Question about Hoover F5881-900 Vacuum

No spray for my upholstery cleaner!

Everything seems to be "right", but, no spray out of the upholstery cleaner... I have the machine upright, the "tools" indicator is in the window, the upholstery cleaner brushes rotate - press trigger, no solution comes out. Floor part works fine... I have taken the easy parts apart and cleaned them best I could. Thanks for the manual posting! No help here, though... Teddy G. www.teddygvo.com

After tearing things down and inspecting the handle switch, etc., I found that my problem was detergent. It sets idle for a while or doesn't get used very much and the detergent dries and actually clogs the inside of the hose. I cleared it by fully extending the hose, pressing the button and allowing the clog to clear itself. The built in heater helped out a lot once the flow started again. I used a can of compressed air to provide a little blow back to get things moving but not too much or the pump would be damaged. Remove the tool and hold the nozzle into an empty cup while depressing the trigger. A warm vinegar solution clear things out nicely.

Your handle cover is broken inside not allowing plunger to go down. Take screw out, and you'll probably see the piece that holds plunger is broke.

Water is leaking out of the upholstery cleaner


Might the button be stuck a bit? We had this problem and rinsed the brushes out and cleaned the connector area with a damp paper towel. Had to push the button in and out several times to be sure it wasn't sticking. Also, when the hose is docked found it tended to hit the docking station and would spray everywhere! Had to turn around the hose w/ the button so it would stop spraying everywhere. Hope this helps.

No carpet spray


That means that you need to replace the pump belt. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual:

Check the pump belt, just take that small door of and you can see the belt. If it looks ok, then probably need a new pump.

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!
