SOURCE: blowing air out

Blowing warm air is normal for these machines. The suction problem is probably a result of the lid on the recovery tank not being installed correctly. Take the lid off the tank. If you look at the top/front of the tank, you will notice that there are two "tabs" at the corners. These tabs insert into the lid and hold the front of the lid in place. You then fold the lid down towards the back where there is a latch on the lid that locks the lid in place. It is a very common problem that people don't get the front engaged properly and the suction leaks out there and never gets to the floor. The motor will produce heat as a natural byproduct and is not unusual.

SOURCE: Machine will not **** up the water.

E-mail me for the parts manual (firehead@rogers.com)then do the following
Go to figure 3.1 and clean the filter if necessary. Goto figure 3.8 and make sure pate E is clear. Make sure the part isslides up against when inserted downward is clear. Go to figure 3.11.The slotted holes in the recovery tank lid must be clear. Finally therecovery tank lid must fit snugly and air tight. I hope this works

SOURCE: My Vax rapide is not sucking up water?

I had the same problem. Then I took off the brushbar (it's underneath at the front). It just pops off. Then it worked fine. I guess you only need it for long carpets.

SOURCE: HOOVER SPINSCRUB WONT SUCK UP WATER...BLOWING AIR OUT

ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN

Reverse operation


You probably have a clog in either the dirt inlet down by the brush roll, or the hose itself is clogged.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


If it is blowing air, then it is still clogged up somewhere, you didn't give your model number, but some of these have removable covers on each side and on the back. Also make sure that all covers are back on securely.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


Dysons aren't supposed to clog up, but they do. There a number of ports you can open to see if there are clogs in any of them. Usually a clog is why it will blow air and debris out instead of sucking. You just need to find it.

SteamVac Supreme Vacuum Problem:


Does this have the slot in front of the dirty water tank for the hose? If it does and the hose isn't installed, there is a block that you put in when the hose isn't being used. If not there, then it will blow air and won't suck up.
