When you place the clean water tank on the machine, there is a connection between the tank valve and the seal on the body of the unit. If you have been using the wrong solution, ie. lysol or pine sol, they contain elements that will cause the seals to absorb the solution and they will swell and the valve will not open to release the solution into the machine. If this is the case, you will have to replace the main seal on the machine and the small seal on the valve in the tank. I have seen this problem alot because it can be hard to find the proper solution that was designed for the machine.
Put cold water only in the tank and place it on the machine. As you are pushing it into place, look through the clear plastic of the tank and observe the valve. You should see it lift slightly and hear the "glug" of water flowing. You should also see bubbles rise up inside the tank. If this doesn' happen, then the seal and valve are probably compromised and will have to be replaced. Don't use any solutions or additives that contain petroleum distolates or solvent bases as these are the main culprits that will be absorbed and distort the seals.

There is a black shaft with a black circular arm at a right angle to the shaft. The black plastic arm that sticks out of the front ( farthest away from the hinge) of the roller assembly plugs into the circular arm so that moving the scrub/vacuum slider causes the roller assembly to move up and down. I can do it with my finger, or use a flat blade screwdriver. I'm assuming you mean the black plastic thing with the little rollers on it.

After reading postings I created my own solution. I took a 1.5cm (approximate length) flush head finishing screw and screwed it into the button contact of the white memebrane and adjusted it to the necessary heigth to make the rod depress at the corrrect depth. My initial placement was too high and I had a continuos flow of water, but was able to fine tune. Also note the head of the screw I used was a similar circumference of the nob of the white membrane.

you will need to replace the squeege that is located on the nozzle. 3 screws will take it off. you can get this at a vac shop or order it from the company, filter may also need to be changed

The water channel hose could be torn. you can check by removing the lower tank and tilting it backwards, it is located in the lower section. could also be the filter cover. it is needed for full suction control.
