    Mine does the same thing, I have checked everything I can think of. Very aggravating, it's not that old, now water leaks and suction is very poor.

    The water does leak onto the floor creating more of a mess. I took it apart to find a rubber gasket that needs to be replaced but cannot find a replacement part. Im assuming that is the problem but after reading all these statements, im not so sure anymore. I understand they stopped making these cleaners.

    I have a eureka alantis 2590 and soon after it began to leak then it totally emptied the solution and water almost as fast as I could put it in and then no ssuction to extract the mess. I have called Eureka but since my warranty is up there is nothing they will do. So For almost a year I have been stuck with a useless extractor.Now I rent a shampooer.

I have an Eureka Atlantis Deep Steam Extractor and it does the same thing. It's not new but it hasn't been used much. The only thing the booksays is to put the tank in until it snaps into place. (Like we didn'ttry that.) Apparently it's a bad design. The seal on mine looks fine.

If I was doing the floor I'd just keep going but I'm trying to do my couches and I don't need a huge puddle on the floor.

Someone told me since I didnt have a filter for my 2595a,that I could cut a rectangle shape and put lots of holes in it and it would work.question:could this be the reason my dirty tank is bone dry? lol

I'm surprised that you think a cost cutting bodge up job would do the trick!
You will be lucky if it hasn't damaged the vacuum!
See your dealer and get a filter for the job. It will be cheaper than paying out for the repairs for a new cleaner.

Where can i get the shampoo? Can i find the owners manual online?

you should be able to get the shampoo at wal-mart and any place else they sell the steam cleaners. You do not have to use the eureka shampoo for this unit, however, it is more recommended.

I mean you can use the hoover, and dirt devil shampoo if you can find that, or something generic. Because the machine is mixing the soap for you with the water, anything will work.

As for the owners manual, you can get it here.

Don't know how to take dirty water canister out

The dirty water container just lifts out, but it can be very stubborn sometimes. You might have to wiggle it a little to loosen, then pull straight up (perpendicular to the floor). Hope this helps!

Water leaking

The water tanks on this unit have had a very bad history of leaks. Most of the repair people had never heard of this unit, but one did, and had a spare set of tanks. If the unit is still under warranty, it is worth your while to get a replacement unit. Call Eureka, and ask them how to get a replacement unit, especially if you are having more than one issue with the unit (such as leaking, no heat, broken upholstery nozzle, etc.). I had success in sending back the serial number plate and a detailed list of my problems. They sent me a new unit, and I was able to get at least one unit working properly. Some repair men may be able to fix leaks in the seals on the tank. Hold the tank up and if it leaks, well you got your problem! Eureka will not solve your problem, I've discovered they like to let their service depots handle their junk. Most service depots can give you a solution if they are worth their salt. If the service depot can still get tanks, go that direction. If no replacement tanks are available, call Eureka for a whole unit.

Put water in the tank to the fill line. Turn on the unit, and press the spray as you need it. This is a silly question, and should be taken off the board.

Eureka Atlantis Rug shampooer wont **** up the water, how can I fix it. Thanks Dennee

make sure that the two slide-tabs on the front of the machine are all the way down so that they can hold the front see-through cover down and create suction at the front. I did the same thing. you can tell when they get moved while cleaning because you will hear a muffled pop like something just got sucked into the vacuum. It is just the sound of suction being broken.
