Question about Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Cleaning the cleaner?

How do you clean out the vacuum cleaner? Hair and dirt gets stuck in the narrow uptake. I can use a knife to get some of it out, but since it's curved, I can't get to all of it.

My Dyson dc 14 has very stiff rotater brush,forcing the clutch to slip with aclicking,grinding noise.


Unplug the machine.
With plenty of light, look to see where the part that moves would be stuck. Dirt, hair, grime, and dust get caught, causing just what you are describing. Without seeing it, I will guess a simple cleaning of this will address and deliver a solution. Hair that gets stuck in turning brushes can be pried away with a stiff brush (old toothbrush).

How can I clean or open the bissell quicksteamer dirty tank


Hi Deni! The collection tank can not be opened for cleaning. You may want to fill the tank with some hot tap water and let it sit for about 30 miutes.

Here's a link to our website if you decide to order a new tank.

How do you go about cleaning the rotating brush on the dirt devil bagless vacuum?


Using a sharp pocket knife or a utility knife making a single cut across the length of the roller is a good way to start. Then it is just a matter of pulling the strands or fabric and hair, etc., off. I like to inspect the end caps and bearings as well. A touch of grease of oil can help increase the life of your roller as well. ( for the bearings)

Hair getting stuck in the belt drive area causing beater to skip


Hair,string, tinsel, etc. have always been problems for rollers and belts. You will have to remove the hair. It can often get stuck at the ends of the rollers also and keep the roller from turning. I usually remove the roller and clean it using a screwdriver, knife, etc. to remove the hair. the cleaning can be done while the roller is still on the unit by turning the unit over although this may not offer as much free access to the roller. Of course, removing the roller means removing the belt and if you are not up to this (I don't know how handy you are), I would try to remove the hair with the roller on. If you do this, be careful not to put any nicks in the belt. Good luck!

The hoover steam vac 5 brush agitator dispenses water and soap but does not show any return water to dirty water reservoir. The carpet seems damp but not soaked, still a bit troubling no waste water...what...


You do not have the needed vacuum on the dirty water intake. Possible causes are:
1. No adapter sleeve in the back of the dirty water tank (the one that you remove to put the fabric hose adapter in)
2. The dirty water top is not sealed (cracked, not on correctly)
3. The intake shoot at the front of the unit is clogged with dirt/hair.

REMEMBER: This is NOT a vacuum cleaner - it is not designed to remove hair and dust.... ONLY wet dirt. If you fail to vacuum floors just before steam cleaning, the unit will clog up in minutes!!

do you have suction at the front of the base,if you don't then look at the plastic cover on the base,you should be able to see through the plastic.the suction slot on the bottom front of the base is very narrow.i don't know if you have pets but most of the time the suction chanel gets clogged with hair and dirt.the chanel is right up the middle on top of the base.look in there and see if you don't see a lot of hair and dirt stuck up inside.there are some screws on the bottom that you need to take out to remover the cover.then the cover comes apart in two pieces to allow you to get to the suction chanel.please leave some feedback.i hope i was some help to you

No suction


Roomba does much of its cleaning by the brush and roller on the bottom, but an important part is the little fan at the back of the debris bin which provides 100% of the 'suction.'
First, take off the vent cover on the back of the debris compartment and start Roomba on a mission. You will see the little turbine spin (if it's working) and probably a little dust cloud will come out.
It may not be working at best efficiency, however, because dirt gets sucked into the housing and blocks much of the air flow. Now that you know what the fan/turbine looks like (it's quite small, only the size of two stacked silver dollars), peer down into the larger opening of the debris bin and view the turbine from the other side. Chances are there's some crud stuck down there which is impeding air flow. (There's a hollow part of the turbine where the air is sucked into before being expelled out the back, that's probably filled with pet hair/dust/etc.) Clean that out using a long knife, chopsticks, or anything else that can reach down in there. Bang the dust bin down (lightly) to dislodge any more hair that's up there and continue cleaning until it's all gone.
I've had 3 Roomba's and they all get hair stuck up there. I only have to do this once a year or so (multi-cat and dog household here!) but it makes all the difference in the world.

Hair gets stuck in upper filter basket instead of going into the lower basket that you are supposed to empty. It is a Bissell 37604 Lift-Off Revolution Pet Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner


Check both filters. If one or other is increasingly dirty, wash or clean it out. Also check the air waves leading to the bagless bin canister part. If one air way is blocked the remaining dirt will try and access the bin other way due to the natural vacuum suction aspect.
