Question about Vacuums
I borrowed this unit from a friend and cleaned it to familiarize myself with it and downloaded the manual.
I filled the bladder filled and the soap tank. I started the unit and when I push the handle trigger no solution comes out. could there be a clog somewhere?
I checked the flow meter screen it was very clean like it never saw any solution.
I also did what you suggested and removed the inspection door for the pump belt and it was ok however when I started the unit with the inspection off to see if I could see fluid travel down the tube, I confirmed it did in fact show fluid moving. It appears the pump is working, any other thoughts?
Hard to determine for sure without the model number. Does water squirt out of the hose? If it does then the heater in the heater in the handle may be clogged, if you model has this. Is the top cover and bottom together at the back of the cleaner, if not then water can't flow from the tank, and is the gasket on the valve on the bottom of the tank? Other wise it could be a bad pump.
