This is a common problem for these units, and is easily fixed.

Bad connection:
You may need to push harder on the coupling when attaching it to the machine

A leaky Valve
Manytimes the Valve you connect to can bust or crack where you cannot see it.
Remove the hood and inspect valve. (six screws on underside)

Leaky hose
The hoses that run to the Valve you connect to can come loose or crack.
Remove the hood and inspect hoses. (six screws on underside)


This machine may be leaking the whole time you use it, and you my just not be noticing.
If you are in a northern climate, freezing machines in garages or cars is the most common cause.

Rug doctor deep carpet cleaner leaks the clean water solution out the bottom so quickly I can only clean a very small section of carpet per tank. You can watch it pour out


You have a crack or hole in the container holding the clean water solution. Also check any hoses going in and out for integrity.

How do you attach the upholstry attachment to your hoover steamvac


The hose hooks into the dirt bucket on the front where a clear plastic block sets. Put the hose in that slot and then hook the tube for the water at the top of the hood.

Water leaks out under the unit when using the upholstery attachment?


You may wish to check and see if the leak is where the small water supply hose is plugged in to the cleaner base. That connecction supplies water from the product, to the spray end on the upholstery hose.

Hoover Steam Vac leaks like a sieve


I have the same problem with my hoover steam vac, different model but same problem. So I have had it for 2 years and never used the attachments because the thing leaked out the bottom when i tried. So today I tried to find a solution online and found nothing. So I started toying with the thing and found a solution for my model and I hope it will work for everyone else. I don't have a stair attachment so this goes for the upholstery cleaning attachment. I noticed right where my upholstery attachment connects to get soap, there is a second hole that is covered by a white rubber seal when the cover for the connection area is closed. I put a plastic bag, or anything to seal it, into this hole to make a tight seal. Tried the machine and worked like a champ. So Would be nice if hoover supplied a plug for that, but oh well worked for me hope it works for others with a hoover steam vac.

Shampoo attachment


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier. Now, put the shampoo gun on the end of the hose and you're ready to go.

Upholstry set up for ultimate g kirby.


Remove the entire cloth bag assembly and put the hose on the side where the bag came from. Remove the power nozzle and put the intake guard onto the front. (this is in your attachment set...the only one with little hooks that sit on the bar in front) You can change from the long handle to the short if you'd like also. You get the handles off by pushing the "seatbelt button" located at the rear bottom of the handle and pulling the handle straight up and out. Now, put your spray gun on the hose. Don't forget the little suds nozzle that goes on the end of the spray gun. I like to use a half and half solution of Kirby shampoo and water in the gun. It makes a nice dry foam that only wets the surface of the furniture. If you use more water, it takes longer to dry.

If you need a manual (book or DVD) for your Kirby, try this link....

Upholstry attachment


Check to make sure that the hose hasn't cracked, where it hooks up near the motor. If so, replace the hose.
