On the inside of the recovery tank lid, the foam filter, if it is all of the way up to the top of the lid, lower it to leave about a 1/4 in. gap. The red filter at the bottom is clogged. The lid is not locked onto the tank, these are the main reasons when you don't have suction.

What products will remove dog wee stain from a carpet?


  • Dog liquid waste turns to crystals when it dries,, the only way to get the crystals out is with hot water extraction. If you use too much water you run the risk of it getting into the padding or the backing of the carpet and then it smells till it dries out. You need to get a carpet shampoo or cleaner that has enzymes in it.

The dirty water tank will not fill up


Make sure it's putting the right amount of water down. Many machines brought in to my store for repairs are putting down just a small amount but people think its not extracting any when the real problem is not putting out enough water.
If that's not the case make sure there are no clogs or suction leaks anywhere which will greatly reduce water extraction.

Will not **** the water off the carpet.


If the carpet cleaner won't "Extract" water from the carpet, try using the upholstery / hand tool. If you have suction there, your selector switch / knob is either in wrong position, or broken. There may also be a tear in the hose on the inside of the cleaner, or the waste tank is not sealing well.

Hoover SteamVac isn't extracting solution from carpet. Motor runs and the brushes weren't turning at first but do now


That vacuum is fine on liquid extraction but often gets clogged by debris when it hits a solid. It would be better to do the clean with the steamvac then follow it with a wet/dry shop vac to be sure you got all the water. I say this because the vac built into that hoover is way too easy to clog.

Bissell pro heat will not extract water from the carpet


Try checking the top section of the machine (where the dial is located to switch it from floor to tool) and there is a little red plastic piece about 1 inch square on the inside of it. This is a lint filter that has a little door on it. Open the door or remove the entire thing to clean it out. It is probably completely blocked with hair, etc.. which is why you have no suction. Replace it after you clean it out and hopefully your problem will be solved!

Instructions or manuel was not included.


i downloaded the manual for your machine, but not sure how to access it for you,but i do know about the problem, the tank that sits down on the front of the steamer and it has 2 clips that you push in to lock the tank is where your dirty water is put in when you are cleaning your carpets. the tank above ,the one where you put your solution and water in is what is used to shampoo your carpet. on the handle is a trigger (black) button ,this is the button you push in to release your solution onto your carpet. release the button to extract the water from your carpet,moving your steamer in a back and forth motion. the trigger button is the only button on the machine and is only used to put the water /cleaner located in the upper tank on your carpet, releasing this button and moving your steamer back and forth over the shampooed part with extract your dirty water into the tank that sits below the solution tank. go on www.hoover.com and click on carpet cleaners ,scroll down to find yours and click on manual. and the owner manual will download and you can print it out for future reference, i hope this will solve your problem, sandy

My G series kirby carpet cleaner will not **** up the water or foam very well


The Kirby shampooer deposits the foam onto carpet,and works it into the carpet with the shampooer brushroll.After the carpet is dry,use the vacuum itself to pick up the dry foam and dirt.The Kirby Shampooer is not an extraction shampooer

Wont extract checked the filter, it isnt up all the way, and took apart and didnt find an obstruction


I assume you are talking about no spray. Check the rod inside the handle, amke sure it is moving up and down when you squeeze the trigger, If it is, is water coming out the bottom of the tank when you push in the valve, if it does, then the reservior asm. ( the tank sits on it) maybe bad and will have to be replaced. If yours has a foam filter on the lid of the dirty water tank, make sure there is a 1/4 or so gap from the top of the filter to the top of the tank lid.

Won't extract water from carpet.


Seems the 1950W is now obsolete, cna't even bring up a drawing of it. Usually when the vac. motor is running, then there has to be suction. But if a seal or gaske is missing, then the suction will be lost. So you might check the dirty water tank to make sure there isn't a part missing or out of place. Check this out, it is for a 1950-3:
