This sounds like a faulty solenoid that may be intermittantly working. I would take it to a repair shop for evalualtion

Hoover troubleshooting


Hi! Try these quick and easy steps to get the water from your hose to spray.

Assemble the hose to the unit.

While holding the hose at an angle towards the ground, pump the trigger about 30 times. Turn the cleaner on then squeeze the trigger for 30 seconds.

If the water is still not dispensing there may be soap residue bulid-up clogging the nozzle/valve. Try soaking the trigger end in warm water for a couple hours, then repeating the steps above.

If the cleaner is still not dispensing from the hose but dispenses from the unit, a replacement hose may be needed. Follow the link below to order a replacement hose for your cleaner. Search Results

Why won't my Hoover SteamVac 7000 LS spray?


Hi there! Be sure you are only using the recommended detergent for your cleaner. Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger to get the solution to flow. Give these quick steps a try.

1. Recline the handle

2. Pump the trigger 30 times

3. Power the unit on.

4. Squeeze trigger for 60 seconds

If the cleaner still wont dispense you may have an issue with your pump assembly. We recommend taking your unit in to an authorized service center for repair. I have included a link where you may go to locate a service center near you. Service Center Locator

Thanks!

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

No water getting to brushs


Hi! Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger under the handle to get the solution flowing. To prime the trigger, recline the handle and pump trigger about 60 times. Then, power the cleaner on and squeeze the trigger for about 60 seconds. The solution should start to dispense. If it is still not dispensing there may be an issue with the pump assembly on the cleaner. We would recommend taking the cleaner in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate one nearest you. Service Center Locator

Hope this helps!

How can I fix my Hoover spin scrub 50 solution trigger? It is not working.


Hey there! Sounds like you have no tension in your trigger. This could mean a problem with the trigger spring or control rod in the handle. Try reassembling the handle. Remove the two handle screws and slide the handle up and off. Inspect the control rods for damages. They should be the same length. Make sure they are pulled down as well. Reassemble the handle. If the trigger still has no tension but the cleaner dispenses from the hose, a replacement handle may be needed. To replace the handle, follow the link below.

Model F5865-900 -water won't dispense


I used a couple of cable zip ties to tighten V at the base of the trigger shaft - this is the shaft directly from the trigger at the top of the steam vac--just remove two screws toward the top of the unit

My cleaner is not dispensing the shampoo solution. Still sucks up the dirty water that I manually applied with a scrub brush. I use this on my tiled screen porch floor and it has worked great many times.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover SteamVac Carpet / Upholstery Deep Carpet Cleaner.

There is a release value in the bottom the holding tank that may be bad and not opening or the trigger assm in the handle may be broken and not connecting to release the water to scrub and clean the carpets. You should really check with your local factory authorized Hoover vac dealer in your area or , 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.

The solution will not dispense from the machine but will still dispense from the hose.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5866-900 SteamVac Deluxe Wet/Dry. You probably have 2 problems, #1. The trigger assm may be loose or broken and is not releasing the solution from the water solution tank or #2. The valve under the water solution tank could be shot or broken. If so, then the water solution tank is one assm and you would need to purchase a new or a good used one to replace. Please, feel free to check with your local vac dealer in your area. 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.
