Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum
Machine is blowing warm air not sucking up water
Is there a part missing on the front of the dirty water tank? On some of these machines, there is block that you take out so you can insert the hose in its place. So if this spot is open, then it can't suck and will be blowing warm air.

SOURCE: blowing air out
Blowing warm air is normal for these machines. The suction problem is probably a result of the lid on the recovery tank not being installed correctly. Take the lid off the tank. If you look at the top/front of the tank, you will notice that there are two "tabs" at the corners. These tabs insert into the lid and hold the front of the lid in place. You then fold the lid down towards the back where there is a latch on the lid that locks the lid in place. It is a very common problem that people don't get the front engaged properly and the suction leaks out there and never gets to the floor. The motor will produce heat as a natural byproduct and is not unusual.
