How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

If you notice that your Hoover shampooer or carpet cleaner doesn`t spray water or the brush roll doesn`t spin, then typically you need to replace your turbine assembly.
Your Vax carpet cleaner may not be picking up water because the machine has picked up too much grime, and has become blocked up. Check around the head of the carpet cleaner for anything obvious that might make the suction on the Vax weaker, or look for clumps of hair that could be caught in the bristles.
Should the brush not rotate freely there may be debris tangled around the ends of the brush, carefully remove any obstructions or replace the brush with a new one. We recommend that you fit a new belt and brush once per year to keep your Reactive vacuum working efficiently.
If you still have reduced or no spray it might mean the pump has lost its prime. To fix this, turn the power off and then back on. Wait for one minute, then depress the trigger.

Hoover max extract 77 water tank leaking – Hoover F5505 SteamVac Spot Vacuum
ANSWER : Remove the little black plastic plug on the bottom of tank (has a metal spring around it), that is where it is leaking. Wrap Teflon (pipe tape) around it and the spring. Replace black plug. Not a permanent fix, but can help if you are on a bind. It worked for me.

I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn’t work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad “new” starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No
ANSWER : It is not likely that you had 4 bad starters.I assume you have more modern lights in it too(not 30 yrs old).Here is a link to Sylvania.It may be just that it requires certain something(who knows what)that only Sylvania has.It seems strange because they are all basically the same and a generic one seems like it would work.I also googled flourescent light starters and under one that talked about operation,it did refer to some older models.But like I said,it probably has newer lights so who knows what the heck.Well,here you go.You may also just want to call Sylvania and ask where you can find a replacement instead of paying $5 to ship $2 worth of parts.

My Kirby G3 paint attachment isn’t spraying the paint. I have everything hooked up according to the manual, and it sprays a continuous stream of air, but isn’t sucking up the paint to spray. Sometimes I can get short spurt when I point the unit directly down, but i can’t get a continuous spray.
ANSWER : Mcdevito75 here, Sounds like it”s cogged with paint, the paint is not being sucked up into the Spray gun itself, the air flows thru thr spray gun thru the trigger assembly. Follow the makers cleaning of the spray section of the spray gun. Try running paint thinner thru the spray system. Hpope this helps.

I have 2 bissell pro x2’s that are now both not spraying water
ANSWER : Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems — water.and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the.main machine.

As others have suggested, I removed the water.reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the.rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but.firmly removed the two red nozzles.

Elsewhere I have read.suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that.if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and.it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice.collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized.residue from the cleaning solution).

There was also a bit of.blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you.can blow through both of them with little resistance.

Reassemble:.Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip.back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks.and power it up.

In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!! d

My carpet cleaner will not spray. Maybe a little thru the tool but not enough pressure to SPRAY

p.s. Make sure you do give it about a minute after you turn it on before you try spraying. If the pump is not allowed sufficient time to prime, you may not get proper flow.
