Our vacuum bag was full and we keep on vacuuming. I believe some lent and hair got sucked into the vacuum motor. We've changed the bag and filters. Now the motor makes a loud noise especially when shutting...


Get a professional repairer to examine it. Even with an over-full bag, dirt will not have got in to the motor if the pre-motor filter was correctly positioned and in good condition. However, the motor may have been damaged through lack of air flow and consequent over-heating. Your machine may well need a new motor, and that's a job you won't be able to do for yourself.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I value your feedback, so please remember to rate this response. Good luck!

Dirty water is leaking back out


After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to hoover.com to download one for cleaning directions.

Shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out


Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

Wouldn't be the pump, the pump pushes the water out when you are spraying. If a suction problem check for clogged filters, is the tank sitting down tight?

Empty the recovery tank; it may be full
and the automatic shut-off engaged.
Make sure filter and filter lid are properly
positioned.
Make sure tanks are locked in place.
Check the filter and clean if dirty.
Make sure nozzle is replaced properly
and locked

My vacuum is not sucking at all.....


I took out the air flow filter at the back of the vacuum and turned it on, somehow the clog cleared. Then I put the filter back in and it works perfectly! Barb
