Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
When I cleaned the carpet the water is not being suck up as I clean.
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 all the way around.

Hi There, The machine does not actually suck the suds up. Basically the machine lays the foam down which then crystalises and absorbs the dirt in the process. Once this has had around - 4-5 hours to dry then you vacuum up as normal taking the crystalised dirt away. You should really use the Genuine Kirby product as it's very good but you can also you any other DRY FOAM shampoo. Hope this helps Chris www.elidistribution.co.uk

I'm not sure if this will help but I had the same problem and was about ready to pull my hair out. I ended up taking the fill tank off and if you look inside where the red overflow flap is you will find a small screened opening. I found that mine was pretty clogged up with debris but once I removed the mess and put my machine back together it is now sucking like a champ. I hope this helps. Here's hoping that you don't have the pay for a service person to look at it.

SOURCE: steam vac won't **** water
check to see if the recovery tank lid is on correctly. if this is not on, the machine will not **** up the dirty water from the carpet. all you will get is suction that is chopy when it comes up instead of more like a flow.

CHECK THE RETURN HOSE ...IT'S PROBABLY SPLIT.

Testimonial: "The return hose was split, but it would have been nice if the advice also explained how to check for the split in the return hose. Thanks though!"
push the little square thingy down on the very front of the bottom bucket, then put the lid on before you put it on the machine, then let the force of putting it together push the front thingy up when you put the bottom bucket on the machine as one assembly..... it makes the seal right somehow..... ....my wife about pulled her hair out before we figured it out the hard way...... I may get a reward tonight......
