    Was working fine last time I used it. Now only picks up a little bit of dirty water. Tried cleaning everything I had access to with no luck. Motor sounds as good as before. What am I missing??

I used a new Hoover Spin ScrubSteam Vac the first time and it worked great. The next day it would not such up the water and sounded like it was sucking air. I took off the lid on the recovery tank and when carefully inspecting the gaskets saw a every so small slilt in the small gasket that surrounds the intake duct. I put some silicone glue on it to close and seal it. This morning I tried sucking up water on a tile floor and it worked OK! I have not tried it again on carpets but am keeping my fingers crossed.

Royal carpet extractor not picking up water well


Try to follow the suction from the machine through the dirty water tank to the front floor suction piece. Make sure the dirty water tank is seated properly. Make sure there are no suction leaks any where.

WHAT MUST i DO TO SUCTION WATER? I DID THIS ONCE AND IT ATE AWAY THE FILTER. DO I NEED TO REMOVE THE FILTER WHEN I SUCTION WATER?


remove filter! please empty the unit as mixing dust/dirt with water can start to hack on the motor as the filter is removed during wet pick up where at the beginning you have dust flying around inside recovery tank. make sure to rinse and dry recovery tank before rreplacing filter.

Halo main suction motor will not come on


Used my Steam Vac twice and now there is no suction where the unit should be picking up the water layed down from the sprayer. I've readjusted the collection tank, took the lid off and made sure the side clips were snug and cliped against the tank, but still no suction. I don't hear any unusual noises, the handle lays down, water spits out, it just has lost suction. Any suggestions? With Appreciation, -kb

I have the bissell x2 12 amp carpet shampooer


The water should be picked up fairly rapidly into the area surrounding the clean water bladder. Try checking the lint filter to fix your suction problem. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). One the under side of it there is a small (1 inch square) red filter with a little door on it. Flip open the door and it is probably clogged with hair, carpet fibre. etc.. Clean it out and you should have suction.

The water is staying in carpets and is not being sucked back to the machine


The pick up slot across the front of the unit may be blocked or internal path for the water into the tank. Disconnect from electric and strip down the head and check for fibres/fluff balls - as these are the normal culprits. I am assuming that the suction motor is running?
Good luck

Vacuum not picking up


At the top of your wand, do you have a plastic swivel that cover a hole in the wand? This is for when you are cleaning curtains, and if that is open, or cracked you will loose suction there... also check your hose for cracks, or breaks. If it were in the shop I would put a gauge on it... normal suction is about 80-95 inches of water lift at the end of the hose. Once you have check each section of the hose, and wand, check the housing for cracks, a missing gasket (Very Good Reason For Lack Of Suction) As to your Filter, how long have you used that one filter, you can clean them for a while, but once a paper filter gets full of FINE dust you won't get it all out, you will have to replace the filter itself at that point. I hope this was helpful.

Have a Hoover SteamVac with 5 brushes and it will not suck up any water and I have cleaned all the brushes but it still wont pick up any water

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Part of the problem is with your holding tank, there is a rubber gasket that seals the unit to pup the water and if that gasket is cracked or missing it will not pup. Also there could be something wrong with the suction motor or the Hoover SteamVac may be clogged and will not pup the water, if there is a way to say back track the suction then follow the suction back to the suction motor and if you see a clog – remove it. Otherwise you may have a bad suction motor and it would need replacing as a last resort. If the Hoover SteamVac is less than one year factory warranty it would be covered under the Hoover factory warranty and then feel free to contact the local Hoover Factory Authorized Dealer in your area, so call the cust serv @ Hoover and they can direct you to a dealer that would cover this under warranty. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
