Hoover Steamvac Upholstery Cleaner will not spray water.

My Hoover Steamvac Supreme Model F5817 will not spray water. Do you know how I take the sprayer head off the hose so I can clean it incase there is something underneath the trigger?...or do you have any other suggestions what could be wrong.
Also do you know where I could go to print out a manual.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.!

In my case when I pulled the trigger on the upholstery hose I barely got a drizzle of water. After looking at the parts online I realized the valve assembly on the spray end of the hose consisted of a black valve housing, with an inner spring and a white plunger part that sprays the water. The white plunger should move noticeably when the trigger is pulled. Since all 3 part of that valve assembly were replaceable I decided to try and take it apart. First I removed the 2 silver screws on the cover of trigger end of the hose and lifted out the valve assemble. The white plunger part was basically frozen in the black valve assembly. Tried pulling the white plunger out by hand wouldn't budge. So I use a pair of plier and pulled the white part out. Sure enough the whole inside was caked with what appeared to be old dried cleaner. I rinsed the spring and the white plunger. There were o-rings on the white plunger, I did not remove them but used an old tooth brush to clean out around them then reassembled. The white plunger now freeing slides a noticeable distance when the trigger is depressed and getting a large V shaped spray pattern. Lesson learned, I will now make sure I run plenty of plain water through the hose to rinse all the cleaner out after using it .

The original problem was, How do I attach the upholstery attachment to the cleaner. I see where the water connection is, but not where to attach the hose part.,

The solution to attaching the upholstery attachment to the Hoover Steam Vac cleaner was excellent for steps 1 and 2. However, in step 3, I can not simply slide the upholstery attachment straight down. It gets stuck and does not connect to the bottom connector and is stuck in midair. It seems like I am doing something wrong. My Hoover model steam vac model number is F5900-900.

The solution given in steps 1,2, and 3 where I have a problem with step 3 is as follows;

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!

Your problem is inside the vacuum hose where they have installed a small coiled hose that carries water to the smaller power head for upholstery. After taking this apart I found the inner smaller coiled hose was broken at 2 different places. A very poor design and poor quality material. The hose looked like it was rotted. This could be from old detergent left in the line or maybe the wrong detergent. A job to get it apart but if you remove the three screws that hold the side plate over the electrical you can block that hose off and the machine will work on floors only as the water to the power head is terminated.

Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had the same problem.

Judging by the interference between the vacuum hose and the "dirty water return" hose, there is NO WAY those two hoses can exist together in that housing without causing the dirty water return hose can last for many full bends of the handle. We opted to not repair our unit, but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

SOURCE: Instructions on how to put attachments on hoover

Remove solution tank.
Remove hose from storage rack.
Remove recovery tank and lay cleaner flat on floor. Remove lid,
Now, remove front panel from recovery tank by sliding it straight up.
Take your hose and slide the U-shaped end (converter) into the place where you removed the panel. Slide halfway down opening until it is firmly in place.
2nd step: You should have a tube with a "plug" on it hanging from the converter end. Open door on hoodl abeled "Stair upholstery/Cleaning Connection". Extend black tabs by pulling tan collar toward tube. Press connector collar down firmly to ensure that it is fully connnected.
It's sort of like a childproofed plug and socket. Pull back on the collar and push in the olug. Not hard at all once you've done it the first time.
Make sure you put the lid on the recovery tank correctly so you have suction. Attach whatever brush you want to use on the other end until the tab locks into place.
Sometimes you have to bleed the air from the line by turning on the cleeaner and letting it **** against your hand or hard surface for 15 seconds before its ready to use. This gets the solution to flow to the tool.
Good luck!

Hoover SteamVac Model F5887-920 - hand attachment won't spray


I have a model I got in 2001. I found that the water sprayer on the hand tool is driven by a little turbine that relies on suction from the main vacuum motor. I eventually found that the spindle inside the turbine had separated and hence the hand-tool wouldn't spray. I glued it together but that only fixed the problem until it broke again. I am going to buy another (about $23).

There is no belt, either the turbine part #43191003, or the brush block, the shaft that goes up into the turbine broke off part #48437022. The turbine is what drives the brushes.
