Question about Hoover F8100900 Upright WetDry Vacuum
We have a Hoover F8100900 which is about 3-1/2 years old. I had used it about a month ago, and although it was nosy, it worked well. When I tried to use it yesterday, it was again noisy, but now it does not suction the water with the cleaning solution back up into the dirty water tank. Any suggestions?

The recovery tank lid isn't locked down all of the way around. The foam filter on the inside of the tank lid is up too far, needs at leasat a 1/4 in gap from the top. The filter screen by thye indicator is clogged. Some have a duct that sits in front of the recovery tank, either it isn't there or not pushed down all of the way.

Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.

Fill the tank and determine if the plastic is leaking, or if the valves are leaking. if the tank is cracked, it would need replaced. There is an improved design now available.
You may cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil.
