To test the cap on the solution container, fill the solution container with water and turn it so the cap is down. Set the solution container in a sink and see if water runs out. If the container leaks, tilt the container over so you can see the cap and find where water is coming from. If the cap is leaking, replace the cap.

If the solution container does not leak in the sink, a hose must be cracked or disconnected. To get the carpet cleaner repaired, you can take it to a Sears Service Center. You can go to Home Services to find the nearest location.

A:

Ron, if you have some tools and are mechanically inclined, you can locate and repair a leaking hose. I suggest you go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the model of the carpet cleaner as 47385920400. Look on the first page of the parts diagram and you can see what you might need to remove to access the hoses. Items 27 and 28 are the hoses that have water in them all the time. If you have questions, reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.

Jimmy, I am taking it apart from step one to thirteen. I am stuck on 13, lower handle rear half. Do I need to take the wheel assemblies apart, etc. to get this off? Ron

A:

Ron, I am not familiar with the 13 steps to disassemble. You should not have to remove the wheels to remove the handle. The bolts that hold the handle in place go through from the front and have nuts on the back. When you remove the bolts and nuts, the handle should lift up and off.

Jimmy, I have it loose at the top but not at the bottom. I cannot find any more screws. I am baffled by this sucker. Is there anyone in your group who has taken this back piece off that might know the secret to success?

A:

Ron, go to the top of this page and click "manuals". Enter the model of the carpet cleaner and look in the installation section of the owners manual. The instructions for installing the handle are there with illustrations. Seeing how the handle is installed should show you how to remove it.

A:

Jimmy, Thanks for your reply. Item 13 in the parts list is Lower handle rear half. It is the rear half I am having trouble with. I have gone through 12 steps to get to this point but while the rear half is loose at the top it doesn't want to come loose at the bottom. I cannot find a screw or whatever might be holding it. THat's why I thought there might be someone in your group who had taken one off. Thanks, Ron

Ron, I have been talking to 2 other people in our group since we started. Did you test the solution tank to be sure it is not leaking? Item 13 has 2 screws that are recessed 3-4 inches in item 13 that attach item 13 to item 29. Be sure you look closely at items 24, 25, and 43 before taking everything apart. These items seal the solution tank to the docking port. I wish we had an instruction sheet for this, but we don't.
