Steam Vac Is Not Dispensing Soap

My steam vac is not dispensing soap. There are no clogs in the soap tank. Is there a way to run a pipe cleaner through the small hoses between the soap dispenser and where the soap exits?

Try using a rubber tipped air nozzle and compressed air at the end of the soap dispenser line. Brief intermittent blasts of air should take care of it.

Either you need a new tank, or there is a problem with the platform that the tank sits on. The tank has to sit correctly or it won't work.

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.

Hi there,

Just a quick clarification please. Will the water not spray in both the attachment hose as well as the floor part? Or does it spray in one or the other. You suspect that it may have a clogged line, is the machine doing anything in particular that makes you think a clog?

Thanks,
CJ

You do not have the needed vacuum on the dirty water intake. Possible causes are:
1. No adapter sleeve in the back of the dirty water tank (the one that you remove to put the fabric hose adapter in)
2. The dirty water top is not sealed (cracked, not on correctly)
3. The intake shoot at the front of the unit is clogged with dirt/hair.

REMEMBER: This is NOT a vacuum cleaner - it is not designed to remove hair and dust.... ONLY wet dirt. If you fail to vacuum floors just before steam cleaning, the unit will clog up in minutes!!

I have a Hoover STeam Vac Dual V. Replaced the water tank-no problem. but water still pours out through the bottom. when idle, when off, when running. dont need to press the lever. Help!


Te dual V models have an electric pump and 2 solenoids that control the soap and water to dispense. The problem you describe, sounds like the water solenoid is stuck open. and would need to be serviced by a repair shop.

Cleaner willnot dispense water and vaccum it again. Soap dispense fine. would like a owners manual.


sounds like you have a clog in the waterline, or a pinched hose.
Locate the water line hose, disconnect, and blow through with can of compressed air.
If nothing goes through...you have a blockage/pinch.

Try and trace the hose back from the brushes to the pump. The hose could either be disconnected, kinked, or clogged.

Good luck - Tech101

NOT DISPENSING


Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You cannot replace the spring loaded value on the soap dispenser – it is a whole assembly and would need to replace the entire tank, you can buy them new or sometimes a local vacuum dealer may have a good used one on hand and that would work as well – check the yellow pages for a local vacuum dealer or Hoover dealer for replacement of the part.

HOOVER STEAM CLEANER PROBLEM


The soap dispenser is supposed to be attched to the water tank. That grey piece, if it is round with 2 small ears on it is the metering plate, it controls the flow of water. It sits on the table that the tank sits on, insert it into the hole and turn to lock it in place.
