Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had the same problem.

Judging by the interference between the vacuum hose and the "dirty water return" hose, there is NO WAY those two hoses can exist together in that housing without causing the dirty water return hose can last for many full bends of the handle. We opted to not repair our unit, but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

SOURCE: Hoover steamvac won't spray water/cleaning solution

Clogging of the pump that sprays water/cleaning solution is very common in Hoover and Bissell Steam Vacs. Try running a cycle of 1part vinegar or CLR to 3 parts warm, distilled water through the vacuum pumps. The heads get clogged with soap and the water pumps get clogged at the opening of the flash heater due to minerals in hard water. If you want to extend the life of your steam vac, don't use the heater unless you are using distilled water. This can get expensive, so I recommend not using the heater.

Testimonial: "The return hose was split, but it would have been nice if the advice also explained how to check for the split in the return hose. Thanks though!"

Can't get lid off of water and shampoo tank of a hoover steam vac


You can get the tank off the machine correct? Pull down on the black handle.

The lid is the black circular cap on top of the tank. It only moves a bout a quarter of a turn then pulls straight up. If it's still stuck run it under hot water to loosen up any residue buildup.

Hoover steamvac spin brush puts out water, won't pull it back up. Checked all parts, no cracks. Cleaned filter.


Check for the front panel duct located on the lower tank front. this is the part you need to remove to attach the hose. also check to make sure the lid is on and secure on the lower tank. remove the lower tank and look on top of the motor cover toward the left front corner you should see a round black gasket on a pipe. if not there, this will cause poor suction.

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.

One cause is the filter in the dirty water tank lid is pushed up too high, it needs to have a gap of 1/4 in or so. So check it, if it is up all the way, pull it down some.

Won't suck up the water


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter. Or the lid for the dirty water tank is not locked down all the way around.
