Maybe the reservior asm(#24). isn't working, when you push the trigger, it pushes a rod inside the handle to hit the reservior asm. so the water will release. Could be the rod isn't hitting the reservior asm. Maybe these pictures will help.

Beater brush stuck on (keeps turning) in upright position and no hose suction with Hoover U5753-900 WindTunnel Bagless Upright Vacuum. I have tried adjusting the brush level up and down and moving the...

HI, it's Jim from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover may be losing suction in the hose and having an issue with the brush roll due to a clog within the vacuum, or possible debris stuck on the brush roll itself. Here's some tips that will help.

First off, if your brush roll just keeps turning be sure to turn off your vacuum before examining it. In regards to the lack of suction in the hose there may be a clog in the vacuum itself.

After every use, make sure to empty your unit's dust cup. Allowing for fine dust and debris to rest in your unit's dust cup for a long period may cause your unit to become clogged, which leads to poor or even no suction, for the hose as well.

It is recommended to wash and clean your unit's filter weekly. To do so, empty your filter screen outdoors to take off any excess debris and then clean under running water until the water comes out clean. Allow the filter screen to fully dry before inserting it back into the unit. This may take up to several hours. Be sure to allow it to FULLY dry.

Lets look at the hose itself. Stretch the hose out entirely to see if there are any clogs within. A handy way to unclog your hose is to use a broom handle or coat hanger. Make sure the coat hanger is a plastic one. You don't want to tear the walls of your hose.

As for the brush roll itself. Is the belt intact? After usage the belt will stretch out and lessen the tension on the brush roll. This could be causing the brush roll to have a lack of resistance against it. You want to be sure the belt is on there nice and tight. Also, manually spin the brush roll to see if there are any clogs or debris stuck within.

My Hoover upright U5472-900 runs but there is no suction at all. I have taken it apart and thoroughly cleaned it.

Turn it on. Detatch the cleaning tools handle from it's mount. If it still has no suction, you have a plugged hose. Everything your vacuum does goes through that long hose. Take the 2 screws off where it attacvhes to the unit, then gently push a broom handle through it to release/loosen the clog. You should be able to see through the hose from end to end. Toys, tissue and pine needles are big culprets of clogged hoses.

The hoover steam vac 5 brush agitator dispenses water and soap but does not show any return water to dirty water reservoir. The carpet seems damp but not soaked, still a bit troubling no waste water...what...

You do not have the needed vacuum on the dirty water intake. Possible causes are:
1. No adapter sleeve in the back of the dirty water tank (the one that you remove to put the fabric hose adapter in)
2. The dirty water top is not sealed (cracked, not on correctly)
3. The intake shoot at the front of the unit is clogged with dirt/hair.

REMEMBER: This is NOT a vacuum cleaner - it is not designed to remove hair and dust.... ONLY wet dirt. If you fail to vacuum floors just before steam cleaning, the unit will clog up in minutes!!

Constantly sprays water

Hoover F7452-900 SteamVac Upright Vacuum
I noticed recently that our Hoover F7452 All Terrain constantly sprays water. As soon as I turn it on, whether or not it's set to Rinse or Auto-Rinse, its leaking water at the brushes. I probably wouldn't have noticed but I attached the hand-held adapter to clean our stairs and when I was done there was a HUGE pile of water under the vac. I took everything off and cleaned really good and looked again this morning and its still doing it. Any ideas?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You probably have a bad trigger release valve or a loose connection @ the bottom of the SteamVac or the gasket under the solution tank in not sitting on there right and is leaking or you may have a small cut in the hose, but it so may guess that it is a bad trigger release valve or a bad gasket. Check with your local vac dealer to see if they have a new or a good used one to see if there is the problem or back track the problem from the bottom to the solution tank. 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.

Hoover eite rewind vacuum has blocked airflow, how do i fix?

Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then the blockage is in the hose, unhook the hose and dig out the debris, if hose isn't blocked, then clean out the filters, if they get clogged, then air can;t flow thru them and you won't have suction. If you have suction at the end of the hose, then it is clogged down in the nozzle asm. there is an inlet by the brush roll and it comes up to where the hose plugs into. Clean the clog out.
