    I am experiencing the same problem, no extraction of solution. please advise

  • Anonymous Feb 21, 2009

    The Kenmore PowerSpin carpet cleaner has stopped sucking up the solution. It worked fine when I cleaned a carpet a couple of months ago. Now I want to do my other carpets and nothing happens. Only a little solution will come out at a time, and whatever there is doesn't get sucked up.

My Hoover Max extract dual v cleaner worked fine cleaning the carpet but when it came to using the hose attachment for my sofa, there was no suction and the brush did not spin.

Hello, Kathy -

If you have not yet checked your owner's manual; the Troubleshooting section, I suggest you do.

If you do not have the manual, you can download a PDF (Adobe Reader) version here:

This is the link to the Troubleshooting section in the manual:

I hope you made sure the dirty water tank was empty and that the filter screen is clean.

How can Berber carpets be maintained fresh and new-like for a longer period of time?

You can clean them with household units but even professionals have trouble with berber carpet because of its tight weave and usual inlaid patterns. Dry carpet cleaning between professional cleanings will help keep carpet looking new without staining. My suggestion is to use a dry carpet cleaning machine and then have a professional come in with hot water extract as often as every year depending on traffic. I sell the SEBO DUO machine you can see by clicking the link provided.

Hoover SteamVac isn't extracting solution from carpet. Motor runs and the brushes weren't turning at first but do now

That vacuum is fine on liquid extraction but often gets clogged by debris when it hits a solid. It would be better to do the clean with the steamvac then follow it with a wet/dry shop vac to be sure you got all the water. I say this because the vac built into that hoover is way too easy to clog.

Bissell pro heat will not extract water from the carpet

Try checking the top section of the machine (where the dial is located to switch it from floor to tool) and there is a little red plastic piece about 1 inch square on the inside of it. This is a lint filter that has a little door on it. Open the door or remove the entire thing to clean it out. It is probably completely blocked with hair, etc.. which is why you have no suction. Replace it after you clean it out and hopefully your problem will be solved!

My hoover carpet scrubber the brushes won

(1) Remove the brush block and assure the presence of the square drive pin on top of one brush. It should be about 1/4 inch square, two inches long to connect o the drive mechanism.

(2) Remove and clean the filter screen from the base, behind the brushes. Squeeze the two red tabs together, and pull down from the base. Clean the hiar/debris from the screen.

(3) Assure the Brush Speed knob on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.

Instructions or manuel was not included.

i downloaded the manual for your machine, but not sure how to access it for you,but i do know about the problem, the tank that sits down on the front of the steamer and it has 2 clips that you push in to lock the tank is where your dirty water is put in when you are cleaning your carpets. the tank above ,the one where you put your solution and water in is what is used to shampoo your carpet. on the handle is a trigger (black) button ,this is the button you push in to release your solution onto your carpet. release the button to extract the water from your carpet,moving your steamer in a back and forth motion. the trigger button is the only button on the machine and is only used to put the water /cleaner located in the upper tank on your carpet, releasing this button and moving your steamer back and forth over the shampooed part with extract your dirty water into the tank that sits below the solution tank. go on and click on carpet cleaners ,scroll down to find yours and click on manual. and the owner manual will download and you can print it out for future reference, i hope this will solve your problem, sandy
