Hi guys, I’m running my temprature on hot. Psi around 400, 100 ft high pressure line but the water on my upholstery tool never comes out steaming hot. It’s like Luke warm. Is there anything I can do to trouble shoot?

When running my carpet wand it’s fine.

Put a blank QC on your solution line and purge the line of cold water and heat everything from the mount to the tool. Then start cleaning. I do it back into my freshwater tank and then string the uber hot solution line into the job. Upholstery tools don't move enough juice to stay hot, you may need to launch a slug of water into your vac hose periodically if you have a lot of time between water use to keep the heat, like when prespraying and agitating sections at a time.
