How can I get the bag compartment open without the latch on it?

I've always connected the hose to the exhaust or reversed it and sucked the debris back out.
No latch? Try to figure out how it worked and then try to duplicate the function with whatever tool works.

How do I clean the gear box?

By gear box do you mean the inside of Roomba or do you mean the latched brush section on the bottom? You can open the two latches and clean the brushes after taking them out. You can pop out the white/black ball wheel and clear the hair and thread that catches in there. You can unscrew the screw that holds the spinning white brushes and clear the stuff out of there. You can take out the filter compartment and remove all the screws to really clean that out. I started to open up the main compartment of Roomba to clean it out and stopped when it got more complicated. I know there's probably stuff in there, but so much gets caught on everywhere else that there's little left to get into the inner gearing, in my opinion.

Shark Euro Pro Steamer

Hi, you could try the following steps, if you have not done so already. Some of these steps may seem like common sense, but it's for people to forget about checking the least expensive part to replace first, so if some of the steps are those that you have already tried, then feel free just to skip through to the ones you have not tried already.
  1. 1
    Make sure the power cord is plugged firmly into the outlet. The steam mop will not start if it the power cord is loose.
  2. 2
    Check the fuse box or circuit breaker connected to the outlet the steam mop is plugged in to. Replace any blown fuses. Reset any tripped breakers.
  3. 3
    Check the water tank if the Shark steam mop will not produce steam. Add water to the tank if it is empty. The mop will not make steam without water in the tank. To fill the tank, turn the tank cap counterclockwise and lift it up to remove it. Set the filling funnel into the tank opening. Pour water through the funnel into the tank until the water level reaches the "Max" fill line on the tank. Replace the cap.
  4. 4
    Inspect the microfiber cleaning pad if the steam mop is leaving water on the floor. If the microfiber pad is too wet, it will leave water on the floor. Unplug the mop from the wall outlet. Replace the microfiber cleaning pad. To replace the pad, move the latch strips out of the hooks on the mop head. Pull the pad off. Set the new cleaning pad on the mop head. Hook the latch strips onto the hooks on the mop head.
  5. 5
    Use distilled water if the steam mop is leaving white spots on the floor. Hard water may cause white spots to be left.
If none of the above work, then is it something that you purchased recently, and is new? If you did, then it could still be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty regardless of whether or not the original length of the warranty has expired. This could be due to the fact that you have received a product that has some sort of manufacturing fault, rather than it stop working through misuse by the user.
If it's a common problem, then you will more then likely be able to return it to the manufacturer and have it replaced for a new one, let alone repaired :-) - This only applies to whether or not the item is New though :-).
Hope this info helps

Featherlite model 3M-852H

see this instructions:God bless you
Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.

  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    Little Green pro heat is leaking from bottom with very little suction. I just purchased it.

    Try the following suggestions for the leaking issue:

    - Check to see if the black or white "duck bill" gasket is misassembled or missing from the collection tank; ensure the gasket will open where the flat flaps meet and then reinstall it. The duck bill should be inserted into the curved side of the collection tank.
    - Check to see if the solution tank/cap insert is leaking.
    Note: When the solution tank is filled and turned right side up, the straw on the insert may fill with water/solution causing the tank to leak for a couple of seconds. This leaking should subside after the straw empties out.
    - Check for proper placement of the o-ring on the cap insert. The o-ring should be between the bottle and the insert piece (part with the "straw").
    Try the following for the suction issue.
    - Remove the Collection tank and locate the circular motor duct on the base of the machine. Turn the machine on and feel for suction at this location. If you feel suction proceed as follows:
    - Remove the gasket from the bottom of the Collection Tank. Ensure that this gasket is open (not sealed shut) at the top of the gasket where the flaps meet. If the end is not open, simply squeeze the end to open it. The “duck bill” shaped portion of this gasket should align with the rounded side of the Collection Tank.
    - Check to make sure there are no cracks in the flexible vacuum hose or in the tool you are using.
    - Make sure the collection tank latch is locked down securely.
    - Check for suction at the end of the hose with the attachment off by suctioning water out of the sink or a cup. If there is low/poor suction, check the hose for clogs by raising the hose handle above the unit to allow the water to go into the collection tank.
    The issues may be related as you can see some of the suggestions are similar.

    Do you put water in the big compartment under the solution compartment when wet washing your floor

    You put water and Hoover Cleaning Solution into the top tank. Push down on the release button at the top of the tank just below and in front of the handle. The cap is also your measuring cup. Fill it with the Hoover Cleaner Concentrate. Pour that into the tank and fill it to the fill line with warm water.
    The dirty water will be extracted into the bottom tank.

    Leaking tank

    (1) Does water or chemical leak from the tank when filled, but before it is installed? If not, then the tank is OK.
    (2) If the tank is not properly aligned to the lower handle when assembled and latched, the black rubber seals on the handle will not seal to the tank. You may wish to look at this. Also, make sure both round black rubber seals are present on the flat mount where the tank valves will sit.

    I have misplaced the directions for the Bissell powersteamer powerbrush. I need the directions for filling the u tank etc.

    Release the handle and lay the machine handle
    back to access the Tank.
    2. Remove the Tank from the base of the machine by
    lifting the Tank carry Handle.
    3. Carry like a bucket to the sink. Rotate the Handle
    forward to unlatch the lid. Lift off and set the lid aside.
    4. Fill up the Bladder with clean hot tap water.
    *Do not boil or microwave water as it can
    destroy the Bladder.
    Replace the top of the Tank by matching the lid
    and tank edges. Handle must be in the forward
    position in order to replace lid. Rotate the handle
    to the carrying position to latch the lid.
    Note: Remember to secure the lid and test to
    make sure it is secure before picking up the Tank.
    Place tank into machine base, seating firmly in place.
    Rotate tank handle back into latched position. Bring
    machine handle back into upright position.

    Lift the formula Tank up and out of the machine base.
    2. To fill the Formula Tank, first unscrew the Cap
    and Insert. Always use genuine BISSELL formulas
    to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your
    machine. Fill formula up to the line and replace the
    Cap and Insert. Place Formula Tank back into the
    base of machine, making sure it is seated securely.
    Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning
    of red gromment and straw.
