Need front panel Small Plastic Part For Dirty Tank Holder

I lost the plastic front panel part to my steam vac. This is the part you slide out of the dirty water tank to put in your attachment for apolstery cleaning hose. You slide it out and then when finished with using your apolstery cleaner attachment you slide it back in to use the steam vac as a upright carpet cleaner. Do you know where I can get this part?

SOURCE: hoover steam vac clean surge

The recovery tank lid isn't locked down all of the way around. The foam filter on the inside of the tank lid is up too far, needs at leasat a 1/4 in gap from the top. The filter screen by thye indicator is clogged. Some have a duct that sits in front of the recovery tank, either it isn't there or not pushed down all of the way.

SOURCE: f5411 steam vac jr. spot cleaner

There is one manual for the Hoover F5411 SteamVac Jr. available on FixYa.com but, when I opened it, I was not able to actually download a "copy" of the manual.
Instead, it looked like I would have to download / save all the pages of the manual as individual web pages (and then, if I wanted, convert them).

I went to http://safemanuals.com/ (also a very good site) and, although they didn't have the manual there, I was directed to the main www.Hoover.com website.
There, under "manuals," I found the manual, available for download as a pdf file.

Happy steamcleaning!

  • Check to make sure that the lower dirty water lid is installed and secure and not cracked.
  • Check to make sure the front duct panel is installed on the dirty water tank (this will transition the water from the front nozzle into the tank)
  • Check the filter in the dirty tank lid, clean if necessary
  • Remove the lower tank and look at the motor cover, locate a round hole, you should see a black ring (gasket).
  • with the lower tank removed, turn the machine on to check suction at the round hole, if OK then your problem will be with one of the above reasons

Steam Vac Ultra five rotating brushes won't ****


ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN.

I have a hoover steam vac spin scrub that won't pick up the dirty water heeelllllllppppppppppppp please


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.

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.

Setting up for apolstery cleaning


Hoover Steam Vac F5853-900 Series 17.9

Remove the tank front panel by sliding it straight up. Replace panel with converter (located on end of hose, end is shaped like front panel that you slide out.Before connecting tube to cleaner, make sure black tabs are extended by pulling tan collar roward tube.Open door on hood labeled "Stair/Upholstery Cleaning Connection" Press round solution tube connector onto round projection inside door. Press connecator collar down firmly to ensure that it is fully connected.
When the solution tube is connected to the deep cleaner, the nozzle brushes will automatically be turned off and will not rotate when the deep cleaner is turned on even if the speed selector is in the HI oar LO position. For full suction, it is important that the recovery tank lid is properly secured before cleaning.The tank lid is replaced in a hinge-like manner. Position front of lid under tabs on front of tank. Rotate lid down onto tank. Make sure lid is secure on all sides before cleaning.Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Hoover Upright SteamVac Deluxe with stair and upholstery cleaner


Don't listen to Solution #1, it is simply NOT correct. This is the correct answer:

As you stated, you already know where the water hose connection is. It is under the easily visible port cover on the top of the base.

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.
Done!
