Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
The red floating ball that should pop up to indicate the dirty water tank is full pops up within 30 seconds of turning on the machine, despite the tank being empty.
You need to clean the debris channel. Put the machine on a waist high flat surface open it and remove the dirty water container. You will see three vertical screws which lock the scroll above the motor to the clear plastic panel at the front of the machine. Open these screws and remember which one belongs where. To the left of the scroll, there is a black horizontal screw which should also be removed. If you look closely, you will see the right hand of the first three screws (brushes face to your right hand) has also released the plexiglass (clear plastic screen where you see the dirt and soap flowing at the left side. Now put the machine on its side and look at the front edge of the plexiglass just ahead of the brushes. There are two screws which have to be removed - one on each side and bingo the plexiglass shape lifts clear. Clean out the muck, check the scroll channel for similar muck and reassemble.
The muck is plugging the dirt path and fooling the red float that the tank is full.
Re assemble the reverse of the disassembly procedure. Do not use a power screwdriver as you will likely shear the screw heads.

Occassionly my does that. I just keep turning off and on until it stops. I would not remove the black mesh if I was you. Your black mesh may just need cleaning. I have a dog and my mesh always have hair on it. I believe that mesh serves as a filter. May not be allowing the correct air flow because it is dirty.

I seem to have found a solution to the red ball float popping up.
I removed the black mesh that covers the red ball float and just left it off. Without it the Steamvac works like new,,, although I don't know why this works but it does,,,

Don't permanently remove the filter, instead, cut approximately 3/4 of an inch off the OPEN end of it and put it back on.
