This is a brand new unit in-spite of the year it was manufactured. It was not
used until I received it. Use the factory manual and followed all the set up
and cleaning instructions. First 10 minutes of use it worked as designed. I
noticed a trail of water behind the unit as I was drawing the machine backwards
to dry. I lifted the unit and without the trigger to dispense the water was not
engaged, the water was continually being dispensed. Took the handle apart and
removed the micro switch that the trigger engages when pulled and it still
dispensed the clean water. Looked at the pump in the lower part of the handle
and has no mechanical issues that I can see. All the blogs and threads I have
seen on line are stating a problem with no dispensing of water or no suction on
the dry cycle or the brushes won't spin. All those items function on this unit.
It just continually dispenses water. I used it on an area rug that is 5 feet
wide and 8 feet long and it used 3 tanks of clean water. It did pick most of it
up as I emptied the pickup tank twice. Anyone have a similar experience or know
what could be the problem?
