Question about iRobot 5800 Scooba Vacuum

1 Answer

Dirty tank has no water after the whole cycle.

I think there is something wrong with the "sucking back" feature of my scoobe cuz there is no water in the dirty tank at the end of the cycle. The floor also has streaks. Can anyone help me? I've just changed a new battery too.

Turn the tank over. It's transparent on the underside, and there are two oval-shaped openings that stick out more than an inch, located toward the middle. On the far right and far left sides, next to each oval opening, there is another opening. (These are oddly shaped-- one round, one large and curved like Roomba's filter.) Rinse all four of these openings really thoroughly with warm water. The water should go in one opening and come out one of the others. (This should happen when you put water in every one of the four ports.) Do not be surprised if you get clots of dirt out of there. This is generally what keeps Scooba from being able to pick up water. Then, if this works for you, make the tank rinse part of your regular cleaning routine and it shouldn't happen again.

Hoover steam vac deep cleaner not ucking up


Hi! If your cleaner is not picking up this could mean that something is not sealed off properly. Try these brief trouble-shooting steps to restore suction to your SteamVac.


1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.
Give it a try! The suction should be restored. Hope this helps!

My steam vac was working...i thought the dirty water was full but it didn't make the hi pitched noise now that i think about it.....now it is not sucking up the dirty water.....i checked to make sure...


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

I have never used a shampooer before when I use it it says to empty out dirty water. I don't have any left. My tank is empty. Am I doing something wrong.


Suggest that you do the following.
Remove the TOP ("Clean water") tank. Fill it 1/2 full of water. Put the top on the clean water tank and place it back on the machine.

Release the machine handle and remove the cover of the "dirty" water tank. Inspect the back of the tank to be sure that the vacuum adapter in located in the rear of the dirty water tank. If not-that is your problem. If yes, restore the top to the dirty water tank.

Power the machine on.
On a kitchen floor, power the machine on. Pull the trigger and hold it for about 30 seconds. You should see water gathering around the brushes. If not, that is a problem.

With water around the brushes, release and lower the handle and and move the machine over the water. It should vacuum the water into the dirty water tank.
Is all of that happening?

Doesn't return the dirty water to the tank, after apply the water


My Bissel has been having problems sucking the dirty water back into the tank. It's like it works for half a dozen uses and then just stops working. After I turn it on and off for a couple of hours trying to troubleshoot the issues it just starts working out of the blue again and sucks up the dirty water. I know there is a yellow stopper that goes up and can stop the flow but that's down and not the issue here.

Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

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 on th e tank.
