Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
After steam cleaning my living
room rug, I tried to remove the tank cap which is now stuck.
Clockwise or counter-clockwise, it rotates with difficulty (as it alwasy has), but it will NOT COME OFF! I've had this unit close to ten years and this has NEVER happened before.
How can I remove the tank cap, please?
Thank you for any solution you may provide. Joe
I had the same problem. I was able to use two butter knifes (using dull edges) to 1. pry up cap slightly and 2. pull gasket over lip of cap
I then worked the gasket off by lifting the cap right behind where I was removing the gasket.
Once the gasket was off, I was able to remove the cap easily.
I then put the gasket back on, undamaged, and could use like normal.
The difference between the lock and unlock position is only around 20-30 degrees.

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE
Type of Water Cleaning Frequency
Soft water every 80 brew cycles, Hard water every 40 brew cycles
Your espresso maker may be delimed using one quart of white household vinegar. Clean the water tank first, following steps l-5:
1. Make sure the steam control knob is in the center off position and that the plug is disconnected from the electrical outlet.
2. If the machine is cool and the pressure has been released, remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of undiluted white household vinegar into the water tank.
3. Screw on the pressure cap and allow machine to sit overnight with the vinegar solution in the water tank.
4. Remove pressure cap and discard vinegar through the top opening of the espresso maker.
5. Rinse the water tank thoroughly with tap water, repeating this step twice.
To wash internal parts:
Make sure you clean the inside of the water tank first. Remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of fresh white household vinegar into the water tank. Screw the pressure cap back on top of the water tank. Make sure the cap is on tight. Insert the filter holder into the brew head and place the glass decanter with lid on the drip tray. Plug the machine into the electrical outlet and turn the power switch on. An indicator light on the power switch will tell you the machine is on. Place a cup with cold water under the steam nozzle. When vinegar begins to flow into the decanter, insert the nozzle into the water and open the steam nozzle slowly by turning the steam control knob downward. After a few seconds, close the steam nozzle by turning the knob back up to center. This will clean any residue left in the nozzle from frothing milk. When all the vinegar has been pumped into the decanter and the flow has stopped, turn the power switch to the center off position and allow the machine to cool. Repeat steps 1-7 twice using only tap water to rinse any remaining traces of vinegar out of the machine.
1. Pour warm white vinegar in the decanter and let soak for 20 minutes.
2. Discard the vinegar, Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a
soft cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners.
