Check to make sure that the hose hasn't cracked, where it hooks up near the motor. If so, replace the hose.

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.

Will not spray water


After the last use did you run a FULL tank of HOT water throught he machine to clear the lines and the pump? If not the soap has clogged one of the two. If it is the lines simply remove them (one at a time is less confusing) clear them and all is good. If it is the pump (white L shaped object back left corner of machine as you face it) you will have to go to a local vacuum repair shop and order the part.

Hoover Portapower hose won't stay on, when it does poor suction.


In reply to the problem you have about the hose not staying attached very well, we had this problem years ago with one of our old cylinder vacs. Sometimes after several years of the hose connector being rotated to attach/remove it from the machine, the lugs that lock it into the hole can wear down or become mis-shapen as they are only made of plastic.

I have a UK model Hoover Portapower and luckily have never had this problem as I hardly remove the hose at all (except when emptying the bag). If you remove the hose from the machine and have a look at the connecting part of the hose where it attaches to the machine, there should be two lugs/clips either side of it. If these lugs look a bit mis-shapen or the plastic on them looks worn, then the hose will not fit the two slots either side of the hole on the inlet fully hence the hose being loose. The only way to cure this problem is either put a little bit of electrical tape on them which will stick the hose to the machine better as that's what we did. Overall though you are probably best replacing the hose for a new one if this is the case as these lugs will then be the correct shape to fit the machine properly on a brand new one :)

I have borrowed a kirby from my friend and i would like to wash my couches, please would you be so kind as to assist and let me know what tools i would need to use to be able to do so??


You need the upholstery attachment (it looks like a trigger sprayer with a plastic jar attached)You MUST have the foam screen that fits on the front of the trigger,without it,you will only get solution.The trigger sprayer fits on the end of the hose.The other end of the hose fits on the blower end of the machine.You must remove the bag,and attach the hose at this end.The trigger sprayer deposits the foam,and you work the foam in with a soft cloth or brush.When dry,switch the hose to the suction side,and vacuum out the foam.There is also an adapter (about the size of a styrofoam cup) that attaches to the front of the machine to allow it to be used when using the hose on the blower (bag) side.

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet


can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.

You probably have a blockage somewhere in the hose or in the base where the hose goes in. Remove the plastic tube at the base of the hose by simply unclicking it and remove the obstruction.

Shampoo attachment


Hi!
You need to take the power nozzle off and attach the thing that looks like a little plastic cup with two hooks on it. This is the intake guard. Attach it to the front. Now remove the cloth bag and put the hose on the hole where the bag was. You'll have to line the arrow on the hose up with the notch on the Kirby and push the hose arm toward the Kirby until it pops on. If you need to, lube up the edges of the hole with a wee bit of vaseline or hand lotion. This makes the hose engage easier. Now, put the shampoo gun on the end of the hose and you're ready to go.

Hoover z400 clogged


There should be a bottom plate covering the brush roll that you can remove, if you can't dig out the what is in there, try using your hose and suck it out from the bottom, maybe you will be able to get it out.

Hoover Agility, No Suction!!!


I had the same problem. Lower the handle to the floor and check the black spiral suction hose at the neck of the machine. The lower hose in my Hoover split. Check and see if yours has done the same thing. If so, the lower suction hose will have to be replaced. Hope this helps.
