Two checks:
(1) Is the lid sealed to the recovery tank at the black lid gasket?
(2) Is the round seal gasket in place on the suction tube, under the hood? That tubular pipe seals to the tube on the bottom of the recovery tank.

Dirt devil spot scrubber not picking up


Hi there! There are a few reasons why your spot scrubber may not be picking up. Your dirty water tank may not be seated properly or the filter may be dirty Please try these steps.

1. Check the filter located on top of the dirty water tank. If dirty, rinse with water.
2. Check that the pour spout cap on dirty water tank is plugged.
3. Replace the dirty water tank. Make sure the dirty water tank is flush to the cleaner and seated properly.
4. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.

Hope this helps! For further assistance please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

Royal carpet extractor not picking up water well


Try to follow the suction from the machine through the dirty water tank to the front floor suction piece. Make sure the dirty water tank is seated properly. Make sure there are no suction leaks any where.

It does not pick up the water after cleaning solution is applied


The most common reason for lack of pick up on the F5000 series is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will...


Sounds like a clogged air path (no vacuum action) from the floor pick-up to the collection tank. Take the tanks off and deal with the vacuum problem alone. The collection tank should have a air exit vent--is it clear? Check the interior hose that you repaired--is it clogged? Remove the bottom plate and inspect the air path from it. Because this machine deals with water, clogs can become like concrete! Hope this helps!

My scooba is not picking up all the water.


There are only a few things that can cause the condition you describe. First would be to verify that the vacuum/blower motor is running. You can test this by placing your hand on the floor opposite the side where the charger is connected and see if you feel air movement. If no air is felt, there's your problem. Second, there is a valve located in the dirty tank that if blocked will prevent water pick-up. To resolve and clear this condition will require several processes to occur at once. Fill the dirty tank half way with hot water, add Scooba cup of vinegar. Close the stopper and shake the "Good Grief" out of the tank. This action is necessary and may have to be repeated several times to clear the flapper valve in the dirty tank. Third, there may be a poor seal between the tank and the Scooba base. Verify that both the left and right sides of the tank are close to the base and equal in distance. If the right side is farther away from the tank (larger gap) then water pick up will be poor. Some Scoobe owners resort to using duct tape to hold down the tank. Fourth, verify that the thin rubber pieces on the bottom of the tank are not deformed and properly seated in the grooves. hope this helps
