Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

No suction in new Hoover Steam Vacs

I bought a Hoover Steam Vac (the Hoover I formerly had was wonderful!!!)and the first time I used it there was almost no sucking power. It was late so I just put it aside. Today my daughter brought her brand new Hoover Steam Vac SpinScrub for me to use and I'm finding the same thing. What am I doing wrong???? It's hard for me to believe here's two new machines with cracked hoses!!

Every time I use my New Hoover steam vac it leaks all the time I've tried every thing, I even bought a new tank same problem, I'm not taking it to be repaired its the 3rd one thats done it an


After the second time I would have asked for a refund. Maybe you need to do some diagnostic work.

1. Does it leak while sitting unplugged?
2. Does it leak while plugged in but not being operated?
3 Does it leak when the solution is above or below a certain level.
4. Are you over filling it?
5. Does it leak only when you pull the trigger? (valve problem)

Keep asking yourself questions to discover where and why it's leaking.

Good luck.

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.

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.

Automatic "shut off" not turning off


Check the filter in the tank, if a dual V model you will have a screen, if not a dual V move the foam filter down about 1/4" to help.The lid on either model needs to be securely in place, as well as locking the left and right latches. On the Dual V model, check the hose door on the front.

Hi, i have a hoover steam vac agilty. the brushes on the bottom front quit spinning. they are not locked up as i can freely turn them by fingers. is there a belt that i need to replace? if so, how do i get...


The brushes on all hoover steam vacs are air opperated it uses the suction of the vacuum motor to spin a turbine and in turn spin the brushes. Most likely that path of air is clogged with hair or carpet fuzz. On the top of the machine there is a little clear cover undr that cover there is a screen which keeps that hair for entering the turbine kinda like you clothes dryer lint trap. Take the cover off and clean that screen this should help. If you have any other questions or need parts for that machine or any other visit www.stevessewandvac.com

Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I can not seem to get the attachment for the upholstery cleaner to operate what am i doing wrong????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The attachment works on the suction from the Hoover Steam Vac and it’s either a straight suction tool or a revolving brush, check the front of the machine to see if the is a switch to turn on and odd, also before you attach the upholstery tool check the end of the hose for suction, it may be that your upholstery tool may be clogged or the brushes are not spinning and a part may be broken. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Upholstery conversion


Take out the duct in front of the tank (#3), the hose end will have a duct on it that you insert in its place. This provides the suction for the hose. Don't forget to put that duct you took out back in place, or you won't have suction when you use the steam cleaner.
