Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

Open Question

Hooking up the upholstery attachment.

I have been trying to hook up the upholstery attachment to clean my chair. I have no problem attaching the hose to the cleaner and the brushes spin and the vaccuum works but I can't figure out how to get the water to spray. There is a small tube attached near where it attaches to the body of the cleaner and I know it is there for some reason, I just can't figure out what that reason is. Is there anyway you can tell me how to hook the upholstery attachment so that I can clean my furniture?

I can’t figure out how to attach the hose to clean furniture
don’t know how to hook up attachment to clean upholstery.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The manufacturer brand name is Hoover – most on board upholstery machines have an on board hose attachment and any type of upholstery tool would hook on to the end of the suction hose and would be controlled by the trigger assm on the machine itself and some upholstery machines have a revolving brush that would hook up to the end of the attachment hose and you can spray the part you want to clean and then use the straight suction upholstery tool to agitate the fabric and then vacuum us the excess water. So feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or contact the Hoover manufacturer listed below;

Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499

Thanks, Don – The Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: I have a Bissell Proheat

Hello,

I have a Bissell "Little Green" cleaning machine that acted like yours. I found several clogs in the fluid system. The power for the fluid in my unit is provided by a small AC motor independent from the vacuum motor attached to a small plastic pump. This pump then fed into the input of the heater. Inside the heater is a sort-of mirror-image, redundant labyrinth that the fluid passes through before it exits. My heater was completely blocked on both sides, and exhibited signs of corrosion. My choice was to disable the heater and to instead hook its output line straight to the pump. I also found clogs in the fluid line, particularly where there were bends. One of the clogs was where the vacuum and fluid line made a right angle turn out of the base of the machine. The other was in the trigger handle itself in a jog of the small line that connects the valve to the spray nozzle connector.

I would suggest examining the trigger handle first. The only thing to watch for is the position of a small flat metal spring with a square hole in the center that lives between the trigger and the valve (which is also sprung).

I made good use of some slightly smaller standard aquarium air line so I could blow water and air through without having to actually taste the internal lines of the machine.

My new resolution is to run clean water through the fluid system before putting it to bed!

Check the pump belt, just take that small door of and you can see the belt. If it looks ok, then probably need a new pump.

Why is water pouring out the bottom when I try to use upholstery attachment?


On many hoover models the hose attaches to the vacuum and is held on by a clip on the hose assembly. There may be some damage to your hose or the place where it attaches to the machine. Inspect these areas trying to locate the point of the leak.

Changed hose on carpet cleaner and it wont pick up the water


If you are unable to pick up water from the carpet after using the hose attachment, is is usually due to one of two reasons.
1 - The duct on the front of the dirty water tank has not been put back in place after using the hose. It is a square plastic piece about the size of a slice of sandwich bread.
2 - The lid is not properly seated on the tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front edge in place before hooking the latch at the rear. This also applies when using the hose.

How to hook up tool to clean upholstery


Keep your upholstered furniture looking fresh by vacuuming it regularly with the upholstery tool attached to your vacuum's hose. Prevent the fabric from fading (or at least delay this) by keeping your furniture out of direct sunlight -- close blinds, shades or curtains when the sun shines most directly through windows closest to the upholstery. And remove stains by blotting them with a dry cleaning solvent. Before steam cleaning your upholstered furniture, read the piece's cleaning code label to determine whether or not it is safe to do so. Then rent or buy a steam cleaner (also called an extractor) and follow the directions below.

  1. Rent a steam cleaner or purchase one; buy steam cleaner solution.
  2. Step 2 Vacuum the upholstery on the furniture you wish to steam clean; use the upholstery attachment to most effectively **** up loose debris.
  3. Step 3 Test the steam-cleaner solution on the upholstery in an inconspicuous place to ensure the color won't be steamed out or drastically altered.
  4. Step 4 Attempt to remove any stains with a stain removal or dry cleaning solution. Follow the directions that come with the product you choose for the best results, and allow the stain remover to dry before you begin steam cleaning.
  5. Step 5 Remove cushions and, if necessary, arm covers.
  6. Step 6 Gently apply the steaming water and cleaning solution in straight lines across the upholstery one section at a time.
  7. Step 7 Use the cleaning extension on the steam cleaner to **** up as much water as possible. The dirt will come out with the water.
  8. Step 8 Clean one side each cushion (then allow it to dry) before cleaning the other side. If the cushions are permanently attached to the furniture, clean them last.
  9. Step 9 Allow the furniture to dry completely before repeating the steam-cleaning process or replacing the cushions.

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.

No suction for upholstery hose


http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf try priming your hose

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.
Follow the instructions on pages 14 and
15 for the appropriate cleaning task.

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.

Furniture cleaning isn't a science: try out a few techniques before choosing the one that is right for your belongings. This step-by-step guide explains how to clean a sofa:
  1. Before using any upholstery cleaning products, vacuum the sofa or chair first to remove as much surface dirt and dust as possible. Be sure to use the correct attachments to avoid damage to the material - a soft brush attachment is ideal.
  1. Spot Clean. Using baby wipes or vinegar poured onto a strong microfiber cloth, apply to any obvious stains, wiping gently as you go. Remember to test the upholstery cleaning products on an inconspicuous area first.
  1. Overall Clean. Using soapy water and a microfibre cloth, gently wipe your sofa with the solution, allowing it to soak into the fabric and tackle the dirt beneath the surface. You only want to use a very small amount of water - don't saturate the material.
  1. Dry. Some people use a hairdryer to quickly dry a sofa, but allowing it to dry naturally is always the better option, if you have the time. To speed things up, open windows and allow the breeze to help with the drying process.
