Two checks: Assure the recovery tank lid is sealed to the tank, and assure the round rubber seal is in place under the hood where the recovery tank sits on the round cylinder. That seal assures the vacuum seals from the base to the tank.

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.

Give it a try! The cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

Won't pickup water on rug


I may have already given my best advice but, check the hose line to the extraction tank and make sure there are no cracks in it. This will allow it to **** in air, and therefore reduce the vacuum pressure at the head of the machine, causing it to malfunction.

What do I need to do to extract water from a carpet following a leak.


If you're renting your home, call the landlord and let him have it taken care of.
If you own your home, the best thing you can do is to call a carpet cleaning company with a truck mounted machine. They still won't be able to remove all the moisture, but will get it dry enough for the next step. If you feel this would be too expensive, rent a "steam cleaner" from a rental place, or store where they rent them, and go over your carpet several times with this.
After the water has been vacuumed up, you'll need to lift carpet and prop it up enough to allow a fan or two to be placed so it will be able to blow air on the bottom of the carpet, as well as the pad. Raising the temperature in the room, or placing a heater that will blow warm air on the carpet and pad will help dry them faster.
Ensure origin of leak is fixed.

Will not **** the water off the carpet.


If the carpet cleaner won't "Extract" water from the carpet, try using the upholstery / hand tool. If you have suction there, your selector switch / knob is either in wrong position, or broken. There may also be a tear in the hose on the inside of the cleaner, or the waste tank is not sealing well.

Cleaner willnot dispense water and vaccum it again. Soap dispense fine. would like a owners manual.


sounds like you have a clog in the waterline, or a pinched hose.
Locate the water line hose, disconnect, and blow through with can of compressed air.
If nothing goes through...you have a blockage/pinch.

I would almost guarantee the recovery tank is not seated properly. Trust me, I reseated the tank 5-10 times before giving up. I finally decided to give it one more try before forking out the money for another cleaner. I removed the clean water tank, turned the machine on (you could feel the air blowing out the sides on the bottom). With the machine still running, I unclipped the recovery tank and lifted it up (yes, you can do this, and it creates a very loud air thrust, but don't be scared), then I SLAMMED it back down into the seat and immediately I could tell the difference. The air stopped blowing from underneath and I could tell I had suction once again. I turned it off, put the clean water tank back on, and it worked like a charm. Trust me, you may be convinced that the recovery tank is seated properly.....LOL.....it ain't! Hope this helps!
