Re: hoover shampooer

When you place the recovery tank on the machine, there is a mating of the tank to the motor intake and this directs the suction into the tank. Make sure the lid is on the tank correctly. You also should check that the seal on the motor intake is in place. Take the tank off the machine, and look on the front left area where the tank sits. There is a round intake and should have a black rubber seal sitting on top of it. Sometimes these seals fall off. If it is missing, check inside the machine around the intake and you may find it lying in there somewhere.

My carpet shampooer will not **** the water back up. It is a Hoover Steamvac Deluxe 1600.


Check the filters, make sure they aren't clogged. Also if this has the foam filter on the inside of the tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 is gap from the top.

The hoover shampooer will not extract the water from carpet, is it because the carpet is so low ?? the carpet is cleaning fine there is VERY poor underlay and then wood under that, worried about the wood...

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

How far down do i push the attatchment hose on the reconery tank it is very hard to push down on the hoover shampooer

you want the top of the attachment level with the top of the tank, this way it will create a seal so you have suction through the hose.

Drive went out on my Hoover Steam Vac Shampooer and brushes won't turn plus there's a burning smell coming from it. Only used it 6 times - bought it in March - 2008.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It sounds to me like you have multiple problems with your power drive; a burning smell and the brushes don’t turn, and the dop is on March, 2008 – the Hoover Steam Vac Shampooer has a one year factory warranty and it could be a broken part for the brushes won’t turn or a belt would cause the burning smell. If it is not the belt or broken part it probably is the motor of which you should take it to a authorized Hoover vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the Hoover factory cust serv listed below or the Hoover website for information. If it is the motor the factory authorized dealer will replace the part for the motor and the broken part for the brushes, if it is the belt that would be an out of pocket expense. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
