Tank Cap is stuck

Hi,

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.

I need to know why the Hoover Max Extreme keeps telling me t check the tank?


Hi! The solution and water goes in the top tank. Dirty water is suctioned into the bottom tank as you're scrubbing your floors. To fill the clean water tank, remove the clean water tank cap. The cap serves as a measuring cap for the solution. Fill the cap with Hoover carpet washer solution to the fill line. Pour detergent into tank. Fill the rest of the clean water tank with hot tap water and twist the cap back on. You are now ready to clean. Hope this helps!

Bissell instruction manuals


The instructions tell you to clean filters after each use. Check the User's Guide for specifics. Quick guide though. Water tank Cap: Under the cap is filter (looks like a screen) remove, clean, replace. Locate the Flow Indicator: turn it counter-clockwise to remove the cap. Lift out the rotor and the filter underneath, Clean and reinstall in reverse order. That should fix the problem. Consumer Care phone number is listed in the User's Guide.

Deliming

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.

Decanter cleaning

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.

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

No Water


Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

Not sucking up dirty water


The F5914 has a lid that must be engaged with the tank in order for the suction to reach the floor. Gently lift the front of the lid on the tank and if it lifts up, you haven't engaged the two tabs on the tank into the lid. Remove the lid and make sure the tabs on the tank fit into the grooves on the lid and snap it closed. This should solve your problem. Also, make sure that the removable duct in the front of the tank is in place. It is removed when the hose is used, but must be replaced when the machine is used on the carpet.
