No Suction

The float may be jammed

Inside the tank is a float that protects the motor during wet pick up. It looks like a ping pong ball in a cage. This may be jammed in the up position and will shut off the motor suction. Unclip the lid of the tank and free up the float it, may be damp and sticky. Wash the assembly and leave to dry. Always make sure the cleaner is dried out following wet pick up before using to pick up dry. This will help stop the float from sticking shut.

Check the filters are clean

There are 2 filters on the tank cleaner. The first is inside the tank. Unclip the lid and lift it off. The filter looks live a sock pulled over the float in the top of the lid. Take it off and dust out or wash in warm water.

The other filter is fitted on the outside of the lid, where the air escapes. Dust it out or wash with warm water. Please make sure all filters are dry before re fitting.
