Question about Vacuums
I am able to shampoo but the unit is not extracting the water from the carpet.
I have the same problem with the "blue plug" thing popping up~ so my solution was to cover the outside with a womans nylon (helps trap my dog hair) and than stick the sharp end of a cabob stick through the middle above the blue plug, than break off the excess of the stick.
Works great now!

There's a rotating knob labeled "FLOOR CLEANING" / "TOOLS OR PRETREAT" which controls the diverter flap mentioned in the Nov 13, 2007 response. I found that rotating ours back and forth felt like nothing was connected to it, and while it was supposed to open and close the diverter flap, the flap remained open when I rotated the knob. The flap is visible through the very top of the big clear plastic piece that runs up the front of the machine. I pulled the knob off and found how it was supposed to be connected to control the flap, and with the help of a screwdriver and a lot of patience, I was able to connect the knob correctly, and that fixed the suction problem. It also (somehow) fixed the shampoo sprayer too, which hadn't been working.

Try checking the connection to the attachments. Some times if they arent getting power correctly they will not extract or wont spray solution or what have you.
