I am assuming you refer to the solution tank valve. there are 2 basic models, a one compartment that holds the soap and water mixture and the 2 compartment keeping soap and water separate. in either case, the valve can be replaced. The tank will need evaluation before that can be reapired. I would take the tank into a repair shop

How to fix height adjuster on hoover runabout vacuum?

It probably is not broken. It only operates when you recline the handle into the vacuuming position. At that time it goes to whatever setting you have it set on. When it is in the full upright position, it will be in the highest setting no matter where the nob is set.

Hoover steam vac hose is broken

This applies to Hoover SteamVac model F5899-910.

My unit had a broken hose. I repaired the hose using duct tape and Teflon tape. The breakage seems to be due to a manufacturing error or design defect. The hose is clamped to the unit where it passes to the inside. The position of the clamp did not allow enough slack when the handle is released and the unit is wide open.

The hose coupling has a plastic latch that holds it onto the vacuum nipple. Pry it and remove the coupling. Then trim the ragged end of the hose and clean things up. Wrap the hose with some teflon tape and then tape the hose to the coupling with several turns of duct tape. Attach the hose coupling back onto the vacuum nipple.

Now you should move the clamp say an inch, so that it leaves more slack. Take the two screws out of the clamp and pry out the plastic bracket/cover that holds the clamp in place. Then move the clamp and screw the clamp back onto the bracket/cover. Then snap the bracket/cover back in place.

Take care not to put too much slack in the hose (by moving the clamp too far), as the hose can also bunch up due to being too crowded when the handle is upright.

Inspect the hose and the tape whenever you use it.

Good day! I have a fairly new, hardly used Eureka 3282 avz . Te carpet brush will not turn. How do I get that apart to try to see if it is clogged.

Flip it over. there is a plastic cover with either 2 or 3 screws that hold it on. Take these out. There is also a lip at the very front that the cover slips into. Carefully slip it out of it's slots. (Goes back together the same way) See if the belt is gone (broken) it also slips off and on it's mounts 4 easy cleaning. The roller slips out too for cleaning. Its made to do this as a regular cleaning maintenence.

The motor is spinning and spinning the beater motor but the beater bar wont spin

Check to see if the drive belt to the beater is broken. Also, remove the beater brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at both ends of the brush where the hard rubber/plastic pieces are that hold it in the unit. Spin the beater by hand to make sure it moves freely.

Why won't our Hoover Floor mate deliver water for cleaning?

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.

this may sound harsh and i apologize in advanc. but dyson vacuums are just over priced pieces of junk. you would have gotten better quality out of a 39.00 bissell and now to the repair. the machine is made of cheep plastic which wears and breaks over time. the power switch, and button will have to be replaced which will cost you rougly around 70 bucks. and that is if you do it yourself. the beater bar stop could be a broken engage bar as well. meaning when you turn the nob to hard wood or to floors it turns the beater bar off, but when you turn it to carpet it kicks it back on. the mechanism that does that could be broke as well. i would make dyson warranty the vacuum if it is still under warranty. if it isnt i will say it is not worth the repair costs to keep it. im sorry to have to say this but they are disposable vacuums they are not built with quality.

Canister problem

If it won't latch after cleaning the latch and making sure that everything is seated well, get in touch with Dyson, they're great about making things right with their vacuums.
