Hello,
I have a simular model. Here's what I do.
On the fill tank (that's the top tank), look on the front and you'll see where it says "Fill Line". Fill this with hot water first (so it doesn't foam up) and then add your cleaning solution. Make sure the lid on the bottom tank is on tight. It should snap in place. Top should also snap into place. Turn on and pull trigger and move forward a few feet, let go of trigger and solution will stop coming out. Do this a few times and then without pulling trigger, go over the same area you just did to pick up water. Repeat this until you are done. When the bottom tank is full, it will sound a little loader and higher pitch. Just empty tank and put back in and continue.
Hope this helps.

How do you connect the stair and upholstery hose to the hoover steam vac


You can download your manual at Hoover.com under Service and Support - Download Manuals. It's acutally very easy to connect: With cleaner unplugged, open the hose connection port on the top of the suction nozzle (much easier to just follow the pictures than to figure out from my description) and plug in the short hose end. Plug the solution tube into its connection port on the side of the lower unit (in front of the wheel). You'll also want to check out the instructions for cleanup.

Dry/Wet vac is blowing instead of vaccuum


Check to see if the plastic ball is stuck . There should be a ball under the motor , make sure it moves freely. Make sure your vacum lines are not plugged . Best of luck Ed.

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it. I put water & cleaner in top tank....


I did have a solution in just a few minutes. Someone responded with a solution that gave me the website where I could go and print the manual in pdf, so did that, and checking instructions I was able to clean my carpets and get the shampooer back to my sister later the same day. I really appreciated your site and help I got for my problem. I found it on google. Thanks again!

Hoover Steam Vac leaks like a sieve


I have the same problem with my hoover steam vac, different model but same problem. So I have had it for 2 years and never used the attachments because the thing leaked out the bottom when i tried. So today I tried to find a solution online and found nothing. So I started toying with the thing and found a solution for my model and I hope it will work for everyone else. I don't have a stair attachment so this goes for the upholstery cleaning attachment. I noticed right where my upholstery attachment connects to get soap, there is a second hole that is covered by a white rubber seal when the cover for the connection area is closed. I put a plastic bag, or anything to seal it, into this hole to make a tight seal. Tried the machine and worked like a champ. So Would be nice if hoover supplied a plug for that, but oh well worked for me hope it works for others with a hoover steam vac.

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Brush Disassembly Hoover STEAM VAC Owners Manual F9514-900 (F9514900) does not
explain how to take the brush assembly apart. The instructions are as
follows:

Figure 1 shows the key

features. There are two

clear plastic outer pieces

which are held onto the

white inner piece with 3

tabs each. The clear

plastic tabs go underneath

the corresponding white

extended tabs on the white

plastic inner piece.

Figure 2 shows where the

screwdriver is inserted

(flat blade) and gently

pushed down while pulling

of the brushes. Hair and

fuzz remarkably entrained

in brushes, but I got 90% of it out.
