Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Tab that holds cleaner upright broken off

Product F5914-900....while carrying cleaner downstairs, broke off little tab on the release button, that holds back in place. So cannot use cleaner because it will not stay in place. From what I can see, only recourse is to replace whole plastic part (cover) on bottom to mid point on cleaner. Am I right? Or is there and easier way? Have only used it twice.

If your cleaner hasbeen purchased within the last year it should be under warranty. By the way you are describing this problem the back assembly is the best solution, and can be replaced by a warranty dealer. Go to the Hoover web site hoover.com to locate a dealer near you.

How do I remove outer bag of oreck vacuum cleaner XL 9000W and how do I clean it? Removable bag broke and outer bag filled up with dirt.


If there is a bag dock on it, seperate large part of bag dock from smaller one, by squeezing bottom of bag dock to release tabs from larger one. Pull smaller part of bag dock apart and off of vacuum. Bag will now release from hole. If there is no bag dock, there is a metal piece around hole that is holding other bag on.

Release button jammed


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. If the release button seems to be jammed, you might want to try pulling the wand upwards and away from the cleaner with a little more force than usual, whilst holding the release button down firmly. Make sure you're not standing directly over the handle as you do this. If this doesn't free the wand, it's probably best if you get in touch with us directly so we can provide further assistance. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

Jack

Have a DC25, I can not return the handle to the upright position. Nothing appears to be broken


Occasionally, customers have problems locking their Dyson vacuum in the upright position. This is a minor problem common with the Dyson DC07 and DC14 series and can easily be fixed by the customer. This page will show how to fix this problem. Although we show a Dyson DC14 Animal on this page, these instructions will work on any Dyson vacuum in the DC07 and DC14 series.

During shipping, moving parts on a Dyson vacuum can shift in position. One of these parts is a swinging arm in the base of the unit. This arm holds a removable elbow pipe in the vacuum's air passage. This arm can move out of the way so that you can clear out a blockage in the air passage. When this arm is out of position, the vacuum will not lock in the upright position. Fig. 1 Shows the base of a Dyson DC14 Animal locked upright. The red arrow points to the swinging arm. Fig. 2 shows the vacuum with the swing arm out of position. Since the swing arm is lower than it should be, it doesn't line up with the tab on the main body indicated by the red arrow.

Lean the handle of your Dyson all the way back and locate the black button on the right side of the vacuum indicated by the red arrow in Fig. 3.. Press the button down and hold it to unlock the swing arm.

While holding down the black button, pull the swinging arm (Shaded red in Fig. 4) all the way up. Fig. 5 shows the swinging arm in the correct position. Release the black button to lock the swing arm back in place.

The vacuum can now lock in the upright position as shown in Fig. 6. Note how the tab on the swinging arm overlaps the tab on the main body..

On switch will not stay down or on


My vacuum had this exact same problem, but was out of warranty because it was remanufactured. Thankfully, it's a very quick, five-minute fix.
  1. UNPLUG The Vacuum!
  2. Remove the cannister.
  3. Extend the handle and remove it.
  4. Remove the two torx (T-15) screws behind the power button, where the handle normally stows.
  5. There are four tabs holding the front plate containing the power button on; use your screwdriver to release them.
  6. Gently pull the front plate off.
  7. The switch on the right is the power button. Remove it, try clicking it a few times; if it sticks, great, it should now stick when you press the power button. Replace it and reassemble, otherwise you'll need to get a new switch.

Inside is a little propeller a spring a washer and a little black plug. Flat on one side and beveled on the other. We have tried to put it back in various selection and cant fix it please help ASAP liquid bladder will not release water.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright. On the little black plug – they do wear out and need to replace it but use a genuine Bissell part when replacing the part other wise a replacement may not work. Q. #2 the little propeller spring usually is part of the solution tank and it is wise to replace the part with a new or a good used tank from Bissell, so check with your local factory authorized vac dealer that carries and services Bissell. I will give you the Bissell factory phone # listed below for further questions. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Leaking


My machine leaked badly BUT it was my own fault. There is a one-time only setup procedure where you squeeze the trigger and push the Clean-Surge button to lock a rod into place. Push the Clean-Surge button VERY HARD. There will be a loud SNAP which sounds like you broke something, but you didn't. I didn't push hard enough initially, all I got was a click which I thought was enough. My machine leaked so I called the help line. They told me to push the button harder, and sure enough, they were right. Until you get that snap, the Clean-Surge (which releases a little extra water-cleaner solution) is on all the time, hence the leaking

No spray for my upholstery cleaner!


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.
