I would almost guarantee the recovery tank is not seated properly. Trust me, I reseated the tank 5-10 times before giving up. I finally decided to give it one more try before forking out the money for another cleaner. I removed the clean water tank, turned the machine on (you could feel the air blowing out the sides on the bottom). With the machine still running, I unclipped the recovery tank and lifted it up (yes, you can do this, and it creates a very loud air thrust, but don't be scared), then I SLAMMED it back down into the seat and immediately I could tell the difference. The air stopped blowing from underneath and I could tell I had suction once again. I turned it off, put the clean water tank back on, and it worked like a charm. Trust me, you may be convinced that the recovery tank is seated properly.....LOL.....it ain't! Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a hoover spinscrub 800. It washes great

in some cases when this happenes it's usually from a really bad filter or the squeege at the bottom of the nozzle. the squeege is what makes contact with the floor and suctions all of the water up. to take off. take off the nozzle and there will be (3) screws inside of the nozzle. once these screw are removed, the squeege can be removed. at hoover.com the replacement part # is 93001094. ( according to model # H3060 )

SOURCE: HOOVER SPINSCRUB WONT SUCK UP WATER...BLOWING AIR OUT

ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN

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!

It won't suction the dirty water up to the container. I have ck'd the lid for the dirty water several times. Any other suggestions?


Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

  • Check to make sure that the lower dirty water lid is installed and secure and not cracked.
  • Check to make sure the front duct panel is installed on the dirty water tank (this will transition the water from the front nozzle into the tank)
  • Check the filter in the dirty tank lid, clean if necessary
  • Remove the lower tank and look at the motor cover, locate a round hole, you should see a black ring (gasket).
  • with the lower tank removed, turn the machine on to check suction at the round hole, if OK then your problem will be with one of the above reasons

Dirty water is leaking back out


After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to hoover.com to download one for cleaning directions.

I was having the same problem, the black seal under the tank that captures the water was broken, and it wasn't getting any suction.

Suction button


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
