Why does the power brush turn on even when turned off?


If it is 6 months old, it should be under warranty. Call wherever you purchased the vacuum and ask how they handle warranty claims.

Low power from steam mop


Try to be a little more vague! Model? Age of steamer? Rate of use?...Try a couple of drops of vinegar in with the water you use to fill your steam mop. The heating element that heats the water is probably oxidized, especially if you use tap water to fill it. You should only use distilled water in these mops. Some lower end steam mops have a handle that compresses, as you push the mop forward, which essentially makes the mop steam more, the more you "pump" the handle. Hope this helps!

I have a hoover 5835-900 and it is leaking solution everywhere


You'll have to find out where it's leaking! Its not real hard. I will help you!

1. Fill the clean water tank. Check that the valve on this tank doesn't let water through when not on the machine. If it does this the tank is the problem.
2. Take off the 4-6 phillips screws holding the hood on to the machine. They will be on each corner underneath. Be Gentle! Do not break any of the plastic parts. Remove the hood.
3. Check where the clean water comes to a L valve. This valve is a very common problem. Place the water tank on the machine. DO NOT hold the handle down. Use paper towel to check for wet spots if you can't see where it is leaking. It should be fairly obvious.
4. If the water is coming from the "back" of the machine or the handle pry the cover off the inside of the handle revealing the hoses. The water release valves may be leaking. Be sure to check all hoses for cracks or breaks. Simply find the water.. and trace it back.

90% of the time it is the L valve which looks like this:

Carefully put the machine back together not forgetting anything and test!

Good Luck!!

It is probably clogged with rust or limescale - can happen with steam cleaners. Sadly there's no way around this but to try a limescale remover in distilled water such as Calgon limescale remover. Fill the kettle as normal and give it time to boil up. Then release the steam as you would normally. You may find that the kettle will spurt out deposits of gunk. Sounds like its definately clogged though.

Where do I put the water.


1. 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.
5. 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
Note: Remember to secure the lid and test to make
sure it is secure before picking up the Tank.
6. Place tank into machine base, seating firmly in place.
Rotate tank handle back into latched position. Bring
machine handle back into upright position.

Bissell ProHeat Carpet Steam Cleaner stopped spraying.


The problem was a clogged heating unit which is located in the lower handle. There are two clear hoses going up the inside of the left leg of the lower handle that go to the heater and to the in-line water switch all within the lower handle. I unplugged the metal heating unit water lines and electrical connections (label the connections as you take them apart if you have a hard time remembering things...there were seven connection in all be it water and/or electrical). Removed the heat unit out and then removed the 6 screws holding the heater cover. Inside was a white powdery pasty debris (lime deposit ?) and the water path was clearly blocked in four different places. I cleansed the water trough with a little water and soft toothbrush and several toothpicks then reassembled. If you need new washers go to Orchard or ACE hardware. Take the old rubber washers(they are red) with you for comparison. I didn't need new washers...I just gently cleansed them. I immediately ran clear water through the machine and actually cleaned the carpet with a water rinse only. Will go back and finish the carpet the right way tomorrow. I had only used my machine three times before this happend over a three year period. A friend told me to always rinse it two maybe three times with clear water after using it and before storage. This took me exactly 42 minutes to disassembly and reassemble. Cost savings is several hundred dollars since I have a 5 bdrm house and would need a professional cleaner to do the small dirty traffic lanes all around the house.
