SOURCE: will not spray water

After the last use did you run a FULL tank of HOT water throught he machine to clear the lines and the pump? If not the soap has clogged one of the two. If it is the lines simply remove them (one at a time is less confusing) clear them and all is good. If it is the pump (white L shaped object back left corner of machine as you face it) you will have to go to a local vacuum repair shop and order the part.

SOURCE: Hoover Steamvac hose won't spray water

http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf


Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.

GOODLUCK!!!!

SOURCE: My Hoover SteamVac Max Extract 77's dirty water

There are several possibilities for low pick up. The most common problem is that the lid is not correctly seated on the recovery (lower) tank. It is also possible that the rubber seal on the motor standpipe is out of place. The round tube on the bottom of the tank sits against the seal. Remove the tank and look for a large rubber ring on top of a plastic pipe. A less common issue is damage to the rug nozzle because the screws holding it against the carpet have been broken loose by dropping the shampooer on it's nose.

SOURCE: i cant get the brushes

Remove the brush assembly and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole and be sure it turns. If it is seized up, the turbine assembly will require replacement. If it turns, be sure the brush control is set to the brush position and the filter is clean. The filter may be on top behind a clear plastic cap, or underneath in red plastic holder depending on the model. The brush will also not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle released and tilted back.

Hoover f7458-900 leaking when placing tank on


Hello! Test the clean water tank to see if it is leaking. Fill the clean water tank with water on both sides. Hold the tank up and observe if water leaks from the valves underneath the tank. If either of the valves are leaking the clean water tank will need to be replaced. To order a replacement tank follow this link > Search Results. If the tank is not leaking, but the cleaner leaks when the tank is placed on it, this may indicate an internal issue with your pump. We would recommend taking the cleaner to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center to you. > Service Center Locator Hope this helps!

My max extract 77 hoover wont spray


Make sure all water lines are not clogged with anything 1st. Then check to see if the switch/lever or button that actuates the spray is functioning/working. If it's a mechanical switch/lever etc, see if you can take it off and clean it thoroughly and check to make sure there are no broken parts. If it's an electrical switch/button or lever, you need to check and make sure it's clean, and all the contacts to wires are NOT broken or damaged. You may have to replace parts if they don't function.

My Hoover max extract Spin scrub FH50220 is leakiing bad what can I do


You'll have to find out where it's leaking! Its not real hard. I will help you!

1. Fill the clean water tank. Check that the valve on this tank doesn't let water through when not on the machine. If it does this the tank is the problem.
2. Take off the 4-6 phillips screws holding the hood on to the machine. They will be on each corner underneath. Be Gentle! Do not break any of the plastic parts.
3. Check where the clean water comes to a L valve. This valve is a very common problem. Place the water tank on the machine. DO NOT hold the handle down. Use paper towel to check for wet spots if you can't see where it is leaking. It should be fairly obvious.
4. If the water is coming from the "back" of the machine or the handle pry the cover off the inside of the handle revealing the hoses. The water release valves may be leaking. Be sure to check all hoses for cracks or breaks. Simply find the water.. and trace it back.

90% of the time it is the L valve which looks like this:

Carefully put the machine back together not forgetting anything and test!

Good Luck!!

I can't get my Hoover max extract platinum to


First this is complicated to diagnose with it not being in front of me. Where i would start if i were you is make sure it is all together correctly or simply take it apart and put it back together make sure all is there and seated proper and try it again also if you feel no resistance or hear no clicking sound from the on switch it just may be bad.

Do you put water in the big compartment under the solution compartment when wet washing your floor


You put water and Hoover Cleaning Solution into the top tank. Push down on the release button at the top of the tank just below and in front of the handle. The cap is also your measuring cup. Fill it with the Hoover Cleaner Concentrate. Pour that into the tank and fill it to the fill line with warm water.
The dirty water will be extracted into the bottom tank.
