If it is spraying ok and the brushes are turning, then maybe the cleaner isn't strong enough for the typa of stain you are trying to clean.

Red devil steam mop no steam coming out


Add CLR to water tank. Let it sit for an hr to overnight unplugged. Plug back in, turn on steam to medium setting and wait about 20 minutes. Mine started to steam and I let it steam for 5 min or so. Empty out CLR, add only "DISTILLED WATER" and clean away. Good luck.

How can i fix my H20 mop x5 steam cleaner


see this causes, and use the common sense God bless you
nspect your steam cleaner's belts for loss or damage. Damaged belts can cause the brushes to stop rolling or the spray mechanism to stop functioning. To fix a damaged pump or brush belt, first unplug the steam cleaner. Refer to the user's manual to determine the specific location of each belt. Order a new belt directly from the manufacturer's website, or from a local home improvement store, if necessary.

I need operating manual for vapor white wing steamer


This is from an Amazon review. I have misplaced my manual and was searching for a pdf file without any luck. I think I have it under control if I only knew where to put my distilled water.Basic operation of the WhiteWing is:

1. Fill the tank with distilled water
2. Attach the hose to the steamer.
3. Attach the extension handles and attachment you want.(Be sure to watch the video and read the instruction booklet. Some of the attachments have specific uses and setup instructions)
4. Lock the finger trigger.
5. Plug it in.
6. Turn it on.
7. Wait 20 min. or until the pressure gauge reads between 3.5-4.5.
8. Get ready to rock - press the steam release button, unlock the finger trigger and start steaming.

For many jobs such as countertops, shower stalls, stovetops, you will need to follow behind the steam, wiping with a cloth to remove the released dirt from the surface. Some jobs may require you to start with a non-toxic cleaner or grease remover such as Orange Clean or Method brand cleaners. Remember, you'll be breathing in vaporized cleaner. So be sure it's something non-toxic and non-irritating. I prefer the Method brand cleaners.

No suction or spray - Eureka Atlantis Steam Cleaner


I got the machine working. I think because it hadn't been used for awhile that the seals were dried out. I wet them and let it sit for awhile and then I could push the containers all the way in and seated them properly. Then it started working no problem and I got to clean my carpets.

Does it matter what kind of cleaner I use on the Deep Cleaner Model F5821


Yes it does matter which cleaning solution that you use in your steam cleaner. If you use the wrong cleaning solution it may cause problems with the cleaning solution dispensary system. Different steam cleaners use different cleaning solutions. You should always use the steam cleaner solution for your specific cleaner. I have learned this the hard (and expensive) way.

Hard to recommend this but it will work in a pinch. You can use a small amount of liquid laundry detergent diluted with hot water (about 2 table spoons to a gallon) as a stand in for the real deal. DO NOT put the laundry soap solution into the cleaning solution reservoir (the wax content will clog the soap dispensary system). Lightly apply to the area to be shampooed (do not soak). I have used a plastic coffee can with holes poked in the lid like a watering can to apply the soap solution. Use the shampooer to do the scrubbing and remove soapy water from the shampooed area. Fill your soap reservoir with clean hot water. The laundry soap does most of its job during the rinse. Go over the shampooed area with the shampooer moderately soaking the shampooed area to with the hot rinse water. Remove as much of the rinse water as possible. Liquid laundry soap has a high wax content (makes your cloths soft) and if it is not rinsed thoroughly after it is dry the remaining wax will attract dirt faster than the surrounding areas. Other than that it works for a good stand in for the proper detergent in a pinch. As a bonus it smells great.

From what I understand as unorthodox as it is, it works well in small doses, and I don't believe that it causes any damage to the other parts of the steam cleaner as steam cleaners survive drawing up worse things into them than laundry soap.

I hope that you find this helpful

Good Luck!

Which is the best caprpet steam cleaner mid priced?


I would recommend the Hoover brand. The Bissell's are very problematic, they have belts that break and issues with the heating elements. Hoover Steam Cleaners can be repaired and are simple to use. The price range is generally $180 - $300

Trying to find instructions


I have that cleaner also (bought used for $10) and do not have a manual. I found a manual for F5914-900 at the Hoover site that seems to be similar. Get it at
