being sucked up into the carb.
Try suctioning out the bottom of the tank with a hand suction tool with the tiller tilted to get all the water in one corner.
Then remove the bottom cup on the carb and clean it out. Re-assemble and test run! Good luck! Would like to know how it works out!

My Karcher 2400 Pressure Washer will not syphon cleaning fluid. I have a reconditioned machine and the syphon for cleaning fluid has not worked for a while.Everything looks clean but still does not work'...


The black tip nozzle puts the right amount of pressure on the line to draw up the cleaning solution.

If your power washer is like mine, the cleaning fluid adapter is a 'T shaped' brass valve that fits in-line along the hose line.
There is a brass stem sticking out.
The stem has a tiny ball valve on the end.
A plastic hose fits onto the stem, and the plastic hose goes into bucket of cleaner.
As water travels through power washer hose, it creates suction that draws cleaning solution through the tiny ball valve.

The brass ball valve gets clogged or wears out ... we used to replace the stem every so often.
Sherwin Williams used to carry a replacement stem ... but they may not sell little parts any more.
It's been 14 years since I used the suction device.
I got fed up with the thing not working.

We changed over to a pump-up hand-held sprayer for applying cleaning chemical.
The pump-up puts more chemical on the spots where you need it.
So one guy puts chemical on, and second guy comes behind with power washer ... no more replacement parts, and one tip stays in the gun so we never lose a tip.
A pump-up sprayer is half the cost of replacing the T-shaped valve.
Duh-simple is the business model.

Fully charged, filters cleaned, vacuum keeps shutting down in and then starts again only to shut off again. the 6 minute time limit is not used up.


Your battery is losing voltage too quick. It has probably developed a 'memory'. Dyson claims that their handheld has the best suction out of all the handhelds out there. In order to maintain that claim the circuit board will shut off power to the motor when the voltage drops below adequate charge for full suction.
We need someone who can teach us to bypass that part of the circuit so it won't cut power to the motor or you need to get a new battery.
Shorting the battery like an Aircraft battery then re-charging won't fix it.

Pump won't pick up cleaning fluid thru plastic suction tube.. Troy Built with 5 hp engine


The suction tube connects to a small brass piece that has a ball valve. When pump pushes water down hose, it creates suction on the ball valve. The ball valve has to be the right size. Too large, no suction, too small, no suction. The entire world of electronics is based on similar principle.

When the ball valve wears out, or gets clogged, the pump pressure is not able to lift fluid. Try cleaning valve, but my bet is you need a new part with the ball valve.

Used the suction tube with a deck cleaning solution. later I tried to use it with a car wash solution and it would not pull the soap in to wash the car.


Howdy,

vacuum injectors are finicky suckers (pun), and can gum up easily. If you disassemble them, clean the metering pin with steel wool and the ports with a q tip, they sometimes come back to life. Always flush the lines out completely with clean water, especially when using a caustic or concentrated cleaner...

No suction from upholstery attachment


http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf

Problem: Low suction
Problem: Clean solution won’t
dispense
Problem: Brushes/brush indicator
won’t rotate during floor cleaning
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Not firmly plugged in
• Plug unit in firmly
• No voltage In wall plug
• Check fuse or breaker
• Blown fuse/tripped breaker
• Replace fuse/reset breaker
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Recovery tank full/automatic
shut off engaged
• Remove and empty recovery tank
• Blockage In tool on end of hose
• Remove tool and clear blockage
• Recovery tank lid not on
correctly
• Make sure lid is on securely
• Recovery tank front panel not
replaced after stair or upholstery
cleaning
• Replace recovery tank front panel
(page 14)

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
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
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.

GOODLUCK!!!!
