Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Hoover SteamVac F5905900

The recovery tank lid will not snap in place. The back latch will not hold. Can you tell me if I need to order a new lid or the whole tank. If so, can you give me the part number. The latch will latch when you latch the back first but of course your front latches are not latched. Does that make sense?? Thank you, Patricia Biles

The proper way to install the reovery tank lid is to attach the front such that it catches the tank and then lowered to snap in place in the back

It will not pick up the water. Help !!!!!


Problem #1 - My Steamvac is not Sucking!
If your Hoover Steamvac was working properly and suddenly it is not sucking any water, nine times out of ten, the culprit is the lid on the lower recovery tank. The lid on the lower tank (or dirty water tank) needs to hinge at the front and snap down at the back in order to creat a proper seal. If the lid snaps on but is not locked on at the front, you will not get any suction. Simply take the lid off, and ensure that when you put it back on, it must hinge on the front tabs of the tank.
Problem #2 - My Steamvac is still not Sucking!
Right now you are thinking that you shouldn't have let your brother borrow your Steamvac. And you are right, because he used the hose attachment and returned it with the hose still attached to the front of the tank (some models only). Now when you try to use it there isn't any suction. In this case, you are missing your tank duct. On models where the stair/upholstery hose attaches to the front of the recovery tank, one must remove a square plastic piece in order to attach the hose. This square plastic tank duct must be replaced before the Steamvac will operate properly in the upright position. hope this helps ive copied it

My Hoover Steamvac won't suck. I checked the front door thing on the dirty water tank and found a crack where the bottom of the door meets the tank. Would this stop it from working?


From your description, this would certainly need to be corrected, and yes may be the problem. Also, check the recovery tank lid to make sure that is on and latched properly. Ensure the round tube that is under the recovery tank has the gasket seal installed.

My Hoover steamvac is not sucking up water


The most common reason for lack of pick up on the F5800 or F5900 series is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

Hoover Steamvac does not **** up the water


There are two common situations that can cause lack of pick-up. First is that the lid is not properly attached to the recovery tank. Make sure it is latched in back and snapped in place in front. The second common problem is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. There is a plastic duct about the size of a slice of sandwich bread which slides into the front of the tank, and is removed when the hose is in use. A less common problem is that the large round rubber seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the suction tube on the motor cover.

When trying to scrub rug, the cleaning fluid runs out but the scrubber will not **** it back up. My rug is soaked!


You have an air leak. This is almost always caused by the lid not being correctly installed on the recovery tank. Remove the lid, hook it in the back, and snap the front latch in place. A less common problem is that the square duct on the front of the lower tank has been removed to use the attachment hose and not put back in the tank after use.

Hoover carpet cleaner not picking up water


Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

In addition, make sure the recovery tank lid is properly aligned to the tank to seal.

Lastly, make sure the square duct is latched in place in front of the recovery tank, that links the nozzle plate to the tank lid.

I poured the water out and when i went to put lid back on its not sucking up the water and lid keeps moving around


The lid on the lower tank needs to have a tight seal, otherwise you will lose suction to the floor. make sure all latches are secure.
