Leaking Carper Shampooer

My carper Shampooer leaks out the shampoo all over the carper even before I turn on the shampooer. The tank has also started to leak. The shampooer is a Eureka and it is only 1-1/2 years old. Of course the warranty has expired. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I have the same problem. I fill the tank with hot water, and if I don't get it in quite right, there is water water everywhere. Repositioning the tank did help each time, but I agree that it is a design flaw.



    I am also struggling with the fact that no water is coming out of the upholstery nozzle any more. I've taken the handle apart, and looked at the button under there. The button seems to get stuck, and I agree perhaps there is not enough height in the button design. I am going to try adding a pad to improve the contact. When I took it apart I found a spring laying around after I had taken it apart. Is there a spring in there somewhere?

I have contacted Eureka and they have suggested I send back the serial number label, and describe the problems I am having with it. They have offered/suggested in my phone call to them, that they would likely replace the unit. I'll see how it turns out. Just sent the letter away (Sep 2, 2008).

I have an Eureka Atlantis Deep Steam Extractor and it does the same thing. It's not new but it hasn't been used much.

The manual says to "push the tank in until it snaps into place". Everything looks fine across the board so I believe this particular model is just a bad design overall.

My recomendation: Get a new carpet cleaner from Target or Wal-Mart.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Liquid comes out of shampooer but it isn't sudsy. What could be wrong?


Check the Shampooer Tank seating. Turn the unit off and unplug. Remove the Shampooer Tank and inspect the reservoir for any foreign substance. Reseat tank. Replug and turn on unit. Remember to keep your filters clean. There's the lint filter on the cap of the main tank and there's the Flow Filter (Turn Flow Indicator Cap counter-clockwise to remove, remove rotor, and filter is under it. Clean and replace in reverse.) Bissell Consumer Care 1-800-237-7691 if you need. Additionally check you Use Guide for more information.

My shampooer only sprays a single stream of shampoo and water whenever I use it on the carpet... That and I can't get it to lay a nice even layer of shampoo to soak in and then pick it up...it always does...


You are probably missing the foam screen on the tank outlet. There should be a plastic disk with a fine screen in it on the tank outlet. If the screen is missing, foam will not be produced; and just soap water will be sprayed out. Sometimes the screen assembly can be found in the end of the shampooer hose.

I have a Kirby vacuum with the shampooing attachment. The shampoo/liquid comes out of the shampooer in a drizzle of liquid. There is no foam.


You need to check that the little round screen is in the hole where the hose attaches to the shampoo tank. My guess is that the little round screen is wedged sideways in the end of the hose.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was...


Few things:
Make sure the sponge and the valve under the sponge (water tank) is clean.
Make sure you follow the instructions (f you do not have the manual you can find one HERE)
See if the straw inside the water tank is not clogged (happens when you use toilet tissue or some other paper to dry inside of the tank after you shampoo)

Noise - if it is noisy al the time - it may need new shampooer brush roll. Also check the tray - bar brush roll bearings overheat and melt the tray... Never submerse brush roll in water when cleaning it. Clean it simply by lifting the shampooer nozzle and letting it spin for 10-20 seconds. If you have tu put it under running water - put it back in the shampooer nozzle (with tray and shield) put on Kirby and turn it on for 20 seconds or so. If it stays soaken wet - moisture damages barings.

Good luck

If your trying to shampoo your carpets but the water flow is to weak and it trickles through the spout to the carpet leaving small puddles

This problem often occurs when the foam filter is not replaced after rinsing or ends up in the shampoo hose at an angle preventing foaming. If you take the small shampoo hose of the shampoo tank the filter should be on the tank, if not, it may have come off and be in the hose. If it’s not there locate it, likely in the area where you last cleaned the shampooer or in the box, and put it back on the tank. While this should be cleaned after each use, care should be taken to replace it and not lose it.

The problem may also occur if you don’t actually add the Kirby Dry Foam Shampoo to the water or if you use some thin else.

Take care to also clean and replace the air filter after rinsing. It is located under the shampoo tank where the tank fits onto the vacuum.
