Recovery tank has no water in it when shampooing

Hi there! Try these quick troubleshooting steps below to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the solution tank.
2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay down flat.
3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.
4. Adjust the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center so that it is flush and even across.
5. Assemble lid back on dirty water tank from the front to the back. Be sure the lid does not lift off from the front.

Hope this helps!

Hoover steam vac dual v carpet cleaner has stopped dispensing soap. Water is still flowing fine

You probably have a solenoid valve which has failed and will not open. This will require replacement of the valve. For temporary use you can mix a soap solution and put it in the rinse tank. The correct mix is 5 ounces of Hoover shampoo to a gallon of hot water.

F7210-900 Steam Vac. will not put out water when switch is in wash position but it will put out water when the rinse position

There are two electrical solenoids inside the hood assembly. One opens to dispense rinse water, and the other dispenses the soap and water solution. It is likely that the soap and water solenoid has failed and will require replacement. A "work around" fix for this is to mix the soap solution in the clear water tank ( 5 oz. of shampoo per gallon of water ), and shampoo that way until the solenoid can be replaced.

It is not dispensing the shampoo on to the carpet.


Firstly, please ensure that there is shampoo in the tank and the tank is correctly and fully inserted. There are 2 ways to dispense shampoo on to the carpet:

1. Use the solution trigger on the underside of the handle (numbered 2 in the picture below)
2. For tough stains use the "Clean Surge" button to dispense extra shampoo (numbered 3 in the picture below

Where can i get the shampoo? Can i find the owners manual online?

you should be able to get the shampoo at wal-mart and any place else they sell the steam cleaners. You do not have to use the eureka shampoo for this unit, however, it is more recommended.

I mean you can use the hoover, and dirt devil shampoo if you can find that, or something generic. Because the machine is mixing the soap for you with the water, anything will work.

As for the owners manual, you can get it here.

SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum: how do i add the solution to the steam vac? how mu...

You didn't give a model number so I'll tell you both methods. The F5xxx and F6xxx models have a cap at the top of the clean water tank that doubles as a measuring cup. The cap is about 3 inches in diameter. Fill the cap to the fill line with shampoo and dump it in the tank. Then fill the tank with hot (Not Boiling) water.
The F7xxx series has a 2 section tank. The large section is for hot (Not Boiling) water. The smaller section is for shampoo. Fill the smaller section with shampoo and the Steam Vac will mix the water and shampoo for you in the proper proportion.

A solution to many "non-spray" problems.

The Scotchguard is going to be dicey inside the Bissell, yes, as you have learned the hard way.

I think the Bissell and the Hoover shampoos sold for their carpet cleaning machines are reasonably safe to use in the Bissell. My own personal favorite for use with the Bissell is the Hoover Premium Pet Formula, which is pricey but effective even if you don't own pets. I also pre-treat stained areas with Resolve Carpet Cleaner, a few minutes before using the Bissell.

I don't know what will happen with your home brew containing Dove. It may work well.

Water and shampoo run out with the trigger in the off position

From your description, you have a problem with your one of the solenoids that may be stuck open. this would require a shop repair.
