Need to get water out of my carpet

Hi, This is my first time using this cleaner. I held down the nozzle to squirt the cleaning solution, then let up on it to go back and pull out the water. No water is coming up.

There is a lever to switch from "clean" to "tools". On the tools setting, it doesn't suck up water.

I have a Delonghi Multi Vac M31 and have never used the wet part...I would like to clean my carpet using the wet vacuum...can you please tell me how I can do this? Many thanks

A good place to start is the owner's manual. If you don't have one, you can google the make and model of your multi-vac to get another copy.

Most wet-vacs work off the same principle. Pre-vacuum the carpet to make sure there is not normal surface dirt and dust. Next Squirt on hot soapy water, scrub it in - then suck up the dirt and collect the dirty water.

So after vacuuming the area to be wet-vacuumed and you are lucky enough to have a separate reservoir on the wet-vac unit - add pre-mixed carpet cleaner into hot tap water (with carpet cleaner mixed into it by the ratios described on the carpet cleaner soap bottle) to the multi-vac water reservoir (from a quick look, the Delonghi doesn't have one) . With the settings for wet vac (per the owners manual), squeeze the trigger for applying the carpet cleaner. Typically, you will go slower than normal vacuuming. Give it a chance to soak in and dissolve/lift the grim and dirt. Come back slowly to pull the dirty water out of the carpet.

There are multi-wet vacs (like the M31) that don't have a reservoir for the carpet cleaner. In that case, you need to pre-mix a couple of gallons of carpet clean in a separate container or bucket. Next spray or sprinkle carpet cleaner onto/into the carpet. Try to scrub the cleaner into the carpet to really get at the dirt and lift it. Next is to vacuum up the wet stuff.

Some carpet cleaners do not contain an anti-foaming agent. I recommend you either add an anti-foaming agent or buy a carpet clean product that already contains it - otherwise, it tends to be a big mess that takes a lot more time.

I hope these tips help.

My carpet cleaner is dispensing too much water

Sounds like you need to clean the filters. The recommendation is to clean the filters after each use. Check you User's Guide for locations. Contact Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 if you don't have a Guide or need more answers.

THE STAIR HANDLE WILL NOT SQUIRT WATER AND/CLEANING SOLUTION

The hose or nozzle could be plugged. The hose can be disconnected at the machine end there is a clip on the bottom of the connection. The fluid is dispensed by a pump which could be bad. If you disconnect the hose and put a rag at the opening to catch the fluid, then turn the machine on briefly the fluid should squirt out if the pump is working.
