Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
I have a Hoover Steamvac F5915-900 that I purchased in Dec 08. It has worked very well until I lost suction when I was using it yesterday. After going through all the suggestions in the manual I noticed that the gasket between the recovery tank and the unit had come off . I replaced the gasket and suction returned. Now everytime I remove the recovery tank to empty it, the gasket comes off. It's really a pain. Is there a solution to this problem? I shampoo weekly and get really frustrated fighting this problem. Help me please!
This is a great basic steam cleaner. I have not heard of repeated problems of this type. The gasket is called a standpipe gasket. I would try to use a non-permanent sealant such as RTV silicone to adhear the gasket, eventually if this needed service you will want the gasket to be able to be removed.
