Clogging of the pump that sprays water/cleaning solution is very common in Hoover and Bissell Steam Vacs. Try running a cycle of 1part vinegar or CLR to 3 parts warm, distilled water through the vacuum pumps. The heads get clogged with soap and the water pumps get clogged at the opening of the flash heater due to minerals in hard water. If you want to extend the life of your steam vac, don't use the heater unless you are using distilled water. This can get expensive, so I recommend not using the heater.

This is most likely due to a problem with the solenoid on the rinse side not opening. The solenoid may require replacement.

Under the detergent side, there is a metering plate,(located on the machine) which can be removed. ensure that this is installed. have you verified whether the machine will dispense detergent only without any water in the water tank?

Hoover SteamVac Model F5887-920 - hand attachment won't spray


I have a model I got in 2001. I found that the water sprayer on the hand tool is driven by a little turbine that relies on suction from the main vacuum motor. I eventually found that the spindle inside the turbine had separated and hence the hand-tool wouldn't spray. I glued it together but that only fixed the problem until it broke again. I am going to buy another (about $23).

There is no belt, either the turbine part #43191003, or the brush block, the shaft that goes up into the turbine broke off part #48437022. The turbine is what drives the brushes.

I have a Hoover SteamVac Deluxe and it will not spray the detergent. I have taken it apart and still can't solve the problem. Any help or suggestions?


If yours has separate tanks for the solution and water, it is a pressure regulator switch. It happened on my mine and I replaced it. 3 hoses attach to it and it was located in the handle area on mine. If you mix your own solution in one tank, look at the spray nozzles. They can get plugged.
