Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
I had Hoover tech suppoort on the line for over an hour. Tried this: Verify hose attachment to front of water recovery box. Verify that cover on recovery box is well seated/sealed all around (did this 3 times). Verify that trigger orifice is no plugged up by blowing through it..Verified that liquid hose prongs are clipped firmly. In my view, the unit is not pumping water.. When they had me lower the hose, without the trigger, into a bowl, where the bowl was lower than the clean water tank, liquid flowed out of the hose no problem. How does the unit pump water? Other suggestions, please?
Check the valves at the bottom of the tank(43513026)also check for cracks in the tank(42272104). Another thing to check is the handle asm. is a rod that pushs on the resevoir asm(tanks sits on) to make sure that it is stuck in the on position. Depressing the trigger and watching, you should be able to see if it is moving up and down ok.

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?
