I apologize for giving you the wrong information previously. I am still unable to get further assistance from the manufacturer. If you will try some things and let me know if they donâ€™t work, we can get this job done.
If you will go to sears.com
and select parts and enter your model number, you can look at a parts list of the carpet cleaner. This will help in locating the things we need to remove.
I think you will have to remove the upper handle to access the screws. Remove the recovery and the solution tanks. Just above the solution tank support are 2 phillipsâ€™ screws. The nuts are on the back of the upper handle countersunk inside the handle. Remove those bolts and nuts and the upper handle will pull up out of the lower handle.
I hope getting the upper handle out of the way will let you access the 2 screws you need.
