Don't know how to use with shampoo

Best to not put shampoo in machine. Put traffic lane cleaner in sprayer with hot water, spray onto carpet after thorough vacuuming, allow cleaner to dwell 5 to 10 minutes and clean and rinse with fresh clean water in machine. For best results do NOT put shampoo in he machine even though it was designed for it. Most of the machines brought in for repairs are clogged with soap gunk. Carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because the soap has been rinsed out of carpet

Rug doctor won't spray water

I had the same thing happen to mine. I looked at the hose in the water tank and the screen at the end if the hose was slimy and clogged. I took the screen off and cleaned it up, put everything back together and it works like new again. Only 2 screws and a screen.

My Dyson - DC14 won't push on my new plush carpet, front end

Same issue: new plush carpet, 7 year old tried and true DC14, wouldn't push across regardless of beater brush on or off. Called Dyson this morning, they suggested removing the small gasket between the floor plate and the assembly holding the beater brush. It's about a 12' gasket just under the screws used to remove the floor plate. Pushing is still a bit stiff, but it is a definite improvement. Whew!

I have a hoover steam vac F5915-900 I bought at walmart about 4 months ago. I used it about 5 times in differnet rooms. Today when I went to use it It won;t pick up the dirty water. I cleaned the filter...

Make sure the suction area of the face plate is clear of all debris. If anything else, call the number on the machine, it's still under warrantee if the machine doesn't work from normal use.

Not sucking up water

Hi.  I had the same problem.  After looking at the manual I went back and made sure the canister was making a proper seal.  That fixed the problem.  Make sure when you put the top back on the canister (that holds the dirty water), that you place the two front hinges in  place first and then snap the center clap on the back of the top.  This will give you a proper seal for suction. (My two front hinges weren't fitting correctly.)
Good luck!

Powerwash proheat

If the unit is spraying ok but your just not getting hot water you could have a defective heater even if the light is on. To test you would need to take the handle apart and see if the heater gets hot by touching it give it about 2 Min's to heat up but be careful it will burn you if it is working properly. Another thing to remember is that even if it is working properly the water won't be very hot especially if you put cold water in it to start out with. The best thing to do is fill it with the hottest water you can get from the tap don't boil it or anything but this will help. If you need any parts or cleaning solution for this machine or any other visit .

Brush does not turn when vac touches floor

You need to change the belt. The belt will not turn the brush roll and is slipping on the drive shaft. This is creating the burning smell you describe.
You say you just brought it home.From where? From repair or is this a new machine.
