You may wish to check and see if the leak is where the small water supply hose is plugged in to the cleaner base. That connecction supplies water from the product, to the spray end on the upholstery hose.

Cleaning solution does not come out


When you are using upholstery hose the water/solution does not go through the heater so see if water sprays out of upholstery attachment (this may take a little while for water to travel the distance). If it does than you know your pump is good. If water does spray out of hose but not out of bottom of unit it will more than likely be a clogged heater unit caused by water calcification or detergents. This can be cleaned out however it is not an easy job. And, if the heat insolators are not placed exactly in place, it can lead to plastic melting.

Why is water pouring out the bottom when I try to use upholstery attachment?


On many hoover models the hose attaches to the vacuum and is held on by a clip on the hose assembly. There may be some damage to your hose or the place where it attaches to the machine. Inspect these areas trying to locate the point of the leak.

How do you attach upholstery hose


The upholstery hose attaches to the front of the recovery (lower) tank. There is a square plastic duct which must be removed, or folded forward on recent models; and the end of the hose slides into the front of the tank. Be sure to replace the lid on the dirty water tank correctly. The connector on the soap tube attaches to the valve under the trap door on top of the nozzle.

How to hook up tool to clean upholstery


Keep your upholstered furniture looking fresh by vacuuming it regularly with the upholstery tool attached to your vacuum's hose. Prevent the fabric from fading (or at least delay this) by keeping your furniture out of direct sunlight -- close blinds, shades or curtains when the sun shines most directly through windows closest to the upholstery. And remove stains by blotting them with a dry cleaning solvent. Before steam cleaning your upholstered furniture, read the piece's cleaning code label to determine whether or not it is safe to do so. Then rent or buy a steam cleaner (also called an extractor) and follow the directions below.

  1. Rent a steam cleaner or purchase one; buy steam cleaner solution.
  2. Step 2 Vacuum the upholstery on the furniture you wish to steam clean; use the upholstery attachment to most effectively **** up loose debris.
  3. Step 3 Test the steam-cleaner solution on the upholstery in an inconspicuous place to ensure the color won't be steamed out or drastically altered.
  4. Step 4 Attempt to remove any stains with a stain removal or dry cleaning solution. Follow the directions that come with the product you choose for the best results, and allow the stain remover to dry before you begin steam cleaning.
  5. Step 5 Remove cushions and, if necessary, arm covers.
  6. Step 6 Gently apply the steaming water and cleaning solution in straight lines across the upholstery one section at a time.
  7. Step 7 Use the cleaning extension on the steam cleaner to **** up as much water as possible. The dirt will come out with the water.
  8. Step 8 Clean one side each cushion (then allow it to dry) before cleaning the other side. If the cushions are permanently attached to the furniture, clean them last.
  9. Step 9 Allow the furniture to dry completely before repeating the steam-cleaning process or replacing the cushions.

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.

Eureka atlantis...water won't spray out.


Try taking the upholstery nozzle apart, there are only a couple of screws, and make sure the little tube is attached where it is supposed to be attached. Be careful when you take it apart, and remember how to put it back together. Try running some water in the one end and see if it comes out the other end. I had a problem with the grip switch not working, and ended getting Eureka to send me a whole new unit as it was still under warranty. I honestly tried to fix it myself, but I don't think the design is good enough to be fixed, so replacement is usually the better choice. Again, I say, shame on Eureka for such a bad product. A good appliance service depot should be able to get a new hose for you, but if you have to pay big bucks, I think it is better to try a different brand than Eureka. I'm assuming by your question that the nozzle is the one on the upholstery hose attachment.

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).

Furniture cleaning isn't a science: try out a few techniques before choosing the one that is right for your belongings. This step-by-step guide explains how to clean a sofa:
  1. Before using any upholstery cleaning products, vacuum the sofa or chair first to remove as much surface dirt and dust as possible. Be sure to use the correct attachments to avoid damage to the material - a soft brush attachment is ideal.
  1. Spot Clean. Using baby wipes or vinegar poured onto a strong microfiber cloth, apply to any obvious stains, wiping gently as you go. Remember to test the upholstery cleaning products on an inconspicuous area first.
  1. Overall Clean. Using soapy water and a microfibre cloth, gently wipe your sofa with the solution, allowing it to soak into the fabric and tackle the dirt beneath the surface. You only want to use a very small amount of water - don't saturate the material.
  1. Dry. Some people use a hairdryer to quickly dry a sofa, but allowing it to dry naturally is always the better option, if you have the time. To speed things up, open windows and allow the breeze to help with the drying process.

Stair and upholstery attachment


After tearing things down and inspecting the handle switch, etc., I found that my problem was detergent. It sets idle for a while or doesn't get used very much and the detergent dries and actually clogs the inside of the hose. I cleared it by fully extending the hose, pressing the button and allowing the clog to clear itself. The built in heater helped out a lot once the flow started again. I used a can of compressed air to provide a little blow back to get things moving but not too much or the pump would be damaged. Remove the tool and hold the nozzle into an empty cup while depressing the trigger. A warm vinegar solution clears things out nicely. It's kinda hard for this piece go defective but easy to overlook when wrapping up and storing the unit. Remember, clean water rinse with 1/4 cup white vinegar. There, I fixed it and wasn't even broke!

Hoover Upright SteamVac Deluxe with stair and upholstery cleaner


Don't listen to Solution #1, it is simply NOT correct. This is the correct answer:

As you stated, you already know where the water hose connection is. It is under the easily visible port cover on the top of the base.

What is NOT easily visible is the connection for the vacuum hose. That's because the machine needs to be "reconfigured" before the hose can be attached. To "reconfigure" the machine:
1) Remove the cover off the waste water tank and notice how things appear--it will soon be important.
2) Find and remove the "panel" on the front of the waste water tank by sliding it straight up and out.
3) Replace the panel with the connector by sliding it straight down. When finished the top should look something like it did in step 1). This assures that the dirty water will be vacuumed into the waste water tank.
Done!
