SOURCE: No suction

I had a a low suction problem. Mine was easily fixed. Stand in front of the machine. When you remove the recovery tank there are the notches on the front of the tank that fit down into the machine. In the right hole in which the right notch fits, there should be a black rubber washer on the machine. Mine somehow came off and feel into the machine therefore there was practically no suction as the seal was not airtight. I only discovered this when I took apart the machine and found it floating around. Just something to check.

Check the flexible hose that comes down from the handle.  Look for a crack where it plugs into the base unit.  (visible once you open the handle up and remove the cleanable catch basket)

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

SOURCE: have an old Hoover steam

Check the filters, make sure they aren't clogged. Also if this has the foam filter on the inside of the tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 is gap from the top.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

Steam vac won't **** water


check to see if the recovery tank lid is on correctly. if this is not on, the machine will not **** up the dirty water from the carpet. all you will get is suction that is chopy when it comes up instead of more like a flow.

I am using a hoover ultra steam cleaner but the red ball keeps coming to the top . I assume this indicates it is full and ready to empty however it is still empty . The red ball will not stay down in order...



Thankyou,

The redball indicates that it is full, that is due to the high resistence its suction system is inducing, because it is empty and it still stays up, I would try to turn the power settings a little lower, or it is experiencing high pressure from operation. Also, if you could adjust the bristles, or losen around the air vents. This should do the trick.
Thankyou, :)

Hoover steam vac


I had the same problem just before the impeller broke. Lower the handle and check the hose connection at the bottom is not broken. Turn the unit on with the handle down, then check the suction on the accessory hose, leae it disconnected. Take off the bottom container, and check the suction on the round intake tube (lower one towards the front), with the handle up and with the handle down. If the suction increases dramatically when the handle is lowered, the impeller is probably in it's self-destruct stage. (same as mine). Soon the impeller will break off, and BINGO no suction at all.

Good luck!

Red stopper suction keeps popping up


There is a splash sock around that valve. When the air is drawn through the sock, it sets up too much turbulence and this causes the valve to lift and block the opening. Remove the sock and it will solve your problem. The first series of these machines had a 7 amp motor that didn't develop enough suction to affect the valve, but later models were 12 amp and there was too much air flow for the splash sock, so they were removed. The later production models incorporated a screen over the motor opening in the tank which substituted for the sock.
