How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

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

Inspect the vacuum hose for any small holes, kinks, or cracks. Any cracks or holes will decrease the amount of suction in the hose and will not allow the carpet extractor to properly remove liquid from the floor. The hose will need to be replaced if there is damage.
Check the Clean Water Tank to see if it is empty or low on water or solution. If it is, remove the tank and fill with water or solution. You may need to press and release the spray trigger for 10-12 seconds to clear any air from the tube. Lift Clean Water Tank up and set back into unit.
With proper care and maintenance, the Rug Doctor Pro is designed to last a lifetime.
Loose connections will cause your vacuum cleaner to lose suction. Make sure that the dust container, the hose, the tube and the brush are all attached properly. If the problem continues, your vacuum cleaner might have a technical problem. If you suspect this to be the case, contact an authorised service agent.
Check for a plugged hose:

Plugged vacuum hoses are sometimes the reason for a loss in suction. Hoses can get clogged with hair, dust bunnies, string, or anything else that can`t pass through the other end of the hose. Airways inside the machine should be looked at as well. Wherever there is an air passage, check it.

Check that the vacuum cleaner is plugged into a working power outlet and that fuses and breakers don`t need resetting. An activated thermal cut-out due to a blockage is the next most likely cause of the problem. Check for blockages in the hose and filters, and remove any obstructions that you find.
Press and hold the red spray button on the handle and slowly start pulling the Rug Doctor Pro machine backwards. 3. Continue slowly pulling the machine backwards – pressing the red spray button all the time – and making a steady straight run down the carpet.
You shouldn`t need to make more than two passes with cleaning solution (especially if you pre-treated stains) when deep cleaning your carpet. Make additional passes without spray button pressed. The Rug Doctor deep cleaner has a powerful motor that will suck up and extract water from your carpet.
The Rug Doctor Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum is a commercial grade wet/dry vac with professional-grade suction to tackle dirt, debris, spills and floods. This machine is ideal for home improvement projects inside and out.
It takes around two to four hours for carpets to dry after a Rug Doctor clean. However, this depends on ventilation to the room, whether the room is unheated and the outside temperature. The machine vacuums up about 80% of the water it dispenses on to the carpet.
A late return charge shall apply for equipment returned after specified period from time rented. Late return charges may be up to one day`s full rental charge for each partial to full day period for which the machine is overdue.
Avoid Over-Wetting

Rug Doctor Carpet Machines are designed for one pass only. If over-wetting occurs, release the red spray button for vacuum only passes.
