Check your toilet tank. Turn off the water going to the tank and see if the pump stops working. If not then the pump is recycling water through the water line.

How do I fix my carpet cleaner


It is not an easy project. It could be several issues.
1) Heater clogged up.
2) Solenoid valve(s) not working.
3) Pump not pumping.

Here is one thing you can try. Fill the bladder with hot tap water. Try spraying form the hose only. (Do not attach any of the attachments to it. Just spray directly from the hose.) It may take a minute or so but many times it can prime itself and start working after doing this.

If it is any of the problems above this will not fix it.

Shop vac is not pumping out water just fills the canister


The question makes perfect sense assuming we are talking about the ShopVacPumpVac. These devices are, essentially, a combination shop vac and sump pump. For those answering the question, you can see literature on these vacuum/sumps here: https://www.shopvac.com/includes/streamPDF.asp?loc=pdf&id=Shop-Vac-Pump-It-Out .

When I have experienced the loss of drainage, I have found a couple obvious problems and solutions.

First, make sure that the garden/discharge hose is not kinked at any point along the line from the vacuum to the outside. If kinked, the line will not drain.

Second, the baffle can become blocked or clogged. Take the following steps to determine if your baffle is clogged and to clear the clog:

1. Turn off and unplug the vacuum.
2. Unclip the two lid clips.
3. Lift the lid of the vacuum. When properly set up, the baffle hangs below the filter housing on an opaque hose about 1 foot in length.
4. Grasp that hose and pull firmly downward. Once removed, I take that hose and the attached baffle to an outside garden hose.
5. Pull the baffle off the opaque hose.
6. Spray water from your garden hose through the opaque hose to make sure it is clear.
7. Spray the baffle clear.
8. Lightly tap the port of the baffle, where the opaque hose has been inserted. Most of my clogs have been the result of hair balls (or worse) at this point. Just tap any blockage out and rinse.

Third, reattach the baffle to the opaque hose. Reattach the opaque hose and baffle to the motor under the filter housing. Set the vacuum top on the canister. Click the locking clamps closed.

If this doesn't result in clearing the clog and allowing it to drain, then you are in the exact spot I am right now. If I figure out this new problem, I will update further. But I have cleared this kind of clog maybe five times in the six months I've been using this new Shop Vac Sump Vac

Deliming

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE

Type of Water Cleaning Frequency

Soft water every 80 brew cycles, Hard water every 40 brew cycles

Your espresso maker may be delimed using one quart of white household vinegar. Clean the water tank first, following steps l-5:

1. Make sure the steam control knob is in the center off position and that the plug is disconnected from the electrical outlet.

2. If the machine is cool and the pressure has been released, remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of undiluted white household vinegar into the water tank.

3. Screw on the pressure cap and allow machine to sit overnight with the vinegar solution in the water tank.

4. Remove pressure cap and discard vinegar through the top opening of the espresso maker.

5. Rinse the water tank thoroughly with tap water, repeating this step twice.

To wash internal parts:

Make sure you clean the inside of the water tank first. Remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of fresh white household vinegar into the water tank. Screw the pressure cap back on top of the water tank. Make sure the cap is on tight. Insert the filter holder into the brew head and place the glass decanter with lid on the drip tray. Plug the machine into the electrical outlet and turn the power switch on. An indicator light on the power switch will tell you the machine is on. Place a cup with cold water under the steam nozzle. When vinegar begins to flow into the decanter, insert the nozzle into the water and open the steam nozzle slowly by turning the steam control knob downward. After a few seconds, close the steam nozzle by turning the knob back up to center. This will clean any residue left in the nozzle from frothing milk. When all the vinegar has been pumped into the decanter and the flow has stopped, turn the power switch to the center off position and allow the machine to cool. Repeat steps 1-7 twice using only tap water to rinse any remaining traces of vinegar out of the machine.

Decanter cleaning

1. Pour warm white vinegar in the decanter and let soak for 20 minutes.

2. Discard the vinegar, Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a

soft cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners.

Sprayer not functioning


You can disassemble the unit and check to see if the pump motor has seized.

the motor has a black, red and green wire attached, is encased in a plastic housing, and is right next to the vacuum assembly. Don't cut the line attached to the plastic housing, you don't need to and it can be a pain to reattach later. just slide the whole white housing up towards the black vacuum assembly, and undo the wire leads attached to the motor, they just pull off (make sure it's not plugged in) making sure to note which wire attaches to which lead... i marked each lead with a colored marker to be sure.

Use a pair of pliers to turn the drive shaft if it has seized, and be sure not to lose the small rubber o-ring that sits around the shaft. Lubricate at the base where the drive shaft meets the motor with just a drop of 3-in-1 electric motor oil and then reassemble the housing, attach the leads, seat the motor back into the seating (make sure the bottom nozzle goes into the green water feed coupler!) and reassemble the case.

worked like a cham for me and i saved $10

worked well for me, if it still doesn't work you could buy a new pump and install it. they go for around $10 on ebay and amazon.com

I pumped my steam mop to get started as I always do. I heard a loud pop and now it won't produce steam and leaks water on the floor.


Hi,

Here is a tip that I wrote about the Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop and why it maynot be getting steam to the head...

Vax carpet washer deluxe leaks from bottom of water tank, somewhere between coming out of the tank and going into the jet to squirt on the floor. pissing me off - any help would be great!


This is a common problem known by repairers. What happens is residue gets stuck in the seals. The next time you use the machine and press the trigger the seals stay open and water leaks continually. It was suggested that maybe after you finish using the machine you do a whole tank of plain water to rinse it out but I haven't had any luck with that. I am stuck with a machine that doesn't work.

Won't spray water and cleaner from the machine


Ensure you have water in tank and solution (or water in solution tank). When you start the vacuum up, the pump starts to prime itself. If you have air in the system, it takes a little longer to prime. Allow the vacuum to run for 1 minute before attempting to pull the trigger. Then pull the trigger.

If this doesn't work, you'll need to open the unit up and check the hoses for any clogs, and next test the pump to see if it is functioning.

Bissell 9200 upright carpet cleaner does not spray water. Could it be the pump or solenoid, or both?


It could be the pump. You can open it up and see if the pump is working by taking the pump input tube and inserting it into a bowl of water. Pull the trigger and see if water is leaving at the pump output.

However, ensure you have the simpler things covered first:

I have a Saeco Armonia Espresso Machine. The water pump was running when the tank ran out of water and when I refilled the tank, it wouldn't start again. I unpugged it and turned everything off overnight....


Common on Armonia...
There is no water in the system, so the pump is pumping air!!
you have to push on the usual button but make sure the hot water button (for tea for ex) on the right side (same as steam opening valve) of the machine is open. This will allow the water to re-flow through the system. Once water is coming out again, close hose, and stop water button. Once hose is closed, and you repush the water button, it will flow again through the coffee hole.
Voila
