The part directly above the water canister had become wet when the vacuum tipped over. It needed to dry out before I could use it again.

My Bissell carpet clean will not extract water


Possible the water pump has gone out. I changed mine out it was not too hard.Also make sure the pump lines are all still attached and not clogged.This will take a little dis-assembly.

Worked fine. Then I refilled water/soap tank, now there is no suction.


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

I release the water, but the water dose not **** up


You do not say which model you have. In most cases lack of pick up is due to the lid not being firmly seated on the dirty water tank. If this is an F5800 or F5900 series steamvac, another possibility is that the front duct is missing from the tank. The duct slides into the front of the tank, and is removed to use the hose. If it is missing there will be no pick-up. A less common problem is that the large round rubber seal that the tank sits on is missing. If you look at the bottom of the dirty water tank, you will see a round tube, open at the bottom. This opening sits against the seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Look in the area where the tank sits, and be sure the seal has not fallen off the motor cover.

Model F5892-900 Does not seem to be sucking up the solution/water. Is there something that may need to be cleaned out? If so, how? Thanks

When I use the hoover steam vac the bottom tank does not have any dirty water or anything in it, I bought it from a neighbor I wonder if I have it hooked up right.


If the motor runs and the water is not sucked up it is due to an air leak. This is most often caused by the lid not being properly seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure the lid is on squarely all around. Another common problem is that the duct is missing from the dirty water tank. This occurs on the models which have the more "square" shaped tank, with a foot operated on/off switch. The duct slides into the front of the lower tank, and is removed to attach the hose. It may have not been put back in place by the last user. A less common problem is that the large round rubber gasket that the tank sits on has fallen off the tube that comes up from the motor cover. Look for the gasket by removing the tank and checking underneath it.

Rainbow is spurting water from seam!


You fill the chamber only to the top of the peg in the center don't you? Any debris foreign debris or object stuck to the seal on the motorbase? Have you cleaned the slinger? (that ivory-colored thing with the little slots in it)
