Question about Vacuums
Just stripped VAX rapid carpet cleaner model v-025 down found out the internal plastic water valve keeps sticking in open position causing the water to free flow on the carpet when it should be closed pop the water flow regulator part out of housing and spray wd40 on the plunger side and pump with finger( repeat till it does not stick ) you can do a water test by putting some water in the bottle housing cap on the body of the machine then press the plunger on the regulator the water will flow through the pipe then it will shut off when released, top the housing cap back up with water the regulator should now be in the closed position and holding the water until plunger is pressed back in a gain for the water to flow down the pipe again if this is the case rebuild the machine mine now works perfect.hope this sorts your problem out

This is a common problem known by repairers. What happens is residue gets stuck in the seals. The next time you use the machine and press the trigger the seals stay open and water leaks continually. It was suggested that maybe after you finish using the machine you do a whole tank of plain water to rinse it out but I haven't had any luck with that. I am stuck with a machine that doesn't work.
