Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
I JUST NOW EMPTIED DIRTY WATER FROM BOTTOM TANK AND FILLED TOP TANK W/CLEAN WATER AND SOLUTION. I HAVE JUST CLEANED A ROOM AND READY TO START ON ANOTHER. MY HOOVER SPINSCRUB HAS BEEN WORKING GREAT....BUT NOW THERE IS AIR BLOWING OUT AND IT IS NOT SUCKING UP THE DIRTY WATER. WHAT NOW.....
ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN

This happened to me and Hoovers customer service sucked. Anyway, after alot of tinkering around and seeing this solution, I took the sponge in the dirty water bucket off. It worked! So my sponge was blocked, bonedry and dirty. I washed and cleaned it. Lo and behold, it worked. Save me a long trip to drive to the hoover store 40 miles away.

Yes mine wasn't sucking water up at all and i cleaned the mesh filter and also made sure that the seal on the lid on the dirty water container was sealed all the way around (black gasket makes contact with clear plastic). This solved the problem!

Cleaning the filter did the trick for me

Happened to me. take out the dirty water container and try to fix the top again. i do it buy pushing the oposite sides (from the latch) onto to the tub first. this helped me.
