The problem was a clogged heating unit which is located in the lower handle. There are two clear hoses going up the inside of the left leg of the lower handle that go to the heater and to the in-line water switch all within the lower handle. I unplugged the metal heating unit water lines and electrical connections (label the connections as you take them apart if you have a hard time remembering things...there were seven connection in all be it water and/or electrical). Removed the heat unit out and then removed the 6 screws holding the heater cover. Inside was a white powdery pasty debris (lime deposit ?) and the water path was clearly blocked in four different places. I cleansed the water trough with a little water and soft toothbrush and several toothpicks then reassembled. If you need new washers go to Orchard or ACE hardware. Take the old rubber washers(they are red) with you for comparison. I didn't need new washers...I just gently cleansed them. I immediately ran clear water through the machine and actually cleaned the carpet with a water rinse only. Will go back and finish the carpet the right way tomorrow. I had only used my machine three times before this happend over a three year period. A friend told me to always rinse it two maybe three times with clear water after using it and before storage. This took me exactly 42 minutes to disassembly and reassemble. Cost savings is several hundred dollars since I have a 5 bdrm house and would need a professional cleaner to do the small dirty traffic lanes all around the house.

sometimes the nozzle holes get plugged above the brushes. if you remove the solution tank you will see where the trigger rod connect to the resevoir to release solution. also you should see that a small amount of solution in the top of the resevoir if no water then the resevoir needs replacement and you are not gettingn the plunger pushed up far enouhg to release solution.

Unscrew the screw on the handle and remove handle. Remove rubber where top screws on. Remove two screws and the top and now unscrew the black pipe where the steam comes out. Now remove the button and see the small metal protrusion on the pot where the button was. Hit it with a hammer a few times softly to remove the scale buildup until the metal starts moving in and out again. I also sprayed it with a little silicone spray. Now put everything back together again. My steamer now works beautifully again!
