It stopped steaming? what do I do to fix it?


Unsure what your water is like, yet minerals build up in the tubing. Best water to use in any electrical appliance is Distilled Water, doesn't have all those chemicals that clog waterways. Good Luck.

Steam coming out but no water is being distribued for the steam to dry it


If you have used it a lot and you have hard water... the calcium deposits will clog the water dispenser. That's what happened to mine. I cleaned it out with white vinegar and it started working fine. It's simply something clogged in the water dispenser.

Does not spray cleaner


It helps to always run hot water in the soap holding tank after you have cleaned the carpet to make sure the soap does not dry inside and clog. Make sure that the dirty tank water filter is clear of debris, I have noticed that if it is clogged it won't spray out solution. Another thing to try is, it usually will always spray out of handheld cleaning attatchment. steve

I have the steamtek steam cleaner for 5 months and it will no longer steam!


We had the same problem. I took the unit completely apart and it seems it doesn't like our hard water. I took off the head (one screw at the base and it slips off) and I put a tooth pick into the steamer hole to clean any clogs. Then I ran a cup of CLR through it with equal parts water and it runs fine but not as good as it did new. We are going to only run distilled water through it from now on. Hope this helps!

Hoover steamvac won't spray water/cleaning solution


Clogging of the pump that sprays water/cleaning solution is very common in Hoover and Bissell Steam Vacs. Try running a cycle of 1part vinegar or CLR to 3 parts warm, distilled water through the vacuum pumps. The heads get clogged with soap and the water pumps get clogged at the opening of the flash heater due to minerals in hard water. If you want to extend the life of your steam vac, don't use the heater unless you are using distilled water. This can get expensive, so I recommend not using the heater.

Does it matter what kind of cleaner I use on the Deep Cleaner Model F5821


Yes it does matter which cleaning solution that you use in your steam cleaner. If you use the wrong cleaning solution it may cause problems with the cleaning solution dispensary system. Different steam cleaners use different cleaning solutions. You should always use the steam cleaner solution for your specific cleaner. I have learned this the hard (and expensive) way.

Hard to recommend this but it will work in a pinch. You can use a small amount of liquid laundry detergent diluted with hot water (about 2 table spoons to a gallon) as a stand in for the real deal. DO NOT put the laundry soap solution into the cleaning solution reservoir (the wax content will clog the soap dispensary system). Lightly apply to the area to be shampooed (do not soak). I have used a plastic coffee can with holes poked in the lid like a watering can to apply the soap solution. Use the shampooer to do the scrubbing and remove soapy water from the shampooed area. Fill your soap reservoir with clean hot water. The laundry soap does most of its job during the rinse. Go over the shampooed area with the shampooer moderately soaking the shampooed area to with the hot rinse water. Remove as much of the rinse water as possible. Liquid laundry soap has a high wax content (makes your cloths soft) and if it is not rinsed thoroughly after it is dry the remaining wax will attract dirt faster than the surrounding areas. Other than that it works for a good stand in for the proper detergent in a pinch. As a bonus it smells great.

From what I understand as unorthodox as it is, it works well in small doses, and I don't believe that it causes any damage to the other parts of the steam cleaner as steam cleaners survive drawing up worse things into them than laundry soap.

I hope that you find this helpful

Good Luck!

No steam


I used the straw to prime the lines and 50/50 mix of vinager and water and it worked perfectly. I then mixed the water container with the same mix and ran it through the system. All works fine now.
