It sounds like a partial clog. You can use baking soda and vinegar to free it up. Here is a web blog that explains the process, and what to do if that doesn't work:

The flow of water and spinning of the blades should force the shredded foodstuff down the drain, unless something is obstructing it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Is there a trigger handle to turn off and on


no betty, stupid bit of kit imo, no operating switch, just on/off at the switch, which heats the water up. i measured 500ml of water heated using my kettle, put the top on, switched on, and waited. first time the steam didn't come out of the nozzle, so i removed the end and cleaned the nozzle with water, blew down the end from the big end, and replaced it, steam came out. big grumble though, the steam coming out is not that warm, don't advise you to, but i directed against my fingers, it's only hot at the exit of the pointing bit, used it to try and clean floor tiles and grout, complete waste of time. i wouldn't advise anyone to buy one.

I can get the acorn nut off the separator but cannot get the separator off the vacuum. Can I pryn it off, or will I break it?


It's probably stuck in place by dried-on fine dirt...if the nut has been removed,don't pry it, as it's made from light material to enable the high RPMs. Lightly spray soapy water around the edge, WHILE HOLDING IT WITH THE SEPARATOR DOWN so that the water won't run into the motor. Once the dried dirt's wet, it should be removable with a gentle twist or tap. Then clean the separator with a brush and soapy water and wipe down the bowl and canister, and dry it all with a soft cloth.

Have a Rainbow SE passed down from my Mom who bought it used.Never any trouble, haven't used it for couple of months. When I turn it on now , the motor hums, but doesn't suction. Was afraid to keep it...


Steps to take before assuming the worst:

1. Make sure the latches on either side are locked.
2. You may have it too full of water. You should only fill it no more than 1/4" below the bulb in the center of the water container.
3. Make sure the Hepa filter is in good shape. If there is no air getting through it, than that may be the problem. If the filter is clogged, DO NOT run the vacuum! It will burn the motor up.

No water coming out


On my LGM, the motor that drives the soap pump had siezed. I disassembled down to the pump and separated the motor from the pump. With pliers, forced the motor shaft to turn and sprayed lubricant (lithium grease) onto motor's front and rear bearings.
Heater box is a little tricky to remove. Remove 4 screws to remove top plate. Lift heater out and remove insulator. Remove two screws from inside box to remove heater box bottom.

Hoover SteamVac Dual V Carpet Cleaner just hums when I turn it on


if the motor doesn't run sounds like you either have a bad motor or your motor armature might have gotten wet and created a dead spot.if you have any contact cleaner spray a little on the armature then turn the motor by hand make sure its uuplugged first if you can turn the motor then plug it in and try to start it

My Bissell Little Green won't spray the solution. The suction seems to be working fine and the lines are all connected as they should be. What's up and how can I fix it?


I also had the same problem as you.
Try suctioning up a full tank of hot tap water into the collection tank to soften/release a possible kink in the tubing inside of the vacuum hose that carries solution out to the spray tip.
I did this a couple of times and it worked. This info I found on the Bissell website.
Good Luck!

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
