Did you ever get a solution? I just bought it today, and am having the same problem. I also sent an email to Libman.

    I just had the same problem with mine, too, but just figured it out. when you put the container back in with the cleaning solution in it you have to push it down in there hard. mine wasn't spraying because it turned out it wasn't pushed in far enough. hope that solves the problem for you guys, too, if you haven't already given up and thrown them out! ;o)

Low power from steam mop


Try to be a little more vague! Model? Age of steamer? Rate of use?...Try a couple of drops of vinegar in with the water you use to fill your steam mop. The heating element that heats the water is probably oxidized, especially if you use tap water to fill it. You should only use distilled water in these mops. Some lower end steam mops have a handle that compresses, as you push the mop forward, which essentially makes the mop steam more, the more you "pump" the handle. Hope this helps!

My bissell spot lifter model 1716 won't spray water at all, how do i fix this?


ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

The vaccaume motor won't work on my brand new steam vac by Shark


If this is new and returnable then I recommend an exchange. If not possible check to see if the vacuum has an internal fuse on this model. If not, use a voltage tester and test power to and from power switch and to the motor itself.

Rubbermaid reveal mop won't spray


I know this question is a little old... but I had the same problem and I figured it out! Unscrew the red top to the bottle. Under the top there is a gasket (leave that alone) and a little clear plastic plug blocking an air hole. Pull the little plug out and put it back in the holder. (Be careful, liquid will come out of the hole). This allows for air and cleaner to flow through.. so viola! It's spraying! I was so mad when it didn't work (brand new). I wish it had come with this little tip on the packaging! Have fun! :)

I have a bissel pro heat 2x and it wont spray


I love these and have 2 of them! The warrantees are usually good and it is your pump if both the hand held and carpet positions won't spray water. Both the soap tank and water resevoir need to have at the very least water in both for the unit to work. Yes... You can use just hot water for light cleaning in both. The pump controls both the spraying water and suction. Last, if one or the other won't spray, the unit can have residue blockage. The passages are narrow, check to see if they are clean. Last test. Turn it on, release the handle. At the base of the neck there will be an oval shaped opening. With the handle on the floor as if filling the unit with water...put either your hand or a paper plate over the hole to see if there is suction. If the pump is good, you will feel a lot of suction against your hand or the flat surface of the plate.

Shark stopped steaming how to fix this


It may be mineral deposits. Empty reservoir of water, add 1/2 cup of CLR. Let sit 1 hour. Take mop outside with a mop head on but not the cloth padding. Plug it in and start pumping the handle to prime it. I used cardboard to do this on to cushion the mop and soak up moisture. Keep pumping handle until the mineral deposits clear and full steam is coming out. When I was done, I unplugged the mop, dumped out remaining CLR, and rinsed out mop reservoir with water. Please add fresh water, plug in and steam out rest of CLR out of tube leading to mop head. Otherwise your mop will still issue out CLR steam. As always, be careful to unplug and let the unit cool down before adding or removing CLR, water or mop head. Steam can cause serious burns.
