Hi,
Water softners often do that and there are many reasons why they may not work...
It would take many pages for me to describe all that could go wrong...
Call someone who is familiar with those to troubleshoot it for you...

Why is the head not getting steam and its making a knocking noise it didnt come with instructions


The knocking noise is actually the water boiling to produce steam.
No different from a pot boiling on the stove. The only difference being the noise is dampened in open environment in the pot, while in the vacuum its a small closed environment with plastic which enhances the noise. There also could some hard water debris within the vacuum chamber which pounces around during the boiling process, such as the same when a water heater becomes old and hasn't been drained. Hard water causes calcium deposits which in turn causes knocking noises in a water heater.

No steam or water even coming out, its just quiet except brushes moving


David, the brushes on the motor may be burned out and the conduction process has been compromised. In short the motor is bound up and won't turn. This can happen if surface debris collect on parts of the motor. Do not turn it on for long and let the unit get warm as it will eventually break down permanently.
If you need a manual, go the company web site and seek that from customer services.

My vax vacuum has started making a high-pitched whining/whisting noise


Ususally this is caused by a forein object has gotten hung in the suction impeller attached to the motor. the noise flucuates due to the housing flexes with the movement of the handle and rod. the housings are usually made of plastic and something very small can easily get stuck in it and stay for a very long time. The vacuum needs disassembled and the forien object removed from the fan housing...
Hope this helps
Sincerely

Forgot what kind of water to use - distilled or other wise can not find manual, can I get one - Model GS7RW Thanks, Susan


hi.

i am assuming it is the GS7RW garment steamer and not actually a vacuum cleaner.

any electrical item with a heating element should be used with distilled or de-ionised water.
if you live in a "hard water" area where the water contains dissolved calcuim salts, these will cause scaling and furring up of the heater element. easiest way to tell is to look inside your kettle. if there are white deposits on the base or heating element, your steamer will get the same deposits and work less effectively.

another option is to use the scented ironing waters available from many supermarkets for use in steam irons. these will not harm your steamer, and will also make your clothes smell nice as they come in a range of scents.

this link does have some instructions that may help.

New Rainbow purchased 3 weeks ago. Went to a friends home which purchased one also and her's is very quite. Mine on Low setting to use as air clearner you can hear it in the next two rooms. Her's you had...


Your new rainbow is still under warranty I believe so explain it to the company and ask for another. I too had a rainbow however I am like your friend in which mine worked very well. The noise is coming from the motor housing or the motor itself. Good Luck

My scooba 5810 won't run


Fill the dirty water tank with hot water and giving the tank a good shake then pour the water out. Continue to do this until the water coming out of the dirty side of the tank is clean.

sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.
I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz.
usually when a vac is brought to europe you must change motor.
