Water won't spay out of the nozzels under front plastic
Water will not spay out of the nozzels in front But it does come out underneth the machine. I cleaned it all up and blew air at the nozzels. Are there any suggestions. I can't figure out how to take the cover off to see if the tube came off.
Thanks in advance

Take the 4 screws that hold the hood out and remove the hood. Hook up the hand tool line and watch for where the water comes out. It is more than likely the tool valve has failed. This is the part here: http://vacuummedic.com/product.php?id=231
there should be three screws on this unit to remove the clear plastic hood.
first, remove the dirty water container, there will be one screw there to remove. It should be rather long.
next turn the machine over, there will be 2 more screws under the corners of the front of the machine (you can see the threads through the plastic on the top) remove the two screws.
Now comes the tricky part. Turn the machine back over so that its the right side up again, you will want to pull away from the machine and up, kind of like you are going to bend the plastic up. Once you have that done the entire cover will come off.
It sounds like the tubing that is suppose to be hooked to two spray nozzles has come loose. You will have to take that dirt tank off, then turn the machine upside down and take the two screws out that hold the hood on from the bottom by the brushes, and then turn the machine back upright and take the screw from the top out. You should be able now to take the hood off and see all the tubing exposed. There is only one tube that goes to the spaying part in the front and see if it needs to be pushed back onto its' barbed fitting. Put that back on and put the hood back together. That should get you going.
There is a collar on the power nozzel elbow where the elbow goes to the nozzel. You need to pry it off with a screw driver. Don't worry about it breaking. It just snaps off and on. This will make it easier to get the top aligned. Make sure that the front of the cover is touching the rubber bumper and lay the cover down to the back side of the nozzel. You will have to lean the elbow up when you are trying to get the cover down in place. You'll see what I mean when doing this. When you replace the screws, you'll have one that is shorter than the rest. The short screw goes in the hole on the front side of the nozzel on the part that the motor is not on. Hope this helps.
The cleaner goes into the small bottom at the very rear of the machine. It is uses full strenght (don't add any water to it). You add clean water into the bottom clear plastic section on the front of the machine. The clean water bladder is soft plastic and it is filled from the top. When you start using the machine, the dirty water will get suctioned into the section surrounding this bladder. The machine will stop working when either the bladder is empty or the dirty water section is full. Remove the entire plastic section to dump out the dirty water.
It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged.
Some people say the heating unit in the handle plugs up, particularly if you put soap in the water tank. I haven't dealt with this, but it should be easy to open the handle and bypass the heating unit.
