SOURCE: No suction or spray - Eureka Atlantis Steam Cleaner

I got the machine working. I think because it hadn't been used for awhile that the seals were dried out. I wet them and let it sit for awhile and then I could push the containers all the way in and seated them properly. Then it started working no problem and I got to clean my carpets.

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

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 cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

My hoover max extract dual v stopped sucking up the water on just its second use. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?


The most likely problem is there is a restriction somewhere or a suction leak. Check to make sure you have good suction where the waste water tank fits down onto the machine. Make sure the lid is on the waste water tank and follow the flow of suction from the machine through the waste tank down to the floor and look for debris clogs or any area where there may be a suction leak. If you have good suction coming from the machine the problem has to be somewhere between there and where the water is being sucked off of the floor.

Water spray not functioning for hose or carpet. I purchased this about 3 weeks a go. The spray work for about 20 mins then stopped. Is there are reset? I have tried turing off and on etc. Wendy...


Wendy,
I have the same model Bissell as you and this is going to sound silly....
The spray tank runs out of solution allot faster than you would expect it to. Remove the tank, dump out all the used stuff, and refill your solution tank.
You never know that it is empty until you dump out the waste tank! 20 minutes sounds about right for a full solution tank to run dry.
Good Luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

I only used it once or twice and then the suction stopped and I can't figure out what went wrong. Hoover Steam Vac


This model has suction as soon as you turn on the machine. make sure the lower tank lid is on properly and the tank is latched in place. check the hose attachment door if that may be open. There is a float in the tank that will stop suction whenit is time to change the water, make sure the tank is empty.

No suction


I finally got my steamvac F5914-900 suction to work after I read someone review about it on amazon. Here is what that person suggested for suction problem and to my surprise it worked.

1. Any time you aren't getting suction, the first thing to do is check the dirty water bin. I re-seated the thing about ten times this morning, trying to figure out why suction on the unit had ceased. (The dirty water tank was bone dry.) I was frustrated because I was absolutely sure everything was seated properly, but was still getting no suction.

Finally, I pushed on the lid from the _sides_ rather than the back or front while attaching it to the tank, and it seated a little bit differently. Suction was restored!

2. To clean out the suction area, pour some hot water on a tile floor (NOT wood) and **** it up. Repeat until everything is flowing smoothly. Sometimes, reduced or minimal suction is due to gnarly clogs. Again, though, if you're getting NO suction, the culprit is probably the dirty water bin's lid.
I hope this helps.
