Question about Hoover F5807 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum
Hoe do you remove the steamvac attachment hose assembly and which replacement hose assembly is available. several are listed but all with caviets. my product is not listed so checked the closest. have a hoover steamvac model f5894.
The original problem was, How do I attach the upholstery attachment to the cleaner. I see where
the water connection is, but not where to attach the hose part.,
The solution to attaching the upholstery attachment to the Hoover Steam Vac cleaner was excellent for steps 1 and 2. However, in step 3, I can not simply slide the upholstery attachment straight down. It gets stuck and does not connect to the bottom connector and is stuck in midair. It seems like I am doing something wrong. My Hoover model steam vac model number is F5900-900.
The solution given in steps 1,2, and 3 where I have a problem with step 3 is as follows;
What is NOT easily visible is the connection for the vacuum hose. That's because the machine needs to be "reconfigured" before the hose can be attached. To "reconfigure" the machine:
1) Remove the cover off the waste water tank and notice how things appear--it will soon be important.
2) Find and remove the "panel" on the front of the waste water tank by sliding it straight up and out.
3) Replace the panel with the connector by sliding it straight down. When finished the top should look something like it did in step 1). This assures that the dirty water will be vacuumed into the waste water tank.

Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had the same problem.
Judging by the interference between the vacuum hose and the "dirty water return" hose, there is NO WAY those two hoses can exist together in that housing without causing the dirty water return hose can last for many full bends of the handle. We opted to not repair our unit, but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

Remove solution tank.
Remove hose from storage rack.
Remove recovery tank and lay cleaner flat on floor. Remove lid,
Now, remove front panel from recovery tank by sliding it straight up.
Take your hose and slide the U-shaped end (converter) into the place where you removed the panel. Slide halfway down opening until it is firmly in place.
2nd step: You should have a tube with a "plug" on it hanging from the converter end. Open door on hoodl abeled "Stair upholstery/Cleaning Connection". Extend black tabs by pulling tan collar toward tube. Press connector collar down firmly to ensure that it is fully connnected.
It's sort of like a childproofed plug and socket. Pull back on the collar and push in the olug. Not hard at all once you've done it the first time.
Make sure you put the lid on the recovery tank correctly so you have suction. Attach whatever brush you want to use on the other end until the tab locks into place.
Sometimes you have to bleed the air from the line by turning on the cleeaner and letting it **** against your hand or hard surface for 15 seconds before its ready to use. This gets the solution to flow to the tool.

The hose hooks into the dirt bucket on the front where a clear plastic block sets. Put the hose in that slot and then hook the tube for the water at the top of the hood.
