SOURCE: my hoover floormate won;t suck/ suction anything!

Things to check: Check again that the pipes aren't clogged. Check all the way through from where the muck goes in to where it's supposed to end up, paying particular attention to places where the pipe narrows, goes round a bend, or changes material. Check the machine doesn't just need emptying. Wet/dry machines usually have some sort of float operated stop valve to stop you flooding the motor when you've filled it with water. Make sure this isn't stuck shut. Check everything from the impellor right back to where the muck goes in is airtight. It doesn't take a huge hole to lose you a lot of suction. Pay particular attention to places that are meant to come apart routinely, and places where hoses join to hard fittings. If in doubt, run the machine and listen for sucking noises. If there's a filter between the fan and the air outlet (there usually is) make sure it is clean Assuming the motor is running, check it is turning the fan impeller. Hopefully, one or other of these will get you somewhere. A.

SOURCE: No suction

I had a a low suction problem. Mine was easily fixed. Stand in front of the machine. When you remove the recovery tank there are the notches on the front of the tank that fit down into the machine. In the right hole in which the right notch fits, there should be a black rubber washer on the machine. Mine somehow came off and feel into the machine therefore there was practically no suction as the seal was not airtight. I only discovered this when I took apart the machine and found it floating around. Just something to check.

SOURCE: Problems with the Hoover Steam vac Heated carpet cleaner

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.

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!!!!

No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

My hoover max extract dual v stopped sucking up the water on just its second use. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?


The most likely problem is there is a restriction somewhere or a suction leak. Check to make sure you have good suction where the waste water tank fits down onto the machine. Make sure the lid is on the waste water tank and follow the flow of suction from the machine through the waste tank down to the floor and look for debris clogs or any area where there may be a suction leak. If you have good suction coming from the machine the problem has to be somewhere between there and where the water is being sucked off of the floor.

Carpet cleaner will not suction up solution


Check for any cloggs in the hose lines. And make sure the recovery tank is not filled. Close to %95 of carpet cleaners have a shut off float of some sort which will close off the suction to the head of the machine if the water lever gets too high. Also check the shut off float to make sure it is clear of any build up. If the float is clogged, it will keep the suction closed off from the head. If this is the case, clean the float off and it should open the suction path.

My Hoover carpet cleaner does not **** up water.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Usually on the Hoover’s the have suction when you remove the recovery tank and from there you need to back track to see if there is a clog of some type or obstruction that is blocking the carpet cleaner from picking up the excess water, if you find that it is from the bottom, use and old wire coat hanger and create a hook on the end and that way you can pull out and remove any obstruction that might be in the way in order to get suction again, or the recovery tank might need a new gasket or it’s not sitting on the vacuum correctly. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
