Tank not receiving any dirty water.

Can't find my manual and was hoping you could help. The solutions should be posted, so we do not have to email you. Help! I would like to get this carpet cleaned today! I used it before and now it does not want to draw the water into the tank.

Look at where the water/solution is drawn back up in the front of the machine (the window). They always plug there. Fish out what you can; if necessary, remove the screws that hold the window in and clean.

I was just given one of these. After cleaning an entire room and going through the entire tank of solution the recovery tank was bone dry. is that normal or should some of the water have been recovered?


Is it a carpet cleaner? If so, you should have dirty water (vacuumed from the carpet) in the recovery tank.
Most carpet cleaners have a transparent vacuum intake so you can see the dirty water going in as you pull back on the return sweep. Check for clogs or a broken belt. I advise against using you cleaner until the water pickup is repaired. Leaving water in the underlayment can cause mold,mildew and rotten floorboards.
I hope this helps. Good Luck!

I need to know why the Hoover Max Extreme keeps telling me t check the tank?


Hi! The solution and water goes in the top tank. Dirty water is suctioned into the bottom tank as you're scrubbing your floors. To fill the clean water tank, remove the clean water tank cap. The cap serves as a measuring cap for the solution. Fill the cap with Hoover carpet washer solution to the fill line. Pour detergent into tank. Fill the rest of the clean water tank with hot tap water and twist the cap back on. You are now ready to clean. Hope this helps!

Recovery tank has no water in it when shampooing


Hi there! Try these quick troubleshooting steps below to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the solution tank.
2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay down flat.
3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.
4. Adjust the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center so that it is flush and even across.
5. Assemble lid back on dirty water tank from the front to the back. Be sure the lid does not lift off from the front.

Hope this helps!

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

What setting do I need to have the machine on to **** up the excess water? I want to download the manual but can't seem to find a link to do so, how would I do that?


You should have the vacuum set to Wash/Rinse for all steps in cleaning. Press the trigger to release the cleaning solution and push the vacuum forward. With the trigger still pressed, bring the vacuum back towards you). Then release the trigger and again move the vacuum forward and then back. Repeat the "dry" strokes until the dirty water enters the dirty water tank. Watch the water going through the dirty water tank lid. Empty the dirty water tank if the suction fails or the tone changes. Do more dry strokes after cleaning the entire surface until you do not see more water entering the dirty water tank.

The manual is available from Hoover at the product site: http://hoover.com/products/details/f7411900/max-extract-dual-v-widepath-carpet-cleaner/ . The direct link is here: http://hoover.com/file/592/ .

I hope this helps.

Cannot remove lower tank for dirty water


Hi Karol,

You may have figured it out by now, but I'll go ahead and explain. You didn't give your model, so I'll go by the user manual for a F5810 model. If yours is different and you still can't get it off, reply back with your model number.

First you should remove the clean solution tank by pressing down on the tank handle and pulling forward. Set it aside. This is so there will be no leaks while you're emptying the dirty water.
Release the handle and lay it back on the floor. If you were doing the upholstery or stairs, remove the hose also. Turn the latches on the side of the recovery tank outward and lift the tank off. To empty the tank,you unlatch the lid at the back and remove it.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Whare does the dirty water go in the bissel 12 amp pro heat carpet cleaner


the clean water goes into a "Bladder Bag" that is located inside the tank. The way it is designed to work, as the clean water dispenses from the bladder bag, the outer part around the bladder bag fills with the dirty water. It never touches the clean water. Seems wierd, but it works! I hope this helps, if it does, please give feedback, as it helps me to gain ratings. Thank you! Remember to have your cleaners serviced every year by a qualified tech!

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

I can't seem to figure out how to use it =(

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5807 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum. Well, there are 2 tanks, one is the water solution tank that is on top and the other is the water recovery tank of which is on the bottom. You use the trigger assm to release the water and the Hoover SteamVac works the best on the pull back. You can spry the water going forward but pull it back very slowly and let the brushes do the scrubbing for you and the dirty water pickup. There is a ball in the dirty water pup tank that will rise to the top and stop the water from coming in, @ that point you need to empty and rinse out the recovery tank and re-install. If you run out of solution the top tank cap or cover is the measuring cup to determine the amount of solution – usually it is one cap full and extremely hot water, there is a switch for the carpet and the upholstery, if the handle is in the released position then the brushes down below should be moving – just look in the brushes window and see if they are moving – if the handle is in the upright position then you can remove the attachment hose and then use the attachment and the revolving brushes will stop. I hope this will help you in working with the Hoover SteamVac. If not contact the Hoover Co and get an owner’s manual and give them the model # and serial #. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My scooba is not picking up all the water.


There are only a few things that can cause the condition you describe. First would be to verify that the vacuum/blower motor is running. You can test this by placing your hand on the floor opposite the side where the charger is connected and see if you feel air movement. If no air is felt, there's your problem. Second, there is a valve located in the dirty tank that if blocked will prevent water pick-up. To resolve and clear this condition will require several processes to occur at once. Fill the dirty tank half way with hot water, add Scooba cup of vinegar. Close the stopper and shake the "Good Grief" out of the tank. This action is necessary and may have to be repeated several times to clear the flapper valve in the dirty tank. Third, there may be a poor seal between the tank and the Scooba base. Verify that both the left and right sides of the tank are close to the base and equal in distance. If the right side is farther away from the tank (larger gap) then water pick up will be poor. Some Scoobe owners resort to using duct tape to hold down the tank. Fourth, verify that the thin rubber pieces on the bottom of the tank are not deformed and properly seated in the grooves. hope this helps
