Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
I can see from the top when I take the thing apart that the standpipe seal is dislodged, but how do I get to it? I have taken the entire thing apart and still can't get underneath it. It appears that there is a portion of the bottom that can pop out (no screws), but it won't budge. Help!

The brushes are all connected to a single shaft. This square shaft is connected to 2 sets of gears and then another shaft which is turned by an impeller (suction from the vaccum pump is used to turn the impell and thus the brushes). There are 2 bearings that the impeller shaft turns on. It's likely these are rusted up and just need a bit of WD 40. Took me 30 min to take apart, lube, and put back together. Remember, its plastic. If things won't come apart, look for another screw. Mine was a brand new unit and the top bearing was rusted.

A few more things that you can try on your SteamVac. First remove the dirty water solution tank from the machine completely. You should see where the solution tank was just sitting, a plastic casing with a whole in it. This is actually where the suction from the motor goes into. Turn the machine on and feel the hole there for any suction coming out. Did you feel suction coming from the hole? If yes, then your issue is going to be something with the dirty solution tank, because without the tank it's sucking fine. If you didn't feel any suction from this hole, it may indicate that there is something more serious that needs to be taken care of.
One other place you may look on your machine (as long as the upholstery hose for stairs and furniture is already attached to the machine, and you don't have to hook anything up to the dirty water tank to use the attachments) while the dirty solution tank is out of it, is where the attachment hose makes connection with the vacuum. If you recline the handle down while you have the dirty water tank out, look in the back of the handle housing for a hose that enters the housing 3/4 down the housing. Now follow the hose on the inside of the handle not the outside, follow it up to the point where it goes into the neck, near where the suction hole is. Right at the end of the hose, right before the hose cuff, is this ripped, or damaged here?

Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.
Make sure the tank lid is aligned to the recovery tank to seal, and assure the square panel is in place on the front of the recovery tank that connects the vacuum of the tank to the clear nozzle plate.
