Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Using upholstery attachment on the hoover spin scrup heated cleaner

I can't find my manual and want to use the upholstery attachment for the first time. I think I have figured out how to attach it, but how do I make it work? When I turn the machine on, and pull on what I believe to be the "trigger" to get the cleaner to come out, nothing happens with the upholstry attachment. Is there something else I need to do to get it to work?

Water leaks out under the unit when using the upholstery attachment?

You may wish to check and see if the leak is where the small water supply hose is plugged in to the cleaner base. That connecction supplies water from the product, to the spray end on the upholstery hose.

I can not seem to get the attachment for the upholstery cleaner to operate what am i doing wrong????

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. 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.
