Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

Can't get upper tank to snap back in place after removal.

I just assembled my F5914-900 Cleaner, and I can't get the upper tank to snap back into place securely. I try to push it into place, and it just falls back out again. There is probably a very simple answer. Ruth

I've found on some of them that you have to stand behind the machine. Put the bottom of the tank in first, then the top, and when you have the tank in place, pull up on the tank handle so that it locks into the machine. It all has to do with that tank handle not locking into the machine. If you play with it a bit I think you'll figure it out.

Good Luck Ruth

Install upper control rod


Hi, it's Jeremy from Crucial Vacuum.

To attach the upper handle to your Hoover Steam Vac remove the clean solution tank (upper tank) from the deep cleaner. Then, attach the upper handle to the lower handle by pushing the upper handle down onto lower one. Use the provided bolts to secure the handles. Push the bolts into the accompanying holes on the front of handle. If the bolts do not go through the holes easily, your handle is not pushed completely down. When the handle sections are completely together, squeeze the trigger on the upper handle to snap the trigger rod into place.

I just purchased a floormate. I can't seem to get it to spray cleaning solution.


Turn the cleaner off and then on again to determine whether the cause of no suction resulted from the activation of the automatic shut-off. There are two reasons a tank will automatically shut off. The first is if the recovery tank is full. Located on the lower front panel of the unit, the recovery tank can be easily emptied and replaced into position. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
Turn the unit on again and check the suctioning action. The second reason automatic shut-off could take place is if the handle was raised to an upright position while the motor was running. Should this occur, simply turn the unit off, wait a moment for the shut-off to reset, and turn it on again to continue cleaning.
  • 2 Make sure the filter and filter lid are properly positioned in the recovery tank lid. The cause of the problem could be that the filter or the filter lid were missing or were not in the proper position.
  • 3 Check that both recovery tank and/or solution tanks are locked in place and are positioned properly. The recovery tank is located on the lower front panel of the Floormate, and the solution tank is located in the front top panel of the unit. To remove from unit, press down on the release button and pull the tank downward and forward. Lift up on the tank latch lid and take out the tank lid. Empty the tank. Also check the tank lid screen for debris and remove any found. To replace the lid, align the tab that corresponds to the front hole of the tank. Snap the latches on the back of the tank. Insert the bottom of the tank back into the cleaner and push in and up until it locks in place.
  • 4 Observe whether filter is dirty. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter by turning the cleaner off and disconnecting it from the electrical unit. Take out the recovery tank and lid. Remove loose debris from the filter by wiping clean with a brush or tapping the filter over a garbage can. After this is completed, the filter may be rinsed clean for additional cleaning and then air dried before returning the filter to the unit.
  • 5 Check that the nozzle is in the proper position and locked. Locate the nozzle underneath the suctioning base of the unit. Make sure the latches are out and line up the middle section of the nozzle with the opening of the cleaner. Hold the nozzle in place while simultaneously sliding the latches inward to lock in

    No suction on my Pro heat steamer


    You may want to check to see if the removable nozzle is correctly placed into its place. This is the plastic part where the water is sucked up through by the carpet cleaner. The nozzle notches must fit into the groove on the cleaner correctly and the metal bar need to snap back on top of the removable nozzle, Also sometimes if you have hair trapped in the nozzle or the bristle, it will affect the suction power of getting up the dirty water. The dirty water tank need to snap in place by making sure the top of the gray snaps on each side is over the top groove of the dirty tank on each side and the the gray snaps are pushed down and pushed into the tank to until it is snapped in place.
    Super Simple answer could be: The Dirty water tank could have bubbles in it causing it not to **** too.

    My steam-vac carpet cleaner doesnt seem to be pulling the dirty water back out of the carpet.


    The most common reason for this is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the lid in front, and then snap it in place at the rear. Another problem could be that the duct is missing from the front of the tank. The duct is removed to install the hose assembly, and may not have been 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 less common problem is that the round rubber seal that the tank sits on has fallen of the motor cover suction tube. Look beneath the tank for the missing seal.

    My cleaner will not suction the cleaning solution back up


    There are several things you can check.
    1. make sure that the front panel duct is installed and secure.(was removed to use hose)
    2. when installing the lid on the lower tank, hook it on the front and snap securely.
    3. check your foam filter in the lower tank lid for obstructions.
    4. remove the lower tank and inspect the standpipe seal, ensuring it is in place.

    Also verify that your machine actually did dispense solution.

    Johnson CL.A U8820-120 motor jammed up in my Bissell carpet power cleaner


    I obtained a bearing from McMaster Carr (mcmaster.com) installed it and the carpet cleaner works
    once again. I used a double-sealed bearing (part number 5972K221) rather than a double-shielded
    bearing (part number 5972K36) which was of the type that failed. The original problem probably
    arose from the dirty water tank getting so full that water/detergent is sucked into the motor. I did not
    examine the unit to see if an interlock is supposed to prevent this from happening. In retrospect,
    I probably should have gone for a stainless bearing (part number 6153K71) which costs $11.56
    rather than the $4.26 for the one I selected. The repair was fairly straight-forward but confusing at
    times. The motor is under lower front cover (rounded with air vents). This is held on by two
    Phillips-head screws set deeply in holes in the back. However, the mounting tabs of the lower
    front cover are under the upper front cover. It may be possible to bend outwards the lower part
    of the upper cover, but I removed the upper cover. In addition to the two screws already mentioned,
    the upper cover is held by two screws passing through the protrusions to which the clean-water
    tank snaps are attached. You have to remove these snaps to pull the upper cover apart. After
    you get the motor/housing out, you can remove the plastic blower housing with four screws, but there
    is a metal blower housing underneath it that has to be pried out. Since the plastic one pries against
    tends to break, I ended up repeatedly catching the edge of the metal housing with a screw-driver
    blade and then rapping the screwdriver with a hammer. After removing the impeller, the motor can
    be pulled free of the blower housing. After removing the brushes, it took a while to realize that
    the brass-colored brush housings had to be slid almost all the way out to uncover the two screws
    that allow the armature to be removed from the field coils. The bearing is press fit in place, so you
    need a puller or some equivalent arrangement to remove the bearing. Not having a press, I used
    the impeller nut to press the new bearing into place. It had to be tapped lightly with a hammer
    at first. One the nut could grab a thread, it was used to press the bearing into place. Since you
    run out of thread before the bearing is fully seated, you need to add some spacers and repeat
    the process. I used a stack of washers. When removing he brushes, label their orientation so
    that they do not add excessive drag when reassembled. So far, the repaired cleaner has run about
    an hour without problems.
