1.make sure that the sol tank is in there correctly. 2. when putting the machine together, the upper handle assembly goes on but you have to screw it down, if it is screwed down, the only thing that is left is the pump assembly that the guide rod hits. the rod hits this button inside of the machine and sometimes this gets jamed or all together stops working. the cause for this is usually from putting the wrong sol in the machine. hope this helps

Why doesn't the spray trigger release any cleaning solution when it is squeezed?


The water pump is most likely burned out and needs to be replaced. Carpet machines are notorious for broken water pumps.

The motorized head starts as soon as it's connected without me having to squeeze the trigger. should this happen?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your new DC44 - the motorised heads should definitely not be rotating when attached to the vacuum for storage. They should only rotate when you're holding down the on/off trigger and using the vacuum for cleaning.

I'm confident we can resolve this for you, and as your machine is so new it should be well within our free 2-year parts and labour cordless guarantee. Please email me directly at help@dyson.co.uk so I can take some further details.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Hoover floormate fh40160 won't dispense solution


Hi there! Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. Try these quick steps.

1. Recline the handle.
2. Pump the trigger vigorously about 60 times.
3. Power the cleaner on and squeeze the trigger for 60 seconds.

The cleaner should start to dispense the solution. Be sure you are using only the recommended cleaning solution to avoid internal damage. If your Floormate is still not dispensing there could be an issue with your pump. We would recommend taking the cleaner in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center to you. Service Center Locator

Hope this helps!

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

It turns on, it makes the noises, the brushes are spinning, but the water/cleaner isn't getting to the floor


Hello! Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger to get the solution flowing. To prime the trigger, recline the handle and pump the trigger vigorously 60 times. Then, power the unit on and squeeze the trigger for about 60 seconds. The solution should begin to flow. It may be necessary to repeat these steps a few times. To avoid internal damage be sure you are only using the cleaning solution recommended for this unit. If the unit is still not dispensing we recommend taking the cleaner in to a vacuum repair center for repair. Follow the link to locate the nearest authorized service center to you.

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.
