Question about Hoover Vacuums

2 Answers

I have a Hoover Steam Vac that is not sucking up water. I did all of the trouble shooting that is basic and still nothing. I am stuck. I have made sure the lid is on securely, the front plastic piece, cleaned the brushes. I was just using it the other day and it was fine. Checked to make sure the gasket was seated properly. The brushes are spinning. But it almost feels like air is blowing out not sucking in.

    Yes. Checked and rechecked. I am starting to wonder if it might be the gasket(s).

    I would suggest you need to be looking around the recovery tank area! I know you have done it already but it might be worth removing the tank and replacing again making sure everything clicks into place correctly and makes a good seal!

    Have you checked the red float disk is not stuck at the top (visible on recovery tank) this would cut the suction!

    Did. Nothing. I sent Hoover and email to see where I can find gaskets in my town. Will see if that works first. Everything else seems to be fine. But one gasket looks compressed.and showing signs of wear.

  • There a twist lever on the side to change from floor to tools. If "everything else works" then you have it on tools. Twist it back to floor and it will work.

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!

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

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.

Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub Carpet Cleaner won't...
Posted by hoofbeats1 on Jul 01, 2008
My machine is a little more than a year old. I have used it about 5 times. It started leaking the third time I used it. The fourth time I took it out, the brushes would not spin (I did clean them and rinse them after use each time).
Now the engine screams and won't **** anything up. Do you have any suggestions? My last Hoover Steam Vac was great and lasted for 3 years! Hi,
I have a Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 that the brushes won't spin. The lint screen is clean & the brushes switch is in the on position.
It dispenses & sucks up the cleaning solution & water; just no brush action. Help


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only thing that I can recommend is that you may have a bad switch, some vacs may have a broken belt or the drive mechanism inside the Hoover Dual V SteamVac F7425-900 in or by the brush assm section and is need of repair. Please check the trouble shooting section of the owner’s manual if you’re needing help and to save money. If you don’t have one then contact the Hoover factory cust serv. So, 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.

Hoover Upright Steam vac


Is there a float switch in the tank? Could be when the float rose up to a level it got stuck, stopping your machine.
