Question about Hoover FH50005 Quick and Light Steam Vacuum Cleaner

2 Answers

I have a hoover quick and light. I just recently used a homemade cleaner. Dawn soap and vinegar. I was cleaning my carpet and all of a sudden the machine got really quiet and stopped sucking up the soap. The brush still spins at normal speed. Any suggestions? Wondering if it is a mechanical issue since it runs quiet now. I think the only noise coming from it is the brush spinning. Also, does the homemade carpet solution have anything to do with it?

Soap and water probably got sucked into the motor. I'd avoid using your homemade solution in the Quick and Light, maybe just use vinegar.

Check height adjuster first to make sure that it is still functional. If the brush is too low to rug, it can cause some skipping as you pull the vac. to you. Have you tried to vacuum at a different angle to see if skipping stops? If your height adjuster checks out okay, it could be that your rugs may need a good steam cleaning. I have two dogs, and after awhile, the oil residue from there dander collects in the rug which is unavoidable after a long period of time with regular vacuuming. The carpet starts to mat and that's when I experienced my vacuum cleaner starting to skip. After a good professional steam cleaning of the carpets were performed, the vacuum cleaner stopped skipping. Hope this was informational.

Why doesn't the water pick up on my carpet shampooer???


Hi Julie! If the cleaner is not picking up the dirty water this usually means something is not sealed off properly. Try these steps below to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank. Recline the handle & let the handle lie down on the floor.
2. Remove the dirty water tank. Check that the dirty water tank cap is on the dirty water tank and tightened closed.
3. Clear the filter screen of any hair or debris.
4. Remove the nozzle. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.
5. Located on the machine behind the nozzle is a 2nd filter screen. Clean it of any hair or debris.
6. Replace the nozzle.
7. Replace the dirty water tank. Press down on all sides so that it is flush to the cleaner base.

Give it a try! The suction should be restored to your cleaner. If not I have included a video link where you may view these instructions. Hope this helps! Loss of Suction Won pick up Hoover Max Extract 77 FH50230 FH50222...

Why would hoover carpet cleaner make a loud noise, start smoking and now won't come on.


I'm afraid you burned a coil in the motor. And accidentally it stopped while that coil is between the contact brushes. Or one of the (or both) brushes are worn.

How to use the upholstery attachment for hoover max extra 60 carpet cleaner?


Hey there! The nozzle/valve that releases the solution from the hose may be clogged and not closing off to stop the solution flow. You can try soaking the trigger end in warm water for a few hours to unclog it. Also make sure you are inserting the hose back into the hose slot in the back of the cleaner. If the cleaner is still dispensing from both the hose and the cleaner, your nozzle/valve assembly may need to be replaced. To order a replacement nozzle/valve assembly follow the link below.
