Does not suck when upright

Just changed the filters & i'm not sure if this is the reason. The hoover will not **** from the base just the nozzle part. There doesn't seem to be a blockage and it seems to be something to do with the round part near the base as its feeling too hot.

If it\'s in the full upright position then it is designed to change the airflow from the base to the nozzle. Likewise if it is only slightly out of the full upright lock position it will suck through the base and not the nozzle.

Hope this helps.

How do I fix my hoover that is not sucking up anything?

With your model tempo, the hose needs to be connected to the tube in the back (should have a door cover that flips open). Also check the suction path and change the bags or filters if needed

Just seems to blow bits around rather than suck

Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum.

There are a few things that may be causing your vacuum to lose suction. When filters need to be washed or changed, this may cause a loss in suction. Depending on the use of your vacuum, filters need to be changed every 3 to 6 months. If your unit has washable filters, these should be cleaned every 2 to 4 weeks, to maintain the highest filtration and suction in your unit.

If the filters have been properly changed and/or washed, the problem may be caused by a clog in your floor nozzle hose. Most upright units have short hose that connect the floor base to the motor, this hose can easily get clogged and cause loss of suction. You may check the hose by un-clipping it from your unit and cleaning the inside with a damp cloth.

If the problem still persists, you may need to check your unit's brushroll, also known as roller brush or agitator. Check to see if your brushroll is spinning properly, if it has any hair strands tangled or any debris remains that is preventing it from running properly.

Vacuum not clogged but has low suction

Check all the pipes, there could be something stuck in them which hasn't come out.
Also check the base of the vacuum if there is something stuck in the base.
Lastly check if there are any leaks in the pipes.
Also check the suction without using the handle, by pulling the pipe in your hand and see if it has more suction.

Its blowing instead of sucking

Make sure the removable panel in front of the recovery tank is pushed down tight. I had the same problem and that's all it took.

  • Check to make sure that the lower dirty water lid is installed and secure and not cracked.
  • Check to make sure the front duct panel is installed on the dirty water tank (this will transition the water from the front nozzle into the tank)
  • Check the filter in the dirty tank lid, clean if necessary
  • Remove the lower tank and look at the motor cover, locate a round hole, you should see a black ring (gasket).
  • with the lower tank removed, turn the machine on to check suction at the round hole, if OK then your problem will be with one of the above reasons

Dirty water is leaking back out

After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to to download one for cleaning directions.

Won't suck up water from floor

1. Check all the tubes from the nozzle to the collection tank and make sure they are not clogged up. I've had tht happen pretty bad before. 2. Check the squeegee. If it is damaged or torn, replace it.
