Hoover steam vac deep cleaner not ucking up


Hi! If your cleaner is not picking up this could mean that something is not sealed off properly. Try these brief trouble-shooting steps to restore suction to your SteamVac.


1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.
Give it a try! The suction should be restored. Hope this helps!

How do i disassemble my hoover f7220


Hi there! The tanks, brushes, nozzle and handle can be removed from the cleaner by following these quick steps below.

1. To remove the clean water tank simply grasp the handle and push down on handle to unlock it, then pull the tank out by the handle.
2. To remove the dirty water tank, slide the latches open located on the sides of the cleaner that hold the tank to the base of the cleaner. Grasp the handle and pull up and off.
3. For brush removal, with the handle in the upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
4. To remove the nozzle, with handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on floor. Pull tab at rear edge of nozzle and pull forward to remove nozzle.
5. For handle removal simply remove the handle screw and lift up on handle.

Disassembly beyond this point is not recommended. Hope this helps!

Clean water and solution will not dispense


This is an unusual problem. The most likely reason is that the supports inside the upper handle grip have broken, and when you squeeze the trigger, the rod that opens the reservoir assembly is not pushing open the valve. If you remove the upper tank, and look behind it, you should be able to see the end of the actuating rod sitting on top of a rubber valve assembly. Squeeze the trigger and watch the rod to see if it pushes down on the valve. If it doesn't, the upper handle grip will likely need replacement. If it does push down on the rubber seal, the reservoir assembly has probably failed and may need replacement.

There are 2 tabs on the bottom front edge of the switch plate which slide under the metal top cover. Make sure these tabs have not gotten bent upward so they will not slide under the top cover. If they are bent, simply pry them open. Also, note that the handle pivot has a sliding latch on it to allow the handle to be fully lowered. To lower the handle flat, push the little knob inward.

How do you get the water tank out to fill on the bissell pro-heat


release the handle until it sits all the way flat. At the top of the water tank there is a folded down gray handle, lift that up and then pull up on the handle and it should come straight up. Then you need to push that gray handle all the way forward so that the lid will pull up, and you then pour the clean water into the small round opening in the top of the open tank.

I cant open my scooba


If you haven't used the scooba before or if it has been a long time, the pump may need to be primed.  Go to irobot and do a search for how to do this.  I also had difficulty opening my scooba.  Press down with the palm of your hand on the back silver plate as you push down on the silver release handle.  This worked for me.

First off is the gasket on the bottom of the tank vavle or sitting in the hole. It has to be on the bucket. May have a problem with the handle not pushing the valve (in the handle)open when you squeeze the trigger. Check the back end of the top cover to make sure it hasn't broken loose from the base, if it has, that raises the top so water won't dispense from the tank. The draw back is that Bissell has obsoleted some parts for this model.

There is a valve at the bottom of the tank, push it in and see if it goes in and out ok. The tank sits on the reservior asm., a rod in the handle pushes it when you squeeze the trigger. You may have a problem with the rod not releasing or a bad reservior asm.
