Hoover steam vac will not turn on.

I was using the steam vac and stopped to refill the tank and now it will not turn on. I tried 3 different outlets, tried turning it on with the handle released and not released. What is the problem?

Hoover steam vac dual v carpet cleaner has stopped dispensing soap. Water is still flowing fine

You probably have a solenoid valve which has failed and will not open. This will require replacement of the valve. For temporary use you can mix a soap solution and put it in the rinse tank. The correct mix is 5 ounces of Hoover shampoo to a gallon of hot water.

If the cleaner will not turn on at all, you could have one of several problems:
(1) Bad foot switch
(2) Bad power cord, or

The unit would need disassembled and tested with a continuity meter to determine the part that failed.

I only used it once or twice and then the suction stopped and I can't figure out what went wrong. Hoover Steam Vac

This model has suction as soon as you turn on the machine. make sure the lower tank lid is on properly and the tank is latched in place. check the hose attachment door if that may be open. There is a float in the tank that will stop suction whenit is time to change the water, make sure the tank is empty.
