    My 5865-900 won't turn on either, and I don't think it's the motor, it's probably the switch. I cannot locate my manual so see about taking it apart and possibly repairing it.

Could be a switch or the power cord. Most likely the motor went bad.

Hi Cherie! To switch from tools back to floor you only need to disassemble the hose from the cleaner. Be sure to close the circular hose port on the nozzle. Hope this helps!

Hoover steam vac dual v makes humming noise and nothing else.


Is the overfill valve (the yellow thing) in the waste container stuck in the up/full position? Maybe it just needs to be rinses well to avoid it being stuck and shutting off the vacuum portion of the cleaner.

You might try running a solution of vinegar and water thru it to clean out the lines and spray nozzles. Also are the brushes turning when you are using it, that could also be the problem.

There are screws on the bottom to remove, then near the back on each side, the is a catch to release. Before you turn it over, there is a screw where the water intake is near the top to remove.

This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
