Bower moter flywheel has ripped loose. No suction and the brushes don't turn. Cheap design. Mine lasted 13 months. Just out of warranty.

Dirt devil spot scrubber not picking up


Hi there! There are a few reasons why your spot scrubber may not be picking up. Your dirty water tank may not be seated properly or the filter may be dirty Please try these steps.

1. Check the filter located on top of the dirty water tank. If dirty, rinse with water.
2. Check that the pour spout cap on dirty water tank is plugged.
3. Replace the dirty water tank. Make sure the dirty water tank is flush to the cleaner and seated properly.
4. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.

Hope this helps! For further assistance please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

My steam vac was working...i thought the dirty water was full but it didn't make the hi pitched noise now that i think about it.....now it is not sucking up the dirty water.....i checked to make sure...


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

Not sucking up dirty water


Sounds like the suction motor is not working correctly. Either clogged with dirt or objects or it is failing.

Check this first:

Not suctioning properly, first check the motor duct gasket. To check this, first remove the tank and place your hand over the rubber square opening.

If your machine does have suction at the duct, continue to check the following:

Ensure the Ready Tools Dial is set to the appropriate setting (Floor Cleaning or Hose Attachments).

Remove the tank from the machine and ensure the tank lid is attached properly. The front window must first hook onto the lip of the bottom of the tank and then drape over the tank. Latch the bottom tank to the top tank lid. THIS LID CANNOT BE
ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE TANK IS NOT REMOVED FROM THE MACHINE.

Make sure the Water Tank is not full on the outside of the bladder. If it is, empty the tank.
Ensure the hose is firmly attached to the back of the machine. If not, re-insert as necessary by twisting into place.

The machine must be in an upright, locked position and set to the Hose Attachment setting. If the handle is slightly tilted back while using, it will create a small gap at the suction inlet (where handle meets gasket, above the Bottom Tank) which will cause little or no suction.

Check the red Tank Lint Screen for debris. If the Lint Screen is dirty, the unit will have poor suction. Clean the Lint Screen if necessary.

If the float flap door in the tank lid is activating prematurely when you turn the machine on, this flap door should be replaced.
Check the Tank Lid and Tank for damage.

If there is no suction there, please take your machine to a BISSELL Authorized Service Center for inspection.

I have a Bissel proheat 7901 carpet cleaner and it is not sucking the water up. Normally when I clean the water gets sucked back up and I have to empty the dirty tank. Now no water is in the tank when I am...


I'm not sure if this will help but I had the same problem and was about ready to pull my hair out. I ended up taking the fill tank off and if you look inside where the red overflow flap is you will find a small screened opening. I found that mine was pretty clogged up with debris but once I removed the mess and put my machine back together it is now sucking like a champ. I hope this helps. Here's hoping that you don't have the pay for a service person to look at it.

Upholstry attachement


The hose end should have a duct on it that you insert in front of the dirty water tank. It must be down all of the way so it will seal. This is where your suction starts from. Acouple of other reasons could be the dirty water tank lid is not locked down all of the way around, the back end isn't locked. If there is a foam filter on the bottom of the dirty water lid, there mustbe a gap between the top and the filter.

Steam vac will not pick up dirty water


My Hoover Steamvac problem isn't with the bruches--it's with the suction. Dirty soapy water stays in the carpet instead of being returned to one of the holding tanks.

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, or the lid for the dirty water tank is not locked down on th e tank.
