Steamvac stopped After cleaning the carpet for about 2 hrs. & after placing the canister with fresh cleaning solution back in place, I turned the machine on. It ran for approx. 5 sec. then stropped. I detected a burning smell for a moment. Is the vac dead? Thanks!

How can Berber carpets be maintained fresh and new-like for a longer period of time?


You can clean them with household units but even professionals have trouble with berber carpet because of its tight weave and usual inlaid patterns. Dry carpet cleaning between professional cleanings will help keep carpet looking new without staining. My suggestion is to use a dry carpet cleaning machine and then have a professional come in with hot water extract as often as every year depending on traffic. I sell the SEBO DUO machine you can see by clicking the link provided.

Changed hose on carpet cleaner and it wont pick up the water


If you are unable to pick up water from the carpet after using the hose attachment, is is usually due to one of two reasons.
1 - The duct on the front of the dirty water tank has not been put back in place after using the hose. It is a square plastic piece about the size of a slice of sandwich bread.
2 - The lid is not properly seated on the tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front edge in place before hooking the latch at the rear. This also applies when using the hose.

The carpet brush won't revolve on the Hoover S3765. After 5 months I replaced the belt and the salesman gave us model 38528-036. Is this correct? The rotating brushes are not hard to turn; it's just...


this is the part for the belt, 38528036. you can get it at sears website or service center. also make sure you clean the caps on the side of the brush. take them out and remove hair and dirt. put a little or mineral oil and install them back.

good luck to you.

Every thing clean & sucking well except wont pickup off floor. brush in good condition &rotating. any answers would help.


This is hard to answer without see it in person. Check and make sure there is no broken pieces on the bottom where you could loose suction. Also make sure you have the machine set correctly for either bare floors or carpet. If it is on set on carpet and yopu are cleaning bare floors you might loose suction there also. Also make sure you check all pathways for the dirt to get to the canister fo any signs of blockage. Are all the filters in place like they should be? Sounds like the suction is getting diverted from the floor somehow, make sure everything is secure and locked in place on the canister. Also check on the top of the handle and make sure the little purple screen is moved back into place covering the top of the handle, you could be sucking more air in thru this inlet and not enough off the floor! This is usually moved out of the way when you connect the hose to the handle for your attatchments. It may still be pulled back and needs to be moved forward into place!

I'll be happy to walk you through step by step how you can attach the hose to your Hoover SteamVac.

Here are step by step instructions for you:

Step 1. To prevent possible leaking, remove
clean solution tank by pressing down on
tank handle (D) and pulling forward; set
tank aside (do not set tank on furniture2_bing.gif).
Remove hose from storage rack.

Step 5. Before connecting tube (H) to
cleaner, make sure black tabs are
extended by pulling tan collar toward
tube.
Open door on hood labeled “Stair/
upholstery Cleaning Connection”. Press
round solution tube connector onto

collar down firmly to ensure
that it is fully connected.

Step 6. The tank replaces in a hinge-like
manner. Position front of lid under tabs

For full suction, it is important that
the recovery tank lid is properly
secured before cleaning.

WHEN I PUT THE MACHINE ON TO CLEAN TH CARPET THE WATER DISPENSES INTO THE CARPET AND THE BRUSHES do not SPIN and theres NO SUCTION TO REMOVE THE WATER FROM CARPET


Make sure the lower tank lid is on securely, clean the intake filter on the top right of the machine. ensure the front panel is installed (the square to remove for hoe use). this has to be in place for carpet operation

My steamvac will not **** in it just blows air out and does not pick up the water solution once it has been sprayed on the carpet.


I finally remedied this "no suction" problem with mine. At front of recovery tank is a plastic panel that can slide up and down. Make sure that front panel is pushed COMPLETELY down when cleaning floors.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. Good Luck!!

Not sucking up water


Hi.  I had the same problem.  After looking at the manual I went back and made sure the canister was making a proper seal.  That fixed the problem.  Make sure when you put the top back on the canister (that holds the dirty water), that you place the two front hinges in  place first and then snap the center clap on the back of the top.  This will give you a proper seal for suction. (My two front hinges weren't fitting correctly.)
Good luck!
