Heater blocked with lime scale. or short valve inside unit handle plunger not reaching valve

Posted on Nov 13, 2007

  • Anonymous Nov 18, 2007

    If this is a new machine try taking of the handle an fit a thin shim to the bottom of the handle plunger not to thick, the handle plunger might not be making full contact with the warter release valve

    If it an older machine take of the flow indicator cap remove the red spinner and clean the little white filter,

    make sure the two spray tips under the machine are clesn,

    If this fails and water comes out of the hose but not the spray tips the problem would lay in the heater being blocked with lime scale,

PS: In a fit of frustrated anger I've removed and destroyed the soap selection switch, use needle nose pliers to adjust the depth of the valve for your desired soap mixture (not an exact science)

This might help, I've had this one torn apart....way too many times, never enough water, limited water, water starts and stops. I've just now discovered that the problem is in the soap selection valve. if the internal valve is pushed too far down into it's seat, it blocks the water flow enough to cut off the limited suction that stupid little pump provides. You should see and immediate, extreme jump in water flow. Good luck

Hoover Spinvac F5915900. Trigger no longer causes a release of soapy water on floor. It doesn't have tension, fairly loose, but still in slots. How do I fix this problem?

The trigger that you pull to release water snaps into plastic pieces inside the handle where it pivots to push on the rod that goes down to push on the regulator that lets the water flow. If the trigger is pulled too hard it can break the plastic it pivots in. If this happens the rod doesn't push hard enough on the regulator to let the water flow. Remove the screw at the top of the handle to remove the handle part holding the trigger to see if this could be causing your problem.

Rubbermaid Reveal mop trigger sticking

I bought 2 rubbermaid reveal spray mops before I figured this out. You'll need a Phillips and flat head screwdriver & a can of WD40. On the compartment that holds the liquid cleaner bottle there are 2 screws and 1 screw on the connector piece to the mop head. Unscrew all three. The one by the mop head came out and the other two stayed in their holes. Then with a flathead screwdriver gently pull the seam along the side apart. You only need 1/2-1 inch of a gap. If you pull it open all the way you'll pop a few other pieces out of place and have to piece them all back together- so gently! Then spray some WD40 in along the exposed spring using the red straw that comes with the can. Close the gap, hold it together and try the trigger a few times. If the trigger is still sticking spray more WD40 in until it frees up. Then screw your screws back in and it's as good as new!

Hi my vax rapide ultra carpet cleaner seems to continually spray without operating the trigger and this makes extraction of the water/ solution difficult.Is this continoues spray normal?

No it should only spray when the trigger is pressed. After spraying you go over the area to suck the water out. The valve on the trigger is faulty. I found this

I had the same problem, after buying a new clean water tank the problem was still there. I decided to see how it works and discovered the little shut off valve that the trigger operates is sticking in the open position. I am now trying to find a new valve.

Trigger on hose attachment not working so water sprays constantly

from your description, the trigger sounds like it is stuck in the release position. this sounds like a very simple repair. The component parts need to be looked at by a service shop

Bissell Pro-heat 12

These are two different problems the first could be a clogged heater soap coagulates in the heater passages and clogs the flow of water to see if this is indeed the problem turn the unit on and try and spray water with the top trigger (floor nozzle) then try to spray at the hand nozzle if you get water at the hand nozzle but not the floor nozzle it is the heater. The hand nozzle water bypasses the heater. Also check the solution or soap tank if you pull it out and there is not red seal on the bottom it may be stuck in the machine and won't create a good seal check to see if it is still in the hole where the tank inserts. As for the unit not turning on that could be a number of issues cord,switch or just over heated. Visit www.stevessewandvac.com for any parts or questions about this machine or any other.

Plugged water line?

The trigger in the handle is clipped into two plastic snaps. When the trigger is pressed, the trigger pivots in these snaps and the pressure is transmitted through a rod connected to the trigger down to a valve located under the water tank. If the machine has been carried by the top handle insead of the carry handle that is incorporated into the water tank, the extra stress on the trigger will break off the snaps and the trigger will not function properly. Take the water tank off the machine and press the trigger. Observe the valve below the tank support and see if the rod is pressing down on it.
You might also check the hoses that come down the handle where they turn at the bottom of the tank. Sometimes they kink there and this will restrict water flow.
If you have been using the wrong shampoo, that is shampoo not designed for hot water extractors, it is possible for it to congeal in the lines and plug them.

Trigger not working

Sounds like you need to replace the handle valve pieces, if they are available, if not then you will have to replace the hose asm. Just take the valve off and see if one of the pieces have a piece broken off. Then with your model number, you can see if that piece is available from someone that has Hoover parts.
