Question about Hoover F5906-900 Upright Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

Where does other end of hose go

I have a hoover steam vac model F5915-900.

I placed one end of hose into recovery tank as manual illustrates.

manual does not illustrate where other end of hose goes. I turn on vacuum and it sucks are through hose. assume it should be sucking air through portion of steamvac that is in contact with carpet.

inspection of steamvac reveals no aperture or connecting port for other end of hose.

I feel intense rage toward hoover.

You're quite right . . . the manual doesn't show where the other end of the hose goes, which frustrated me as well. I finally found another pic of the cleaner (I think it may have been the one on the box) which revealed the answer. If you're facing the rear of the machine, there is a plastic "hose clip" on the right side of the machine (it looks like the letter "c"), and the "loose end" of the hose is snapped into place in that holder - it doesn't actually connect into an aperture (that end of the hose is just to place the little furniture brush on, if you use it). Once in place, the hose will actually kind of overlap itself and be held firmly in place against the side of the machine. Hope that helps - I too am not a fan of manuals that leave obvious questions unanswered.

Why will my hoover spin scrub steam vac upholstery attachment not suction?


With this model, check all hose connections and recovery tank lid. if you have good suction before you put on the tool it may be the tool that needs service. inspect the tube under the recovery tank for the round gasket and the filter inside the tank.

I have the hoover steam vac f5906900 and im just trying to use the detachment. I plugged in the water part but i cant get any suction. the water is spraying out that is all....help my dog **** on my bed...


Hi, The attachment hose also has to be plugged into the dirty water recovery tank. The other end of the hose which has the square plug, must go in the spot on the recovery tank where the water comes up from the floor. To do this, Remove the lid of the recovery tank, slide out the little rectangle (usually same color as the recovery tank) which is located just above the clear water channel from the floor there, and insert the square piece for the attachment hose. It should only fit in one way. Replace the lid to the tank and you should be ready to attack the ****. Good luck. Mark

Can't figure out how to get my hoover runabout steam vac to pick up


Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

Also be sure the recovery tank lid is properly aligned to the recovery tank.

If you are unsure about operation, please reference the following manual:

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.

Setting up for apolstery cleaning


Hoover Steam Vac F5853-900 Series 17.9

Remove the tank front panel by sliding it straight up. Replace panel with converter (located on end of hose, end is shaped like front panel that you slide out.Before connecting tube to cleaner, make sure black tabs are extended by pulling tan collar roward tube.Open door on hood labeled "Stair/Upholstery Cleaning Connection" Press round solution tube connector onto round projection inside door. Press connecator collar down firmly to ensure that it is fully connected.
When the solution tube is connected to the deep cleaner, the nozzle brushes will automatically be turned off and will not rotate when the deep cleaner is turned on even if the speed selector is in the HI oar LO position. For full suction, it is important that the recovery tank lid is properly secured before cleaning.The tank lid is replaced in a hinge-like manner. Position front of lid under tabs on front of tank. Rotate lid down onto tank. Make sure lid is secure on all sides before cleaning.Hope this helps.
Good Luck

All terrain steam vac


Try and trace the hose back from the brushes to the pump. The hose could either be disconnected, kinked, or clogged.

Good luck - Tech101

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.
