Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
HI, I have a Hoover All Terrain steamvac. The solution won't dispense when I use the upright, but the solution will dispense when I use the hose and upholstery nozzle???
The original problem was, How do I attach the upholstery attachment to the cleaner. I see where
the water connection is, but not where to attach the hose part.,
The solution to attaching the upholstery attachment to the Hoover Steam Vac cleaner was excellent for steps 1 and 2. However, in step 3, I can not simply slide the upholstery attachment straight down. It gets stuck and does not connect to the bottom connector and is stuck in midair. It seems like I am doing something wrong. My Hoover model steam vac model number is F5900-900.
The solution given in steps 1,2, and 3 where I have a problem with step 3 is as follows;
What is NOT easily visible is the connection for the vacuum hose. That's because the machine needs to be "reconfigured" before the hose can be attached. To "reconfigure" the machine:
1) Remove the cover off the waste water tank and notice how things appear--it will soon be important.
2) Find and remove the "panel" on the front of the waste water tank by sliding it straight up and out.
3) Replace the panel with the connector by sliding it straight down. When finished the top should look something like it did in step 1). This assures that the dirty water will be vacuumed into the waste water tank.

The solution will not dispense from the machine but will still dispense from the hose.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5866-900 SteamVac Deluxe Wet/Dry. You probably have 2 problems, #1. The trigger assm may be loose or broken and is not releasing the solution from the water solution tank or #2. The valve under the water solution tank could be shot or broken. If so, then the water solution tank is one assm and you would need to purchase a new or a good used one to replace. Please, feel free to check with your local vac dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Your problem is inside the vacuum hose where they have installed a small coiled hose that carries water to the smaller power head for upholstery. After taking this apart I found the inner smaller coiled hose was broken at 2 different places. A very poor design and poor quality material. The hose looked like it was rotted. This could be from old detergent left in the line or maybe the wrong detergent. A job to get it apart but if you remove the three screws that hold the side plate over the electrical you can block that hose off and the machine will work on floors only as the water to the power head is terminated.

There is no schematic that I am aware of. I can tell you that from experience that this repair is very difficult. Basicaly the upper and lower handle unscrew along with the tank base, the hood comes off. the lower handle will split but not comes completely apart to remove the hose section. When reassembling, be sure to put the back hose gasket in the correct position. Look at it (take a picture) prior to repair first.
